Top of the Sales Funnel

Best Practices for Product Demonstration Videos
Demo videos are effective at providing solutions for audience pain points and specific needs or problems. Online users frequently take to the internet to look for detailed information regarding your types of products. Best practices of producing live-action or animated product demo videos include:
Keep Demo Video Under 2 Minutes in Length
Viewer attention spans have never been shorter. Keep your demo videos to two minutes maximum. That is more than enough time to deliver your message and provide all the information you need to.
Keep is Simply Simple (KISS)
Stick to the most basic information viewers will need to get an overview of the benefits of your products. Leave them wanting more and provide calls to action and other techniques to help them find it. Make graphics and transitions smooth and traditional so they will not distract from the message and product details.
Pre-Production Planning, Research
The more you research consumer trends and needs and set aside time to prepare and plan your storyboard, voiceover, and other technical production elements. You can start with a list of questions customers in your industry most-often ask, then set out to answer them and provide solutions. Write and stick to your video script, ideally presented by a professional voiceover artist for your narrator.
If you can get your viewers’ attention from the start, they are far more likely to watch the rest of the video.
Practice, Practice, Practice
There is no substitute for practice. For recorded videos, do multiple takes to make sure you capture the best footage to use. The more you practice, the better and more natural your video content will look.
