Day 75-77 - Intro Video for my SaaS - UserBitlife UserBit entrepreneurship
Making an intro video is tough
There’s a good reason I was procrastinating on making a video. Anything that I feel that I might not be able to do a good job at, I’m hesitant to do. Nevertheless, it had to be done. It took 3 days of non-stop editing, animating and trimming to get something decent. Here’s an outline of the approach I followed:
Step 1: Research
I went through a ton of other SaaS videos. Most turned out to be explainer videos. What I really wanted to create was a launch video. Something that excites people about the features of UserBit. I could only find a few videos and they all had voiceover artists and really nice animated story telling. I don’t have the skills, budget or time for creating something like that.
While running in the gym though, a verizon ad came on tv. It was simple, powerful and mostly text. I thought that could be something I could go for.
Step 2: Music
A big shoutout to bensound for offering royalty free music that is actually pretty good. I went through their selection and found something that I thought could work
Step 3: Script
I decided to jot down everything that I wanted to showcase in the video. At max I wanted to have 1 and a half minute worth of content.
Step 4: Get to work
Camtasia is godsend when it comes to creating video. Here’s the result that I intend to use for launch:
