Influencer News Update:
- How to Create High-Quality Video Content on a Budget Article by Lilach Bullock via Social Media Today
- First, you will want to create a video strategy.
- Some of the most important aspects of a video strategy include:
- The available budget for video content
- Ideal social media audience
- Objectives for sharing videos on social media
- The frequency of sharing videos
- What kinds of videos you will need to create based on set objectives
- Use an effective video maker/editing tool.
- For simple social media videos, you can use something like adobe spark.
- Canva, an app that we have discussed on the Influence Factory before, has now allowed for animated social media content.
- Adobe Premiere Pro is another good one for high-quality video editing
- If you are on a Mac, you can use iMovie (FREE)
- If you are on a Mac and are looking for more tools and capabilities, you can use Final Cut Pro.
- A tool like Promo.com provides a huge video template library that you can edit to make social media videos for your brand.
- VidMob aims to help businesses scale their video marketing operations by facilitating contact with various experts that can help you create videos
- Invest in the basics: the video gear you need
- Digital Camera – to allow for high-quality video
- Microphone – most built-in microphones do not deliver a high enough quality sound to properly represent a brand.
- Tripod – allows you to stabilize your camera when filming
- Lighting kit – to make sure you have good lighting in your shot that is consistent.
- Use your smartphone to shoot videos
- Most smartphones take great videos. These videos are perfect for sharing on social. Probably not enough quality for creating promotional and marketing videos, but still good social media quality.
- If you are on an iPhone, you can use iMovie to edit your videos. You can also use a third-party app, like Filmora.
- Keep things simple
- No one is expecting James Cameron-like production quality on social media videos. Most people just want a video that provides them with some value and looks good.
- You do not need Hollywood-level quality.
- Keep your videos short
- Most people on social media do not have the patience or the attention span to watch a video that exceeds 2-minutes in length.
- Once your video surpasses that 2-minute threshold, you will see video engagement drop exponentially.
