Elements Of A Great Product Launch Video Script

There are numerous approaches to writing an excellent B2B product marketing video script. While some people prefer to write marketing video scripts in the style of a movie script, with visual details written alongside the dialogue, others prefer to organize the script visually by using a table or including a storyboard.

Whatever script format you choose, there are a few elements that all great marketing video scripts have in common:

1. Clear Audio And Visual Details

Do you want upbeat music? Voice over? Smooth transitions? Or quick cuts from one frame to another?

When it comes to videos, the script is more than just what is said on camera or during the narration. In order to demonstrate how the visual and audio elements work together to tell a complete story, you must include both in your script.

Like given above, you can make separate tables for all your audio and visual elements that you want in your product launch video.

2. Crisp And Concise Dialogue

People’s attention spans are short. That is why it is important to limit your B2B product video script to only the most necessary dialogue or details. This does not imply that the video must be devoid of personality. However, when you get to the editing phase, make sure you trim out all the fluff.

Making an outline before you begin writing is one of the best ways to ensure that your script contains only the necessary details. An outline will assist you in staying on topic while discussing the most important aspects of the subject.

You can take a look at scripts from well performing product videos to get an idea. Your product launch video can do well even when there’s no voice over.

3. The Hook

You have 15 seconds. The first 15 seconds of any video decide the success. It’s here when the viewer makes the choice if they want to continue watching or scroll past.

If you don’t want your B2B product video to end up at the bottom of the feed with 3 likes and 7 views, you need to make sure that the audience stays till the end.

This video by Adobe is an incredible example of hooking in your viewer and making them stay. It beautifully sets up an environment of anticipation and gives you the feeling of sitting on the edge.

4. Clear Call To Action (CTA)

A call to action is a must for any marketing video. You must make it clear what you want the viewer to do or where they should go next. The CTA should motivate them to act on the information they just saw. This could be a request to make a purchase, download a resource, begin a free trial, or simply subscribe to your YouTube channel.

Use clear and concise language so that there is no doubt or confusion about what they should do next.

Making a video for B2B & SaaS products needs a different mindset.

Like this product marketing video asks its viewer to book a call immediately after they’ve outlined the product benefits.

Whatever you’re launching, a video is an excellent way to spread the word and generate excitement for your new product. You might even strike it rich and go viral.

The key is to keep it brief (under two minutes) and focused on the user’s benefit. Even if your product is cool and cutting-edge, the cold hard truth is that people only care about how products will benefit them.

Yes, you can (and should) discuss your distinguishing features. But keep your focus on explaining the tangible benefits and how they will help improve the user’s life or solve a problem they’re facing.

Putting together a product launch video on top of handling your B2B video marketing and business needs can be overwhelming. Take some weight off your shoulders and get in touch with Content Beta.
