How to Use a Teleprompter Like a Pro

Using a teleprompter when speaking on camera can help you more clearly deliver information to your audience. It’s a tool that’s very useful in professional video production and is great to combine with our scripts available in our Edumarketing Toolbox.

Though useful, teleprompters aren’t always the easiest to use. Here are a few tips you can implement for a more natural performance when using a teleprompter.

Let’s start with the basics, what is a teleprompter?

What is a teleprompter?

A teleprompter is a device that displays lines of speech for a speaker. You can use apps to turn your phone into a teleprompter so you can easily record the video directly from your phone. We recommend the Joe Allen for iPhones and the Nano for Androids.

You may also use an external teleprompter on your digital camera. You can find our recommendations at www.edumarketing.com under equipment.

Shoot Your Video Horizontally

Horizontal video is currently the most common format for distribution, and that’s likely to stay the same for quite some time. The vertical video slowly became more popular after 2010, following the release of the iPhone, and as most smartphones adopted a similar, taller screen shape.

It’s Better for Long-Form Content

Nobody wants to watch long-form content in a vertical format. Not only do people prefer to consume content on bigger devices, but even when they do consume content on their smartphone, it’s very easy to simply flip the phone sideways and watch the video horizontally.

We’re Naturally Equipped for Horizontal Video

Our eyesight is naturally horizontal, allowing us to see more in our peripheral vision. That’s why horizontal video has long been the most popular option and why most viewers prefer it.

It’s Professional

Anybody can record vertical content on their phones nowadays, but high-resolution,...

Drop Zillow and Add Video to Your Marketing Budget

I was having a conversation with a new client the other day, who is a branch manager for a team of about 11 originators.  He shared with me that he was cancelling his Zillow and Google GEO Caching for the year to add video to his marketing.  He said he had absolutely no results from either and knew he needed to get into video.  It made me think about how many times do we honestly look at the services we are using and how they are working for us.  So, where can you cut your advertising budget to increase doing video?  Could it be with Zillow or Facebook Ads or something else.  As we build our marketing plans for the coming year, look at where you can cut something to add something.  

Here are some statistics to help you validate doing more with video this year: (from Wyzowl)

  1. 94% of video marketers say video has help increase user understanding of their product.
  2. 78% of video marketers say video...

Here are some top tips to schedule time to record your videos.

  1. Have your equipment and recording are set up and ready to go. If you have a place where you can easily record a quick video you will be more likely to record a video.

The main thing is that you have easy access to your phone, computer camera or digital and you are set up with a mic and way to record. As long as you have your phone with you, you have a way to record a video and the quality on most phones are great, so just pick up your phone and record.

Edumarketer Tip #140: Educational Marketing Content

Uncategorized Nov 24, 2021

You can create educational marketing content in many different ways.  We talk a lot about video, because we need more video in our industry and it is new, but there are many other means to educate that have been used for a long time.  I love leveraging my educational marketing content with blogs, handouts and webinars. 

 

There are many options for creating edumarketing content. You may write a blog post or create a video for your YouTube channel. You may create a check list to use to capture leads on your website or an online course for your eLearning site. You may create a PowerPoint slide deck to use in a webinar or you may use the topic as a discussion in your podcast. You can develop several different deliverables for each topic. The most important thing to remember is to take your topic and write your content, then develop your deliverables.
