Digital Footage Service Video Jaguar Thrives During Pandemic

Sponsored by Monday Properties and written by ARLnowStartup Monday is a weekly column that profiles Arlington-based startups and their founders, plus other local technology happenings. Monday Properties remains firmly committed to the health, safety and well-being of its employees, tenants and community. This week, Monday Properties is proudly featuring 1000 and 1100 Wilson (The Rosslyn Towers).

Video Jaguar may be based out of Arlington, but CEO Tim Sumer said having an almost entirely digital service has helped it thrive while many other businesses struggle during the pandemic.

The company bills itself as “the world’s easiest video ad maker for businesses and agencies.”

“Video Jaguar is a cloud-based video maker designed to help business owners easily create professional video ads, real estate videos, and more in five minutes and a few clicks,” Sumer explained. “Video Jaguar allows anyone, on any budget, to create professional marketing videos with no technical skills needed. Users can create unlimited videos that they can use to promote their business or sell to other businesses for any price they like and keep 100% of the profits.”

Like Storyblocks, another Arlington-based video footage company, Video Jaguar has seen an uptick in sales as companies unable to send people out to capture original video turn to online services.

“We have actually seen an increase in sales, of around 20-25%, during the pandemic,” Sumer said. “I believe this is because many businesses are cutting back on costs by switching to digital solutions, especially now since more people are online. With Video Jaguar, businesses can automate their marketing by being able to create videos and then scheduling them to post on all social media channels; eliminating the need to outsource these tasks or hiring someone.”

The video service also allows users to automatically post videos across seven video hosting platforms, including TikTok.

“Every month we add new video templates to the template bank, which already has over 550 premium video templates to choose from,” Sumer said. “Other software upgrades and new features are automatically applied every month as well.”

Sumer also said operating out of Arlington has been helpful for making contacts that have helped the company weather the pandemic.

“Being in Arlington has many benefits, such as the close proximity to the nation’s capital, and the number of tech companies popping up in Arlington is constantly growing,” Sumer said. “This area is filled with many businesses that we can easily connect and collaborate with.”
