A video intro can mean either a short title screen or screens at the start of a video, or a video that explains what something is about. In this article I will be talking about title screens, you can read our article on the topic of Explainer Videos.
If you’re making videos as a business, you’ll be aware that just blazing in to your video content straight away is akin to just opening the door and walking into someone’s house without knocking. A far more stylish and professional way of going about it is to make an intro (and outro) in much the same way as television shows have opening and closing title sequences.

Things to remember when making a video intro:
- Make a good first impression. Your intro will be the first thing your audience will see, so it’s worth spending the time to make it really good. If it’s fun and recognisable, people will be more likely to engage with the content and share your video.
- Make it short & sweet. A good intro is usually fairly quick, no more than 20 seconds (preferably between 5-10), and has a minimal amount of text or voiceover, so put minor but potentially long-winded details in an outro (or better yet, don’t put them in at all).
- Make it tell the story. Your intro needs to convey who you are and what you’re about, and what the video is about.
- Brand it. There’s a reason big companies have logos and colors. It helps people to recognize and remember your product and the more familiar people are, the more likely they are to come back.
