If ever there was a time to start getting some video content on your blog it would definitely be now. Not only are videos the preferred type of content nowadays, but they can also be distributed through numerous platforms – including social media.
However while it is important to create video content, it is also important that the video content you create is effective. The last thing you want is to spend time creating content that doesn’t perform well – which is why you should try out the following tips:
1. Keep the introduction short
The last thing people want when they start to watch a video is a long and rambling introduction. Ideally, your introduction should focus on the topic of the video, and outline how it will be beneficial to the audience to keep on watching.
2. Tell a (relevant) story
One of the most-effective ways to attract the interest of the audience is to tell a story – but it needs to be relevant. Ideally the story should connect directly to the topic of your video, and can act as an introduction the useful information it contains.
3. Show some personality
The nice thing about videos is it is a lot easier to let your personality shine through. Even if you don’t appear on camera, the voiceover and design of your video should provide you with room to entertain and engage the audience on the strength of your personality.
4. Take advantage of the visuals
Part of the reason why videos are so effective is the fact that they are visual and so you can ‘show’ the audience what you’re talking about in the voiceover. Be sure to take advantage of that as much as possible.
5. Plan the video
Before you actually create any video content – plan it first. By taking a few minutes to jot down the scenes of the video, what elements should appear in each scene and what the voiceover should be saying – your video should be much more structured.
