Pro tips

Rake in the views

Congrats. Your intro or outro video is a gem. A surefire hit. But with just a little bit more consideration, you could turn a great video into an incredible one. We’ve got a few more tips up our sleeve. Like a perfect dessert, we save the best for last.

Set your tone

The tone of your intro (and outro) will set the tone for the rest of your video, so it’s in your best interest to get it right. Take a look at your content, your business, your product, now think about the audience you’re marketing it to. Would they want an intro involving animated characters, or would they want something a bit more straightforward? Doing a bit of cyber-digging into the tastes of your demographic will go a long way toward setting a tone viewers can identify with.

Find a style that works

If your intro is fun and recognisable, people will be more likely to engage with and share your content. Be open to experimentation — study the performance of your videos, the comments and metrics like where people stop watching, and adjust accordingly.

Once you build a style that works, stick with it. If you follow the above steps and make your intro synonymous with your brand identity, viewers will start recognising your content just by the colours and intro, making them even more likely to stick around.

Bite-sized is best

Sometimes, the simplest advice is the best. Make your video short & sweet. A good intro is usually fairly quick, no more than 20 seconds (preferably between 3-10), and will have a very small amount of text or voiceover. Save the fleshy details for the bulk of your video. The intro needs to do one thing and one thing only — capture your viewer’s attention. Trim your videos with ease.

Keep the outro for the important facts — your name, how people can contact you, and a logo so viewers can identify you at a glance.
