Firstly, Happy Easter if you are celebrating ...
Today I was on the hunt for a gluten free, dairy free, sugar free Easter egg for myself!
Oh look ... I found one ... :)
So some quick tips:
Watch Videos out of your niche!
I've recently been watching a bunch of 'Mr. Beast' Videos on YouTube.
My kids don't get it .. Why would an old dude like me :) watch 20 year olds mess around and spend money like there is no tomorrow?
Did they forget I used to be a freelance MTV Director when I was younger? I love this style of video.
Even if you are an Accountant or a Funeral Director who uses video, you should always expand what you watch online to get fresh ideas.
I do admit, after a while all the fooling around in Mr. Beast videos can get tiring ... but the titles of his videos are very intriguing and the editing is very smart! Y
You can learn from his Videos even if they are not exactly your 'cup of tea'.
Take this Video 'I spent $50k on lottery tickets and won __'

The video does feel long (probably to increase Watch Time and fit in several Ad breaks for monetization) but it's worth sticking with it for a few minutes even if you hate it, to see the different editing techniques.
The takeaway .. next time you film / edit a talking head (or heads) ... don't be boring .. think what spice can you add to make your Video standout!
Use some of the tips I just mentioned.
Mr. Beast often uses Fun Motion Graphics in his Videos to make them move and to keep your attention with added sound FX to catch the ear.
Well I have made (with a designer) 300 cool graphics to use in your next videos. No subscription required >>
