Share This Post

Church video announcements are a great and simple way to get information out to your congregation. If done correctly, these videos will get your congregation excited about upcoming events. If video announcements are done poorly, they will be hard to follow, won’t clearly get your message across, and can just seem awkward. There’s a lot that goes into making and editing a video message. While this may seem intimidating, it doesn’t have to be. With these five tips, you’ll be able to create awesome and effective church video announcements that will capture your audience’s attention.

1. Your Logo

When creating your video announcement, it’s important that you include your church logo or website URL. Including your brand in different ways in your video is important because it takes the guessing out of the equation for your audience to know which church this is for. You can add different aspects of your brand into the video, like your logo, website URL, brand colors, etc. 

2. Subtitles

Have you ever watched a video and couldn’t understand what the person was saying, so you just skipped it? If you can’t clearly understand a speaker or if the video doesn’t capture your attention, you probably won’t second guess swiping past the video. Subtitles help your audience connect better with you, and they allow your viewers to catch every word you say, even if they can’t necessarily hear it. Most people are visual learners, and having a script of what you’re saying in front of them will allow them to follow along with your message better. You can use an eye-catching font and color to make your subtitles pop. To integrate your brand, you can also change the color of your subtitles to match your logo to make it more uniform.

3. Visuals

When visuals are done correctly, they can entertain your viewers and keep them engaged in your message. The visuals should make sense with the theme of your announcement. For example, if you are making an announcement regarding a Christmas program, you may want to have Christmas lights or trees in the background. This will help tie in your announcement. It’s important to keep your visuals to a minimum. If your visuals are too over the top, they will be distracting and will take away from your message. You want your visuals to add to your message, not overpower it.

4. A Clear And Concise Call To Action

Lengthy videos are one way to lose your viewer’s interest in your message. Have you ever listened to an announcement, and the speaker gets carried away, tells a few stories, and then you completely forget what they were talking about? Writing out a short script could help you to navigate ahead of time your intro, outro, and transitions so you don’t get sidetracked. Short and concise announcements are straight to the point and will hold your viewer’s attention more. Try to keep your announcement video informative, entertaining, and engaging.
