Why should you make a video explainer?

An explainer video is your chance to give your viewer the lowdown on a big, complicated topic in a fun, easy-to-understand way.

Did you know that, when given the option, 60% of people would rather watch a video than read a block of text?

A stellar explainer video will help you:

  • Grab and hold the viewer’s attention. 55% of people would rather watch a video than read text.
  • Help people remember you (and what you do!) People are far more likely to remember a video than text.
  • Make life easier for your customer service reps. Great explainer videos can help you address major FAQs in a clear, concise way.
  • Improve your click-through and conversion rates. Whether you use them on your home page, landing page or product page, explainer videos will help visitors stick around for longer.
  • Increase your SEO. Facebook aren’t the only ones that favor video — Google’s algorithm favors sites that use video in its search rankings.

Explainer video tips

Ready to make an explainer video so good, people can’t help but watch? Here are some of our best tips to help you get there:

  • Stay on a single topic: Create an explainer video on a single topic at a time— don’t be tempted to throw the kitchen sink in there.
  • Explosive beginning: The first few seconds are crucial. Tease what the video is about and grab the viewer’s attention otherwise you’ll lose them.
  • Be true to your brand voice: Is your brand casual? Fancy? Irreverent? Find your voice and keep it consistent throughout the video— if you normally crack jokes and use GIFs like there’s no tomorrow your video needs to follow the same tone.
