I discovered early on that for me the magic lies in sounds. Especially when they come along harmoniously, as in the form of music. It's really amazing how you can evoke feelings with sounds - without saying a single word. Over the years, with a lot of enthusiasm and and countless experiments, I have managed to pursue my passion as a profession.

Every production is the result of the collaboration of many creative minds. Everyone at youstream does their part, but our customers also always contribute valuable ideas. While I contribute my part, I really appreciate it when the end result also achieves a certain effect. Be it as an emotion in the faces of the viewers or as a measurable result.

About us - youstream GmbH

youstream mission

To make your company more successful with videos. That is our mission. Your company becomes more visible with video. We increase conversion in a targeted manner throughout your entire customer journey.

This is how it works. It all starts with a good briefing.

  • What is the goal.
  • Who is the target group.
  • What does the customer journey look like.
  • What is the message.
  • What is the creative implementation.

From this comes the strategy, which takes into account not only the production but also the distribution. Because a video production is ineffective, without visibility and without conversion.

We also recommend the analysis of the activities. This is the only way to better understand your target audience and yourself in the long run. This is how we can make ourselves unbeatable in the long run.
