Why whiteboard videos?
1. Storytelling Won’t Let You Down
For the longest time, storytelling was the main way of communication, and it’s still highly effective nowadays. Let’s be honest, nobody can resist a well-told story. To be successful in your storytelling, stay focused on your audience and their needs rather than your product features. It will help your audience to immerse in the story that’s being told in front of their eyes.
Use your audience’s emotions in your favor!
2. Educational Power is Certain
A strong advantage of a whiteboard video is that it’s dealing with a powerful memory element, our associations. Every time we look at a whiteboard, we travel back in time, and our minds automatically connect the moment to when a teacher explains a topic, mentioning the main points on the whiteboard. It all goes down to the educational association, and thus, will unconsciously draw attention of the audience interested in learning something new. It will, especially, save you when you need to explain a more complex concept.
What could be more educational than scribbling on a whiteboard, right?
3. Science: Viewers Feel Good & Take Action
Just turning to science, it can be easily explained why whiteboard animation videos make viewers feel good. The answer is mirror neurons. And, you might know what I’m talking about by remembering those contagious yawns. Right, it’s because of mirror neurons reacting in a similar way to how your brain would react if you were in the same situation as the person you’re watching. This means that we can experience the same emotion of those we see. So, about application of this knowledge to whiteboard videos…
When you watch a hand drawing on a whiteboard, your brain reacts as if you, yourself, are drawing it. Completion of a drawing brings that happy dopamine to your brain, as you think it’s you who finished drawing. This adds to the viewer’s desire to keep on watching and be glued to the screen, as well as to the viewer’s drive to follow up with the call to action at the end of the video.
The only limit to your campaigns is your imagination. And, I’m sure that your ideas won’t let you down! Go and skyrocket the success of your whiteboard projects!
Whiteboard animation videos are an essential tool for marketers trying to communicate complex concepts and ideas in a compelling way. Through its simplicity, a whiteboard video manages to grab and retain attention till the end. Utilize the power of Doodle Videos and Hands Animations with Moovly!
