Learn more about your target audience

Choose a good video agency

The next step is to look for a video agency. Of course, some of you might have a video team, but most businesses don’t have a team like this. When selecting an agency, you must consider a few things like what kind of production they provide. Can they take care of the entire process?

Come up with a good script

The first thing that you should remember is that you can use a limited number of words in your explainer videos. Typically, you can use around 150 words in one minute. Create a script that will cover the problem, the solution, the mechanics of your products and a memorable call to action. Most businesses are making short 1-minute videos, but feel free to create longer videos (up to 3 minutes) if you feel that the video can be engaging to the end.
