How To Write A Perfect YouTube Script
Hi, my name is Amechi, a writer with many years of priceless experience. And in this blog post, I'll be teaching you how to write the perfect YouTube script.
Follow these tips to write your YouTube scripts like a pro!
1. Start With A Hook
As the name implies, the “hook” is what keeps the viewers interested in what the video has to offer. Without it, they’ll be gone after the first 30 seconds or so.
The hook should start with an interesting fact, or a question that can spark the curiosity of the viewer.
If the video is about “the world's most expensive cars”, you can start the script with a line like this –
“If you thought the $3 million 2021 Bentley was the world’s most expensive car, better think again because it’s not!”
A person who initially thought the 2021 Bentley was the most expensive would be interested in finding out which cars are more expensive. And this would generate interest in the video, causing them to keep watching.
2. Write The Intro
Now that you’ve got their attention with the hook, you need to write an equally captivating intro.
The intro should expand on the topic and tell the viewers what to expect at the end. This is called the “climax”.
Since we’re using the world’s most expensive cars as an example, you can write the intro like this –
“The 2021 Bentley might cost $3 million, but there are cars that cost a lot more. In this video, we’ll be looking at the most expensive cars in the world. And you won’t believe which cars cost the most.
If you want to find out which, then you have to watch this video to the very end”.
These sentences increase the viewers interest, as well as the amount of time they will spend watching the video.
3. Welcome Note And First Call To Action
After the intro, the next thing you need to write is a welcome note.
This would be something like –
“Welcome to "XYZ" channel, where we bring you daily updates on the latest automobile trends”.
After welcoming the viewers, you need to write the first call to action.
This would be something like –
“Before we get into our list of the world’s most expensive cars, be sure to subscribe to our channel and hit the notification bell so you can stay updated with more great content like this as soon as we upload”.
This line informs the viewer what your channel is about, so they know what to expect every time they tune-in. It also encourages them to subscribe to the YouTube channel, and they most-likely will if they are interested in the kind of content you produce.
4. Write The Content
This is the part the viewers have been waiting for. Here, you need to make the content as detailed as possible.
If it’s the “most expensive cars” script you are writing, then do so in the form of a listicle, starting from the greatest number to number one.
If you’re talking about 10 cars, then countdown from 10 to 1. That’s the cheapest on the list, to the most expensive.
You’re doing this to keep the viewers stuck. If you start writing from the most expensive, then they would lose interest in watching the rest of the video.
5. Tease The Climax
When you’ve gone halfway across the list, it is important that you take a break and tease the climax with a few curiosity-inciting lines.
You can write something like this –
“As you can see, the 2021 Bentley isn’t the most expensive car in the world. However, if you think the prices of the cars mentioned so far are outrageous, just wait until you see how much the other cars on this list cost!
“You won’t believe it !!!”
These lines will keep the viewers itching to get to the end!
6. Write The Rest Of The Content
This is where you’ll write about the other cars on the list, up until you get to number one.
7. Write The Outro And Ask A Comment-Baiting Question
Now you’ve reached the end of the script, but you don’t want the viewers to leave without taking action. This is why you need to ask a comment-baiting question.
The purpose of this is to get the viewers to take action. In this case, you want them to leave their thoughts in the comment section for the purpose of engagement.
You can write something like –
“So what do you think about the prices of these cars? Outrageous right?
Visit the comment section and let us have your thoughts, we’d be glad to hear from you”.
You should also ask them to subscribe to the channel and hit the notification bell for regular updates.
This is exactly how the professionals write their YouTube scripts, and your clients will love it!

Do not engage him if you haven't already. He scammed me.
I bought into his nairaland posting also and I gave him a book to write since November, 2020, this is March 2021, up till now he has not been able to come up with an outline talkless of writing the eBook. Against my better sense of judgement against paying upfront, he made me pay you an advance of 14k after which he practically went AWOL and has since refused to respond to my emails.

How dare you say I refused to respond to your emails? I made it very clear to you that the most effective form of communication for me is Whatsapp. This is because I receive hundreds of mails everyday and I hardly check my inbox, so it's easy for me to miss many messages. Which is why I asked that we communicate via WhatsApp and you blatantly refused.
I don't even know the last emails you sent because I never even came across them. You are the one that chose to go AWOL!
From the screenshots below it is obvious I practically begged you to reach me via WhatsApp with the updated table of content you came up with since I couldn't find them among the 25,000 unread messages I had in my inbox, yet you refused. And this was after the initial deposit of 14k, which shows you are a LIAR!
You are MAD for trying to discredit me here!

Shouting here will not change the fact that that this the March and a job you were given to work on before November is yet undone.
As the email you referenced stated, all my official communication are done via emails because I communicate with various writers vendors all the time and the only way I can remember our last correspondence is to refer to the email thread. As a matter of fact, all our communications were done via email before I paid the advance and during that period, you were able to track your emails until of course your advance was paid and suddenly you are no longer able to track emails.
The fact of the matter is, events have overtaken that content and it is no longer relevant. November to March is a long time.
If you are a honorable man, woman, boy or girl, you would have since completed the work and sent it to the customer’s preferred means of communication which in my case remains emails. In anycase, you can also decide to refund the money if you are really credible.
If any of you thinks this is his first time, then perhaps you may want to see a previous allegation again him here https://www.nairaland.com/6086124/amechi-okoli-amech213-fraudulent-writer.
