YouTube Thursday - Remembering the Essentials for a Good Video

By

Remember the Essentials for Producing a Good Video 

 

 

First of all, we're assuming the video you want to produce will have good quality, good sound, and be produced using basic editing skills.

 

We've likely touched on these points before, but they bear repeating. Producing videos that get watched is key to their success. Otherwise, they can be monumental waste of valuable time.

 

The bottom line, what can you do to make your videos more entertaining while capturing your target-demographics? Here are the essentials

 

1. What is your secret weapon? The distinguishing trait that sets you apart from the competition.

2. Who is your audience? What appeals to them? 

3. Have a point - explain, entertain, tell a story -  (More on this next week) 

4. Authenticity. Let your power shine. Sense of humor, sincerity, passion...

5. Value. A call to action - why should they choose you? What should they do next? 

 

You want to engage, entertain, and encourage more interaction. 

 

YouTuber of the Week

 

This week we feature Kathy Streib's YouTube Channel. We absolutely love watching her funny take on things, like this one, "My Talking Mask."  Plus, her enjoyment of nature and husband, Larry's, committment to area wildlife make for fun short videos. 

 

Be sure to take a moment and subscribe.

 

Remember, you are welcome to share your own YouTube Channel in the comments below. And, it's always good form to return the favor when someone visits your channel and subscribes, likes a video, and/or leaves a comment.

Hi Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD - I will definitely check out Kathy Streib's channel after posting.  Thank you for the suggestion. 

Further note... I did check it out but couldn't leave a comment.  Short but it did make me laugh. It almost feels like she was a ventriloquist.  Note to Kathy, you should grab a puppet and do a quick ventriloquist take!

Barbara Todaro Admitedly, my background gives me an edge. But, I've seen fun and entertaining videos when someone is relaxed and authentic.

Hi Debb-It's funny I read this morning and I could have sworn I commented but obviously I didn't because I got sidetracked when I looked at your featured you tuber for the week. I hadn't subscribed to her channel before today. Thank you for the highlight and your essential list. Who know one day I might learn to do them and do them of my travels.

Good points Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD ! Video channels are like blog posting too. Regular productions to provide something worthwhile for the audience. It's best not do a video shoot - edit- upload and then with a long period before the next one. The audience needs to be fed, you the video maker needs the "practice makes perfect" in the dedication.

Hi Debb,
Great advice as always.  I believe playing to our uniqueness is a key factor. We all have it, don't we?
