wasting less time. In a presentation, it often takes time to switch from one

When you’re placing a video in your presentation, it helps to be mindful of
backgrounds. You want to avoid adding a
video to a background that’s super busy and might be distracting. Try adding
video to spots in your presentation that might be packed with info. This will
give your audience a break to digest the info you’ve already given them. Consider
playing a video at the beginning of your presentation to build anticipation, or
at the end of your presentation to strike a specific emotion with your audience
before they leave.
THE BENEFITS OF EXPLAINER VIDEOS
Explainer videos are good for breaking down complex ideas by
providing concrete images to abstract ideas. They will capture your audience’s
attention and evoke a specific emotional reaction from them. A good explainer
video is about 90 seconds long. Consider
your target audience when you select graphics for your explainer video, make
sure they are culturally and age appropriate. Voice over as well as the
animation style of your video should match the tone of your brand and website.

processes to your employees.
