Everything most YouTubers say in their videos is scripted and they write their script beforehand to make sure they deliver the message correctly, in order, and in a way they can easily edit. Moreover, they write the script so they don’t have to memorize everything they need to say. So, in this article, I am going to tell you how to write the best script for a YouTube video so you can deliver your message as efficiently and effectively as possible.
How to Write the Best Script For a YouTube Video
After you have researched your video and you have the title that you are going to use, then break your video down into four parts:
- The hook
- Body of video
- Call to action
1. The Hook
The hook of the video is the part when the video starts where you say what your video is about in an attempt to grab the viewer’s attention. Your hook has to be as short and interesting as possible and remember you have 5 to 15 seconds to grab your viewers’ attention before they click off and watch someone else’s video so make sure that it’s interesting to catch your viewers’ attention.
In the hook, you are going to tell exactly what your video is about and try to make sound as interesting as you could so your viewers become interested in watching your whole video. In addition, the purpose of the hook is to let people know why they should watch your video instead of clicking on one of the many related video options that they have in the sidebar.
Your hook is so important to let your viewers know why they should watch your video, how is your video going to help them, what is it that your video is about that they should stick around for.
Since you got the viewers interested with the hook then the intro is where you quickly say who you are and give any additional information, related to your video or video purpose. Here you can mention any other support of details, branding statements, or any other need-to-know information about the video.
Sometimes intro is not required and you can get right into the body of your content but an intro is a great place for all of your branding elements and just a little bit of a lead into a kind of reinforce your hook to confirm and let people know that they are in the right place and they are going to get the information that they’re after.
3. Body of Video
The body of the video is where you share your list, where you share the bulk of your information. If you are making videos about your product or your business this is where all of that information. It’s the most important part of your video because it’s the part of the video that your viewers actually came to watch.
The body also helps your user engagement and here you don’t say to your viewers just to leave a comment, instead ask a question, because if you ask a question people are more likely to answer. By asking a question you are guiding your viewers into a comment. You simply ask a question from your viewers to answer in the comment section.
4. Call to Action
At the end of all of your videos, you are going to include the closing call to action. A call to action is simply telling your viewers what you want them to do next. If you are marketing something or if there is a particular action that you want your viewer to take after they watch your video this is where you put that information.
For example you tell your viewers to go to any affiliate link in the video description and give information what the link is about also you ask your viewers to subscribe to your channel and leave a comment.
The reason you should do this at the end of your videos is that people genuinely forget to subscribe and the YouTube autoplay feature takes them to someone else’s channel. So always remind your viewers to keep them engaged in your channel.
