I need to get an explainer vid done. I know there are DIY products like RawShorts.com. Any other suggestions? I may want to outsource this rather than do it myself. I need someone who can help build the story board, develop the video and handle the narration. Any recommendations on an agency who can do this at a reasonable cost?

There are plenty of people/groups who can do this. Define your budget and this will inform your choices better. Also, make certain that the explainer video is supportive of your brand. Inexpensive videos often run contrary to your brand objectives.

I used Fiverr to make an animated explainer video a couple weeks ago with professional voice over. Was only $300 + Fiverr fee for a woman out of Israel. I did the storyboard as no one knows your story better than you. They did the rest within about a week and I had her make two revisions. Easy to work with and did a good job.

If you want actual video, high quality ones around here start about $5K and skyrocket from there. Of course their are lower budget providers, but you get what you pay for.

Hi Richard, the type of video you needreally depends on your objective.
Here at Noble Digital we do customer acquisition, and this video we did for a Sharktank company (you probably recognize) has been getting them new user signups consistently for 15 months straight and still going strong. This is a top funnel video designed to bring you traffic. (the video has paid for itself several times over. So cost is irrelevant here) But Im sorry Fivver videos are not going to move the needle for a seed startup.  

Meanwhile, once people do come to your site, they're ready to learn more and an explanation video, can help clarify your product/service and shorten the sales cycle and engagement time on your site. This is mid-funnel video.

make a PPT with a simple voice over and show it to a few people outside your business area of focus (the further out the better) and play it for them and make sure they "get" your point. The video will make a pretty presentation of your ideas, so you need to first start by confirming your messaging is on point and intuitive.

I've used a firm called Levitate in San Francisco several times for animated company videos. Their work is very good and prices seem reasonable.

Thanks everyone. Lot's of good suggestions and offers to assist. Not sure what a vid costs these days but I'm not looking to spend a large amount. I just need something that conveys the value proposition of a tele-health company I invested in.

My suggestion is to consider what type of video you really want and see if the production firm has done anything like that before. Otherwise, your project can turn out nightmarish. For instance, I recently finished this new project here  https://vimeo.com/157019302/77e99009ab which took almost 9 months to completion with me producing most of the content myself, because the video firm was not able to inject the emotional tough that I required for this project.
