What’s an explainer video?
An explainer video is a marketing tool that explains your product and service in a creative yet simplified manner.
Most explainer videos are built around the following structure: the problem, the solution (your product), and how your product works.
Explainer videos should be short, memorable, and entice your viewers to take action.
