Video Thumbnails Remain in Google SERPS After Authorship Picture is Dropped
This is why Videolean exists


Conversation between a video producer and an early-stage startup called Clique. They needed a video produced cheaply and quickly for an investors pitch and an accelerator programme.

Transcript of the conversation:

JBI just downloaded your doc and I see the script is over 500 words. That’s more of a 3 minute video than a 1 minute video. For a good 1 minute video you need at least 2 weeks, 3 minutes would go much over that time frame. I’m telling you this cause I understand you need it done in a week.Thanks,
Antoin
Thanks JB. Maybe we can cut down the script, depending on the animation.I have an investors pitch on the 26th, and an application to an accelerator programme needs to be in by 30th - both of which need videos!Maybe I can get something produced cheaply and quickly for the above, which can lead on to a better budget video for the web site which takes a few weeks to perfect?
