#1: Kick Off With a Bang!

Grab the audience’s attention from the very beginning! Give your audience a powerful reason to keep watching. It’s crucial to grip your viewers within the first 5 seconds of the video and peek their curiosity. Don’t waste time with lengthy intro animations or unengaging information, give a brief, intriguing introduction to what your video is about.

#2: Create Anticipation

Use phrases like “in a minute I am going to show you…” or, “by the end of this video, you’ll be…”

These phrases create a sense of anticipation and expectation that will keep your viewers hooked longer as they await what you’re about to deliver. Creating anticipation is a powerful tool in video marketing.

#3: Employ “Snippets”

Snippets are ideas that break up a pattern to help transition to new thoughts. They are an excellent way to prepare your viewer for the next subject, as well as helping to keep their attention. A snippet can be anything that breaks up the flow of your video, such as a  zoom in or out, animation or sound effects.

#4: A Call to Action

It’s your job to instruct your audience what to do next. Calls to action can include  “Subscribe Now,” “Give us a Thumbs Up,” or “ Head Over to my Blog”. Be sure to reinforce this with text, images, or annotations.

#5: Solidify A Structure

The key to creating an engaging video is in its structure. Take the time to plan your video before you even attempt to hit record. There needs to be a balance of enticing surprises and dependable elements that keep your viewer following along.

#6: Clear, Concise, and Creative

There shouldn’t  be any confusion about the purpose and content of your video. From the headline, to the content, your video needs to present a clear and concise message. Nothing more ineffective in a marketing video than a mess of information thrown at the viewer in a random order.

#7: Beneficial B-Roll

Try to use additional footage to demonstrate what you’re talking about. This will help to break up a potentially monotonous stretch of video and add a new element of interest for your viewer. But remember; the B-roll should provide insight or information, not just act as pointless filler.
