Here is a video from our friends at Airvuz, that gives 5 things to think about to get your video noticed. Now the focus is a little different than what most of you will be doing, doing a real estate shoot is not the same as an FPV video that you are hoping to go viral, but it does give some tips that will allow you (and your clients) to get more traction from all of your hard work shooting and editing your aerial footage.
Here is a slightly edited transcript from the Video.
“Step 1 – Make sure your video has aerial footage right off the top! Yes, sponsors and self-promotion are important, but the numbers show videos that start with moving, aerial images are watched more often and for longer periods of time.
Step 2 – Be different. We’ve all seen drone videos of beaches and drone videos of mountains, how does your piece stand out? Maybe you feature someone in a yoga pose on a beach by drone? Or, throw in a cool filter over your drone mountain video?
Step 3 – Take the time to create an enticing thumbnail image. We’ve seen some fantastic drone videos that don’t get the attention they deserve because the thumbnail is too generic. It only takes a few extra moments to customize you image, but it can make a huge difference!
Step 4 – Your title, description, and keywords matter. Using your location and some other attention grabber almost guarantee eyes will be on your drone video. Shooting winter scenes in Iceland? Name your video “Winter in Iceland!” It’s that easy – we promise. But, say you like your video’s funky name? Keep it! Just make sure to include your location, what type of drone you’re using, what you’re shooting, and anything unique about your piece in the keywords and description.
Step 5 – Promote and share your work with your community! On forums? Link your AirVuz.com video right there to show a fellow member how the much you loved working with your DJI Mavic. Share your AirVuz.com videos on Facebook and Twitter and use the #AirVuz – we’ll notice and retweet that awesome drone video of South Africa! Plus, the more you share, the more eyes will be on your video and we all know high view counts always catch people’s attention. “
