Video Marketing: Tips for an Engaging Script

Brand videos are essential parts of your overall digital marketing campaign. They not only give your brand a face and personality but also helps you engage with customers and prospects.

However, creating brand videos entails more than just making a good-looking video. Your script is a crucial part of the whole process, as it will determine how engaging and entertaining your video is.

The Importance of Writing a Video Script

A video script is the foundation of your brand video and provides direction on how you tell your brand story. It defines the flow of ideas, emotions, and actions within the video.

A well-written script also leaves room for creativity in terms of production techniques and visual elements. Once you have a script, it will be easier for the production team to create a visually appealing and effective brand video.

Aside from that, a script will:

  • Help you get organized and focus on your ideas
  • Allow you to explain complex concepts in a more direct manner
  • Give you the opportunity to review and refine your content
  • Save editing time later on

Anatomy of a Brand Video Script

When writing a script for your brand video, there are several key elements to consider.

The introduction (Attention): This is the first thing viewers will see and read. It should be short but informative, so viewers get an idea of what the video is about.

The main body (Engagement): This is the part where you let viewers know more about your brand and why they should care:

  • Agitation: Describes the problem or customer pain point
  • Activity: Describes the steps to be taken to resolve the problem

The conclusion (Action): This part of the script should be short and to the point. It should provide viewers with a call-to-action (CTA) that is clear and concise.

Tips for Writing an Engaging Script

Creating a great script takes time and effort, but there are some tips that you can follow to make the process easier.

1. Establish your key message

Think about what your main objective is and how to communicate that effectively in the video. What are you aiming for with your brand video? Is it to build brand awareness, generate leads, or increase conversions?

Keep your message focused and make sure it is easy to understand.

2. Keep it simple

A good script should be straightforward and easy to follow. Avoid complicated words and jargon, and focus on using simple language that viewers can easily comprehend.

Take into consideration your brand voice and image as well. Ensure that the language you use is consistent with your brand image.

3. Add storytelling elements

Storytelling can help you capture viewers’ interest and engage them with your video. If it makes sense to do so, Add a human element to the script by introducing characters, stories, and vivid descriptions. This can bring the video to life and make it more interesting.

However, you can get creative with how you add storytelling elements, as not all brand videos require them. An example would be to use customer testimonials as a way of storytelling.

4. Put yourself in the viewer’s shoes

Empathy is key when it comes to writing an engaging script. Put yourself in the shoes of your viewers and try to understand how they will perceive your content.

What pain points are they facing? What value can you provide that is relevant to them? Try to focus on creating a script that resonates with viewers’ needs and expectations.

5. Draft, review, and revise

Be sure to take some time to review your script and make revisions as necessary. It can be helpful to get feedback from your team or a third-party expert to ensure that the script is on the right track.

Once you’re satisfied with the script, ensure that this is communicated well to the production team. This will make the video process smoother and help your brand video become more successful.
