What is Social Media Lower Thirds?
Social Media Lower Thirds consist of animated social media icons with your @name on it. This is basically an animated video overlay which you can customize by adding your profile name, picture and description. Social media animations can be used on YouTube, Twitch and any other video streaming platforms, and can link to you Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Tiktok or any other known social media platforms (36+ social media platforms in our animation pack).
This is an effective way to capture your viewers’ attention and prompt them to subscribe to your social media. You can always use verbal reminders, but adding professional-looking lower-thirds is more effective since it conveys information more accurately.
You can use lower-thirds to highlight and enhance the important people, products and places in your videos. Lower-thirds should look professional, be easy to read and also complement your visuals, giving more context to your content. That’s exactly what the Profounder lower-thirds are — professionally designed animated visuals that will capture your audience attention and increase your subscription rate.
Your goal is to set up your channel in a way to help people subscribe and have them keep coming back.
- Portray your audience and think about what they want
- Create content that suits their needs and answers their questions
- Research keywords to write helpful descriptions and catchy headlines
- Prompt your viewers to subscribe — both verbally and with animated reminders
Above all, have fun and create kick-ass videos!
