How to End a Video

You just created a strong, personalized video message for your recipient, but you’re having trouble wrapping it up. A strong ending can really make an impact and inspire interaction from your audience. So, we’re going to address some dos and don’ts to ensure your video ends on a strong note.  

The Do’s and Don’ts

Do have confidence in what you’re saying. This confidence, or lack of it, will get reflected in your message. Consider your tone and body language to display your confidence. Try to enunciate your words and make eye contact with the camera, and avoid using phrases like so… um… yeah… 

Don’t downplay your message by saying things like, “Well, that’s all I wanted to say.” Your message brings value and purpose. 

Do have a call to action. Tell your viewer what they should do next and how to contact you. 

Don’t use open ended statements. Be as concrete as possible. Instead of, “I hope to hear back from you soon” try, “If I don’t reach out to you by the end of the month, I’ll reach out again.” 

Do make sure to say goodbye and thank you. It’s the little things that go a long way. 

Don’t look for the button at the end of the video to stop your message. With Covideo’s chrome extension, hitting the space bar will stop the video, allowing you to maintain eye contact through to the end.

Do make sure to stop your recording at the right moment. Sometimes if you stop it too late and move around, you end on an awkward angle. 

And those are our dos and don’ts when ending a video message.
