Over the past few years, the video has increased its popularity across the globe. You can see it everywhere – social media, television, websites, text messages, billboards, etc. Today, creating videos on your own has never been easier. Now everyone has instant access to filming, editing and publishing videos via their smartphones and cameras. But why so? Because video is an easy-to-digest format that helps your eyes to rest from the overabundance of textual information online and it is a powerful entertaining-selling instrument.
Just a few numbers:
Let’s be honest and say that all of us use videos for one purpose and this purpose is selling. For some random Instagram blogger – views and likes – are his goal and his currency. For companies and business video is a powerful selling instrument.
But how can one make a video that will make it go viral and helps to increase not only ROI but the company’s income in general?
Today there are thousands of possibilities to make a video of any kind: long and short, entertaining and informative, interview and story, low budget and overrated expensive. But what is the secret of making a video that will grab viewers attention and will call him to action? You can have an excellent product or service, but if your video “don’t catch” it is all worth nothing. The answer is – an effective content marketing strategy where the company has a solid understanding of the main purpose. Why do I need this video? What do I want to achieve with it? Whenever you have an answer – you can decide on what kind of video is the most suitable for your purpose. One of the most popular and universal types of video is Explainer video.
Explainer videos can help educate people about your product and can be used in conjunction with instructions, customer service activities, and a whole other range of applications. If you want to inform, educate, entertain your audience – this type of video is for you.
Another important mission for Explainers – is selling. Focus on information and data and include relevant information within your explainer video. This way you are not focusing the client’s attention on the sales process but on the informational process. There are lots of commercial everywhere so it can be a very refreshing change when you offer non-sales type language within your animated explainer videos. This will increase the level of interest customers have about your product while concentrating less on the sales funnel or sales process.
Video should present quick and rich content because it is more fulfilling than viewing simple images or tedious words. It is not a secret that reading takes more time than watching. Even podcasts take longer because they lack visual aids. Visual content allows delivering information several times as fast. For example, if you need to show any graph, you can present it with a speaker simultaneously illustrating the information on the picture in clear and entertaining manner, instead of a graph followed by a paragraph explaining it.
Stop Selling. Nobody likes direct sales. The main goal is to give information. Many customers have a bad response to sales videos that are trying to push them products they don’t need. Instead of producing yet another product video, try to create the need, and show how to solve it by purchasing your product.
For instance, you are selling a resistance band for exercise. Don’t sell the band at first, produce a video with 10 boost workouts using resistance bands and then sell. Once a client watches your video, he watches it for a reason and if you teach and tell him everything you know he will recognize you as the most trustworthy source of information.
Showing, not telling. With the right combination of visuals and sound, there is nothing video can do. Any viewer will watch your video, as long as you follow up it with valuable and concise content. Nowadays, businesses use this method to their advantage by marketing with videos instead of with text and images. Make sure your video has a hook, it has a simple and understandable idea, it brings solution and has a gripping final call-to-action and you are bound to have success with keeping audiences interested.

The more emotion and impulse you bring into video – the more feedback you get. First thing first. Make sure your script is clear, valuable and can solve the user’s problem. Focus on one case – Show what you want to show, what you want to outline and emphasize. Once the script is perfect, comes a visual part that should be an essential addition to your story. Visual effects, their general view, color, and style – it all has meaning and function. Your main goal is to transfer your client to the imaginary world of the video and to cause emotions. Animated video – is a virtual commodity that can revive any character, describe any story, call any demand and bring a successful and easy solution.
