Creating engaging news videos for social media
YouTube is the most used video platform globally, with close to 1.5 billion users viewing around 1 billion hours of video every day. However, 81% of businesses prefer to use Facebook for video marketing.
Twitter and Instagram also make up a large portion of video viewers. Catering to all these platforms is simple through a news headlines video template. Here are some basics to keep in mind:
1. Clear text – News videos must contain text with 100% clarity so that viewers immediately understand the topic and development. Clear grammar and punctuation are a must. Make sure the colors you choose are also clearly visible against the background.
2. Focus on what’s important – A news headlines video should get to the point almost immediately. A simple headline, followed by a small paragraph, both accompanied by imagery, is ideal for delivering the news.
3. Call-to-action – Once the news has been delivered, do not forget to add an enticing call-to-action at the end. As stated earlier, viewers are 95% more likely to remember a call-to-action through video rather than text.
4. Keep it short – Keep your videos under 2 minutes and make sure to catch the audience’s attention in the first 10 seconds. Around 60% of viewers leave the video after 2 minutes while some skip straight past it if they aren’t entertained in the opening 10 seconds.
