I've just watched the video or the first time, and as a new RIB owner it is a service that I would consider.

The video gives a real "feel" for the service you offer, and I feel anything to give "theatre" to your website is essential as technology moves forward.

So it's a thumbs up from me.

Hi Tim,

Just watched it for the first time and think it's very good.

Only one thing I think I would change with the voice-over: There's a bit where you say something like "after you've driven the boat at a safe and comfortable speed.." ..."We'll take you for a trip round the Solent". Might be better to say "We'll teach you how to drive at speed in the Solent".

As others have said it might also be worth having some shots (30 - 40 seconds max) of the more advanced courses at the end - night / rough weather etc so that it shows more of what you do and brings people on for the advanced courses. - If all a customer does is look at the video it could look a bit touchy feely and for beginners only. Some are lazy and won't bother to look at the rest of the site.

Pretty good though.

Duncan

Hi Duncan


I know what you mean and it is real hard to get the level right . For some speed can mean many things 40/50 knots so trying to choose the words carefully .


I pitched it purely at level 2 as this is the most popular course that 90% of our clients take , then I upsell the other courses when I have them as a captive audience It's not perfect I know and will maybe put in some other shots of the other courses later on. This is a test really If it does make an impact I am sure other schools will follow suit and I will need to have one done for the Jetskis and Motorcruising scheme all take time and money so seeing if this works.

Feed back so far is encouraging
Chers
Tim

Pretty good Tim. Now it looks exciting and makes me want to sign on the dotted there and then!

Quite possibly in the autumn.
You know I like it rough

(Not too mention it gives me the summer to brush up on my skills)

I thought the Mk2 version a fair bit better, and for the 90% of your students on the level 2 course I think that it hits the spot. For those going for the more advanced courses, they should know more or less what to expect anyway!
