- Opopop’s small team soon found that the time and money it takes to edit content in-house became overwhelming and so they went on the hunt to find a solution that could streamline the content editing process.
- They found it equally as time consuming to find a cost effective and reliable freelance editor or agency solution and so they were eager to test out Insense’s post-production service soon after its launch. They had already been partnering with creators on the Insense platform to source UGC for several months and so this new service offered an accessible solution to their post-production needs.
- This also came with the added benefit of being able to collaborate with creators and do post-production all from the same tool rather than having to use multiple platforms or outsourcing different parts of the process.
Insense’s expert post production team took the raw UGC, created by the creators that Opopop had partnered with, and transformed it into ready-to-use content for ads at an average cost of just $20 per video and a turnaround time of just one week.
To make the content as engaging as possible and boost their performance, the Insense team applied their expert knowledge in editing UGC and did the following: - Improved visual appeal: Part of the appeal of UGC videos are their spontaneous nature, however, this can cause them to be low quality. The visual appeal can be improved by correcting lighting and color in post-production. - Edited into a story: UGC videos are authentic and usually tell a story but are unscripted. This can create some pauses, stutters and sentences that are not essential for telling the story, which can lead to losing the viewer’s attention. It is crucial to edit these out to bring focus to the key talking points and bring structure to the video. - Added closed captions: As users scroll through their social media feeds videos will automatically play with no sound. 85% of users will continue to watch videos without sound. This makes closed captions essential to make the content enjoyable as well as accessible. - Added royalty free music: Even though the majority of users watch videos with no sound. It is still important to add music that fits the brand, especially when repurposing content for TikTok. For those who do watch videos with sound-on ,music can help make the content more engaging. Using copyrighted music may result in the content being removed.
These edits resulted in more than 14 million impressions, doubling the CTR and ultimately lead to more purchases.
