Here are 3 tips for making the perfect how-to video

  • Decide the topic

    Decide the topic

    There are a wide range of ideas on which you can make a how-to video, but you have to do your research to keep your videos specific. To decide the topic, look at the subjects that interest you; if you already have an expertise in that, then that can be a great choice to go ahead. You can also pull some cues from what people are searching, what is trending or what your competitors are doing.

  • Decide the topic
  • Prepare a script

    Prepare a script

    It’s always a great idea to script your how-to video before you start recording. It will help you decide how you want to start your video, what are the steps you want to cover, where you want plug-in a little humour element - everything will build the blueprint for your video. Once you have these points, you can practice, record your video and even trying something impromptu because now you have a clear idea of what you want to share with your audience.

  • Prepare a script
  • Use an editor

    Use an editor

    Editing your videos is like polishing your shoe; you want to make it neat and shiny so that it’s more presentable. Your content must be good, but you might want to cut-out the awkward pauses, background noise or crop the unwanted parts before you publish your video. It doesn’t matter whether you’re using a in-built editor or a separate tool, a few nicks here and there might be necessary.
