Today, we’re diving head-first into the dynamic, ever-evolving world of video marketing. But this ain’t your run-of-the-mill ‘create a cool video and hope for the best’ deal. Oh no, we’re taking things up a notch (or ten!). You see, we’re not just talking about making videos, we’re talking about lead-capturing videos.
🤔 What’s a lead-capturing video, you ask? Picture this: a viewer stumbles upon your video, they watch it, they love it, and then – BAM! – a form pops up, capturing their name and email. Just like that, a viewer becomes a lead, someone you can reach out to, someone who’s interested in what you have to offer. See an example here.
🎈 Sound exciting? Good, because we’re about to embark on a humorous and illuminating journey on how to add a lead capture form to your video for free. Get ready for a fun-filled ride that even roller coasters will be envious of!

Extra Tips to Maximize Your Lead Capture 🎣
Deciding Where to Place Your Email Collector 📍
You can put your email collector anywhere in your video, but the golden rule is to consider your conversion goals and the type of video. If you’re offering highly valuable information, put it at the start. If your video is more of long-form content like a webinar, put it in the middle. For product videos, place them at the end. It’s all about balance!
To Gate or Not to Gate? 🚧
You can give viewers the option to skip the lead capture form, but our data shows that conversion rates soar when skipping is not an option. However, remember to consider the quality of the leads. Sure, you can catch more fish with a wider net, but are they the kind of fish you want?

Your video is the star of the show, but the right script can make it shine even brighter. Adding the magic word “email” to your form can boost conversion rates! But remember, the key is to make your text appealing and provide value to your viewers.
By following this guide, your video will not just be a content piece but a powerful, lead-snagging tool! 🚀 Happy lead capturing!
