Imagine you made a video and posted it online. Next thing you know, it is a very big hit and people can’t stop talking about it. If you are making a video to market a product or just become a celebrity online, you need to rate your video on a scale of 1-10. This step is very important because you need to actually see your video as the viewer and rate it as a critic. A boring video is easily forgettable, and the sad part is people might not even stick around to watch the ending.
A professional video marketer will tell you to always edit your video. This is even common in the movie production. When movies are shot, they can be up to three hours long. But once it is edited, it is cut down to an hour and thirty minutes. When you shoot a video, don’t automatically post it online. Always go over it and edit your video by cutting out the useless parts to make it a what I call “to the point” video. If you don’t have a video editing software, download windows movie maker.
When speaking in your video, make sure it is easy to understand. If you have a very rough accent, you can add subtitle’s.
When uploading your video on sites like YouTube, make sure your title is very catchy so people will check it out. If your promoting a product, don’t make your title a sales pitch because people will know it is another advertisement and they won’t click on it. Use your left side of the brain to turn on the creative thoughts and come up with a very professional title that people can’t pass by.
Adding a description and keywords is also very important. When adding your description, what you said in your video, put in the description box. For the keywords, choose the keywords that best suit your video. Don’t put a keyword that has nothing to do your video. Make sure the category is also right. If you make a music video, and put it in the category of educational, you might not get any views.
If you follow my tips above, you will have an easy time publishing and getting views. I am not saying you will get lots of views, that is all up to you. The most important part is your video. If your video is very educational and gives an answer to what people are looking for, than you will get lots of views on your video.
