Welcome to Step 1. Planning your narrative can take as little as 5 minutes if you simply copy the list of interview questions or script below. Modify as needed. We recommend using a script for most types of small business marketing videos after warming up the speaker with interview questions.
What to Do: Choose the questions that best suit your small business.
How it Works: The videographer asks the narrator the questions as if in an interview. The spoken questions, as well as "um"s and pauses are edited out later.
Below are Biveo.com's best suggested interview questions.
- What problem were you having before contacting Techcompany?
Prior to contacting Techcompany, the phone system we were using did not have the full functionality we were looking for, and the performance wasn’t optimal.

We wanted to make sure we had a very positive presentation to our clients when they contact us, and by switching to Techcompany, we feel we have what we need, and what our clients expect of us.
- How did you learn about Techcompany?
We found out about Techcompany just researching on the internet. We had just started exploring options. I spoke with another friend about voice over IP and the benefits it has, and that’s when i began conducting my own research on it.
- What persuaded you to end up choosing Techcompany?
I ended up choosing Techcompany because of the functionality and the value.
- How important is Techcompany’s service to your business?
The phone service is a lifeline to our business. Email is impersonal. By reaching out via phone call, we can have more of a connection with our client.

My name is John Smith with Techpro Manufacturing of Atlanta, Georgia.
