How To Make a Great Promo Video

People want to be informed quickly. We are now in the days of information and technology, which means whether you’re asking for donations or sharing an interesting tid bit you’ve personally discovered, people want to know about it in two minutes or less.

A lot of entrepreneurs have become hip to this knowledge and have decided to make promotional videos to create popularity for their brands. Videos raise awareness as well as funds. They can bring in an audience or turn them away. Look below at the best ways to make a promotional video.

Location Location Location!

Where you are in your video makes a huge impact for your viewers. Where you appear, or the people you have cast appear, gives viewers a place to look at while they are listening to your information. It puts a place to a product or a scene to a circumstance. Images are sometimes easier to remember than words. Whether you are live outside or you draw a backdrop, make sure it flows with your message and relates to your targeted audience.

Cut The Time!

Think about yourself when you’re watching videos you’ve come across on social media during your downtime. Would you watch a video longer than 5 minutes? What about 3 minutes? Many people wouldn’t watch a video past 1 minute unless they are truly interested in the information.

Make it Count!

Don’t give people a reason to skip past your video, give them a reason to press play. Record everything you want to say about your product or service. Make it as long as you want. Afterward, use your favorite editing software and cut the lag time in between your sentences as well as any repeated information you notice throughout your promo.

 
Here’s your homework!

Take a look at the promotional video below. What works? What could be different? How would you have approached this video? Let us know! Share your thoughts! We all are here to listen, learn, and educate.

How to Avoid The Most People Mentality

It can be very simple to use the "most people mentality" to justify your current state of being. It's a trap we tend to fall into when the time comes to explain why we did not excel in an area knowing it was fully in our capability to do so. It's common. It's comforting. Sitting with the "most people hat" on allows you to think that because most people do not excel, it is alright for you not to do so either.

Today is the day where we relieve ourselves from the "most people epidemic". As simple as it is to fall in, we are going to give you some tips to climb out of this mentality.

Tip 1: Take Pride In Your Work
No one can do what you do how you do it. That's why you do what you do! Treat every tasks as if quitting is never an option. Think of all the people who will need you to finish what you started before you think about not dedicating yourself to your work.

Tip 2: Stay Focused
Focus your mind on what you want to find. Implement that work ethic into focusing your thoughts toward your end goal. Most people let distractions distract them from their purpose in life. Remember, you are not most people. You have the ability to keep facing forward. 

Tip 3: Improve From Feedback
Allow people you trust to give their input on your projects. Growing comes from trial, error, research and responses. If people give you feedback accept it, process it, and disect it, because those are the people that care about you. 

Overall, most people let things stop them from winning every day. You can avoid being most people by working hard, staying focused, and growing from experiences.

Take these tips, save them, and reflect on them whenever you have to do something that you know most people would never dream to do.

It's a good thing you're not most people. It's a good thing you dare to dream.

You Can Be The Next Marques Brownlee!

Marques Brownlee (also known as MKBHD) began making videos in 2009 diving deep into technology, gadgets, and more. At only 23 years old he has created the 3rd most subscribed YouTube channel for technology. 

This charismatic video journalist posted the following video on October 27th, 2016 and in under a week it already has over 1 million views! He is so highly respected in the field of technology that the senior vice president of software engineering for Apple, Craig Federighi, has no problem giving Marques a one on one video highlighting Apple’s newest MacBook Pro.
 

Watching this video you see two men communicating with one another about computers. After you absorb the technology lingo and goofy jokes, you can really begin to appreciate Marques’ passion and appreciation for technology. The pure joy he has while conducting this interview is something that is achievable for people younger and older than he is now.

You can be great! We have the technology! Before the days of YouTube, we were excited if our names were mentioned in the Sunday paper for fundraising money for your school’s AV club. Now, we have more options than ever conceivable. We can promote our intelligent and dreams for literally the World Wide Web to enjoy and learn from.

You have a passion. You have a subject that you research daily and have so much information to share pertaining to it. Marques started off small and is now one of the most respected men on the Internet. Nobody but you is stopping you from being in his shoes (or on his screen). Don’t be afraid to share with the world what you know. You never know who you could meet in the process of discovering yourself.
