A smart investment for any business

Narley Construction create some of the most impressive homes in the Manawatu. Stepping in to each new home is always a ‘Wow’ moment. Video marketing allows Narley to reflect and highlight the true essence of their work, giving the viewer a sense of each home’s unique character and an up-close look at every elegant and design choice.

Influence perception and Inspire action

CEDA – Manawatu conference series

CEDA’s task in promoting Manawatu’s conference facilities to a national audience was to open their audience’s eyes to a new view of the region. Coupling testimonials from trusted and passionate locals with footage that showed the energy, vitality and talent within Manawatu, CEDA’s campaign showed conference organisers they might have under-estimated what Palmy has to offer.

A Marketing Manager's take

If you keep an eye our Facebook or Instagram pages, you’ll have no doubt seen the work we’ve done with Norwood, New Zealand’s largest farm machinery retailer. Norwood have embraced video content in a big way in recent years, and have reaped the benefits.
We talked to Norwood Marketing Manager, Holly Killgour, about how they’re using video to connect with customers.

Video content is a really important part of our marketing strategy, and has been for a few years now. I’ve found it particularly useful in supporting the development of Norwood’s brand voice because it is often easier to convey tone and personality through video, compared to other mediums.

Creating engaging content that is valuable to our customers, whether that be because it educates them, entertains them, or inspires them, is an important part of our digital strategy. Video enables us to tell stories in unique ways, and generate greater cut through in a digital world where there are so many brands competing for the audience’s attention.

Video content is effective because movement enables you to catch the attention of the viewer, and convey a longer message compared to a static options.
