Nowadays, vlogging (video blogging) is a popular medium that is seeing more use in information dissemination. From makeup tutorials, cooking lessons, DIY instructionals and more, it’s easier and much more reassuring for the generation of today to have clear visuals on such tasks.
So you may be asking yourself, 'How can I be a better vlogger?' Here are a few tips on how you can implement and improve your video content:
It's as simple as googling prominent vlogger sites on the net and doing a bit of research on what they do. Take cues on their styles, how they speak and what type of techniques they use to make their content entertaining. This will allow you to get ideas that can build up your personal brand of vlog content.
In this type of business, high quality footage makes for a good number of views. In order to obtain that high quality video, good equipment is needed. From cameras to tripods, you’ll might need to spend a bit to get the results you want. But don’t just go wild with your check book! Expensive equipment doesn’t equate to quality equipment.
It’s not just the hardware that needs to be fine tuned. Software and editing skills are needed in order to make the digital content itself easier on the eyes. You’ll need to give your footage some eye-catching graphics, easy-to-read typography, fitting background music, an informative outro, and a catchy intro.
A creative eye is also needed to make visually appealing footage. From color theory to the type of font and clipart you put in the video, everything has to fit the tone of your content and the type of people your videos are aimed at. Don’t forget to give it your signature style and individuality.
There’s a difference between a personality that panders and a personality that stays true to yourself. It’s possible to do both at the same time, but it takes a bit of a balancing act to get it right. Try to mix as much of your real personality into your videos while also appealing to your fans and what they react positively to.
And that’s all you’ll need to know on how to start vlogging! Your dedication and attention to details will be the deciding factor as to how far your videos will go. Just make sure you observe your video comments and experiment on what works well for both you and the people watching as well in order to stay relevant and improve for the future.
