Did you know that when it comes to online product reviews, 66% of consumers prefer to watch a video as opposed to reading a text-based review?
Therefore it’s no surprise that explainer videos are a key tool to market a business. 87% of marketers agree that an explainer video has increased traffic to their website, whilst 90% have seen a direct increase in sales thanks to their explainer video. But what is an explainer video and why are they so successful?
An explainer video is a short corporate video – usually between one and three minutes long, (with over 68% of consumers preferring sub-one minute videos) – that details a company’s product or service. Many companies like to showcase this in the form of an animation, but they can also be pieces presented to camera by an in-house employee or narrated by a voiceover artist.
You’d usually find them either on the company’s homepage or product pages, depending on what the explainer is about.
When it comes to tone, Wyzowl reported that 75% of consumers decided not to buy a product because the video voiceover annoyed them. An informal and chatty tone is preferred by 83% of consumers. So, it seems that finding the right voice for your business or product is just as important as the product itself.
Therefore, also important to note that the voice you choose is representative of your brand. So you need a professional voiceover that reflects your company values, branding and message. It may be self-explanatory, but if your product explainer is aimed at young mums, then a female voiceover artist is more likely to resonate with your audience, than a male voiceover.
So, if you haven’t got an explainer video on your website already, then here are just a few reasons why you should get one…
