Video Domination: Streaming 2015

In today’s market, consumers have the mindset of I want it now and I want it fast that it only makes sense that they’d rather watch a 1-3 minute video containing the important information that sums up the ins and outs of your business in a creative, visual manner instead of reading paragraphs of visually-unappealing text. Successful businesses all have videos that market their company, and the longer a business waits to produce one is another day their competitors stay ahead of the game. Customers watch more video. Plain and simple.


Stats to Consider:

  • 78% of people watch at least one video on Youtube
  • More than 500 years’ worth of Youtube videos are watching daily on Facebook
  • 700 YouTube videos are shared on Twitter every minute
  • 50% of mobile traffic is due to online video
  • 75% of executives watch work-related videos on business-related websites at least weekly
  • 70% of the top 100 search listings on Google are video results

Real World Strength Systems Video Shoot

BLM spent the morning at the Team Eckenrode gym in Kensington, Maryland to meet with our client, personal trainer, Dave Taylor. We conducted a video and photo shoot to coincide with the upcoming website we’re currently designing and developing for his company, Real World Strength Systems. As with most of our videos, we filmed an interview portion, highlighting the offerings and benefits of his company, as well as Dave working in his environment, training a few of his clients in various training demonstrations.

Below are some photos from the shoot to giving you a behind-the-scenes look at the production.

Marveling Redesign with Superpowered E-Commerce


Calling back to our Third Eye Comics Photo Shoot last June, we worked with local comic store, Third Eye Comics on a revamp of their website. The two main focuses were to implement both an easy-to-use online store as well as an active news feed that displays their latest highlights on a weekly basis. With that in mind, we designed and developed a simple and clean site that allows new customers and the Third Eye Faithful to stay up-to-date with all their recent comic releases.

From comics, to toys, to games, and everything in between the new Third Eye Comics makes shopping for comic-lovers and staying in the loop easy for anyone with any device.

Behind the Scenes: Maryland Wood Countertops Video Shoot

We worked with OE Custom a few months back on a new responsive website and company video. Most recently, we shot a commercial spot for one of their sub companies, Maryland Wood Countertops. The commercial gives customers a behind the scenes look into the process of creating some of their products as well as highlighting their offerings as a company. Take a look at some photos from the shoot below.







Unforgettaballs Photoshoot

Artist/entrepreneur Emily Wolfson contacted us in hopes of redesigning and developing her company store, Unforgettaballs. Prior to the redesign of the website we were tasked with taking photos of each of the baseballs for use on the website in the store, and also for different pages for advertisement purposes.


Photoshoot Setup

First we created a DIY (do-it-yourself) lightbox to create a nice, clean, product shot for each ball.


Baseball Photoshoot

Using the lightbox, we shot over 70+ products, at different angles and settings.


Hobby Shots

Besides standard product shots, we also set up specific and fitting scenarios to shoot the balls in for advertising on the website.

Easy-Commerce: Taking Your Storefront Online

With e-commerce accounting for 1.2 trillion dollars in the last year and 40% (forty percent) of online product purchases, there’s no reason that an online store solution couldn’t be beneficial to your business. And it’s only growing.

E-commerce can be of benefit in a number of ways as it can be one of the cheaper means of running a store, reducing the cost of having to hire employees for store hour-type scenarios. There is no time restraint in having an online store either. You’re open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, allowing shoppers to do their shopping at any hour of the day, from any device of their choosing (mobile, tablet, personal computer). So if you’re still on the fence about adding e-commerce to your business, this post will help you make the next move.

Adding Products

From t-shirts and toys to file downloads and subscriptions, you can add or edit just about any type of product in your online store. With an already easy to manage content management system (CMS) in WordPress, adding different variants like sizes, colors, or amount is just as simple as posting a blog. You can add or edit specific images per product so shoppers can choose whichever variant they deem best for their needs.

Taxes

In terms of taxing your sales, configuring local tax rates and classes is a breeze, allowing you to control precise rates per product, state, and country if needed.

Shipping

Whether it be free, flat rate, international shipping, or even local delivery or pick-up, your online store is customizable for any type of shipping needed for your business.

Payments

Besides credit cards, your online store can extend into multiple payment gateways including the popular PayPal, or even accommodating for mailed payments and checks.

A good, clean website is a great start to giving  past and future clients access to your company’s offerings. Adding an easy-to-use online store makes those offerings even more accessible to your clients. Start your online store today. 

Third Eye Comics Photo Shoot

Last week we took a field trip to Annapolis, MD to visit our new clients at Third Eye Comics. During our first visit to Annapolis location (the other located in Lexington Park, MD), we conducted a photo shoot to gather some photos that encapsulated the general vibe of the store. As we are currently in the process of redesigning and developing their website, as well as constructing an online store for them, we wanted to be sure to have some quality photography to use within the site. From comic books, graphic novels, and other awesome miscellaneous trinkets that run from wall to wall, we took photos that captured the feel and atmosphere that crowns Third Eye Comics as a comic-lover’s paradise.

The new website and online store should be ready by October 2014. Until then take a look at some of the photos from the shoot below.

Behind the Scenes: Boundary Stone Photo Shoot

A few weeks ago we took a lunch break to head over to Bloomingdale, in Washington, DC to visit our clients at Boundary Stone. During our visit we conducted a photo shoot while enjoying a wonderful lunch provided by them. We are currently redoing their marketing materials, as well as their website and needed new photography for both of these projects. From food to signature drinks, we took photos capturing the feel and atmosphere that has crowned Boundary Stone as one of “DC’s Best.”

Take a look at some of the photos from the shoot below.














Behind the Scenes: One Fairfax Video Shoot

A few months back the Bright Light Media team shot a real estate video showcasing the many features of a property currently for sale, One Fairfax. It was a two-day video shoot. We started at the offices of Cassidy Turley in Washington, DC to film the heads of the company for the interview portions of the video. We then head over to shoot the property on location in Fairfax, VA a couple days later. The on-location shoot began very early in the day in order to create that great time-lapse shot for the opening of the video and continued throughout the day to shoot all the various areas and amenities that One Fairfax has to offer. We took photos throughout the shoot to give you a look behind the scenes of the final product, which you can watch above.
