A whiteboard video is a creative marketing solution. It is used to explain a product, introduce a new policy at work, or simply market a brand or individual. A whiteboard video involves time lapse or stop motion effects that coincide with text to create a very eye-catching video. In the video, images are drawn in or strategically placed in real time to really grab the attention of the viewer. Essentially, a whiteboard video is like a short film that tells you a story – frame by frame – through creative writing, content specific cartoon images, you can even have music playing during your video to enhance the viewer’s senses even further.
Whiteboard videos first came into the national spotlight in Janurary, 2007. UPS, United Parcel Services, created and aired a series of whiteboard videos in a national campaign. The videos were a huge hit for UPS and these ads ran for several years. In 2010, a non-profit group in England took to YouTube to show off their whiteboard video skills. This group, the Royal Society of Arts, gained the Number 1 status for non-profit companies on YouTube in 2011, with over 46 million views of their work.
