- Make notes on what you want to say. Which messages do you want to impart and which parts of your branding can you showcase in those words?
- For it to be truly engaging, your delivery should be fun and upbeat, as opposed to boring and droll. Try to use the same tone as you might use when speaking with a friend.
- One way to tell whether your script is suitable is to read it out loud before you use it in the video. You may even want to record it so that you can play it back to listen to how it sounds. Once you’re happy with this, then it’s time to move onto the visuals.
