Video Scripts for YouTube

Last updated on January 12, 2021

In this post, I’m going to show you a very easy way that you can come up with video scripts for YouTube.

When you’re making videos for YouTube, regardless of your niche, it can be very difficult to know what to say, and you can get tongue tied.

Not everybody can ad lib, not everybody can wing it.

And if you want to come up with high converting scripts for your videos, there are expensive ways and there are free ways, and funnily enough, the free ways, if you know how, are super, super effective.

How do you do it?

Well, let me show you one of them in this post.

Buzz Sumo

First head a website called BuzzSumo.

Buzz Sumo is a service that allows us to see what content has proven to have gone viral on the web.

They have a free and a paid version, but for what we’re going to be doing, we just use the free version.

Now, of course, when you use anything free, there are going to be limitations in how often you can use it, and the features and functionalities that are available to you.

But for this purpose, it’s more than enough.

So what you want to do is you want to type in a phrase that is related to the product that you are trying to sell.

Now, this could be your own product or it could be an affiliate product.

If it’s your own product, you always have more control over what you can do, because you can actually log into your product, show people inside, and go through it in more detail.

If it’s an affiliate offer, then I always recommend that you either get a review copy, so that you can show people inside, and if you can’t, you still want to promote something, then buy it yourself.

Otherwise, why would you even consider promoting something if you’ve not got it?

So anyway, I’ve typed in the keyword, “burn belly fat”.

And then we’re going to use this keyword to get some viral articles, which is going to give us some ideas for content that we’re going to plug into a very simple video script.

In this case, we got shown some articles.

We’re limited in how many articles we can see because it’s the free version.

But in essence these are articles that are proven to go somewhat viral on social media.

For example, the top one got 8.9K engagements on Facebook. 

So if an article on a specific topic has proven to go viral, then you can safely say, for the most part, that it’s fairly popular information.

You want to go through these articles one by one to find a decent one.

With the free version of Buzz Sumo, it’s best to right click on the article in question and open in a new tab.

This is so that you are not limited in how many times you can see an article.

And just find an article that resonates with you, that’s closely connected to what it is you’re trying to sell.

So I found this article titled, “how to burn belly fat, five fat burning tips”.

And what I’ve done is, I’ve basically taken three of these tips and copied and pasted them onto a document, reworded them a little bit, because we can’t just copy stuff, and put it into a very simple yet high converting script.

Let’s see a script below.

An Example Script I made

Video title: How to + GOAL [in square brackets have secondary keyword if you can but don’t force it]

Example: How to Burn Belly Fat [Burn Up to 21lb of belly fat in 3 weeks)

Script (to be spoken)

If you are looking to GOAL then stay tuned to this video.

Example: If you are looking to BURN BELLY FAT NOW then stay tuned to this video.


Hi, my name’s xxxxx. I will show you in this video how you can

Example: Hi, my name’s xxxxx. I will show you in this video how you can Burn up to 21lb of belly fat in 21 days by making 3 changes to your diet.

Before I jump into the 3 steps, I just want to show you this:

Share your screen (SHOW PROOF)

+ Before and After shots

+ Live walkthrough of your personal results

+ Inside the product you are selling (own or affiliate)

So, here are the three simple steps you need to do (the number of steps doesn’t need to be 3, but do not go too high)

Below is an example:


Cut Back on Refined Carbs

Reduce your carb intake. Cut back on these foods as much as possible if you want to burn belly fat: white bread, white rice, pastries, pasta and breakfast cereals.


Eliminate as Much Sugar as Possible.

Excessive sugar intake leads to weight gain for a lot of people. Even natural sugars like honey should be consumed sparingly.


Avoid Trans Fats.

Trans fats are a type of fat found in foods like margarines, baked and fried foods, and are often added to packaged foods. They’ve been linked to inflammation and abdominal fat gain, not to mention heart issues. Avoid where you can.

So that’s it, guys.

If you’re looking to quickly burn belly fat then look no further than:


PRODUCT NAME will help you burn Belly Fat almost immediately.

You just need to head now to


(SHOW THEM you going to the sales page and

going as far as the checkout).

Thank you so much for watching this video, and have a great day

Watch Here to see this being done


With a little bit of planning, you can create a short but compelling video script to promote an offer without coming across salesy or hyped up.

It will probably take several attempts to get it right, but that’s perfectly normal.

Thanks for reading.
