MCCP started out as a video production company that also offered expertise in managing and producing bespoke events for the corporate sector. More recently we have added SEO and digital marketing expertise to our skill set with the recruitment of a Head of Digital.
The 3 strands of our business have a natural synergy and have evolved from the needs our customers but how did we arrive at our current portfolio of services? From our early days as a corporate producer working as part of ITV we found that many of the videos we produced were being used at events and conferences. We were also being asked to film more and more events so that the content could be made available long after the delegate badges had been recycled.
As a result of the reliable, creative and affordable services we provided some of our customers asked us to get involved in the planning and production of their events. Very soon we found that we were getting calls for our event management expertise which quite naturally meant we then produced videos for the events we were staging for them.
Since those early days of MCCP, when dial up tones were synonymous with the internet and buffering was an accepted part of trying to watch a video on line, video is now readily accessible on more devices than ever. And there’s dramatically more competition to get your video watched – 300 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute. So, we found that some of the impact of our beautifully crafted videos was being lost amongst the plethora of productions out there. Around 2007 Google integrated video into its universal search offering meaning that websites featuring video gain a significant SEO advantage but only if the video is incorporated into your web site in ways that Google prescribes.
So, it seemed natural to look at ways to make our customer’s investment in video work harder for them which is why we now offer SEO and digital marketing services.
Our three areas of expertise are a natural fit. Each one requires creativity and innovation to stand out in the market place. All 3 disciplines require attention to detail, meticulous planning and excellent technical expertise to be successful. And all the activities are scalable according to budget and time constraints.
