By reading these lines, you probably know how important the videos are for your business. Even if it's a YouTube video, a TikTok video, and even a short video story post, you need an excellent intro for it to make your video unforgettable.

Your video intro should not be too rambling, complex, or simple, like a static image, text, or company brand. No matter the platform where it's run, a good video introduction can get your audience to keep watching or break the success of your video.

With DanceLogo, anyone can make a unique animated intro video for any platform by uploading a simple image, like your brand, text, picture, or illustration, and following easy steps.

What is an intro video?

An intro video is a visual static or animated one that appears at the beginning of a video. The video intro is widely present in any video, from podcasts, reviews, company presentations, business videos, advertisements, and even short video stories. Also, keep in mind that video intros are the most-watched port of your videos.

An intro video created on DanceLogo is a video motion effect applied to a static visual element, like a picture, logo, symbol, or illustration. The final result will be an intro video ready to be downloaded and used as your introduction for your future video posts.
