And are wondering how to promote it and how to encourage people to watch it. Whether it’s an entertainment or a music video, an instructional video or how-to guide, a fitness video, a video made on your travels and adventures, a promotional video for a company, business, product, or service, a fan video, a video for a football / baseball / basketball / hockey / other sports team, a wedding video, or any other kind of video, assumedly you created it for people to see!
You may be a professional videographer, an amateur video creator who does it mainly as a hobby, or somebody new to the game and just starting out. You might have used professional standard video shooting equipment, a camcorder designed primarily for making home movies, a GoPro, a smartphone, or any other device that can record moving images and sound.
Your video may features people, places, or animals. It may involve abstract concepts. It might have scripted speech, interviews, ambient noise, or background music. Your video might have been made in a studio, at home, out and about on the streets, or in nature. You might have spent hours editing your video or it may be raw material. It may even be part of a series. There are many types of videos and many ways to make a video!
