Capturing viewers’ attention is paramount, and our workbook guides you in creating compelling hooks at the beginning of your videos. Learn techniques such as intriguing questions, captivating visuals, or surprising statements that serve as effective hooks, ensuring engagement within the first 5-15 seconds – the desired length for most platforms.

Understanding the context in which people use different platforms is equally vital. Tailoring your content accordingly is explored, with platform-specific considerations for Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, and YouTube. Adapt your content to fit each platform’s context, user expectations, and preferred content types, maximizing your reach and impact.

Accessibility is a key focus, with a discussion on accommodating viewers who may not be able to listen to audio. Providing captions or subtitles is highlighted as a crucial step, enhancing accessibility and ensuring your message reaches a broader audience.
