Updated: Dec 4, 2023

Delegating the creation of a promotional video can be challenging, especially when communicating your vision to a virtual assistant (VA). Consider a scenario where unclear instructions result in a video that doesn't align with your brand or message. In such instances, the video might miss the mark, leading to wasted resources and a lost opportunity to engage your audience effectively.


In this blog article, we'll provide a clear path to effectively assign the task of creating a promotional video to your VA, ensuring your message is accurately and creatively portrayed.



What You Need to Prepare:

To empower your VA in crafting an impactful video, collect the following data, information, and files:

  1. Brand Guidelines or Visual Identity

  2. Script or Key Messaging

  3. Visual Assets (Images, Logos, Videos, etc.)

  4. Target Audience Insights

  5. Desired Call to Action or Objectives
