Have you ever made an animation video before? Okay, if you haven't been and you want to try it, let's read this article to the end.

Of course, making animated videos is not an easy thing for beginners. But you can still learn all that as long as you study it diligently and with discipline.

How To Make An Animation Video?

In contrast to making ordinary videos, making animated videos means that we have to create the video object itself. Yes, making animated videos is a bit more complicated. But don't worry, here are the steps to make a cool animated video.

  1. Choose an animation style
  2. Write a script
  3. Create a storyboard
  4. Start visualizing
  5. Edit and animate your video
  6. Render and finishing
  7. Upload and share it on your channels

Send viewers to your landing page 

If you post your description video on YouTube, you can add specific links to your video, but they can link to other YouTube videos (not bad if you have an established YouTube channel).

To direct people to your website, you can add a description to your video that shows your website address, but viewers won't be able to click on it. . They will need to enter the URL into their browser.

If you want to make it easier for your audience, add a live link in the comment section of the YouTube video. Keep the first link in the description so it doesn't get destroyed in the "See more" box.

What makes a great landing page for an explainer video viewer? Create a page that makes visitors feel like they are in the right place and tells them why they should contact you or give you their email address. 

Promote Your Video

Naturally, you'll want to promote your new explainer video to your own social media list (eg, email, Facebook fans, Twitter followers, etc.). The fastest way to make sure you get YouTube views is to promote your videos with YouTube ad campaigns. 

These can range from $0.08 to $0.20 per check. A good practice is to create two target groups: one for topic (your video shows as related to the video people are currently watching) and one for interest (your video shows as related to the video topic someone is watching ).

You can also try Facebook ads to promote your explainer videos. When you share your video in a Facebook post update, you can promote the post to reach your target audience.

Design, create and share. That's all we can talk about. Go ahead, make your video and when you post it let me know so I can watch it!
