Here at One Firefly, we’ve been teasing the launch of our brand-new personalized video service for the past few weeks — we hope you caught our livestream on Facebook last week, but if you didn’t, catch up here.
And now, we’re almost ready to bring this new service — called Video Pioneer — to market. Video is the fastest-growing type of content in 2022, and personalized video can help custom integrators showcase their people, facilities, and projects in a compelling way and engage prospects and existing clients on their website. Additionally, personalized video is a powerful tool to differentiate your business and stand out in your local marketplace.
We’ve already brought Video Pioneer to early-adopters in our industry, including our client Relative Home Systems. We worked with Ian Dohalick, Partner at Relative Home Systems, and his team to produce unique video content for their website. Keep scrolling to hear his thoughts and learn more. And make sure to watch our latest video below with more details about Video Pioneer!

What are the biggest hurdles preventing professionals in our industry from producing video for their websites? According to a survey we sent to One Firefly clients last month:
The video production process — from strategy and pre-production to editing and deployment — is a time-consuming venture. Sourcing, interviewing, and selecting a videographer, developing a creative strategy and shot list, managing the project, and overseeing post-production editing, color-correction, and website deployment optimization for unique video content can take anywhere from several weeks to several months of dedicated time.
Ian and the Relative Home Systems team (like many of our integrators) are too busy running a business and serving their clients to dedicate the time, research, and resources necessary to produce professional-looking videos.
Our Video Pioneer solution is a game-changer for our industry. One Firefly has an extensive history of producing industry-focused video, starting with the UI University collection in 2016, and continuing with the creation of the Mercury Pro media library in 2019, plus custom video production for well-known industry brands like Savant and Bravas. The Video Pioneer turnkey service takes the primary obstacles to personalized video production — time, resources, and knowledge — out of your hands and delivers a VIP experience from start to finish.
The Relative Home Systems video shoot began with a pre-production kickoff call with Ian, his team, and a dedicated video project manager from One Firefly to discuss the goals for the shoot. From there, One Firefly managed the entire process from pre-production through posting and management.
Our team managed all pre-shoot logistics and planning, arrived on location the day of the shoot, and directed the client and captured all planned video footage, plus a little extra. The shoot day consisted of multiple locations, which the client secured and prepped well ahead of time. The on-site shoot went smoothly because the client was prepared with all team members present and dressed appropriately for the intended shots, the company vehicle was clean and ready for use, and the team came with positive spirits and were ready to take direction from the videographer.
Afterward, the One Firefly team identified the best shots, color-graded and edited the clips together, and determined the clips that would look best on each website page. Finally, we deployed the finished product on four pages of the Relative Home Systems website.
“They shot amazing coverage of our team and showroom to help us tell our story to everyone who visits our website. We as an organization are just too busy to undertake this type of project ourselves — that’s why we couldn’t be happier One Firefly not only managed everything, but had a fast turnaround time from production to posting.”
- Ian Dohalick, Partner at Relative Home Systems
Ian and his team couldn’t be happier with the service and final product they received from
One Firefly. Personalized video has transformed the look and feel of their website, allowing them to showcase their skilled team, services, and showroom in a compelling format that attracts and engages prospects, existing clients, and job seekers.
“If you’re ready to invest in video to market your company, I highly recommend the team at One Firefly. They truly understand our industry and the marketing needs specific to us. They handled the entire video production process from start to finish, and delivered a VIP service with a beautiful finished product that really enhances the look and feel of the Relative Home Systems website."
- Ian Dohalick, Partner at Relative Home Systems
