What does an Account Manager do at StoryMe? 👨🏻💼
Account Managers like Vinnie and Nils help existing clients figure out how video fits in the content plan of a company and its different departments. Each company has its own specific challenges, and it’s the account managers' task to meet the company’s needs with video - They’re basically the clients personal consultant for everything video! So unlike other sales profiles, Account Managers act more like partners in crime to guide a company through video transformation.

What do Nils & Vinnie 💛 most about their job?
“The best thing about my job is that I get to work with such a wide variety of clients. One day, I’m thinking of social videos for a huge FMCG company like Pepsico or Vedett, and the next day I might be brainstorming with a small B2B company like Intuo to make a video about their history. That variety of clients also means that every week is different, and that’s what I look for in a job.”

“I get a lot of satisfaction from the fact that we can work together closely with a client to come up with a unique and effective video concept every time. Take IMEC for example: their business is a difficult one to put into video, and a lot of their products are extremely complex, or they might even still be in R&D. Then it’s really great to see how we can make their business tangible or help them visualize products in a cool 3D animation for example.”

What's an Account Manager's biggest challenge? 😧
“Sometimes we have to work with really sensitive topics. We’ve made videos about chronic diseases and self-harm prevention for example - These are powerful messages that we want to treat with a lot of respect, but still need to communicate in a professional video. That’s not easy, but it pays off when we end up with an impactful video that the client is happy with.”

“Like Vinnie said, working in so many different industries is fun, but it also makes our job very challenging. Our job changes with every specific client - we have to get to know their business and really put ourselves in their shoes to find the best possible video solution together - it’s not about selling a “one size fits all” kind of product.”
