Video Scripting

You've heard the stats. One hour of video is uploaded to YouTube every second. Outside office hours, video takes up 50% of our surfing time. And experts are predicting that soon it will account for a massive 90% of our web time, day and night.

Video used to be an option - but not any more. Google loves it, customers demand it...so the only question is, where do you start?

This module covers:

  • Offer, branding or value-add: what's your video for?
  • Presentation formats: which is right for you?
  • How to generate ideas for your first 100 videos
  • Writing a video script that keeps the viewer hooked...
  • ...and doesn't tie the poor presenter up in knots!
  • The Sermon Rule: using stories to get your point across
  • Making the most of a green screen, without resorting to gimmicks
  • Mixing video with text: addition or duplication?
  • YouTube & Beyond: uploading and sharing your video
  • Using captions, annotations and call to action buttons

* Plus: an optional live shoot with a videographer and green screen

Video Scripting can be adapted to suit your sector and in-house skills: either as a stand-alone session or as part of a training day.

Your training package can include other modules listed in this section. Please call for latest pricing and availability.

My book on how to write simple, conversational copy is a kind of antidote to hype and boardroom speak.

Since it was published in November 2013, I've been getting calls, tweets and emails from people telling me how it's changed the way they write.

It's also had a few 5-star reviews on Amazon, from readers who say they've finally hit on a winning formula.

So while it's not my place to tell you this is a great book, I can tell you that lots of other people think it is! See for yourself.

And this year, I'm including it free in your training package. Every delegate receives a copy, so they'll have an instant refresher long after the day is done.
