A good way to start producing videos is by creating video content at a conference. Conferences are great because you’ll have access to industry leaders, and experts who are normally more than happy to share a thought or two with you on camera. Plus there’s a built in audience from people who wanted to attend, or from other attendees who want to see what you captured.
It’s not only a great way to build relationships with the people you interview and meet, but it can add to your credibility when you share great video content with your network.
There are a couple of ways that you can create video content. You can record sessions and panel discussions, or you can interview attendees, presenters, and experts.
If you’re just starting it can seem overwhelming, but just keep it simple. Use the tools that you already have like your cell phone/smartphone or a pocket cam.
Once you capture the video, you’ll need to share it, but with sites like YouTube, doing so is fairly simple.
I decided to write about this because there a huge week long digital conference going on in Atlanta called Digital Atlanta.
I’m speaking on a video panel on Thursday, and I’m also trying to curate video content from the event.
If you’re attending a conference, the tips in the video below will help you get started.
(Note: When I made the video I thought that the #digitalatlantavid hashtag would be best, but have learned that a more abbrevieated hashtag is being used, and hope that people use #digatlvid instead).
