I would like to think you've already started creating your own videos as part of the way forward with your online income because video really is the moving force online these days with more people searching on YouTube than all the other search engines bar Google itself.
So some tips on creating your videos today:
Actually these tips relate to the audio part of the video because that is where most people come unstuck.
Whether you're using Camtasia or Windows Movie Maker for PC, or FlowPlayer, Camtasia for MAC, or iMovie with your MAC you will either be using the audio capture that comes with the software or the free Audacity software.
All of them allow you to slice the audio and take out the mistakes that you will invariably make but the less time 'getting your audio fixed' the better, because that will allow you to create more videos rather than spending the time fixing stuff.
When you first start doing this, it's better to create short videos so any 'repair' work will take less time because you're working in a shorter time frame.
It's a lot easier to fix problems in small clips rather than try to edit a 1/2 hour audio and the reason for this is because you will have to go through the whole 1/2 hour to see what needs fixing, edit the pieces along the way and then go back through it again making sure that the completed audio is as it should be.
You will waste a considerable amount of time going over the portions of the audio that don't need fixing each time you do this.
A better solution is to create small videos/audio of a few minutes.
The ones that don't need editing (and there will be a lot more of these the more you practice) will be put aside and you only work on the videos where there is editing needed for the audio files.
This saves a lot of time and once the edited ones have been completed they can all be combined together with or without suitable transitions.
At that stage you will only need to go through the completed video in total once to check whether there are any minor tweaks that are necessary.
Another technique I use when recording training is to keep the momentum with my speaking - if I make a mistake I will leave a short space in the audio and then repeat that same passage of text in the same tone and volume but in the correct manner and then it becomes easy to simply edit out the error leaving in the new audio that will sound like I never stopped the flow of talking.
If something happens when you're recording (like when my cat comes under my seat and starts 'talking' to me) I simply repeat what I have said, once again like nothing had happened, and then edit out the portion where I was disrupted.
This ensures my voice sounds the same in the whole of the video.
If you do have an audio section that sounds a little different because it was recorded at a different time or you got distracted in some way when recording the different sections, use transitions to move from one clip to another and that short time delay when the transition occurs will make it look a lot more professional.
