Pro tips

Better videos for better birthdays

You’ve got yourself a great happy birthday video ready to go. With a few more pointers, you can take it to the next level and give someone a birthday greeting they’ll never forget.

Make your message meaningful

Heartwarming visuals are one thing, but the content of your birthday video is another. Before you type in “happy birthday [insert name here]” and call it a day, think if there’s something more meaningful to say. If the person is an employee, write down how much you appreciate their hard work. Or if they’re a longtime fan of your brand, tell them what their continued dedication and support means to you.

Stick with a consistent style

You want your recipient to pay attention to the lovely birthday greeting you’ve sent them, not a jarring clash of different animation styles and stock footage. For birthday videos, the background scenes should support the text — not the other way around. Choose complimentary scenes to ensure the focus stays on your wonderful message.

Don’t go over the top

Biteable makes creating birthday videos so easy that it can be tempting to follow a “kitchen sink” approach — that is, cramming it full of anything and everything without caring too much about edits. While you aren’t limited to a super-short video, take care it doesn’t end up overly long either. Share a birthday message, not a birthday presentation. Short and sweet does the trick for a happy birthday video.
