Tips to Make Your Video Rock
Camera with a microphone? Check. Adequate lighting? Check. Game face? Check! Here are some other ways to help make your video stand out:
Cover the basics
Try to answer the following questions in your video:
- What’s the name of the product or service?
- What does it do?
- How did you come up with the idea?
- Who are your customers?
- What will you do with the seed money if you win?
Keep it short
Do something imaginative. Crack a joke. Add a soundtrack or jingle. Create a tagline for your company. Get your friends, family, even Fido involved; just make sure you have their permission!
Show your business in action
Do you have a product? We want to see it. Is it a service? Give us a demonstration. Do you have an office or employees? That might be interesting to show, too. Voters prefer to get a real sense of your business, not just a video of you talking about it.
Even Hollywood actors rarely get it right the first time. Rehearse your script or pitch at least a few times before you hit “record.”
