Tips on Video Making

November 2nd, 2010

Though I have made many videos in the past I have embarked on an exercise last week wherein a worldwide marketing group of forty professionals are making one video every day for the next seven weeks. That’s a huge bank of videos under production and a terrific learning experience and sharing for all concerned.

Personally, after finishing with the first week I had five notes to self, which would be valuable tips for you, whether or not you’ve made videos earlier.

The first is, to speak slowly. I find I tend to mumble words when spoken fast and the purpose of making the video is defeated if the audibility is poor.

Second, the background we choose is very important. Using natural settings is perfect because it is a soothing, non-distracting background that keeps the viewer riveted on the message (rather than on the tell-tale clutter on the bed behind you).

Third, use a powerful editing package. Video editing is what makes it slick or webcam. If you have been watching many videos you’ll know what I mean by webcam. Anyway, editing is not a compensation for slippages in delivery, rather an enhancement through slides etc., for accentuating the points made.

Number four is the point about rhythm. Due to other pressing work one cannot shoot every day so one tends to keep stock and edit every now and then. But this is not a good idea as it does not allow for daily improvement based on feedback.

And finally, when you are making videos be sure to benchmark against others and comment on their videos. This is healthy for all concerned.

Make Money Making Videos

When you think about it, the reason you make any money is 3-fold:

  1. There is a need for what you do
  2. You have an ability to do it
  3. There is a difficulty in replacing you

If one of these three is equal to zero, you may not make much money.

So what does this have to do with making videos? Well, in the huge interconnected world of the internet, you can create a need for what you do by showing it on video! Also, you can reach out to people having the need for your ability, as they can find you easily through your video. A video is more searchable on the search engines. Google in fact has a special section only for videos!

Anyone who sees your video will believe your ability faster. Since videos can’t be ‘ghost-written’, they are true and powerful! What’s important of course is for you to have some ‘ability’. Anything. You might know how to remove wine stains for example. Great! Make a video. Who knows that might start you off on a global laundry business. Do you have a dream?

As for the third point, the difficulty in replacing you, you can establish this with good service and relationship building. Again videos on ‘how-tos’ and ‘common questions’ will take care of this aspect – your video becomes the ‘hand-holder’ even while you are asleep.

Make it a point to title your videos intelligently. Titles are picked up by search engines. For instance, in the example above, I’d use the words ‘wine stain’, the ‘benefit’, and the ‘city’ I’m in so I can service the potential client. It develops into something like, “We remove wine stains and make stained clothes clean anywhere in Vancouver”. Now this title has a good chance of showing up on searches like ‘cleaning wine stains’, ‘stain removal in Vancouver’, ‘clothes cleaners in Vancouver’ etc. The keyword ‘stain’ used twice in a natural way scores more points with the search engine! Here’s more on how to find a good keyword .

Of course this is just the tip of the iceberg. You can learn Internet marketing from top professionals by watching a short video here . Happy to help!
