Vlogging is a term derived from the words video and blog. It’s basically a blog but in video form. In fact, vlogging is the most recognizable form of Tampa video production right now. Ask anyone if they have watched a vlog and they’ll most probably answer yes. Some may have even tried making a vlog whether for professional or personal consumption.
But making a vlog isn’t just about how interesting you are and how technically sound your video is. There is more to vlogs than meets the eye. You have to know what your audience wants, as well as how to deliver that to them. If you are making your very first vlog right now, here are some tips that you should follow:
Manage Your Nerves
Assuming that you already have a topic in mind, the next thing that you have to make sure of is to manage your nerves. You need plenty of days between today and the actual filming to practice. That’s going to be your best friend in making sure you look and sound confident for your first vlog. You should never stumble your words because that will leave them confused. They will focus on your awkwardness rather than on your message.
It’s hard to be someone else you’re not even in vlogging. You need to be consistent. Your audience needs consistency as they want to know what and who they’re going to hear and see when they tune in to your vlog. Every video has a personality. What is yours? For vloggers, their own personalities will shine through on these videos. You have to be yourself, so you won’t have to pretend every time you face the camera. If you’re cheerful, then be that. If you’re a little stoic and formal, then be that, too. Your audience will appreciate the honesty.
Pick the Right Spot
Your background will set the tone of your blog. Unless you are a travel writer, chances are that you are going to have the same background or backdrop every time you make a vlog. Make sure that the location has loads of natural light. You should also ensure that it’s a nice and quiet place where there’ll be no dogs barking in the background. This is important for the clarity of your vlog.
You can always call a Tampa video production company to help you make a vlog. They will know exactly how to help you come up with the right angle, backdrop, and even theme.
