“Analyse your audience way before you launch your video campaign. Does adding certain emotional flavours hook your audience? Can your product be connected with a social cause? Answers to some of these questions will help you create an entertaining video that sells your brand.”
Today we'll help you with some pro tips to avoid certain mistakes during video production and at the same time help you build your brand with the help of correct video tactics.
Let's get started!
1. Not properly planning the video scripts
No video can do well without having a proper script. This means planning the script for the video is of utmost importance as it will help you pre-plan the shoot venue and the talents who are the right fit for the job.
Not planning the video scripts is a common mistake done by many producers and video directors which leads to the failure of their videos after production. This is because the unnatural tone used in the video looks imposed and at the same time words get fumbled which is not the right approach in video production.
2. Not being useful to your audience
Do not assume that your audience will automatically love the video you're creating. Your audience needs to get value out of the video and that value can only be achieved through planning.
If you're planning to produce a video, you must also plan the content. This will keep them engaged (your audience) and they'll be more likely to share it.
3. Missing “OUT OF THE BOX” thinking
Only a few have the skill to stand up and think of something unique and extraordinary. This is out of box thinking. The value created in videos can be created through creative thinking. This creative thinking is responsible for taking the video to the next level. Make sure that the content in the video isn't boring but is of value to the viewers which will help keep them engaged.
4. Usage of bad lighting
Lighting is also the major factor that can make or break the engagement level. Using proper lighting is important as it empathises each shot. To set up a lighting procedure, you'll need the help of a professional.
5. Shaky and non-stabilised footage
Would you like to watch a shaky video? Probably not. Unfortunately, there isn't a shortage of shaky, unprofessional content in the video industry. There are many appropriate tools you can use to ensure your video looks crisp and professional.
Go get 'em!
To avoid these mistakes, make sure you seek professional help in the initial stage of production.
Also, don't forget to make use of a call to action at the end of the video. Why? Because a call to action is the message that you want your audience to hear and hence the necessary action will be taken by them.
