Affordable explainer videos + the K.I.S.S. Principle

Keep it simple, stupid!  Also known as the “KISS Principle.”  The saying has been around since the 1960s, but seems more relevant now than ever. People want quick, easy, and painless. They want simple. In fact, according to this Harvard Business Review article, the biggest driver behind a consumer’s decision to purchase is simplicity. And there’s nothing stupid about that.

Gisteo Starter projects embrace the K.I.S.S. principle to deliver cheap explainer videos designed to achieve the results you need, without breaking the bank.
