Part of the beauty of video is that you get to express yourself and convey messages without having to be restricted by traditional forms and structures that writing tends to impose. All you have to do is talk when a camera is recording.
Everyone goes at this in (at least) a slightly different way. Certain habits like talking on and on without showing respect for your viewers time or just giving information without any story behind it can be make your videos boring and not attract the interest of the people you want to reach. Know that you are a unique individual who is perfectly capable and well-suited for delivering life-changing results to the individuals who will most appreciate what you have to offer.
Here are three tips on how to be more effective when beginning to make videos:
Even if you are sure that many people know more than you about what you are saying, talk about it anyway. You might be the one person that certain viewers will relate to and only you will be able to get through to them.
Start by keeping your videos short and sweet. Just say what you mean as simply as possible. Attention spans are very short, use that to your advantage.
Paint pictures with your words and you will have to do less filming and editing later. The more you can get people to imagine, the better you will be remembered (and the more they will take away from watching your videos.)
Making videos is something that just about anyone can do. Most people do not do it because they either fear that they do not have anything worthwhile to contribute or they are worried that they do not have the tools to do it well. By making short, simple videos that use words to describe what you want people to see in their minds (in the case of video marketing; the good result they will get by doing business with you) you can be successful at helping other people as only you can.
