Before beginning any video, plan out what you are going to say to your viewers. Most video marketers say that if you can develop your introduction and closing of a video, the rest of the video will go smoothly. Begin any video by introducing yourself and your company. End each video with a call to action to visit your website.

You need to include a friendly greeting with each customer engagement. Let them know about you and your business at the start. You need to also make sure you restate your business information in a positive tone at the end of your video. Use a voice over if you are self-conscious about being seen in your video. You may be scared to have your face in the video. If you don’t want to be onscreen, try giving a product demonstration and narrating it off camera. To do this, record yourself speaking the key points or narrative details, then edit it over a shot of the product or action.

Are there any myths about your field or company or products? It’s time to debunk them! Use your video to re-enact the myths in a humorous manner and then tell the truth about the fact in question. Your viewers will enjoy it enough to share it with others on their social media friend lists.

Use your videos to ask your customers a question. You can ask them how to better your products, or how your services could be improved, or even how to fix your website to make it the best online. Post their response videos and use them to do what they recommend, if applicable. It is a good idea to keep subscribed to newsletters and forums that will help you stay current with what is trending. It’s easy to get caught up in what you’re doing and think you know enough when things are working. However, rules and strategies are constantly changing, so stay up to date.

Plan your video first. Don’t just throw together a video. Remember that you want your video to be professional, and that you want to show your customers a polished look. To do this, you need to get a plan in place first. Plan what you will film, as well as what you will say.
