Video stars

Morley Glass is putting video at the heart of its marketing and customer care programmes and supporting installers to do the same, to provide customers and end-users with easy access to key information and resources in an increasingly online-first world.

The company is working with video marketing specialist Video Production 4 to create video content, with more than 50 productions already completed.

These serve many different purposes, from ‘how-to’ instructional videos to help installers and end-users resolve common maintenance issues so engineer visits can be minimised, to virtual factory tours, marketing presentations for its Uni-Blinds products, and insights into how its integral blinds are made.

Morley Glass is also supporting Video Production 4’s efforts to help the industry use video more smartly as society adapts to the Covid-19 restrictions. It is providing window and door installers with their own professionally produced 3D virtual showroom videos without the need for significant outlay, and some completely free of charge.

Their joint effort has already enabled 22 window and door installers to benefit who can ensure their customers can still visit their showrooms in a virtual, socially distant way to support the sales process. And this 3D showroom virtual tour offer is still open to installers, who can take advantage of by contacting Video Production 4’s Alan Tisch in the first instance.

Ian Short, MD of Morley Glass, said: “Alan is a dynamic video marketing professional who is easy to work with and understands how to communicate the benefits of even the most technical subjects. He takes time to understand the USPs of every product or service, and with his creative flair he is highly skilled at bringing these to life in his finished videos.”

Alan Tisch co-founded Video Production 4 after a long career in broadcast television with BBC News, ITV and Sky, as well as setting up Liverpool FC TV.

Alan said: “Video is the most effective way to engage and connect with your potential customers but all too often it is difficult to know how to use it in the right way and simply too expensive for the modest marketing budgets of many SMEs. We can help by building a clear strategy that delivers video content with a very positive return on investment, and that is where I think we have been able to gain an edge by creating videos with purpose rather than just as a ‘nice to have’.”
