Here are ten advantages of video blogging that you should seriously consider integrating into your videos. Many things have advantages, such as owning a Rolls Royce car, but if you never take it out of the garage then what it the point?
1 – It appeals to people with poor reading skills
The people who cannot read English can still follow your blog. Also the people who are slow readers and find reading frustrating–they will also be able to follow your blog.
2 – It allows you to pack more into your message
Within a video blog, you are able to cover a lot more content because it removes the need for description. For example instead of saying “do you remember x from the x TV show” you can communicate all of that by simply showing a quick picture of that person next to the title of their TV show.
3 – You can show instead of tell
Instead of telling people how good your new ground tiller is you can show them with a quick demonstration.
4 – You can make it more interesting than written text
You can add music, visual effects and varied characters on a video blog. You may also have different backgrounds, locations and journeys on a video; if done correctly this can be made more exciting than text.
5 – It takes very little user effort to watch a video
A person has to commit a little bit of their effort in order to read your blog post. They have to commit to the piece in full if they wish to read it to the end and not stop half way or skim read it. A video is different because all a user needs to do is sit there and allow the video to run interrupted.
6 – You can repeat your message with less structure problems
Repetition within written text is the cardinal sin that is committed by only the most self indulgent or incompetent writers. This is not the case with videos. Just as long as it is not done in a promotional way, repetition is tolerable. Repetition may even be part of the fundamental structure, for example if you are leading someone through a subject of discussion you may ask, “So why x”, “How does x happen”, “How was x allowed to happen”.
7 – You can literally include the voices of many people in a seamless fashion
It is hard to add multiple voices into text unless you are willing to create a sort of script format. You may however add multiple voices into a video.
8 – You can fill it with visually interesting elements that you would not be able to otherwise do with text or images
A picture may only show an image as it stands at that moment. A piece of text may describe an event unfold, but in half the time you may show an event happen with a video. The best example is a sped up video of a flower opening up. This could not be shown via a simple picture, and text would struggle to describe the process in adequate detail. However, a video could show this perfectly.
9 – You can add music, thereby adding another tangible element
With music you are able to add an emotional or dynamic element. You can add the dynamic elements of exciting and fun (for example), or you can add an emotional aspect. Instead of just putting a background track into the video, it should alter or change along with the content of the video.
10 – You can alter the pace and tone of your video without it affecting the flow
This cannot be done with text. If you altered the tone or syntax during a piece of text then it becomes a lot harder to read, and the impact of the piece is lost. You can make a video fast and slow at the drop of hat. You can explain exciting elements quickly and describe complex items a lot more slowly.
