Explain the smart way
It can be tempting to go into too much detail when you’re explaining a topic, and before you know it you’ve got a messy spider web of information floating around that you somehow need to tie together by the end of the video. 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, answer fast
Last but not least: 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. This will keep people from closing the video, and could potentially gain you a new follower.
To make these first few seconds count, know your audience. If you understand who your explainer video is directed at, you’ll be able to tailor your tone to fit that demographic, further increasing the likelihood they’ll stick around and watch your explainer video to the end.
An explainer video is a type of online marketing video used to explain a product or service, how to do something, a concept, or anything in between. Typically explainer videos last anywhere from thirty seconds to two minutes. They’re usually placed on high-traffic pages like a website landing page or as a featured video on YouTube to generate brand awareness and traffic.
Explainer videos boost your online presence and brand awareness, and studies have shown they can hold viewers’ attention for 70% of the total video length. Explainer videos embedded on social channels and websites will boost search rankings, as people are spending more time engaging with your content.
1. Pose the problem your product solves.
2. Introduce your product as the solution.
