What is an Explainer Video?

An Explainer Video is a 15 second to one minute video that engages visitors in an entertaining way, while revealing who you are and the services you offer. It is recommended that the video tells a story relating to your services to draw the viewer in.

Because video incorporates visuals, sound, and possibly text, it engages the primary senses for intaking information. A good video will entertain the visitor, allowing them to relax while you convey the subject matter in a “who, what, and why” format.

Today’s world is filled with advertisements that bombard the eyes and ears. If someone has come to your website, they already have an interest in your services. An Explainer Video will present them with a taste of who you are without sounding like another sales pitch. It also allows the viewer to watch it from the perspective of self-education, based on their own curiosity. In essence, it can help them sell your services to themselves.
