What are the trends for videos in 2021?

If you are looking at the 2021 landscape and overwhelmed with what type of videos you need for your nonprofit, then you are not alone. This year has seen video used a lot as a main communications medium. Take a look at the following list of video that we have seen will be trending for 2021.
Short stories with burnt in subtitles
Most people are now watching videos on their phones with the sound off. Don’t keep sound as a barrier from people to watch your videos. Burn in your subtitles to your videos for more views and more people seeing your videos.
Short organization overview
Don’t assume people know what your organization really does. Make a video explaining what you do and how you do it. It is not as emotional as the testimonies you might have but when people are on your website, they can know exactly what you do and how they can be involved. [example video]
Direct call to actions
Cut to the chase and let people know how they can be involved. Short 1 minute videos asking people to go, give, and pray can move people at the moment they see it to do the things you ask.
Donor hero stories
Your donors are an important part of your nonprofits story. Making them the hero and show how they can make huge impacts and change lives by giving, volunteering or by playing an important part in what you do. [example video]
Facebook, Instagram, and Linkedin made videos.
