If you are looking to create some animated marketing videos to promote your business or product, one of the first things you consider creating should definitely be a whiteboard animation video.
They’re simple to produce

People love animation
If we ask you to think back to the Saturday mornings of your youth, one of the first things you think about will probably be the old kid’s cartoons you used to watch. Because we all grow up watching so many cartoons, a nostalgic connection with the medium is forged that stays with us for a lifetime.
Whiteboard animations tap into this nostalgic feeling, so the presentation of the video already has people on board before they have even viewed any of the content.
Whiteboard animation works
Whiteboard animation videos have time and again proven themselves to be one of the most effective marketing tools available. They often prove that they have the capability to go viral, boost conversion levels and compel people to share them on social media.
In fact, a person who starts to watch a whiteboard animation video is more likely to watch the whole thing than they are an interview or power point video.
