Pro tips

Give your animated explainer videos the magic touch

So you know by now what an explainer video does, why you need one, and how to make it. Sure, Biteable makes it easy to get your explainer out the door in minutes - but with a little bit more time and polish, you could turn an A into an A+.

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 points 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 at a time, and don’t be tempted to throw in 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 what the video is explaining, and answer it not long after. This will keep them 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 their demographic, further increasing the likelihood that they’ll stick around and watch your explainer video to the end.
