Five tips to creating a great video:

  1. Be professional.
    • Pay attention to lighting and audio quality!
  2. Be concise.
    • 50 percent of viewers tune out after 3 minutes.
  3. Know your audience.
    • Drop the jargon and make it relevant and easy to understand.
  4. Be entertaining.
    • Use humor, a quick pace, and creative production.
    • Take advantage of what’s around you: white board drawings do well, so do videos shot in the lab or other interesting settings.
  5. Be unique.
    • Videos about surprising and quirky facts are popular.
    • Come up with a great title.
      • Accurately convey the video’s content.
      • Lists and questions tend to do well.
