Launching your own Animation

Place the animation on YouTube

Even if you only want to post your animation on your website, it might be wise to upload the explanation video to YouTube. For example, it is very easy to share YouTube videos in social media. Not a fan of Youtube? No problem, there are a lot of other websites where you can upload your video. Good examples are vimeo.com and wistia.com. The first step before uploading your explanation video is to choose a good title and description.

Choosing a good title

Nobody searches for spongy terms, so choose a title that clearly describes what your animation is about. For example, a sentence from the script or your slogan. Always prefer a clear title to a creative one. Example: “How does product A work?

A good description

For the description under the explanation video the same applies as for the title: describe as clearly as possible what happens in the video. This makes it much easier for people to find your animation. You have several animations? Then make sure that the descriptions are consistent with each other. YouTube recognizes similar descriptions and suggests one of your other animations to people who have viewed your animation.

Choose the right keywords

YouTube is a search engine, just like Google. By using relevant keywords (passwords) in the title, the description and by placing tags, your animation will be found more easily!

Below are a few tips on how to choose the right keywords:

Start with the tags that are most relevant to your story. What is explained in the animation?
Also add tags with often made spelling mistakes (people often mistype when searching!).
Use a YouTube keyword tool to find more relevant keywords.

Place the explanation video on the website

Once the animation is placed on YouTube, the next step is to place the animation on your website. A video on the website can make a big difference, but what should you watch out for? Embed the YouTube animation in your website. By adding the explanation video to YouTube, your website will be found better! (YouTube belongs to Google).You can search Animation companies in Singapore for greater details in animation.

Place your animation in a prominent place on your website, for example directly on the homepage. Don’t let the video play automatically, most people find it unpleasant.

More youtube subscribers

The more subscribers you have, the better people will be informed when you publish a new explanation video and the higher your animations will be placed in the search results. But how do you get new subscribers?

In the following we describe a simple method:

Add the name of your channel to this link (where now funkeanimations stands)
