Animoto video style: Proof Sheet
In operation for fourteen years, owner, Brad Frei has relied on a winning formula of rugged adventure and pampered comfort to delight his customers. Excellent service only takes you so far. His number one source of business comes from word of mouth of referrals. Enthusiastic river rafters are more than happy to tell family, friends and colleagues about their amazing vacation.
Create compelling video that’s inexpensive and easy.
Brad uses Animoto to amplify his customers’ enthusiasm. “Word of mouth advertising is the most important thing in our business. Animoto is the answer to our prayers. The videos we create amaze our customers and they are thrilled to share them with friends and family online,” Brad explains.
Clients receive a complimentary video immediately following their trip. Brad emails them a link to an unbranded video (which means it is exclusive to his company) and encourages his customers to share it online. He always makes sure to include his company logo and contact information in the video.
