Getting Started With Video Blogging

Video blogging is the new wave of posting ideas and products on the internet. Videos are now used as a better form of expression. This form can be a little intense, but it is also very much worth it! Pictures may say a thousand words, so as you might think, video blogging will say far more than 1000 words!

A video blog requires some technical enhancement that regular blogs don’t need such as larger disk spaces on websites, a faster server, and whatever programming you need to support it. Video blogs can RSS feeds. This is a way of syndicating your website to other RSS aggregators.

Video blogging works with people on the internet expressing themselves. Think of it as a most powerful way in to show your prospective customers what it is exactly that you have to offer. It’s much like commercial, but it’s all for free. And by video blogging through RSS, then you stand a good chance of getting at your target market.

It is the Internet’s version of walking into a store to actually see what they might like to buy. Some would like to see proof and be sure that they are getting their money’s worth before ponying up their hard earned money on it. You all know the influence of a thirty second commercial. The effect of video blogging is very similar to that. You show your product and people watch it. If they like it, they buy it. If you show your product well enough, you can get people to buy the product even if they don’t need it.

Now on the web, things are pretty much static, unlike in television in things are pretty much always moving. If you post something that is moves, it is more likely catch someones attention. You’ll get orders in no time, whether they be through phone or on the Internet.

If you are just starting your business, you can create a video blog right in the privacy of your own home. All you need is an appropriate camera, microphone, video software, and lights. And you don’t need the best of everything, for as long as you know how to use your camera, you can create a good looking video blog.

Invest in the best web camera possible for you. The higher the cameras resolution is, the better the output. Even though anyone who sees your video may not be looking at it on the newest or most technologically advanced screens, you should present your videos in a way that gets the best results. Make a short story, or just capture your goods in one go. Just make sure you are getting the best profile for each. Get those creative juices flowing.

Lighting is important in a production. Make sure you illuminate entirely the area you are going to use to create video blog. The better the light, the crisper the images will be. You can also use different lighting effects to add appeal to your presentation. You’ll also want to use sounds or your voice for your video blog, so you will most likely need a microphone. Record your (or someone else’s voice for that matter) voiceover for your product promotion. Sound is as important as videos on your video blog. You should make your sound effects as nice as you make the video.

Your will also need a video editing program and this really can be can be any program as there are a number of good ones out there. You need this software to finalize your work. You can add sounds, delete some bad angles, or insert some still pictures in there if it adds value. Some programs are user-friendly and can be used even with zero knowledge on video editing. Select your background carefully too. The light affects the presentation so make sure that the background and the light complements each other.

Video blogging is a great tool but as it is with most things, it also has a downside. It can slow down the computer, or just be to big a file for their Internet connection. Download time can also be slow especially if customer is still on a dial- up connection (they are still out there). You just need to figure out where your target market is with their technology, and then just consider about not worrying about the rest as they are not likely to be interested in your stuff anyway.

Don’t let any of this stop you. Let video blogging be an alternative for you, though it is best to still keep the text and pictures present in your presentation to accommodate all possible viewers of your site.

Nowadays, you have to stand out, or apart from the crowd so the more creative you are in presenting your product to the market, the more likely you are to succeed. Video blogging offers an interactive way of selling. You involve the customers. You instill in them the advantage of your goods.
