Keep it Short

The Best of What You Do
Now they have seen your face in the first few seconds, show some clips of your workplace, customer interactions and most importantly, what you do best with a voice-over speaking about your company. Keep it casual and let your personality shine. No one wants to just watch you read a script like a monolog for the entire time and this is a good way to make your video more interesting.
Talking about your business and including written testimonials are your website are great, but what will really persuade prospects are video testimonials. Including short clips of your clients speaking about their experiences can add more credibility and variety to your promo video.
