5 Tips for Writing a Compelling Script for Corporate Video

Nov 28, 2022

Corporate video is a powerful communication tool, but as any corporate video producer knows, writing a compelling script requires careful planning and attention to detail. When used correctly, it can help promote your brand, build trust with your audience, and engage your customers.  

Before you get started, define your goals and determine the key points you want to communicate. This will help to keep the script focused and ensure that it achieves its purpose. Here are a few more tips for writing a script that will grab your viewer’s attention and keep them engaged.

Choose a Structure

Choose a structure that will enhance the story you want to tell. Whether it’s a linear narrative or an interview format, picking the right framework can add impact to your message. In addition, include visual elements in your script to bring it to life onscreen and add another dimension for viewers. And don’t forget about storytelling – incorporating personal anecdotes or case studies can make the content more relatable and memorable for viewers. By following these tips, you can create a powerful script for your corporate video.

Write for Your Target Audience

Who is your target audience? What are their needs and wants? What kind of language do they use? Answering these questions will help you write copy that resonates with your audience. If your viewer has specific needs or pain points, addressing those in your script can make it more relatable and persuasive.

Keep It Conversational

To ensure your company does not come across as stiff and inauthentic, you may want your script to sound more like a conversation, not a lecture. Imagine that you’re speaking to just one person, and write accordingly. This will help ensure that your script comes across as natural and genuine—two things that are important when building trust with your audience. It’s also important to keep language clear and concise. Use simple, strong language rather than flowery words or overly technical terminology.  Before finalizing it, do some practice runs and record yourself speaking the lines aloud. This can give you a sense of how the words will sound in conversation and allow you to make any last adjustments.

Use Powerful Language

The words you use in your script should be chosen carefully. In addition to using keywords that are relevant to your audience, you’ll also want to use language that is emotive and action-oriented. For example, instead of saying “we provide SEO services,” you could say “we help businesses achieve higher search engine rankings.” The latter option is more likely to grab your viewer’s attention and compel them to take action.


Get Help From Professionals

Professionals can bring fresh ideas and perspectives that may not have occurred to someone without their level of expertise. Ultimately, investing in professional help can ensure corporate video can lead to a higher return on investment for your company. Remember, if done well, this one tool in your marketing arsenal could be used again and again for years. On your website, as an online ad, and more. 

When in doubt, don’t skimp – trust the experts and get the most out of your corporate video. If you’d like to learn more about this, let’s talk! Corporate video production is what we do best.
