Today is day #14 of the video blogging challenge. I have another interesting video tip for you today that you can take advantage of immediately. I learned about this idea many years ago when I worked in a commercial Print shop.
I created a video to show you, but if you prefer to read, there is text below.
Watch the Video:
Rule of Thirds
Today’s video tip applies to graphic design and photography, too. I am talking about the “Rule of Thirds” which is a concept that you should break down your screen into horizontal and vertical sections.
Place an imaginary tic-tac-toe board on top and use the intersecting points as focal points for your videos. This instantly boosts the value of your video from boring to interesting!
If I sat correctly in front of the camera, you should see a white line drawn over my face and body from the top to bottom of the screen.
Naturally, if you are not positioned directly on the center of the screen, what can you do with the extra space left on the screen?
- Provide a product image (and short review).
- Make an announcement for an upcoming challenge.
- Add a call to action to your squeeze page.
If you do not want to add anything in the extra space, then leave it empty; though, I strongly suggest adding a call to action of some kind!
Incidentally, the Rule of Thirds helps make your video more interesting and less boring to the viewer because you provide other points of interest than just your face.
Do you use the Rule of Thirds? Leave a comment below and let me know!
