What is a sizzle reel?

You can tell a lot about a person by the way they shake your hand. The purpose of a Sizzle Reel is to serve as the ideal first-touch or “handshake” with someone who is unfamiliar with your brand. They should be able to get a solid understanding of the type of business you are after this quick, 60 to 90-second video.

Afterward, the audience should know what your business does, how it operates, and why. Sizzle reels are typically voiceover-driven, composed of associated live-action b-roll, supplemented with appropriate and catchy music, and opens and closes with a dank logo animation – much like a sports highlight reel. These are also usually paired with an additional 30-second re-edit that’s perfect for social media distribution campaigns.

Reasons to Make a Sizzle Reel

1. It’s Valuable

A Sizzle Reel is a multi-purpose video asset and can live almost anywhere. It fits great on a Facebook page, YouTube channel, LinkedIn page, Website homepage or landing page, as a television commercial, you name it! It’s a versatile asset that you can use to drive your audience to your site, or keep them there when they arrive.

2. Lays the Foundation For Future Videos

Here at The Evoke Group, efficiency is key. Anytime we complete a Sizzle Reel video project, we keep all files in our archive for future use. This means that we can take the clips from our previous production, and edit them to fit another use case scenario! We can shorten it, lengthen it, keep it the same length and rearrange the clips, whatever! Developing the foundation for a video content library is another benefit of producing your sizzle reel.

3. You deserve it

A sizzle reel isn’t just a perfect forward facing asset, it’s also perfect for internal reflection and a source of pride! Almost every completed sizzle reel is followed by a client saying, “Wow!”. Not just because it looks good, but because their message, mission, pride, passions, and convictions have been captured and delivered in a short video. It’s like a moving scrapbook that they can watch over and over again, show to current and potential employees, send to friends and family or bring up when someone asks, “What does your company do?” in everyday conversation.

Things to Consider When Planning your Sizzle Reel

  • Why do you do what you do?
  • Who could benefit from your product or service?
  • What are the most visually captivating aspects of your business?
  • What music best fits the vibe of your brand?
  • Who will voice the script?
  • What will your call-to-action be?
