The video section itself provides 16 seconds of video running time which is enough for a quick TikTok story as well as three different pages showcasing different varieties of this template.

3Text and background
This template is also quite the classic for a TikTok thumbnail and is very adaptable to your specific video. It showcases what many thumbnails need such as the video in the back and the title at the front. With this one, you can have a quick snippet of your video and have a catchy sentence to capture your consumer’s attention.
4Classic and versatile
This template offers a little bit more than the previous one as it encapsulates the video element and the CTA or title. One distinction is the framing around the edge which gives it more depth and helps the copy to stand out.

Featuring four different slides, each one equates to 5 seconds except the final one which sits at 6 seconds. The other pages feature the same elements but in different ways.

Perfect for announcing a sale in your business or for any other type of video such as ‘Meet the team’ or showcase a product or service review.

8Product or service details
Here is a template that could be used for a product or service-based business. This could be perfect for marketing coaches for example to screen record doing something or showcase your company’s behind-the-scenes.
A quick video template but one that will help in your engagement. This template can be used to write out a FAQ from your audience, for a product or service-based business. This will help with engagement on your video and hopefully create a conversation in your comments section. I would advise uploading this video without giving away the answer straight away and waiting a couple of hours before denouncing the answer so people chat about it in the comments section.
These templates offer a variety of structures and options to be rebranded and changed to how you wish. Some offer more video whilst others provide more room for copy. They can be used for both product and service-based businesses and can also serve as prompts for content ideas.
