  • I have come to realize that not everyone is a natural Internet reader. The Web is great place for people like myself that like to scan tons of text to learn about new stuff. But for a lot of people, they’d much rather spend their time watching Youtube. This is why I think there’s tons of potential to reach a whole new segment of the population with video blogging and video tutorials.

    Some tips for making great videos:

    1. Invest in a high quality webcam and mic – it makes all the difference when people can actually hear what you’re saying and the picture doesn’t look like an acid trip

    2. Use subtitles to reinforce important information, and use shadowing or glows to make the text more readable.

    3. Use music with no lyrics to set the tone and provide some ambiance to the video. Music is subconsciously devoured, and is very powerful.

    4. Edit out long pauses, ‘mistakes’, answering the phone etc. It also helps to keep intros and non-vital portions of the video to a shortened length, as most people will find these portions more annoying than anything.
