What makes an intro great?
A good presentation on YouTube can increase your authority on the web, increase subscribers to your YouTube channel and give a rough idea of what they will see in following the video.
However, while it is quite simple to transfer video recordings to YouTube, there are some factors you should consider before making an introduction.
The moment a subscriber to your channel watches one of your video recordings, the introduction is the first thing they see. This implies that the introduction has a huge impact on the entire video, so a poorly designed introduction can cause the viewer to give up and look for some other video to watch.
Here are some tips on the most effective way to make a decent presentation on YouTube:
Make it short: Long presentations can look good and fun, but you have to put yourself in the shoes of the video follower, meaning it’s important that you don’t get bored. In the event that an introduction is excessively long, the user may lose interest in the topic and close the video earlier than expected. Similarly, a user who is more determined to see a long intro until the end may be disappointed by closing the playback of the intro before playing the actual video.
Leave your Brand in the Intro: the most significant thing about an introduction on YouTube is to convey what you are watching, this is now well established. But also make sure your brand or brand is prominently included in your introductions.
Unleash your inventiveness – I’ll show you the quickest, most effortless ways to make a very effective YouTube intro. Since you are at the beginning in the creation of your intros, but consider delving into the aspects that I will show you with the aim of being able to make an absolutely unique introduction that will distinguish you from the others.
