writing a video script so I know sometimes it can be hard to get on the camera and know what exactly to say or how to say it so i have a script template that I’m going to break down into five different sections to really make sure your content is successful and that people watch it the whole way through now you may be thinking I really need a script template i know where i’m going to talk about that’s great awesome but i really suggest that you have a plan going into your video now whether that bullet points are full-on script you want to have your thoughts down on paper before you jump on video because you don’t want to look rambly you don’t want to keep talking and not really have a point to your content until like 10 minutes down the road we’ve already lost all your viewers so this template just really helps you stay focused get your content across and really keep your audience engaged so they’re not dropping off the first thing I want you to create at the beginning is your hook this will be how you’re going to get people to watch so for me the beginning of my video was me holding my glass align tell you what you’re going to learn in this video you want to find a way that’s really going to track people whether it’s asking a question are telling them what you’re going to talk about its really how you’re going to draw people in to watch your video after that you have a quick little buffer section where you put you know your logo to some music or some graphic with music or something like that so i really suggest having this buffer this graphic after your hook you really want people when they click on your video to see you first you want to connect with you instantly you don’t want to have like that graphic at the beginning because they’re like oh this isn’t who i thought it was there it possibly click off of it so allow them the opportunity to connect with you instantly and then put in your buffer or graphic whatever you’re going to do next is your intro so my intro is telling you who I am and what I do the train and the video content strategist going to keep this short like 10 to 15 seconds because it’s really going to be important to get right to the content people don’t want you rambling on about who you are what you do they want their question answered that they click on your video so just explain who you are what you do what you do like your elevator pitch in like 15 seconds and then you jump right on into the content the best way to really deliver your content is haven’t broken down into pieces like 3.43 tips today I’m giving you five sections to a video script so just really have your content organized and easy to follow throughout the video when you’re done with your content you want to call to action you’re not creating

  1. This is great! I definitely get off the track when I'm not prepared before a video. Writing a script beforehand has been super helpful.

  2. Scripts, always! It helps me keep my thoughts on track and and tricks me into believing that I have a clue about my topic 😀 [Also, shorter editing time…'nuff said.]

  3. I am not native English speaker and therefore its harder for me fo talk freely to the camera. I've found your tips very helpful. Thank you.

  4. hi trena, i have just found you on youtube and a quite interesting topic explained. i have a question : see i have gained a pretty profound knowledge on Amazon, i am planning to lead a dedicated youtube channel, about tricks, tips , strategies. The thing is I am not english native speaker, i am quite ok, but you clearly understand english is not my first language. What is your opinion about that? Do you think that a non-native speaker could create content in english as well? How this is perceived in your opinion?

  5. Accessibility issues such as closed captioning, looks like you are using you tubes built in, any low cost useable solutions out there? Also any good training vids on descriptive narration, is is best to include in the dialogue or have a separate voice over? Thanks

  6. Aloha !! I'm a new beginner on Web design and write my own Scripts ,Thanks for tips and strategies.

  7. Awesome video, just making a simple bullet list can work wonders, that alone was worth a watch and a like, a lot of people wing it and it can look amateurish and like you said all mumbly but a simple bullet list can end this. Great video!
