A good script hooks in a user, keeps them invested throughout the video, and leaves them with a takeaway. You just have to make sure it has all the necessary components well-pieced together.
Creating a script has always been something that is perceived as difficult. Especially if the script is being made for public consumption. A lot of questions usually flow through the mind of content creators when they want to write scripts for their videos. These questions become even bulkier when these scripts are for YouTube videos.
Writing a good script for YouTube is no joke, it takes a lot of technical know-how, style, and dedication to create one that meets up the general audience standard. So without wasting any more time, let's handle some questions that may flow through your mind when you're creating scripts for your YouTube video content.
Hook: This is where you pique your viewer's interest, making them want to see how the video turns out.
Intro: Your intro should be sweet and catchy. Always introduce the problem or pain point you wish to talk about.
Body: Make sure your content is informative.
Conclusion/Takeaway: Leave the audience with value, something they can apply to their endeavors or share with others. Or even just an emotion.
