Explainer videos keep your viewers hooked:

As a business owner, you only have eight seconds to convince an individual that the content in front of them is what they are looking for. Explainer videos keep viewers hooked to your site, sometimes long enough to convince them to buy from you.
Explainer videos improve your conversion rates:
When placed correctly on your website's landing page, an explainer video scripted with a talented copywriter's aid will aid in conversions. Many people won't bother browsing through your site to find the products or services you have to offer unless something prompts them to.
An explainer video can be the boost you need to increase the number of sales you have.
Explainer videos make you visible: if you know a thing or two about SEO, you'll agree that now, websites with mixed media (videos and Images) rank higher than websites without mixed media.
Because of that, an explainer video is crucial (except you don't want to be seen). Ensure that when you create one, your tag words and video title are SEO optimized.
Explainer videos make you stand out from the crowd:
Everyone today can make a website. A simple but professional looking website is more likely to make more sales than the alternative. The addition of explainer videos gives it a professional vibe. When well crafted, it shows your business's legitimacy and why people should buy from you rather than from other sources. Innovation is critical here because there are millions of explainer videos online.
