Q: What is Whiteboard Animation?

Q: How can a whiteboard video can benefit me (or my business)?
A: When you use a whiteboard video, you are able to summarize and highlight your product or your company in one or two entertaining minutes. Your potential clients view the video and quickly learn about you rather than having to read through lots of content on multiple webpages. It’s the best way to present you and your business to prospective clients.

Q: How long should my video be?
A: Your final video will depend on the length of your script. A minimum of 30 seconds with no upper limit to length.
Be aware that a short, succinct and focused video will be more likely to be watched through to the end. The research has found that the optimal video length is between 60 and 120 seconds long.
Whiteboard videos retain attention the best compared to other videos styles so they can be slightly longer but you still want to keep it short.
If you have a lot to say it is usually a better plan to produce multiple videos that deliver bite-sized information to your customer.

Q: I already do live video, why should I use whiteboard?
A: I’m sure you’ve heard that variety is the spice of life.
The same applies to video.
Your followers want variety.

Q: Why shouldn't I go to Fiverr and get the same thing?
Let me ask you a question – Is what you will get really the same thing?

It’s your call.
