90 Seconds is a simple-to-use video creation platform that connects brands with video creators worldwide through a streamlined workflow, according to its Co-founder and Vice President of Strategic Growth, Mr Nick Erskine-Shaw. After the client has input essential information such as budget, project due date and briefs about its creative vision, 90 Seconds will match the project with experienced creators that can best deliver the videos. Content plans can be revised via the platform before and after purchase.
Mr Erskine-Shaw said, "We've seen an increasing demand from clients in Hong Kong as corporate video is a big part of branding and marketing. In order to serve our clients better, we decided to have a physical presence here with Jessica Triffitt, our Business Director HK leading the way. The Hong Kong office will also be our North Asia headquarters helping us serve clients from the fast growing Mainland and Taiwan markets, as the city is close to both places."
He added, "Hong Kong is a highly strategic international market for the region. With many regional businesses and key decision makers based here, our entry into the market gives us the opportunity to continue building on our vision to create quality video at scale."
Associate Director-General of Investment Promotion, Dr Jimmy Chiang, said, "We're happy to see that 90 Seconds chose Hong Kong as its North Asia headquarters, leveraging the city's geographical proximity to the Mainland and Taiwan as well as its world-class Internet connectivity to take its business to the next level. We wish it every success in Hong Kong and beyond."
