How to Film Your YouTube Intro Video

When creating your intro video, it’s essential to believe in yourself. There are people out there who need your help and support, and they can’t find you if they don’t know who you are.

Watch the video below or read the rest of this post to learn what you need to get started the easiest way possible.

One of the things I’ve noticed over the years is that many people plan and plan but never actually get started with their YouTube channel. Here are some important points to note when filming your YouTube intro video:

1. Gears to use

You don’t need fancy equipment to create a great intro video. I recommend using your mobile phone. This allows you to show up and do the thing without worrying about buying expensive gear.

2. Create steady footage

One piece of equipment I do recommend is a tripod or gorilla pod if you’re using your mobile phone for filming. This will help stabilise your footage and make it look more professional. Shaky footage can make people nervous and affect the quality of what they are watching.

3. Eye level is important

When filming yourself, make sure the camera is at eye level. This will help you connect with your audience and make it feel like you are speaking directly to them.

4. What should be in your YouTube Intro video?

Your intro video should be a quick introduction to your channel. Start by introducing yourself, telling your audience what your channel is about, and what they can expect to find on it. Make sure you highlight the benefits of watching your channel and how it can help your audience.

5. What’s in it for them?

People need to know what’s in it for them before they start following your channel. Highlight the benefits of watching your channel and how it can help your audience. Let them know why they should subscribe and continue watching your videos.

6. Introduce yourself

Introduce yourself, share your name, and what you do. This will help build trust and make them feel more connected to you.

7. Call to action

End your intro video with a call to action. Ask your viewers to subscribe to your channel, like your video, and leave a comment. This will help you build engagement and grow your channel.

Creating an intro video for your YouTube channel can be daunting, but with these tips and tricks, you’ll be able to create a fast and effective intro video that will help you connect with your audience and grow your channel. Remember, taking the first step is the most important thing, and over time, you can improve and make better videos. Just get started and have fun with it!
