How to Improve Your Marketing with an Animated GIF

(Last Updated On: March 12, 2020)

We’ll create your animated GIFs

animated GIFAn animated GIF is a small, short video that will keep repeating until the viewer stops it.

Animated GIFs help to get the viewers’ attention. If a picture is worth a thousand words, a moving image can be worth much more than a thousand words.

The moving image above is telling people that we design websites. Furthermore, it is saying that we will design a business website for as low as $400. It gives the URL of a page with more information.

(The animated GIF below that does not have a link because it would link to this page.)

Numbers to keep in mind:

  • Maximum dimension of 500 x 500 px
  • Maximum number of colours that will show up: 256
  • Maximum size that can be uploaded into WordPress: 2 MB
  • We charge from 85 – $141 to make an animated GIF according to your specifications.

Note that we can make them into clickable links. People click on them to go to a page, post or section of a page. See example.

Animation on Instagram

Would you like us to repeat an animated GIF several times in an MP4 file? For an extra $25 we can change your animated GIF into an MP4 file that is just under one minute long. Then you can promote a repeating short video on Instagram.

Careful of too much movement

If a visitor is trying to read a page, excessive movement can be too distracting. Sometimes you want to keep the movement quite subtle.

Elsewhere on this website, we are telling people that we can create a quiz for them. The quiz can be added to their Facebook page to help promote their business.

They can have, say, 15 questions. 14 will be interesting & entertaining to the visitor. One question can be specifically about our client’s business.

We can have the graphic you see here that has very little movement. There is just enough movement to get the visitors’ attention.
