"Anyone can create a video and post it online, but creating an effective video that drives action is more science than art.
Here are 10 secrets to producing a video that sells.
1. Start with your potential customer’s pain point:
Think about what your product or service can do to help your customers solve their problems, no matter how small or large they may be.
2. Present your solution:
After you have engaged viewers with your story, present the solution to them in a simple way that helps them fully understand the results your product or service has to offer.
3. Demonstrate your solution:
Give your customers a visual tour of how your product or service will solve their problems using screenshots and product photos.
4. Present a call to action:

5. Keep it short and sweet.
6. Introduce your company in the first 30-seconds.
7. Use clear, crisp visuals:
Try incorporating stock images and/or video from websites like istockphoto.com or stock animation sequences from sites like videohive.net when needed.

9. Create a soundtrack:
Find plenty of royalty-free options online using sources like audiojungle.net, premiumbeat.com, and ibaudio.com.
10. Don’t be afraid to be funny:
Adding humor to your video will help them see the human side of your business..."
