Explainer videos come in handy, especially for startup companies who often come up with niche products with unique features. And If you’re working on a startup, you should give explainer videos a shot. Even if you think your product isn’t cool enough – you may be surprised by how many people will be interested in it.
Sometimes, all you need is a simple explanation why your product is cool.
An explainer video doesn’t have to be all fancy graphics with HDR resolution – although those aspects generally improve the quality. Putting together an explainer video could be as simple as creating a slide show – you just need to say the right word and build enough momentum to land your Call to Action (CTA). In other words, you need to write a compelling explainer video script.
In order to do that, there are several things you need to know about explainer video scripts – courtesy of Breadnbeyond, an explainer video company. Let’s go over a few:
The general structure of an explainer video script
In order to build up a momentum to introduce your product, you need to put a certain problems (which your product solves) into viewers’ attention. Make them aware of the problems first – then you throw in why the existing solution (if any) is bad. You could also throw in several words to throw shade at your competitors in this – if you’re building a sassy brand persona.
Anyway, these are the questions that will help you build a strong explainer video script:
- What’s the problem?
- Is there any current solution to the problems?
- If yes, why are they not good enough?
- What’s your solution to those problems?
- Why should people use your solution?
- Where can people come find you if they’re interested?
