It is understood that if anyone wants to avail any kind of services they interview the person offering that services, before they move on with the hiring, as this is the universal law.
Similarly, a client always asks thousands of questions from a video animator before they appoint them to work for them, but it is also important for the animators to ask some important questions from the clients before they agreed on providing them the services.
Below are the four most important things that an animator should know about the client before taking their project to work on.
Question # 1: What Does Your Company Do?
It is mandatory that you need to understand what your client does, or what their company deals in. You need to ask them what kind of product their company sells, or what services they offer to their customers.
Question # 2: Who Is Your Aimed Audience?
You should know for whom you are creating the video animation, and who is going to see it. Having the knowledge about the audience will help you create the content of the video for that reason only, and apparently, the video with useful content will also help to grab the audience attention effortlessly.
Question # 3: Who Are Your Competitors?
Try to know who their opponents are so that you can have a peak in their work that what are they doing and what technique and strategy they are using. Knowing all this information will guide you to make a better version of the video animation for your clients and to serve a unique and improved product to get them pleased.
Question # 4: Do You Have Any Previous Experience Animated Video Company or Video Animator Before?
It must be in your knowledge whether the client has any previous experience of hiring anyone for the video animation services or not. Also, ask the clients who have they hired previously; all of this information is very mandatory to ask to understand who your competition is and how large shoes you have to fill. If the client has any previous experience, then it would be your job to provide them with the best output as there is a reason they are choosing you over their previous animators.
If the client does not have any previous experience, then it is your job to deliver the best quality results so that when they needed the video animation services, they will directly come to you rather than knocking on someone else’s door. It is your duty to provide them with a satisfactory product to make them feel that their money and time has been valued.
