Do you record videos of your talks, presentations or demos? Videos can be a great way to spread your message, while building your credibility and experience.
The tips in this post should save you lots of time, because I’ve refined them over about the last 5 years. (And my most popular YouTube video currently has over 100,000 views and 120+ likes.)
You can use the tips (as I have, too) for all these types of videos, and more:
- Slides being presented by a speaker
- Someone talking directly to camera – often called a talking head
- Demos of how to do something (like use software) – often called explainer videos
The names of the 6 tips form an acronym (“ASPECT”) which I hope’ll help you to recall the tips, and also to be systematic when you approach your video-based projects.
