The 2-Minute Explainer Company

We pioneered the explainer video for technology companies

Early 2-Minute Explainer video became subject of MarketingSherpa case study

One of the first 2-Minute Explainer videos (actually a Flash animation) was this one we wrote and produced to explain Business Process Management  software. It was featured in an April 2005  case study by MarketingSherpa, headlined  “Two-Minute Explainer Online Presentation Turns Confused Prospects into Eager Leads.”

We started specializing in videos for technology marketing in 2004 — that’s when we registered the trademark 2‑Minute Explainer®. The idea originated in our own sales efforts. We offered a variety of creative services for B2B/industrial marketing. As we researched our market by visiting web sites and reading news releases, we found that we had a hard time understanding the solutions described by enterprise technology providers.

We symphathized with salespeople trying to sell this abstract and forbidding-sounding stuff on the phone. And for their prospects trying to gather from text-heavy web pages how a solution might work for them. We saw at once that video would be a save a lot of time for the salesperson and the prospect.  And we knew it could be done with video. Since then, we’ve made hundreds of 2-Minute Explainer videos about tech solutions that are hard to explain. 

How we think about technology marketing videos

We believe your marketing video needs to deliver value to your viewer. We work with you to help make sure it does.

We believe your marketing video needs to deliver value to your viewer. We work with you to help make sure it does.

Our company is run by marketing executives who are just as interested in the business propositions we’re dramatizing as we are in the finding the right words and the illuminating motion graphics that will bring them to life. We understand that today’s prospects are researching potential solutions. They value learning. They don’t much care for being marketed to.

We get a thorough grounding in a solution’s value proposition before we illustrate it. We rely on substantial business experience and a highly collaborative process with your subject matter experts to deliver videos that are genuinely helpful in the buying process.
