Creators Guide For Beginners

Creating videos is a great way to share your thoughts, ideas, and passions with the world. If you’re new to video creation, this guide will help you get started. Creating videos, editing them, uploading them to various platforms, and getting engagement for them are all that a video creator does. 

So, where does it all start?

Is it from your content? No! It’s the passion to create your content.

Well! Choosing the right content and finding the right audience for your content is not an easy task too! 

As we all know, social media is all about engagement with the perfect audience for your content. But, do we always find them? Quite difficult, isn’t it? This is why you have to choose the right platform to reach your desired audience. From knowing the perfect platform for your content to reaching the right audience, there are many things that every video creator has to have their eyes on!

What do you think that some of the common mistakes which every beginner video creator makes? Basics are everything! Not taking the time to learn the basics of video production is the first mistake that even a passionate video creator does. Experimenting right away might not always work for you. So, the next time you create a video, get your hands on some of the basics of video creation. This is why we are here to help you out!

If you’re just getting to start making videos, here are a few tips for you to make the process a little easier:

1. Start with something you’re interested in

When you’re passionate about the topic you’re talking about, it’s easier to stay interested and engaged throughout the video creation process.

2. Keep it short and sweet

People have shorter attention spans when it comes to videos, so try to keep your videos around 3-5 minutes long.

3. Use a tripod

This will help keep your videos stable and look more professional.

4. Make sure your lighting is good

If your video is too dark or too bright, it will be difficult to watch. Try to find a location with good lighting or use a light kit to brighten things up.

5. Practice, practice, practice

The more you make videos, the better you’ll get. Don’t be afraid to experiment and try new things. So, if you have started creating one, yet not getting 100% satisfied, there are a few things you can do to improve your video creation skills. Firstly, practice making videos as often as possible. This will help you get better at it and make you more comfortable in front of the camera. Secondly, watch other people’s videos and learn from their techniques. Thirdly, experiment with different types of videos and styles. And finally, always keep learning and improving your skills. There’s always room for improvement! 🙂

Trying to do too much in one video is not a good idea, my friend! If you are a good editor for yourself, kudos to you! It’s time to start implementing those editing skills of yours to create an incredible video appealing to your audience! Even a simple and plain video can do wonders with the right editing skills. Not editing even the perfect videos can backfire on you! So, bring that editor in you to publish the best videos!

At Pepul, you can create videos by either recording your screen or by importing an existing video. Let’s take a look at how to do both. 

To record your screen, first open the Pepul app and select the “Plus” tab in the bottom right corner of the screen. Then, click the “Video” option and start recording by tapping the white icon. When you’re done recording, click the button again and tap the arrow key for the next step. Use filters and start entering the right description with relevant hashtags. Check out the preview and upload your story!

There you go! TADA! Your video has been successfully uploaded!

To import an existing video, first, open the Pepul app and select the “Plus” tab. Then, select the video from the gallery which you want to import. Change the duration of your video story, choose your favourite filter, and start uploading! 

Now that you have uploaded the video, however, there are a few things you can do to make your videos more engaging. One is to keep your videos short so that people don’t get bored. You can also add elements like music and animations to keep people’s attention. 

But, here’s a check!

Never forget to keep the human element in your videos. We are all humans! At the end of the day, we all connect through emotions. So, always create realistic videos with a human touch. Make sure to keep your videos interesting and relevant to your audience.

Wondering what’s the next step?

Well, now that you have uploaded your videos in Pepul, to get more audience to check out your content, here’s a PRO TIP for you!

You can try sharing your video story link on your website or personal blog if you have one. Nothing works as well as personal branding does! If you are not going to talk about yourself, who will? Finally, don’t forget about online forums and communities where you can ask questions and get feedback from experienced video creators.

Thanks for reading! We hope you found this guide helpful and that you’re inspired to start creating videos of your own.

Happy Creating!
