Video has become the go-to for engaging and educating audiences. In the Agri-Foods industry, educational videos can be a powerful tool to showcase your brand and product to potential customers and employees.

But, not all videos are created equal. Creating compelling, educational videos requires strategic planning and expertise. In this blog post, we will highlight best practices for creating educational Agri-Foods videos that engage your audience and deliver results.

Define Your Goals

Before filming your video, it’s important to define your goals and objectives.

Are you trying to showcase a new product?
Educate employees or customers about a specific topic?
Or create a video campaign for social media?
Defining your goals upfront will help guide your video content, messaging and audience targeting.

Remember to think about your video from the audience’s perspective to ensure your content meets their needs.

Create a Storyboard

Once you’ve defined your goals, take time to create a storyboard for your video.

A storyboard is a visual representation of your video content and helps map out what each scene will entail.

Storyboards help visualise what shots will be taken and the progress and flow of the content.

It is also an opportunity to evaluate whether the video is achieving the outcomes you want.

Keep it Short and Entertaining

When it comes to educational videos, it’s important to keep it short and sweet. Attention spans are short, so it’s essential to keep your audience engaged from start to finish.

Try to keep your videos under three minutes and make it enjoyable. Use humour or captivating visuals to keep the audience glued to your video.

Use High-Quality Images and Audio

Low-quality video production can harm the credibility of your brand and video content.

To ensure the best results, use high-quality images and audio in your videos. At Super Motion, we recommend hiring a professional videographer or using high-quality cameras and equipment to capture your content.

It is also essential to remove any background noise or echo for high-quality audio.

Add a Call-to-Action

Lastly, having a clear call-to-action will help ensure that the viewer takes action after watching your video.

Whether it’s directing them to your website to learn more, or encouraging them to share the video online, a clear call-to-action can help maximise the reach and engagement of your video.

Wrap it up well and make sure the audience leaves with an awareness of the call-to-action and what steps you need them to take next.
