Effective Explainer Video

A video can be called as effective when the viewer can understand the message conveyed completely. Creating an effective video is very important. It is the key point on a video marketing campaign success.

Keep it simple. An effective explainer video is around 45 seconds – 90 seconds. A long video that goes past audience’s attention span is not going to work well.

Another idea is to keep the important stuff first to make sure the audience won’t miss the important thing. Try to get important message explained in the first 30 seconds of the script.

An explainer video must contain “call to action” on the video. So, the audiences know what to do after watching the video. If the audiences have to visit a website address, make sure to write the web address clearly at the end of the video.
