Pro TIPS When Filming

  1. Once you’ve built your Topic Wheel with at least 3 topics and 3 people each for you to interview, it’s time to seed your Content Library with videos that you create.
  2. Start by listing out questions that you can answer in one minute. 60 seconds isn’t long, so choose topics you can properly cover in that time-frame.
  3. Avoid being too ambitious — break bigger topics into smaller chunks. Your audience prefers to consume many small tidbits versus sitting through a full hour of you talking, especially with 80% of these being consumed on their phones.
  4. If you have an iPhone, use the notes app to keep track of these topics and continue to add, as thoughts pop up. You can use a daily planner or whatever ts with your way of organizing your time.
  5. When you’re ready to lm, make sure you have a well-lit location. You don’t need fancy equipment, but having a pro set up doesn’t hurt. Just don’t let an apparent need for pro equipment stop you from making videos.
  6. Avoid using profanity if you’re planning on uploading to Facebook since the usage of profanity is against Facebook’s guidelines.
