Set the scene  

  • A good intro video should give viewers an overview of your YouTube channel in ten seconds or less, keeping them engaged and excited for what’s to come.   

  • Some popular intro video styles include simple logo animations, facecam recordings introducing yourself, and fast cinematic-style videos that highlight your best moments. 

  • Use a voiceover to share when you post new videos and remind viewers to like and subscribe if they enjoy your content to start building your community of loyal fans.

Make it pop

  • Fun and dynamic video editing with motion graphics, text animations and sound effects can grab eyeballs and make your intro memorable.

  • Add trending effects like the grainy VHS filter or the futuristic glitch effect, or simply add classic effects like soft light sparkles to complement your video aesthetic and editing style. 

  • Gaming, vlogging or travel—no matter your niche, express your individuality with royalty-free music and unique stickers. However, don’t overcrowd your short intro with too many elements.
