Craft a sketch of the entire video as to how it will begin and where will it end.
Know your Audience
The purpose of creating an animated video is to connect its viewers with the content. If you manage to hold and sustain the attention of the target audience you can be sure to make a huge turnaround from the video. Now to connect with your audience you must understand them first. You should know what they think about the service you are about to resent and know there needs as well.

The basics of creating a video are to deliver a message or make the viewer understand the process of a product or service. Normally videos explain a service in brief or educate viewers about the working of a product. Now how can you add appeal in it? You can create a combination of live action and animation. Use guidelines and animate the object using overlaid graphics or cartoon interspersals. Animate the entire process or draw pictures that demonstrate the functionality of the product. This will not only hold their attention but will add credibility to your work too.
Work On the Design Theme
No matter how good your animation is but you need to ponder on the design elements too including color selection or theme of the video. A video with dull colors will not be motivational enough to make viewers dig deep into it. They will be least interested to give it to check it. This will create a negative influence on your overall efforts.
