How to Create a Thank You Video: Tips + Ideas

Thank you” — two little words that can mean the world. 

But what if you want to say, “thanks” in an even more meaningful way? No…you don’t have to rent a skywriter. Instead, you can say it with a video (definitely cheaper this way too). 

Magisto has unique, customizable templates to create a memorable thank you that will make anyone’s day. 

Here are 5 thank you video tips and ideas to show those around you that you really care:

  1. Thanks for Showing Up
  2. Thanks for Being You
  3. Thanks for Everything You Do
  4. Thanks to All My Loyal Fans
  5. Thanks for the Birthday Wishes

1. Thanks for Showing Up

Whether you just threw a killer party, hosted an adorable baby shower, or celebrated an epic wedding, ‘thank your guests for being a part of your day’ with a personalized video. Thanking people that took time to show up for you is a touching way to share how much it meant to you.

Record your personalized message, or upload photos from your event in a slideshow. Then send it via email so your recipients will get your thank you note, right away.

2. Thanks for Being You

Sometimes, the special people in your life need a reminder about just how awesome they are. Whether you want to thank them for a particularly kind gesture, or simply show support for being an incredible human, give them a ‘thanks for being you video’. 

Use the template as is with your own kind words, or customize it using photos, or Magisto’s collection of animated graphics, soundtracks, and more.

3. Thanks for Everything You Do

Whether it’s your mom, dad, uncle, grandma, neighbor, or friend, we’ve all got someone in our lives who helps us through the hard times, or goes out of their way to make us feel loved. Thank them for all of their support over the years with a ‘thanks for everything video.

Upload photos of moments you’ve shared together, and add sentimental text telling them how much their presence has meant to you. To add more movement to your slideshow, you can add animations to your text and stickers — for a thank you note that’s really moving.

4. Thanks to All My Loyal Fans

If you have a strong social media account, a blog, newsletter, or business, thank your fanbase for their time, attention, and all those “likes.” Using Magisto’s ‘thanks for the follows’ video template, you can personally send a message of thanks to all of your dedicated fans that were with you since day one. Because where would you be without them? 

Not only is video a deeply powerful way to personalize your message, it’ll be a special treat on your follower’s feed or inside their inbox. They’ll love you even more because of it!

5. Thanks for the B-Day Wishes

It’s your special day, which means the love is pouring in (stop, you shouldn’t have!). Whether someone wished you a happy birthday on social media, or went out of their way to send you a gift, you want to show your gratitude and appreciation for their gestures.
