Our curiosity has us addicted to information. But curiosity doesn't have to kill the cat. Inspired by Vox’s brand journalism, the Best Explained Studio wants to break our screen addiction by satisfying curiosity with honest storytelling.
And we believe you can too.
Your audience wants to know why your labor is important. And without a compelling explanation, they will keep scrolling.
We are here to help explain your why.
But unlike the costly $100K price tags for Vox videos, we offer the same kind of explainers at an affordable price.

Marketers have a bad rep. But the reason is two fold: bad story telling and cultural cynicism. Bo Burnham called out both in his comedy special, Inside. But, instead of regurgitating hot takes, we responded with thought provoking content that changes the narrative.
The most effective way to position your services to the top of your industry is through generating videos and articles that transform culture and perspective. We do more than offer explainers, we help you think through the most insightful content for your industry.
But we customize the approach, media assets, and format across platforms. This makes your message more compelling and relevant to your target audience.

What if I told you there was a way to develop a killer strategy, test it, and then scale it to meet your business objectives – all under $600?
Thought-provoking content needs a thoughtful strategy. Understanding the secrets to both is the key to our success and yours.
Brands are the solution, not the problem. Brands are how you sort out the cesspool.

This video was used to enhance the SEO of a blog post on toslawyer.com. The site was receiving consistent traffic for questions about EULAs but wasn’t seeing high engagement from these visits. The average time on page was 17 seconds. After creating this video, we very quickly noticed higher engagement as well as improved ranking for related keywords. After 2 months, the average time on page was 3 minutes. The blog was no longer simply capturing traffic, it was engaging the audience and converting it.

Every business and start up is an endeavor to create something valuable. And my job as a brand storyteller to explain why that endeavor is worth the risk of failure. I started Best Explained because no one was offering small to medium size businesses the opportunity to tell their story in the unique captivating style of journalistic explainer videos. – I also just wanted an excuse to tell meaningful stories.
