Do you know where I can get a cartoon sales video made similar to this one..


I've tried typing in cartoon sales video on google but nothing comes up that is similar.

Any help would be much appreciated!!

    Try searching something like 'whiteboard videos'.

    They are quite expensive though, obviously.

    Yeah these are nice. I would expect to pay at least around 100 dollars per minute though.

      Post a job on odesk for doodle video or explanation videos. For decent ones you're looking at least $800- $1200 for a 2-3 min video. I didn't hire this guy but I liked his work see here: Demo (Hand Drawing style) on Vimeo you can search him on skype is name is George Jose from India

    Was searching for the exact thing! I think this kind of videos have a high sales rate. Too bad it costs at least $1,XXX.

    They're great videos and really are interesting to watch.

    If you want a decent one though like others said don't expect anything under $1,000

      I love these but they are super expensive! I think if you have the money for it though it's worth it because they certainly pack a visual punch.

    AdToons.com and Ydraw.com are the two leaders in this space.

    Like Dave says...expect to pay around $1k per minute of sales video. What no-one has mentioned is that the $1K per minute cost DOESN'T include the sales script - which of course is also important.

    I want to make one of these videos for a product - but I can't afford $12K (video is around 12 minutes long). So I'm making my own (have sourced a studio, a video guy to do the editing and syncing to the script and adding sound effects, plus have some talent for the drawing).

    My question to anyone - I'm thinking of putting this together as a company and obviously it won't have a track record. So am thinking of offering the service at around $500 per minute to get it started.

    Would anyone be interested? (Of course before selling I'd have to demonstrate that the combination of resources can pull it off by using my own sales letter that's being made as an example).

    you guys are totally missing the boat here.

    You do this stuff once you ALREADY have an offer thats doing well. Then, you give them your converting script and they will add the visuals to it.

    if your stuff is already profitable on paid traffic, this could/should bump up conversions.

      I was wondering this myself. Too bad they are so damn expensive. So consider this: If you are going to pay 10+ grand for this you better have a crazy script to go with it or its just a waste. For a good copywriter your looking at $5000+. That is sure going to add up fast!

      I have the skill to make these videos, but I haven't got any service I offer to anyone. It's fairly easy made from my point of view though.

      You can clearly see the OP video is not drawn when filming, but anyway it's a cool way of marketing. Maybe if I get more time on my hand I'll offer some cheap one's to warriors. 1k a minute seems way overpriced.

    Honestly I am surprised they are as cheap as they are. This takes real natural talent to do well, not just manipulation of a software program.
    You are? Because I can make these and it's not that big a deal. I can see how these videoes are made and it will not take that much time and effort as stated!

    Easy to solve.
    There is bunch of qualified people of fiverr and most of them are eager to do "more" for "more".

    Contact them, deliver your sample, and see what they will have to offer.

    Any qualified guy in this field will be able to make something "similar" - we used a lot of fiver gigs for our our own campaign on mothership and the results were fine.

    But let me tell you this: We did achieve much results when we reduced to whole affair to technical aspects. You can't seriously expect anybody to do a lot of brain work for 5 bucks. So do some brainstorming for yourself, cough up some really clear ideas, and then let them do the technicalities for you. And if they want more than just 5 bucks - hey no problem, right?

  • Hey guys, it's true that it costs quite a bit to get started on these, and I recommend that when you do - have a firm that does great copywriting combined with the right storyboarding, drawing and editing to get the best effect.

    One key thing though - have a great product in place before proceeding, as you do not want to overpromise and underdeliver - especially when you're using whiteboard animation which can be very persuasive when done right.

      As for conversion, I'm surprised no-one has mentioned the split-test on truthaboutabs.com - see Video Sales Letters by AdToons--make more sales than long form copy ; you can see from the screenshot in the second paragraph looking like a conversion difference from 0,62 % with the old one to 1,13 % with the adtoons one for Mike Geary.

      One factor to take into account though, is if this was done right after the introduction of the video scribe. I read an interview with Tom Venturo a while back and when they changed from a long sales letter to VSL - their conversion shoot through the roof temporarily, probably due to the change itself. After a while the difference levelled out more, with a VSL + long sales letter combo converting the best.

      By the way, does anyone know who did the fatburningfactor video scribe above ? It looks slightly different vs. truthaboutabs and fatburningfurnace.

    ya.. not really the same thing.... thats a predone template... maybe you paid to have it slightly customized... we're talking about complete videos designed specifically for your offer/script.

    Why you need a Sales Video to increase conversions

    I am curious why people like these types of videos and how much they have been tested. I hate watching them, it's distracting and I'd MUCH rather watch a person or even a Powerpoint with slick graphics than someone drawing.
    I'd like to see some more information about how effective these whiteboard videos actually are.
    Do you know of anybody who has done split testing on these? Just because they look nice and are fun to watch, doesn't mean people will buy the product at the end of it.

    I'm promoting for an affiliate who has both regular Powerpoint promotional videos and the video scribe ones, and the Powerpoint ones convert much better. Now it could just be that his particular scribe video is cr*p, but still, I'd need some convincing before spending $15,000.

  • As davemiz and others have pointed out, custom and original whiteboard animations take a great deal of work from a number of artists and professionals to create something of quality. While many marketers will indeed only opt to use a video like this after establishing a tested and successful product, there are companies that offer great value at an entry level price for those looking to jump right in or launch a product or campaign with a scribe video.
