How to write a good video script outline

From research, to script outline, to script. Create engaging and successful scripts by starting with an outline.
What we'll cover

After you have researched your video, the next step is drafting an outline that conveys your main message. An outline is an integral part of how Maekersuite generates the high quality scripts.

A good video script outline starts with an introduction and ends with a conclusion and Call to action. The contents in your main body vary based on which video script framework you are using.

Here is what a good video script outline should include in general:


  • Hook: Start with a compelling hook to grab the audience's attention during the first 2-5 seconds of your video.
  • Introduce the topic: Clearly state what the video is about and why it's relevant or interesting to the viewers.

Main body

  • Divide the main body into logical sections or points that support the topic.
  • Use bullet points or subheadings to outline key information or steps.
  • If applicable, provide examples, anecdotes, or evidence to reinforce your points.


  • Provide a brief summary of the main points covered in the video.
  • End with a Call to action: Encourage viewers to take a specific action such as subscribing to your channel, visiting your website, or sharing the video.

On Maekersuite, you can also use basic markup to make your outlines visually more readable.
