The basics

Make intro videos that blow minds

Using Biteable’s online video maker, creating videos couldn’t be easier. The hardest part will be convincing viewers you didn’t pay an agency to make it. Here are all the must-know basics to guarantee intro video success.

Jump in with a template

Nailing the intro video is a fine art. Lucky for you, our team of marketing experts, designers, and copywriters have created templates guaranteed to wow your viewers. We’re intro video artistes, you could say.

Once you find a template you like, simply click “edit video” to get started. From there, editing your intro video couldn’t be easier. If you prefer, you can start from a blank slate and build your video from our vast library of individual animated scenes. You’ll also have a library of 1.8+ million stock footage clips and images to choose from.

Make it dazzle (your way)

Biteable’s online video-making software makes editing easy, no matter who you are. Change the text to suit your brand, add some custom clips, upload your own music, or choose from our library of tunes.

Maybe the color scheme doesn’t work? No problem. Jump in and change the colors to suit your brand. Slap your logo onto the intro scene and you’re good to go. Animate your logo if you’re feeling fancy — all it takes is selecting the animation style you like the best, and the Biteable editor does the rest for you.

Done? Download your video and show it off to the world.

Ace your intro

Ace your intro by digging into the minds of your target audience. There, you shall find all the answers you seek.

The tone of your intro sets the tone for the rest of your video, so it’s in your best interest to get it right. First, take a look at your content, your business, and your product. Now think about the audience you’re marketing it to.

Would your audience want an intro involving animated characters, or would they want something a bit more straightforward? A bit of cyber-digging into the tastes of your demographic goes a long way toward setting a tone viewers can identify with.

Once you’re at one with your audience, your intro video will basically make itself.

Biteable generously offers many (hundreds?) of templates and regularly share tips and tricks on their blog.

Pro tips

Make a YouTube intro that dazzles

Do your YouTube videos need intros? Probably not. Will a YouTube intro boost the professionalism of your videos and help them stand out on the crowded platform? Absolutely. Give your videos the best chance to get noticed with compelling YouTube intros, made with Biteable.

Keep branding in mind

If your intro is fun and recognizable, people are more likely to engage with and share your content. Be open to experimentation — study the performance of your videos, the comments, and key metrics like where people stop watching. 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 recognizing your content just by the colors and intro, making them even more likely to stick around.

Bite-sized is best

Remember, we’re talking about YouTube intros. Now is not the time to tell your entire life story or ramble on and on about how great your video is going to be. (Save this for your YouTube channel trailer).

Keep intros short and sweet. We recommend 15 seconds or less — just enough time to introduce your company or video topic and get viewers excited about it. If things get too long, trim your videos with ease.

Include your sparkly new intro at the start of every Youtube video, and leave your channel trailer to greet viewers who click on your channel to find out more.

Get crafty with custom Youtube intros

The best thing about Biteable? It takes seconds to customize your videos. If you want a different intro for each YouTube segment you offer, knock them all off your to-do list in a matter of minutes.

Duplicate your existing intro and tweak it with the relevant changes. Edit the text, animations, or clips to suit the intro you’re adding to your repertoire. You’ll get the benefits of keeping your style consistent across your videos, while also making the extra pro move of customizing intros for every type of video you make.
