An animated explainer video can serve as one of the most effective methods of presenting your product or service to the audience. You can use them in online marketing on social media, on a landing page, in email marketing campaigns and even as an integral part of user journeys in web and mobile applications.

To bring this excellent marketing practice to reality, you may need the help of an experienced and trusted animated video production service provider. In this article, I'm going to overview the five animated video companies that lead the competition in Poland's market in 2021.
