Frequently Asked Questions

What information do I need to put on my video thumbnail?

To get more viewers clicking through your videos on Pinterest, Instagram, and all your social media feeds, it's best to have bold colors from your custom Brand Kit, clear text in a large font that tells the audience what your video is about, and if possible, a person's face (real or animated). If you decide to add a face to your thumbnail, be sure it's funny, happy, silly, or full of emotion. 🙂
