Recording a great video isn’t always easy, we’re not all experts. However, Modulates is here to help by providing some great tips on how to record a great video testimonial.

Step 1: Location

When recording a video try to stay away from background noise as much as possible. Find a quiet place, be it indoors or out. Watch for echoes when recording inside as your voice may bounce off the walls and for your voice booming when recording in spacious areas.

Step 2: Lighting

The wonders of lighting can guarantee the camera always catches your ‘good side’, for the viewers this means they’ll have a clearer, crisper video to watch. When outdoors be sure to keep the sun in front of you, behind the camera, and of course, don’t forget to smile.

Step 3: Camera

Steady is the key. Whether you’re using a camcorder, webcam, or your phone do your best to keep the camera stable and centered while recording.

Step 4: Sound

Take your time, speak loud and clear. Use an external microphone for great audio whenever you can, if your only option is a built in microphone get it as close to yourself as possible. It never hurts to do a test run to adjust your voice or your microphone.

Step 5: Recording

Introduce yourself when the camera starts rolling. Describe the situation you were in when you decided to pick up the particular product or service. What were the results? Be specific, give examples, and maybe even make comparisons if you’ve shopped around.

Summarize your overall experience and don’t forget to recommend the product, person, company, or service you’re giving a testimonial for. Show some emotion. Excitement, enthusiasm, and smiles are always the best, we want to see them.

That’s it for our helpful tips to recording a great video testimonial, we hope we were able to help and look forward to seeing your submissions. Thank you, from the Modulates Team.

Building Social Influence Via Video Testimonials
