How to Create Engaging Short Form Videos

September 11, 2023

Unleash your potential with engaging short-form videos and conquer social media.

back to blog home

Hey there, fellow entrepreneurs! Let’s dive into another episode of The Unfiltered Entrepreneur. I’m your host, Ashley Pollard, and today we’re diving deep into the world of short-form video content. I get it – the thought of creating these videos might seem daunting, but I’m here to tell you that it’s easier than you think and absolutely worth your time.

The Power of Short-Form Video

In a world dominated by social media algorithms, video content is your golden ticket to reaching more people. The great news? You don’t need to be a professional videographer or look perfect on camera. I mean, look at me – I’m keeping it real, and that’s what viewers appreciate.

Quick Tip: Learn the Basics

Before you dive into content creation, familiarize yourself with the platform’s features. Create test content to learn where the buttons are – trust me, it’ll save you from awkward moments later.

Case Studies with a Twist: Green Screen Magic

One of my favorite ways to make an impact is by using green screen technology to present case studies. It’s as simple as screenshotting an image, applying the green screen filter, and voila – you’re standing in front of it, explaining and engaging your audience.

Break It Down: The Three-Step Process

Break down complex topics into easy-to-digest, three to five-step processes. You can create a single video with all the steps or split them into multiple videos for a content-rich week.

This or That: A Versatile Approach

Harness the power of “this or that” scenarios. Whether it’s showcasing transformations or offering quirky choices, this approach is engaging and fun for your audience.

Hook ‘Em with “Did You Know”

Begin your videos with a hook like, “Did you know that you can actually…?” Then provide valuable insights or tips. It’s a surefire way to keep your viewers intrigued.

B-Roll and Tips: A Winning Combo

Record B-roll footage of you in action, add text with valuable tips, and you’ve got yourself an engaging short-form video that resonates with your audience.

Consistency Over Perfection

Remember, social media is all about consistency. You don’t need to overthink or aim for perfection with every post. Just be yourself and connect with your audience honestly.

Quantity Matters

To gain traction, aim to create 20 videos each month, each lasting eight seconds or less. It’s not about creating life-altering content every time; it’s about maintaining a presence and building your brand.

Don’t Fear Social Media

If you’re hesitant about social media, remember that building a strong online presence can be a game-changer for your business. Learning how to pitch and connecting with potential clients is vital in today’s digital age.

Honest Connection Trumps All

In the era of authenticity, raw, genuine connections are what resonate most. Don’t get caught up in over-editing; just share your thoughts and experiences – your audience will appreciate it.

The Takeaway

So, there you have it – a guide to conquering short-form video content. Whether you’re a seasoned content creator or just starting, remember that consistency and genuine connection are the keys to success. Don’t wait for the perfect moment; start creating and let the momentum build.

As always, I’m here to help you navigate the world of entrepreneurship. Stay tuned for more valuable insights in our upcoming episodes. Now, go out there, hit record, and make your mark on the world of short-form video!
