In this video , you will learn how to create a great whiteboard animation in seven easy to follow steps .

But why should you consider creating a whiteboard video in the first place ?

Well , research conducted by Professor Richard Weissman at the University of Hertfordshire found that when compared to a more standard talking head video whiteboard animations better help the audience retain factual information and have a greater chance of being liked and shared .

This makes them one of the best video stars for creating high impact educational content .

I'm gonna be showing you what I think is the easiest , lazy way possible to make money online today , even if you are a completely broke beginner now , for this to be the laziest way possible making money online , it needs to meet a few criteria .

One .

It requires no upfront investment , meaning you don't have to pour money into the business in the beginning , if you don't want to or you simply can't .

Two .

You can do the work once and continue to get paid well into the future free .

You don't have to show your face or even use your voice if you don't want to .

Four .

You don't have to create some kind of product .

And finally , number five .

It's not that hard to learn as a complete beginner , because I want this to work for as many people as possible .

Now you may be asking right now what is this amazing way of making money online today that fits all these criteria ?

Well , it's going to be promoting a high ticket partner product with a high volume traffic source .

Now , I promise you this isn't as complicated as it may sound , and I'm actually going to give you a quick overview of this right now , the first step will be finding something that you're interested in that overlaps with something that is highly profitable .

Now , to do this , it's very simple .

One thing I will mention here is that when writing the script for your whiteboard animation , make sure you keep it as short and impactful as possible .

A good rule of thumb is to remember that every 150 words of your script will be equivalent to approximately one minute in video duration .

Step two record your voiceover .

Once you've finalise your script , the next step in the process is to record your voiceover .

It is important to record your voiceover straight after you've written your script , because the voiceover will be used to mark the timings for the animation during the storyboard stage , you can either do your voiceover yourself or get it recorded by a professional voiceover artist to a high standard and at a relatively low cost .

If you decide to record your voice over yourself , make sure you use a good quality microphone and have a quiet , soundproof room to do your recording .

And make sure the tone of your voice is expressive and upbeat as a passive monotone voice will lower the engagement of your video .

Step three story Boarding The next step in the production process is to create your storyboard .

This basically involves creating rough sketches of the visual images that you want to appear in your video during specific time intervals .

Pretty much like a comic strip , it is useful to use a storyboard template to help you with this .

There are numerous free storyboard templates online and available to download Step four .

Create your illustrations once you've finalised your storyboard .

The next step in the process is to create your illustrations using a software tool such as Adobe Illustrator or Ink Scape .

If you don't feel comfortable drawing your own bespoke images or simply don't have the time , don't worry .

You can use preexisting ones from the stock image galleries available in popular whiteboard animation production software such as video scribe and doodly .

Just go and open up a good document or a word document , whatever your preference is , and just literally type out everything that you enjoy most and have an interest in .

And I recommend writing down at least 10 things .

These could be hobbies , just anything you enjoy doing in your free time .

Then what you want to do is see if anything that you are interested in overlaps with any of these high paying niches on screen right now , and only anything in your list that does not overlap with any of the high paying niches listed on screen right now .

And feel free to pause the video right now .

If you still need to look at this list and if you're wondering why we're even doing this , do not worry .

Just trust the process .

This will all make sense in just a moment .

Now , for the second step , you want to actually get a high ticket partner product to do this .

It's very simple .

You just need to go to a marketplace that hosts all these different partner products .

And some of the best websites for this type of thing are going to be Digital 24 and my personal favourite Click Bank .

But for this example here , I'm going to be using Digital 24 instead of Click Bank , but even works absolutely fine .

So don't worry , you will still be able to follow along .

Now .

An important thing to remember when adding music and sound effects to your video is that they should complement your story but never overshadow it .

So it's important to make sure that the volume of your sound effects and background music doesn't overpower your voiceover .

Step seven .

Thumbnail and video activation .

Having an engaging thumbnail is essential for making sure all the hard work that you put into creating your video finally pays off .

The more engaging your thumbnail , the more compelled people will be to watch your video .

If you need more information on how to create engaging thumbnails , you can watch our video , which will teach you exactly this .

The link to which I've included in the description below promoting your video is another important component to consider .

This includes creating a high conversion design for the landing page , on which you will add your video and following the best practises for the social media channels that you will use to promote it .

Once you're on Digital 24 you simply want to go ahead and click on the marketplace , and then you'll have a bunch of these partner products show up and you can just click on one of the categories on the left that are related to whatever it was that you were interested in that overlaps with our high profit niches list from Step one and just go from there .

I recommend you look for a product that will make you at least $200 per sale , And that's because even if you just get one sale a day , that's double the $100 a day I suggested you could achieve in the title of this video to know what you would make per purchase of one of these partner products is gonna be by looking at the earnings around right underneath , where it tells you the commission percentage now to promote the product you're interested in .

Just go and quickly make a digital 24 account , and this really shouldn't take any longer than , like a minute to do so .

So do not worry .

And once you have your account , you just want to go back to your product , and you simply want to click on the promote now button .

And just like that , you will have your partner link .

Now that you've got your partner link , something important that you want to do is mask this link , and what I mean by that is shortening the link and making it look a lot nicer .

And to do this is very simple .

Another key factor , which separates great whiteboard animations from the more standard ones , is that the higher performing ones do a significantly better job of generating the desired emotions in their viewers .

So make sure you take into consideration how you will accomplish this through your narration , the tone of your voiceover and the use of visual images .

Upbeat and expressive videos almost always deliver better results than monotone ones .

Tip three .

Keep it traditional .

Most whiteboard animations stick to the same format of a white background with black sketches .

There is a very good reason why this formula keeps getting repeated , and that's that it simply works in general .

Diverging from this time tested approach and over using colour , particularly in the backgrounds , tends to reduce the impact of the video as it can distract the viewer from its message .

Now this doesn't mean that you should never use colour just that you should use it more conservatively .

Just go to a website like bit dot com , then paste in your link on their shortener and boom .

Just like that , you would have shortened your partner product link .

And as you can see , it does look a lot better like this .

Now that you've got your partner links sorted , we can move on to step three , and step three is going to be the lazy content strategy .

Now , for the first part of this step , you need to go ahead and get your ideas for this lazy content strategy .

So to begin , simply head to youtube dot com , and you want to type in niche that is related to your interests from the first step and then simply hit search .

Then you want to go to the top six channels within that niche , sort their videos by the most popular and take five of their most popular videos come into a total of 30 videos , and you want to write them down along with the links each of those videos in somewhere like a Google a word document .

And once that's done , we can move on to the next part of this step .

It does require a tiny bit more work , but trust me , it's a lot better than all the other methods being promoted out there because once you set this up , it can continue to pay you well into the future , meaning you can do the work once and truly enjoy passive income .

So make sure to keep watching .

This will all make sense in just a few moments .
