- What do you want to tell in the video: brand, product or personality?
- In what form will you bring the information: through a production, interview, story, research or presentation?
- What conclusion do you want the user to draw after watching the video: this is a good brand, this is a good product, this is a good company, this is a profitable offer or if it is worth buying this item right now?
Keep in mind that the first 10 seconds are the most valuable, and during this time you must grab the viewer's attention.

More than 90% of users watch videos at least on daily basis. And taking into account their own experience and intuitive response, they pick only the best from the entire stream of content.

- Contains information about the brand
- Includes information on characteristics and significant parameters of the product
- Broadcasts the ideas clearly for the target audience
- Has Full HD quality
- Has no mistakes in text messages, descriptions, and calls to action
- Contains good quality audio: with clear and understandable speech, moderately colored emotional tone, without external sounds
Today, 9 out of 10 video views are made from mobiles, but 55% of purchases are made from desktop devices. The creation of cross-platform video formats will allow you to work with the audience equally effectively, regardless of the communication channels, which, in fact, doubles the business's chances of success.
The growth in demand for applications such as AdBlock is caused by the intrude and sometimes advertising irrelevance. Over 70% of users prefer personalized videos. Here are some things to consider in order to keep up with the trends:
- The readiness of the target audience for information (do they know the brand or the product?)
- Target audience interest in the offer (have they already bought or are they still at the decision-making stage?)
- The relevance of placing a video clip on a specific site (a media site or a narrow-profile forum?)
