As much as the latest iPhone software does have some pretty nifty video functions on it, it is nothing in comparison to the software from professional camera equipment.

If you really want to create your own professional video, you will have to fork out a lot of money for decent start-up equipment. Professional video production companies are a cost effective alternative for anyone wanting to avoid these start-up costs. Even if you did purchase them, you’ll need to have someone on your team who knows how to use them, which is an additional expense.
Stay ahead of your competition
Your potential customers will compare you against your competitors before they make a purchase decision. If your competitor has a gleaming video that has been professionally produced, it will look outstanding against an in-house production that may lack a little vitality. If you want to be ahead of the competition – which you will do! – you need to have a professional video produced.
Are there any instances where in-house production might work? If you’re creating a video blog for your company, this would be ideal. Customers will expect a more formal approach to these, especially when they are created more frequently.
If you’re considering making your own corporate video production, ask yourself how far you would take a do-it-yourself approach to the rest of your marketing. Would you put your company website together? For advertising, would you use a professional printer or the office photocopier? Would you print and cut out your own company business cards? To help your company grow, professionalism is key! Everything that your potential clients see must look professional.
