I know that choosing a video template is often easier said than done. Even though there are hundreds of free templates at your fingertips, finding a suitable template for your specific projects can sometimes feel pretty overwhelming. Especially if you don’t have the time to investigate. 

So it’s time I’ll let you in on these four juicy Powtoon tricks so you can be sure to choose the perfect template EVERY SINGLE TIME. 

Let’s go!

1. Pick a Template According to Your Field

If you are on the time count, picking templates based on the field you are working in will immensely speed up your choosing process. Whether you are a business owner, student, employee, working in education, HR, L&D, sales, marketing, or even the CEO of a large corporation, Powtoon’s got you covered. Before you start choosing, take advantage of the category selection above your templates gallery and select your field.

2. Choose a Template Look

Once you have selected your field, you can choose between 5 types of template looks.

Infographic 

Infographic style allows you to present your data in a more engaging way. Instead of overwhelming them with numbers, present information in a way that’s easy to consume and retain.

Cartoon

If you want to be more playful and lighthearted, Cartoons are the way to go. A sweet reminder of our childhood and the power to educate and inform more cheerfully, cartoons make an excellent pattern interruption to recapture attention.

Whiteboard

This look will literally draw out your message! Whiteboard styles work great for any type of explainer video and make it much easier to follow complicated topics. With the right message and the key images, your audience will be captivated.

Modern Edge

Modern Edge is a more sleek and contemporary version of the Cartoon look. Suited for any type of video, Modern Edge templates can be used for corporate just as well as small businesses or school purposes. Not only that, Modern Edge characters can be customized to represent the diversity of your employees or students.

Real

Real is for those that are trying to achieve a highly professional look. It works great for business meetings, corporate gatherings, or more serious announcements. This style is perfect for highlighting stock footage, images, and your recordings

3. Be Very Clear On What Type of Video You Want to Create

Whether you’re looking to create an announcement, a CV, or a training video, knowing what you want to create beforehand helps you find that perfect template much quicker. Preparing like this also makes it easier to customize your template once chosen. In short – kill two birds with one stone.
