What is a course promo video?

A course promo video is a video you make to promote your upcoming course. The purpose is to generate excitement for your course and give potential students an idea of what they’ll get if they sign up or purchase the course. In Tella’s screen recorder, you can record both your screen and webcam and change the layout, so your course promo video is clear, professional, and effective at building your audience.

Do online courses need a course promo video?

A promo video is a key part of marketing your online course. Without video, it can be harder for your potential students to connect with you and understand what they’ll get out of the course. Making a course promo video is a way to convince your audience why they should sign up to learn from you.

How long should a course promo video be?

For your course promo video to remain engaging and attract students, try to keep the video between 2-3 minutes. You don’t need to go into too much detail on every part of your course. Just give a high-level overview of what you cover and emphasise the outcomes for students.
