Explainer Video is like the salt in a soup. They are mandatory for every successful marketing strategy, without salt your marketing will be boring to your audience.
As you’re planning resources for the video, the infographic suggests that production of an average explainer video breaks down into 11% of the time being spent on the initial design, 16% on the script and voiceovers, 55% on the animation and design, 16% of production, and 2% on editing.

And perhaps most important, review the sample of your partner of choice, see what they have done in the past and if they understand your mission. Creativity is key and a good story needs to be told in the right way.
