Don’t Overwhelm Your Audience with Text
Text helps your audience follow the message even when the sound is off, convey the information better than an image and will also enhance the viewers’ understanding of the video. But, putting excessive text in your video just because you have a ton of information to tell your viewers can be overwhelming for them and they might end up watching the video halfway. Fill your videos with critical texts that are essential and make sure it doesn’t move quickly as that might give the readers a difficult time reading it and if your audience is spending a moment thinking with the fact that they are reading something, they will move forward to a more interesting video.
Choose the right music

Include a Call to Action

This is where you will close the deal and prompt your user to do something. If they have watched your video completely, they’ve shown a clear interest, so what is left is for you to prompt the call to action. The primary goal of your promotional video is to get viewers to a website or product page. So, if viewers are watching your video on YouTube, all you need to do is to include a customized link to a landing page on your website that will be dedicated to getting that viewer the additional information they are looking for and subsequently into your sales process. Your call to action doesn’t have to be so vague and generic like putting in ‘call us or email for more information’. You can add creativity by using some creative ideas like “Free trial, watch another video, bring out the vote, or Enter to win” all these are creative and practical calls to action that will work for many of the audience
