Columbus is a unique community; how does Jumpstart Video complement that?
One aspect of the Jumpstart mission is to serve the community, so we provide a great deal of discounted video production services to nonprofits and community organizations. It’s because our video production operation is doing so well in Columbus that we are able to give back to the community.
That’s what I point to when I speak to how Jumpstart Video Productions complements what a unique and exciting market Columbus is: the video production we do for nonprofit or community entities. Sometimes this work is pro-bono or a donation of services, and that goes a long way towards supporting this vibrant and unique community.
There are many positive things happening in Columbus, and at Jumpstart Video Productions, we’re excited to be a part of those things. The way that we participate in the community is by continuing to offer donated or discounted video production services to nonprofits and community organizations.
In what way does Jumpstart Video operate that Columbus responds well to?
Jumpstart Video Productions employs video production professionals: videographers, editors, producers, directors, and motion graphics artists who live in Columbus. We are deeply embedded in the Columbus community through our clients, but also through the creative professionals who we employ. We provide for them an outlet to serve the community by making a living doing video production projects, but also by taking on additional projects that help serve the community, like the nonprofit and other video work we do.

One way to figure out how to make your business successful in any market, not just Columbus, is to look for prospects or businesses that you know (based on your research about what that business does) can benefit from your product or service. When Jumpstart Video Productions of Columbus reaches out to an area business, we do so because we know that our work can serve them and help them grow their business and help them be more successful.
In our research of evaluating whether or not a business would benefit from our service, there are cases where we look into businesses whose industry we don’t have a lot of expertise in. We identify that business as someone who may not benefit from what we do, in which case we do not reach out to that business.
Jumpstart Video specializes in small, fast-paced jobs, but also takes on larger scale projects. Which video package from Jumpstart Video does Columbus get the most “mileage” out of?
One thing that we like to do at Jumpstart Video Productions is to make sure that we do not have a crew mismatch. We don’t want a client to spend an extraordinary amount of time, money, and resources in developing a video that is well beyond what they need. It’s possible for a video production to go past the scope of its original mission if there is too much crew involved, too much video being shot, and too many resources being wasted.
Our goal at Jumpstart Video Productions is to make sure our client gets maximum return on investment by offering small-scale and large-scale video production services. In this way, we can nearly guarantee that the right amount of resources will be put into the project. We’ll always do exactly what the client asks, but we are sure to put the right number of people and the right set of equipment and the right amount of creative resources into a project. We don’t want a case where the client has spent far more on the video project than what the audience for that project is going to respond to.
By offering small-scale and large-scale video production services we can ensure that the client is well served by the services provided. The number one goal is audience response leading to return on investment.
What are businesses in Columbus looking for that Jumpstart Video provides?

In the case of television commercials, we want to attract clients or customers to our service or to our retail location or to our e-commerce website. In the case of a longform promotional film, we want to convince the audience that our viewpoint or cause or mission or message is worth listening to. In the case of a video for a non-profit, we want to convince the audience that the work we’re doing has meaning and brings value to the community and could change the world we live in, and the ultimate result of a non-profit video, in most cases, would be to raise funds to keep that nonprofit working.
