1. Whiteboard animation is no more popular:

Whiteboard animation was once a very popular, with it is innovativeness and freshness lent to regular Explainer video.

Some of the business concepts only look good in 3D than others. 3D animation helps you create a lifelike prototype of your vision. Its strength lies in how Throughout the video you’ll see every object interacts with others just like it would in real life. Any product can come alive with 3D animation.

You may have an engaging, informative video, but if it fails to create the same impression on the smartphone, you have lost a major chunk of the audience! For the mobile version, The text of the video needs to be big, bold, and to the point. Text-heavy video does not work at all, each screen of text should have 3 to 5 words arranged in a clear way.

5. Use elements from your video in other campaigns:

If you have created an animation explainer video with a character that represents your brand, you can also use the same for other marketing campaigns to get as much value out of it as possible. The mascot can be used for presentations and other marketing collaterals. This will greatly help your customers identify your brand easily and it's campaigning.
