Animation Video Decision Maker, King, Ruler, Leader, Law Changer, and, Protector of all things animation videos.
You are the king of your company. Your product/services your kingdom. The world wide web is full of your loyal subjects… It’s up to you to remind them just how loyal they are. And how, pray tell, do you do that??? Animation videos.
From Peasant To Prince of Animation
Ydraw’s humble origins began because I needed a whiteboard animation video for my business. I did my homework and knew that I wanted to, in a short amount of time, explain what my product did… as opposed to a flat, static photo of what it was. An animation explainer video was the perfect solution. A woven digital tapestry to accomplish this with movement, emotion and excitement.
I embarked on a crusade, searching high and low, (way back in 2011) for someone to produce an animated whiteboard video for me. There were only 2 companies providing these types of videos. I came upon an example video produced by RSA Animate, a UK whiteboard company. I was completely mesmerized. I knew this was going to be the biggest thing since sliced bread… buttered with viral marketing potential. I wanted it… wanted it bad! Only one thing stood between me and my video marketing desire… a vast, bottomless mote that surrounded the castle of creation… the pricetag! This damsel in distressed me out. How could anyone pay $50,000 for a simple animation video?
$20,000-$50,000 for a RSA animation video!?!?
That’s a bunch of monarchy malarkey!
Thus Ydraw was born.
“If I can’t buy an animated explainer video… I’ll make one! How hard can it be?”
It was horrendous. 3 long weeks of trial, error, error, and more error but eventually we nailed it down. That video put us on the map. Immediately everything seemed to fall into place. We partnered up with some insanely talented artists and turned to YouTube for education. It’s wild to think that Ydraw came about purely from tutorials viewed on the Internet, but that’s how it happened. We filled our brains with After Effects, Final Cut, Photoshop and more, all from the Internet. We Googled our way down the road to riches. It was like an online Oxford. We were not tainted by industry standards nor did we try to compete with the few others that previously existed in the industry. By developing our own system and taking charge of our kingdom, we have been able to create quality videos that others cannot touch. Within a couple of months we took the crown as the top whiteboard video company and have since produced hundreds of Animation Video Drawings for companies like Disney to Oracle, to Ford to Proctor & Gamble. It’s good to be King.
A case for Animation Videos.
Times have changed. Consumers are the same, but the way in which they receive information has changed. In the past T.V., Newspapers, and Magazines were the main source of marketing. If you wanted to tap into an audience, you used the tried and true methods of advertisement.
Today, T.V. is DVR’d to avoid commercials. Newspapers sit untouched behind gas station dispenser glass, yellowing from the sun while more and more readers turn to the internet for their breaking news. Catalogs and magazines and even yard sales are now predominantly found online.
Here at Ydraw, we embraced the altered path of social behavior, morphed into Animation Video Elvis and we have left the “20th Century Marketing” building.
Kings make their own rules. If a law doesn’t fit their plans… They alter it until they get the desired outcome. If your current modes of marketing/advertising aren’t producing a profit…
“Off With Their Heads!”
We live in an “instant gratification” society now.
Fast, Fast, Fast… If you don’t catch ‘em quick, they’re gone in a click.
The world has changed… your business must change with it!

Royal Animation Proclamation
Hear Ye, Hear Ye… By Royal decree, It Is Hereby Declared: Animation VIDEOS RULE!!!
Even with the extensive research behind the benefits of video marketing, many marketers are still hesitant to use animation video on a consistent basis. Some see the abandonment rates of live video and decide the return on investment (ROI) isn’t high enough. It’s a fair concern. Live video can lose 50% of its audience in 15 seconds, a blink of an uninterested eye. Like I said, we live in an instantly gratified world. Attention spans are short and most live videos creatively fall flat… (like the world) (Ha ha… just kidding) (The world is round… trust me.) Here’s where your Ydraw animated video comes charging in on it’s noble steed, suited in armor of wisdom and wit, waving the flag of marketing majesty!
