Ultimate Template to Making A 2 Minute Video
Hi there you video making friends
Today I’m going to chat about a result driven Video Structure Template that you can use to create any 2 minute video or video blog.
It’s a guide you can always use to Storyboard your video to
Keep the flow
Keep Your audience entertained
right to the end
Get your point across.
And have watchers take part in your Call to action.
Have you ever started to film yourself and well…got a little lost.
Ya know, Felt that you were rambling and even forgot what you were talking about.
That’s never happened to me (Oh yes! It has! Many times)
Planning the structure before you sit down to script can help in so many ways.
Your look remains consistent,
It keeps you to the point
You get all that you wanted to say “out there” so that you position yourself as the expert that you are.
And as a bonus later you can even use your template if you are outsourcing your editing to a professional.
Lets go over the elements to your Video Template. I’ll give you an estimated time for each if we were creating a two minute video.
If you wanted to create a longer video…just change the times that you take to outline your challenge and provide solutions.
To bulk out your solutions for longer videos you can tell personal stories that you know the watcher will relate to.
****As a side note****.
I encourage Videos no longer than 2 minutes for most Social Media platforms.
Unless you’re platform is YouTube and that will be a whole other series
(And Tic Tok also is a different video time…also another series)
Here are your elements
The Animated Intro (Max 7 seconds)
It’s your overall introduction sitting in front of every one of your videos to identify your brand
The Title (approx 2-5 sec)
It’s the name that describes what is in your video. It can be narrated as well as having text over a slide.
The Introduction to your Topic (Max 30 sec)
This is where you will reveal to your audience what your video title is all about.
The Pain Point (30 sec)
Outline a Challenge or Struggle that you know your audience has about the subject.
It helps to grab your audience because now they can relate and are hungry for a solution
The Hook (10 Seconds)
Put somewhere in the middle of your video to encourage your viewers to continue watching, the hook is sometimes formulated as a promise that juicy things will be offered if they can just stay tuned until the end.
And here’s my hook for you in this video blog. Read tile the end I’ll give you the link to download this Template Video Structure pdf to use for all of your 2 minute videos.
The Solutions (60 sec)
The bulk of your video will now be on the Solution or information you have to solve the problem that you spoke of earlier.
This can be done with a story or examples.
In a 2 minute video I would keep this to about 60 seconds.
Your Conclusion and sign off (10 seconds)
This can be one phrase that signifies that your video is complete giving you a chance to identify yourself or your brand once more before the call to action.
Call to Action (5-10 sec)
A quick 5 to 10 second, powerful and to-the-point narration or slide with music that tells your audience what to do next.
Because the success of your video will depend on the action that they take.
And that’s all for Creating the Structure for your Video
