Here’s the thing: people don’t have particularly long attention spans when watching videos online. You want to make your explainer video precise, to the point, and most importantly, short.

You want your explainer to make like the world’s best secret agent – get in, do the job, and get out quickly. Stick to a single topic and don’t throw in everything you can think of plus the kitchen sink.

Start strong, explain fast

The first few seconds of your explainer video are crucial. You need to capture the viewer’s attention with a question that’s relevant to them, and then answer it fairly quickly.

To make these first few seconds count, know your audience. If you understand who your explainer video is directed at, you can tailor your tone to fit that demographic, further increasing the likelihood they’ll stick around and watch your explainer video to the end.
