Many such videos also include the benefits of the product being demoed, or they compare features to competitors. The primary purpose of demo videos is to educate your target audience, although your video should also be both entertaining and promotional.
You want your demo video to be compelling, meaning it needs to be short and focus on the product. Remember that the average person viewing the video has an attention span of 8.25 seconds, which is less than the attention span of a goldfish, so whatever message you want to convey in your demo video, it needs to be short and to the point.
We also live in an age and time when people want and expect to be entertained. This gives you a lot of latitude for creativity, but it also means you need to get across a lot of information quickly and easily to keep your viewers engaged and entertained. This is where animated video can become a great asset. People are accustomed to cartoons from childhood, and they hold a sentimental place in our hearts. Using animated videos for product videos allows you to convey a lot of information quickly, simply, and engagingly. It’s a winning combination for increasing your engagement, conversions, and, consequently, revenue.
