As a YouTube Video Editor,
Maintaining good Retention Rates in clients' videos is My Job.
Here are 7 Video Editing Tricks I use to Hook viewers to my Videos:
(Tutorials and Free Resources Included)
The majority of the audience quit your video in the First 20 seconds.
To tackle that, you have to make your intro as much Promising and Engaging as Possible.
Watch this short video by Niklas Christl,
He adds more than 15 inserts in less than 30 seconds
Reading On-Screen texts requires viewers' active focus,
Which actually hooks the viewer to watch more of it subconsciously.
That's why big names like:
Dakota Robertson and Alex Hormozi always use Bold Subtitles in their Video.
Have a look
3. Jump Cuts and Ken Burns
Bring life to your A-Rolls by scaling in and out constantly.
Zoom out- 100%
Ken Burns - zoom
Use Jump Cuts with Ken Burns and trick viewers' eyes to think
Those are different camera angles and movements.
Here's a short tutorial
You aren't giving a speech, you're making a YouTube video.
People are gonna get bored of watching you,
And to cover that up,
You need to keep adding "relevant" b-rolls every now and then.
Comment "B Roll" and I'll write a thread about how to get free b-rolls.
5. Sound Effects
Don't just let them see what's happening, let them hear that too.
Simple sound effects like "click", "whoosh", and "bass" can add life to your lower thirds and b-rolls.
Can you identify all the sounds used in this short clip?
(I bet you can't)
6. Short Animations
I know it's time-consuming and not everyone can deal with keyframes,
But believe me, it provides the highest ROI.
Learn to animate short clips like this and that will make you extraordinary
