Film horizontally: This is required for the OTT platform
Let people know who you are: Include your name and the video title at the start of the video, and your website and social channels at the end.
Let your audience know what supplied they need: list the supplies used (if you are submitting a tutorial)
Plan ahead: Before hitting the record button, make a plan of what you want to shoot. This will save you time, make the process smoother, and ensure that you capture the most important moments.
Use good lighting: Lighting is crucial in making your videos look professional and high-quality. Whether it’s natural light or artificial, make sure it’s sufficient and placed in the right position.
Invest in a quality microphone: Audio is just as important as video, so investing in a good microphone will make a big difference in your final product. It will also save you time in post-production.
Keep it short and sweet: Attention spans are getting shorter, so try to keep your videos concise and to the point. This will also help with engagement and retention.
Use a variety of shot types: Mix up your shots with close-ups, wide shots, and different angles. This will create a more visually interesting video and keep the viewer engaged.
Edit with purpose: Editing is where the magic happens. Don’t be afraid to cut out footage that doesn’t serve a purpose and use transitions to keep the flow smooth.
Be consistent: Consistency is key. Make a schedule and stick to it. This will help build a loyal audience who knows when to expect your content.
Engage with your audience: Interact with your audience in the comments section and on social media. This will create a sense of community and show that you care about their opinions.

How do I make money?
