It’s hard to deny that the future of marketing is video. According to a survey done earlier this year by Lemonlight, 94% of respondents shared that watching a video has helped them make a purchase decision at least once. Of those, 72% were swayed by a product demonstration video. Oh, and 98% of marketers believe that video will play an important role in marketing over the coming years—and we definitely agree!

In our experience, which is based on current research, any video is preferable to no video, even if it’s not a super high-quality, professional experience. That means that if you have to choose between a wall of text and a selfie video shot on your iPhone, the latter is more likely to help you reach your audience.

However, if you’re a video novice, getting in front of the camera might make you a little nervous. That’s totally understandable—if you’re not a writer, performer, or social media superstar, it might be hard to figure out exactly what to say. We’ve got your back. Below, we’ve written out five scripts that you can use to promote your business this holiday season—just grab your phone and fill in the brackets to get started. Whether you want to just read them verbatim or put your own spin on them, they’re yours for the taking!
