Robert Scoble, the Scobleizer, shares five tips for better video blogging
Feb 20, 2008
I recently caught up with famed video blogger Robert Scoble, who shared his top five tips for video blogging.
One tip: Avoid starting a video like I did this one!
1- Be interesting (which is tough to define, but you’ll know it when you see it.)
2- Focus on a niche and own that niche: If you have separate topics of interest, consider running them on different blogs.
3- Slice and dice to make your videos searchable. Do only one topic per video.
4- Pay attention your shooting technique. The brightest thing in the room should be behind you. Audio matters a lot more than anything else you do. Use a tripod, if possible. That said, concentrate on doing good video content before obsessing over technical issues.
5- Keep it short. If you are doing longer videos, make sure to edit.
Further great tips at this posting/video I did with Cory Doctorow of Boing Boing.
