2. How to create an engaging intro/outro to your course

Intros and outros serve as the bookends to a video, offering numerous benefits to content creators and viewers alike. 

A well-crafted intro captures attention from the get-go, setting the tone, establishing brand identity, and creating anticipation for the content ahead. It's an opportunity to showcase a logo, tagline, or memorable visuals that immediately resonate with the audience. 

On the other hand, outros are a graceful way to conclude a video, providing closure while encouraging engagement through calls-to-action, such as subscribing, liking, or directing viewers to related content. 

Intro/outro templates

They enhance the overall professionalism of the video, leaving a lasting impression and encouraging viewers to stay connected.
