(...or how to save people's sanity)
What if you could help a large number of people by doing something fun, something you knew quite well...like showing them how to use that unused slurpie maker sitting idle above the cupboard? What if you could save people’s sanity by making their day a little easier & less stressful by demonstrating how to use the “Smart” TV that makes them feel stupid. Show a stranger how to take their first photo with the camera they got for Christmas. Maybe even show someone’s dad how to use that fancy mobile phone that frustrates the hell out of him.
Technology should be making life easier, but most people find it frustrating, challenging and far from easy. How many times have you bought a new product only to get it home and be faced with the task of learning how to use it? You’ve got better things to do and besides, do you really enjoy reading instruction manuals?
Have you returned a product simply because you didn’t find it easy enough to use or maybe you thought it was broken?
...and here’s a few more good incentives to get out your camera and start shooting a demonstration video. WhizBang will be awarding prizes for the best videos. You could win money, vouchers and a heap of other exciting awards (not to mention the recognition). We will also be introducing a tipping system so that your audience can show you just how much they appreciate your help. This is just the beginning, so be one of the first to get on board.
Generally, instructional videos are a lot easier to watch than to make, so we thought we’d give you a few pointers to get you off on the right track (so take our advice and learn the easy way!)
people these days have a short concentration span and do not view more than 2 minutes of a standard online video at one time. However, instructional videos do often need to be a little longer (even up to 4 minutes). Try to keep it quick and to the point. Definitely don’t ramble, but try to be concise and to the point. If it becomes too long, break the video down into shorter parts. E.g. Instead of showing how to set up a cordless phone and make a call, break it down into 2 videos - (1) setup and (2) make a call. keep the pace relatively quick and avoid talking too slowly (but ensure you speak clearly).
People love tips, so don’t be afraid to add your own advice or suggestions you’ve acquired through experience.
