How to Make a Video Review

September 30, 2010 by  Filed under: Video 

Have you just purchased a new game console that you really saved up for and you really consider as “worth it?” If you can’t stop raving about it, put your positive comments to a beneficial use and upload a video of your product review online. It’s easy, fun to do, and you can bet your money that a lot of people would be interested in finding out what you have to say – or show – about your latest obsession.

Why It Works

Making – and consulting – consumer reviews in video format is fast gaining leverage over traditional written reviews. People find it easier and more reliable to watch live demonstrations or un-boxing clips of the products they are interested in buying. It also usually takes less time to watch a video clip than to read a whole article. Review writers, on the other hand, enjoy the ease of making homemade video reviews. It is relatively easier to sit in front of the web or video camera and fire away on the benefits of their product, instead of slaving over trying to compose a cohesive, creative paragraph. Non-professional customer reviews are particularly more popular in video format because making and uploading a video does not require a professional license or strict writing credibility.

How to Make Your Own Video Review

Making a video review is really all about showing the product and talking about it in your own style, but there indeed some basic rules about shooting your customer reviews:

1. Shoot in a room with good lighting and acoustics – your video is for information about the product, not for entertainment. It is important to focus well on the product and make sure that it and its effects or features, sounds, buttons, and the like register well on the video. If you can, ask help to shoot your video review

2. Try to limit unnecessary comments or reactions – try to practice your review spiel (no matter how informal you have created it) before shooting. Make sure that even if you deliver your review in a conversational tone (which is ideal), you’re still talking about reliable tips and comments and not simply reactions. Aside from demonstrating how the product works, it is usually helpful for customers to hear explanations or in-depth analysis on your part.

3. Keep it simple and short – the best reviews on video are those that deliver the maximum message in the shortest possible time. People would usually prefer clicking a link to a review that does not eat up more than seven minutes of their surfing time. Consumer reviews are best done concisely to be effective.
