Open for Business - Future Proof Films
The coronavirus pandemic has caused huge disruption to the economy, impacting businesses of all sizes across every sector.
Despite the seven Connect Derby buildings being closed for 10 weeks, our enterprising tenants have stayed open for business, finding different ways of working and promoting their goods and services. Here's a snapshot of some of the great work they’ve been doing.
What products and services do you offer?
We offer Video marketing (as well as other digital marketing services like PPC and website design).
How are you doing things differently during lockdown?
We've launched a new remote filming service, which is shot by the client themselves, but on professional equipment (that's easy to use) and then creatively edited and put together by our team: https://futureproof.film/remote/
What have you learned about yourself and your team during this time?
We knew that marketing - and especially video marketing - was going to be important during social distancing, especially as more people are connecting on social media than ever before. So, pulling together a full service in a short time was a great team effort.
What positives (if any) have come from working differently?
Internally, we're more direct and decisive with what we're doing - communicating with the people or departments that we need to. This helps get feedback and notes and moves things forward quickly so we can deliver top-notch assets and services to our clients efficiently.
Oh, and we're saving lots of money from not eating out together all-the-time (though we would happily return to doing this tomorrow if we could).
