A video that only shows you speaking about a financial topic can get boring. This is why I suggest you add some visual elements.
One way to boost your visual appeal to use a whiteboard, as Paddy Hirsch does. I discovered his video through a tweet by Cathy Curtis of Curtis Financial. Hirsch is senior editor for the Marketplace radio show.
Here’s the link: Fiscal and Monetary Policy.
If you try a whiteboard video, remember to
- Use a microphone that will record you even when you’re facing away from the camera
- Face the camera as often as possible
- Add diagrams or drawings to enliven your whiteboard notes–Love that drawing of Ben Bernanke!
If you’ve ever tried a whiteboard video, I’d like to learn about your experience.
