Video Interview Tips
If you want to make sure that your video marketing is perceived well, I have a very important message for you.
I have to admit that you’re not going to like it, but nobody ever got good results from taking the easy road.
You need to Practice and Learn your Script, learn what you’re going to say in your video production, before you get in front of the cameras, before you’re charged an hourly fee with a video production company, you need to practice and learn what you’re going to say.
Don’t just read it to your self and say yup done!! wrong Read your script out aloud
Print it out and pin it under a mirror or have someone hold the printed page or an iPad up at there eye height, then try to learn and speak your script without looking
Make it look natural
Nothing looks worse than a Stiff face talking to you on video
Think like you are talking to your best friend.
Look away a little as though your thinking of what to say
It makes a HUGE difference to your video.
And yes, in the world, there are few people out there that can speak entirely off the cuff and sound just as good. There are masterful corporate video presenters that sound pitch-perfect and can just roll with it. But if that’s not you – then please take our advice, and learn it, practice it, rehearse it, and make sure it sounds great!
Honestly a video takes a lot of effort to make and it would be a shame to let that effort down by not learning what you were going to say.
The way you will be perceived will improve, and so will the results of your video. Really here, we’re just trying to get above a certain bar, you don’t have to be amazing, but if you learn what you’re going to say, you won’t suck so much that people will just be thinking about how bad you were – we just need to get them to think about what you said, instead of how you said it.
Really, that’s all we’re asking for here.
