Create Professional Looking Videos Without A Camera
This might sound strange, but you can make professional videos without even using a video camera. There are a number of possibilities, and ReelSEO highlights three of them
1 Video Editing Idea – Screenshot Slideshows Set To Music
Suppose you have a blog about gaming and you want to share screenshots from Halo 3 on the Xbox 360. By compiling pics into a collection and putting your favorite (legally obtained) music in the background you add entertainment value to the pics and show a little creativity in how you arrange everything. It’s not rocket science by any means, but depending on your niche it can be a great value added widget that others will want to add to their site. That means more exposure for you! Splashcast will even allow you to display photos directly from Flickr in your show!
2 Video Idea Production– RSS Aggregation
Let’s stay with our example of running a Halo 3 related website. So in addition to screenshots maybe my prospective audience is interested in certain game & tech related podcasts as well. To add value for my readers, I can combine several podcast feeds into my video production player so that site visitors can enjoy video and audio podcasts related to gaming (or whatever you want) all through the same portal (your site!). For example, if I add RSS feeds for both a video and audio podcast, shows will automatically become available in the Spashcast player when they are published. Think of this like building your own radio or television channel. You can basically put all your favorite shows on the same channel. Think about your niche and how you can add value by aggregating good content!
3 Video Editing Idea – Screencasting
Screen casting is basically a video capture of whatever is taking place on your screen at a given time. You can use it to inform, motivate, and entertain (amongst other things). You’ll need special software for this although there are free alternatives out there. If you’re really serious about this medium, Camtasia Studio from Techsmith is the only way to go in my opinion. Screencasting a great way to make professional videos that can demonstrate what type of expertise you can offer and questions you can answer on your site. Even if you’re not an expert, you likely know enough to teach a beginner to your niche a great deal!
