The 5 Step Formula to Writing Video Ads That Sell

The most efficient way to make any video is to start by writing it down on paper. In regards to marketing videos, follow this 5-step formula to script your next video… 

First and foremost is the Hook. This is the first 3-5 seconds of your video. In the hook you want to grab someone’s attention and create a feeling of curiosity for them to want to stick around and watch the rest.

Secondly you want to dive into the Problems: People buy products and services because they have problems that need to be solved. So make the problems relatable and then offer the solution.

What is your product? How does it work? How does it solve the viewers problem and how is it going to make their lives better? These are all things you want to address in the Solutions

After that you want to go into Doubts and Objections: No matter how great you say your product or service is, people are still going to have their doubts. So the way to combat that is to address the doubts with credibility, testimonials, reviews, endorsements and anything that is factual because nothing sells better than the truth.

Lastly, you need a Call-to-Action, ask for the buy. People want to buy if your ad is compelling so ask for the sale clearly and directly

Speak only to what is important to that viewer, their problems and pains, and how you (your product or service) eliminate those problems and improve their life sprinkled with social proof and several calls-to-action throughout.

This structure (Hook, Problem, Solution, Doubts and Objections, CTA) is proven to generate ROI if executed effectively.
