Formality is key
When dealing with B2B explainer videos, it is important to keep the language formal. This is because of the recognition that instead of marketing directly to a regular consumer, you are marketing to another business. They are aware of the technicalities. They, most often, demand deeper information as they need to be reassured that you are as informed as they are. Additionally try and manage a formal and elegant use of call to action as well to compel the viewer to make a move

Remember corporate identity
Often businesses will let go of their corporate identity for a specific transaction with another business and will end up losing out. They don’t get the revenue they could have and are not portrayed to the public as what they set out to be. This it becomes vital for brand identity to remain intact. Sure it is good to have certain levels of flexibility but your explainer videos should uphold your brand identity as it is essential for your survival.
