Create An Awesome Explainer Video Up To 200 Words

Do you waste huge amount of time in your research process? Do you have manual repetition in your data analysis? How many of you have chaos in your research process?.

In today’s day and age technology should work for you not other way around. Don’t you think wasting time of your highly qualified research analysts and research officers is not a good idea. They are busy with manually collecting the data on spreadsheets and word documents. Or They are busy with communicating with teams only via emails or chat. We believe they deserve a online platform to automate most of their work. They should have a system that can automatically calculate the score card and generate the feedback report by a click of a button.

We at 73bit are working hard to achieve this by creating Probench a online reporting and bench marking platform. Probench is the outcome of our long running relationship with the organizations that currently use our system. It was designed from the beginning to place tools in the hands of the teams who run the surveys. So that the team can focus on what they do best research and getting insights from the data collected. It will be customized and configured for your in few weeks.

Do you want to know if Probench is for you? Book a FREE Candid Investigation Session Now! Lets discover that together.

NOTE: I would like to have a call of 15 minutes to explain the imagination I have for this intro video. Also I need feedback every 2 days on progress to clear any doubts (VERY important for me)

Conversation with Chris

His profile is https://www.fiverr.com/chrisakanno12

Me: Any updates?

Him: I am still on the job
I am doing my best to give you a perfect job. If I need anything I will let you know

Me: Thanks. If you have any doubts please let me know. I need the video on 1st 3 question should be attention seeking.

Him: Please listen to this female UK voiceover that I plan to use for your animation.
I spent days looking for the perfect voiceover and I believe I have found it.
See the attachment
21:43 August 16, 2017
Him: Please if you like the female UK voice over , please give me your reply immediately so that I can continue working. I personally believe that this voiceover is perfect for the job.
I await your immediate reply
21:46 August 16, 2017
Him: Please the logo you sent me is 73bit logo. Do you have a separate logo for probench or is the logo that you sent me the main probench logo. Please I need your response as soon as possible
03:36 August 17, 2017
Me: Sorry for the late reply, but I have not got any notification. The logo I have sent should be fine. only put that on top right. The voice over felt too formal like a speech
and computer voice. I would like it to be more conversational or story telling.
14:11 August 18, 2017
Him: I am almost done with the animation already and I think it’s perfect because I contracted the voiceover to a professional British female based In UK and she’s one of the top rated sellers on fiverr. I can assure you that the voiceover blends perfectly with the background music, sound effects and audio. Take my word on that.
14:14 August 18, 2017
Me: Ok, I will trust you on that.You are the professional.
Him: As for your animation, I am sure that you will be pleased with the final piece and if you need modification, don’t hesitate to contact me. I will keep working until you are satisfied.
Me: Alright. Thanks for the assurance.
Him: Thanks for ordering. Here is your delivery. I highly appreciate you for your patience, understanding and teamwork with me on this project. If you have any revisions, please let me know so that i can make the necessary corrections and deliver the best job service to you. If you are pleased and satisfied with my work, I will highly appreciate that you give me a 5 star rating and review. Also, I will gladly accept any tip you offer. I will also love to work with you on many more awesome projects. Thanks for ordering and have a blessed day.
05:13 August 19, 2017
Me: Thanks a lot. Overall great job. We have few correction/feedback based on
our product specification. Attached are the screen capture at the time in the video and
mentioned are the correction. File name are given in terms of the time
when it occurs in the video.
Please don’t hesitate in case you have any questions.Here are the attachments.11_sec38_seconds.png1_min_05_sec.png1_min_15_sec.png

1_min_27_sec.pngHim: Thanks for your wonderful feedback. I can and will implement the changes you requested. You dont need to worry about that. Please i will need some extra time to do these changes and deliver a perfect final job to you. Please accept this resolution request to extend the delivery by 3 days extra.

22:17 August 19, 2017

 

Me: One more request I had there is a line with says few weeks. Can be change to 2 weeks? Both text and voice.
22:29 August 19, 2017

Him: Its not possible to change it to 2weeks since we have finalized the voiceover already and besides it’s better as few weeks because few weeks can be 1 week or 2weeks as you desire. I think it’s okay the waY it is. Sometimes less is more
22:31 August 19, 2017

 

Me: One more request, Can you add the text on the last screen as shown in the image attached. you can choose best font and color which goes. So that if the video is shared people knows whom to contact. Does it make sense?

13:16 August 21, 2017

1_min_30_secHim: Yes I will add it no problem. 

Him: Please I am very sorry for delivering by this time. My Internet service has been very slow since today. Please don’t be offended, I am very sorry.

I did not do the virtual conversation you requested because it wont blend well with the animation because too much animation can make your targeted audience miss the message. Text is better because it will leave a perfect and long lasting impression in their minds. and it gives a wider scope compared to just virtual conference. The rest of the changes you requested i did them all. I believe you have a perfect job now and i bet that your message is conveyed properly with this final animation.Thanks for ordering my GIG, I really do appreciate and love working on your project.

I believe i can really help you do more projects that will definitely help you promote your product or service and make huge profit.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to work on this project, I believe the job I have done for you will convince you that I am the best person for the job.

If you are convinced, which I believe you will, I look forward to you ordering more.

Thanks for ordering and thanks in advance when you order for more.

I will appreciate that you give me a 5 star rating and excellent review.

I will gladly accept any tip you offer.

Check attachment for your order.

Me: I agreed with your remark on the session. There are 2 typo revision rest looks fine.

1_min_15_sec_rev_2.pngHim: Thanks for your reply. I will make the necessary revisions you need. But please i will send you a resolution request of 2 days so that i can take my time and do the changes so as to deliver a professional work. I will send you the resolution request now, please accept it immediately.
Thanks

1 Free & Easy tool to track your social media referrals

Recently one of my friend asked me below mentioned question.

How can I track how many clicked the referral link via my Instagram bio?

I wondered there should be an easy way without setting up your website and manage it via google analytics. It was a quick search and easy use. The answer is use bitly.com and its Free.

The use case explained below, Say you have an Instagram account and you are promoting a brand. For example purpose you are promoting www.nike.com

Login to bitly via your Facebook or Twitter account. You can also create a new signup. I created a new signup. Once you login you will see below screen. Bitly

Next you click on top right orange button Create Bitlink. You will see the screen below. First you paste the long link of your referral in the box which says “PASTE LONG URL”. Example: www.nike.com  Click on create button on the bottom of the page.

CreateLink

You will moved to another page displayed on the right side EDIT BITLINK. On Edit page update the “TITLE” box as some meaningful name – Instagram (Any social media site you want to track the source from). Then click Save.

SaveLink

That’s it. You are done. Your link is ready for tracking. See below.

ViewStats

Now it is time to test. Copy the link and paste it into your Instagram bio. I tested it for my site and below is the result on your dashboard.

CountClicks

The same with full screen and additional dashboard information for multiple links.

CountClicks_FullPage

If you have any further question add it on the comments below. I will try to answer them.

Happy Tracking!!!

The week after the big training week

You must have taken at least 1 business training or any other training to improve your business and life. I did it many times before and a more recent one which is an year long program. A big commitment as a team. I was very excited and all set for the transformation it will bring to my business.

The training was magnificent something I have never experienced before.

  1. I felt lot inspired and more confident of making my vision a reality, even completed a long pending blog post I wanted to write long back. It was all good feeling, all the idea were already possibility in my mind. The life was all high!
  2. Chatted all possibility with my business partner, It was a party!!! We discussed  and discussed  all the to-do we can do, and we must do immediately. We stopped all the things we were trying to do and just went into all that happened and started discussing on all points we came across. I wonder it was more thinking and talking.
  3. Created a whats app group of all the students who came to the training. We all talked about all the amazing experience. Shared all the pictures and video. Appreciating each other strengths and wished each other for all success.
  4. Told all the detail stories to my wife. I was so pumped with all the experience from morning 9am till 3am in the night. It was all small story that popped up here and there. I keep telling her all the time for the week after my training.

WHAT I DID NOT DO?

I did not took any action in my real business that would move my Business forward.

Which means the week before my training and week next after my training was same. We worked in the business. For those who got it, will understand. For other I will explain it some other time.

Its with heavy pain I am writing this.

I took stock of my actions in the following week, I had to document this so that it may help some one out there. I think that, this is the number 1 reason why all the training you do doesn’t help. However having said that. I have got a way to implement all the learning. Let me try that and bring it to you how it turned out. Remember I am at the same position as your are in the journey of Entrepreneurship

Happy Entrepreneurship !
