This week’s episode is all about smartphone video marketing. I’m joined by Daryl Cygler, founder of Smartphone Video Marketing, the business that teaches SMB owners how to start and scale their video marketing efforts without the need for video production companies and expensive film equipment.
As technology is evolving our capability to create content has increased massively. All you need is a smartphone nowadays. When filming, you should always be giving the perception of professionalism meaning that your videos should be high quality. This does mean that you will have to invest in some affordable equipment and keep some factors in mind.
Want to improve your smartphone video marketing?
Some of the ways you can raise your smartphone video marketing production to the next level:
- Stabilising your shots through using a tripod
- Making sure your audio is clear by using a mic
- Ensuring that there is enough light behind the camera facing the subject being recorded
You need to make sure your shots are as stable as they can possibly be. The second element is audio. This is just as important as the quality of the video. Using a mic will mean that everything you say will be picked up clearly and there should be limited background noise. Lighting is so important when it comes to filming. Having either natural light or artificial light in front of the subject, behind the camera, will ensure that everything shows up clearly when recording. Understanding these layers of perception and quality, and combining those two together, will mean you should have a really slick production.
We go on to speak about some of the starting points and ideas for SMB’s that want to create video content. You want to tell a visual story in a professional way. This means keeping things simple and creating authentic content that resonates with your audience.
I hope you all stay safe. Enjoy the episode!
