The product vision

Engaging video content is difficult to produce - as well as expensive; most creative agencies don’t work with projects less than $10K. Yet, as social media changes, the appetite for video - produced faster and cheaper - is growing exponentially by the day.

This was created after undergoing a rigorous competitor and industry analysis, content and social media channel review and keyword research. This data and research driven approach meant that Folktale had the reassurance that they were targeting the right verticals with appropriate messaging in the best possible channels.

Work is ongoing with Folktale and the Marketing Services team on PPC and advertising campaigns, social media and content strategies and website and customer analysis to optimise and deliver the best value possible to the team.

The people who feel this pain most are content producers, bloggers and SME’s - or anyone who wants to make a video worth sharing!

Folktale seeks to make a way for people to easily create engaging video content, guided by creative experts. Using an interactive experience to navigate the user through the process, anyone will be able to create an engaging video.

When Folktale were ready to begin the journey of customer acquisition, the BlueChilli Marketing Services team developed a go to market roadmap and strategy for launch.
