Let’s Create a Quick How to Video
A lot of readers will end up on your site looking for answers to questions or techniques to complete something.
Even though you think you have done a good job in providing a technique – some people will still struggle to digest the information ( human nature I’m afraid! ).
When I was going through my internet marketing training at the WA I always found the video tutorials much easier to follow and to digest. I never felt overwhelmed when I was learning through them – I guess I’m just a little more visual with my learning!
But many of your visitors will be the same as me – they will prefer to ‘see’ the answer to their query and digest it that way.
How to Create The Video
- Always write a little bullet point script or outline before you attempt to record the video. It will make things much easier for you and you won’t drift off topic to often
- Don’t turn into a Steven Spielberg and get all fussy – shoot the video in one take. If you make a mistake, wait a couple of seconds and re-read the line again. Editing comes later
- Simply trim ( edit ) the space and the mistakes within your video – cut dead parts at the beginning and the end
Don’t worry about paying out bucks for video software – this article is aimed at using FREE options ( yippee! ).
Luckily enough my 9 year old son introduced me to a few awesome video capture options he uses to record Minecraft videos. Check em’ out below:
Out of the three above I would recommend trying out Bandicam first – I haven’t encountered any issues with it so far!
You can either capture your voice along with the video recording ( easiest option ) or you can overdub it through editing software later ( harder but more professional ).
For editing I would recommend the non-commercial ( free ) version of VideoPad. This is an awesome drag and drop editor that is geared towards newbies and comes with a great selection of plugin effects.
Start off small and build on your creativity as you become more and more confident. The first couple of blog post videos I created were absolute garbage but they got the message across.
Get out there and get creative!
