“The more that you experience you have before you get a professional video done, the more confidence you have.
In terms of the overall vision for the video, the question I always ask is, what do you want people to know when they finish watching the video and what do you want them to do?
Not every video has a strong call to action. Some are information-based, but some are, I want them to ring me. I want them, I want them to attend an event. I want them to book a ticket. I want them to book me, or it could be an awareness campaign where I want them to go tell a friend, or I want them to now know this piece of information and then work backwards from there.
So if you want them to share that information with a friend, are you going to do that through humour? Are you going to do that through fear? Are you going to do that through statistics? Are you going to do it through entertainment? Have that end goal.
And the other thing is you can only ask one thing from a video, not 20. So the video can’t be – going to go viral, entertaining, tell everyone there is to know about your business, share your life story and be quick and easy to watch on Instagram. That’s too much pressure on one video often do that.”
