The Challenges of Getting Started with Video

Video can be intimidating, but don’t let these challenges hold you back and stop you from progressing.

You’ll be walking the plank if you can’t create a simple video.

A Few Challenges I’ve heard over the years of coaching video podcasts.

1. Lack of time:

Carving out time to create and watch videos can be tricky, but remember that videos can be paused, watched conveniently, or shared with others.

2. Lack of privacy:

Some people may feel uncomfortable being on camera. Start practicing privately, or consider using animations or whiteboard videos.

It’s challenging to sell if you can’t be seen.

And you don’t have to BE on camera.

3. Technical hurdles:

Video production may seem daunting, but you can create professional-looking videos with the right tools and guidance.

You can start practicing with your phone.

Considerations and What You Need to Know about Creating Video

Before hitting the record button, keep these tips in mind:

1. Cater to your audience: 

Identify your target audience and align your video content with their preferences and business goals.

The video is not about you. It’s about the community you serve.

Always add value.

2. Choose the suitable delivery platforms:

Select popular platforms among your target audience and consider each platform’s requirements.

Not every platform is created equal, so develop with the format in mind.

3. Create an appropriate visual style:

Your video’s visual style should reflect your brand and resonate with your audience. Create something in alignment with your brand so people know who they are dealing with.

4. Control the pace of your edit:

Keep your video engaging by maintaining a steady pace and avoiding long, drawn-out scenes.

I’m guilty of rambling and have to remind myself to keep improving.

Every skill is improved with practice.

5. Remember sound:

Audio quality is crucial, so invest in a good microphone and consider adding background music or sound effects if it fits the brand.

Again, share the value and continue building on your brand’s delivery.

How to Use Video for Your Content Creation Efforts

Unleash your creativity with these video ideas:

1. Whiteboard videos:

Engage your audience with hand-drawn or animated illustrations that educate viewers on a specific topic.

If your brand can use explainer videos, then use them wisely.

2. Tips, tricks, and how-to videos: 

Share valuable advice and shortcuts to establish your expertise and build brand trust.

The goal is to create content worthy of having others share it.

3. Behind-the-scenes: 

Offer exclusive insights into your business, events, or campaigns to create a sense of connection with your audience.

Develop relationships, create community, and nurture engagement at every chance.

Develop your fan base. (Like a Pirate)
