Creating Videos That Captivate and Convert

by | theBlog

“Good videos that connect with your audience will generate good leads.”

Several of our clients have been hesitant to post videos on their social media. Most of the time, it’s because they got burned with past campaigns that didn’t create the results they were looking for, in the time they expected.

We all know that videos are more engaging than any other kind of post, but did you know that videos can create quick turnaround in terms of engagement. Based on videos we created for one of our clients, they started receiving engagement and leads within three days. Not every campaign will be like that, but the potential is there.

The results are a direct result of the quality of the video. Good videos that connect with your audience will generate good leads. 

Here are the essential elements you need to make a good video.

1. Identify the Type of Video

The first step in creating your video content is to decide on the type of video you want to create. This could range from explainer videos that break down complex topics into digestible pieces, to proposal videos aimed at securing partnerships or investments. Marketing and advertising videos are designed to boost sales and brand visibility, while brand awareness videos focus on telling your brand’s story and values.

2. Hooks

The first few seconds of your video are crucial. A compelling hook grabs your audience’s attention and encourages them to watch the entire video. To make your video content more engaging right from the start, use hooks that ask interesting questions or provide unusual facts. For example:

  • “Did you know that 90% of information transmitted to the brain is visual? “
  • “Ever wondered why some brands stay in your mind long after you’ve seen their ad? Here’s why they work.”
  • “Imagine going into work the day before you go on vacation without any stress.”

Each of these hooks presents an interesting idea, question, or piece of data that will engage an audience and get them to continue watching.

3. Calls to Action

A call to action (CTA) is a key element in guiding your audience on what to do next. Whether it’s visiting your website, subscribing to a newsletter, commenting on your post, or contacting your team, a clear and persuasive CTA is essential. The best part is that a good CTA is not complicated. All it has to do is tell the audience what to do next. Whether it’s “visit our website” or “order online at,” as long as your audience knows how to get the solution you’ve presented, you’ve got a CTA.

4. Visuals

The visual component of your video is what makes it truly engaging. High-quality, relevant visuals that align with your message and brand identity are crucial. Your visuals should be relevant to the topic. And it’s even better if you can use your visuals to tell the story rather than using words in your script.

5. Scripts

With that said, a well-written script is the backbone of your video. It guides the narrative, ensuring that your message is clear, engaging, and aligned with your objectives. But a good script also balances information against the visual. Sometimes the visual can tell all the story. Most of the time you will need the script to help fill in the details. Polish your script to be clear and concise, so any spoken words are precisely what is needed.

6. Footage

Quality footage, whether shot on location or curated from stock resources, adds authenticity and depth to your video. Selecting footage that reflects the real-world application of your message, makes your content relatable and credible. Footage that does not align with the message of the video will distract your viewers and make your video harder to watch.

7. Music

The right background music can enhance the emotional tone of your video, subtly influencing how your message is received. Select music that complements the video’s pacing and tone, ensuring it supports rather than distracts from the video content.

Additionally, ensure that the audio you choose is in the public domain so your video doesn’t get removed or penalized by the platforms you post your video on. A great option is to look at music that is trending on the platform. Most of that music is usable and will help the algorithm share your video more.

8. Voice-Overs

Voice -overs, and (better yet) a face to the brand will sky rocket how much it gets shown and the overall engagement, as more people will see the content. Also adding on-screen subtitles will multiply the watch time (time people spend watching your vide), engagement and interest in what you have to say and want the viewer to do after.

A professional voice-over can greatly improve the quality of your video, making your content more accessible and engaging. The choice of voice – its tone, pace, and emotion – should match your brand’s personality and the video’s intended impact. Work with talented voice-over artists to bring scripts to life, adding a personal touch that connects with viewers.

Or if you’re comfortable, speak on camera so the audience can see your face and hear your voice. This will make you the face of your brand and help boost your engagement.

In Conclusion

In summary, creating a good video requires a thoughtful combination of these key elements, tailored to your specific goals and audience. Using these elements you can create videos that connect with your audience.
