Pro tips

5 tips to create better video ads

Creating show-stopping video ads for your business is possible, if you have Biteable in your toolbox. To make your video ads even better, follow these five best practices.

1. Keep it short

In general, limit your video ads to 30 seconds or less. This is enough time to cover the benefits of your product or service, but not so long that viewers lose interest and tune out.

When you create your video ad, also make sure you get to the point quickly. In the first five seconds of your video ad, make it clear exactly what you’re selling and how it will solve the viewer’s problem or make their life better.

Biteable’s video ad templates were all designed with this in mind. If you’re struggling with pacing and brevity, use one of these templates as scaffolding when you create your video ad.

2. Solve a problem

People spend money on products and services because they help solve problems. Your video ad should make crystal clear the problem-solving benefits of what you’re selling. Create your video ad with this at the top of your mind.

Avoid listing every product feature under the sun. Instead, focus on what really matters: how your product or service will make a difference in the customer’s life. If you can convey that information, the video ad you make will be much more effective.

3. Make your video ad entertaining

Showing the benefits of your product or service is most important, but don’t forget to also create video ads that are fun to watch. There are a lot of other ads competing for people’s attention. Yours needs to stand out.

One way to boost the entertainment value of your video ad is to make it humorous. You can also share interesting facts or make use of captivating imagery.

4. Brand your video ad

This should be a no-brainer, but it’s surprisingly easy to forget. Always include your business’ logo both at the beginning and at the end of your ad. Also, make your video ad even more recognizable by using your brand colors throughout.

Biteable video ad maker gives you an easy way to brand your ads. The brand builder feature fetches your logo and company colors directly from your business’ website and automatically applies them to any brandable video ad template or scene.

5. Give next steps

Last but not least, every video ad you create should include a call-to-action (CTA) telling viewers exactly what you want them to do after they watch the ad. Some of the more common CTAs are “Buy Now”, “Learn More”, and “Join Our Email List”.

If you make your video ad in Biteable, it’s easy to include a clickable CTA button at the end. Follow the instructions to add your CTA button with a few simple clicks. This can make all the difference between a good video ad and a great one.
