The Art of Storytelling through Video

Almost 93% of brands say they got new customers due to the videos posted on their social media accounts. Nearly 61% of companies say that video content is a major part of their marketing plan.

Video is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to launching at any stage of business growth when it comes to getting your message out. Which is why I’m talking to two of our favourite video storytellers Bibi Akano and Oladapo Popoola, Founders of Kettle Plug Media

Introduction to Ola and Bibi

ladapo is a natural problem solver who is always looking to lead with value. With experience within Operations and having grown a YouTube channel with a loyal audience, Oladapo noticed the need for businesses to embrace video content and social media as a key part of a wider growth strategy. Seeing the reaction to Kettle Plug Media's work and the results achieved for clients, Ola is now firmly focussed on providing solutions to businesses with strategy and video.

Bibi Akano is a young creative entrepreneur with extensive education in Film Theory, and Media Production. She has fused her acquired knowledge as an independent Filmmaker, with her experience as a Video editor for clients like Deutsche Bank, KPMG and NHS, to better provide video services that could do more than entertain, but lead towards a greater goal. She co-founded Kettle Plug Media to help both corporate and commercial businesses, reach their goals, using cinematic video and marketing strategy in a meaningful and purposeful way.
