  1. Start your business video script with a “Yes” qualifier question. For example, ask “Do you struggle with X?” Doing this will help you to easily identify who your prospects are – the ones that answer “Yes!”
  2. Tell your viewers what they will gain from watching your video. Let them know why they should continue watching your video until the last minute.
  3. Start to tease by hinting at a solution. This technique is also known as the Open Loop. For instance, you can write “I found this incredible way to fix X, but before I tell you that, I want to tell you about Y.” Works like a charm every time!
  4. Make your script relatable. Build trust and credibility faster by telling your audience that you’ve been through the same experience in the past and have found a solution.
  5. Promise your audience that your solution will be the answer to their problems. Promise that you will do your very best to help them.
