Why Use Video Tutorials Instead of Written Content?
You might ask, “Why do I have to convert my PLR content to a video tutorial?”
That’s honestly a good question. And one by one, we’re going to talk about the reasons why video tutorials are better than written content in this section.
Written content can just be skipped.
While written content is immensely useful to some, it’s definitely not the case for others. Some people find it hard to follow through by reading, and as a result, they tend to skip pages and understand a little.
Even if your customized PLR content contains awesome and useful information, it wouldn’t really matter if people don’t take the time to read it.
Thus, it would mean that your content won’t be useful to those kinds of people.
And when we’re talking about business, we want to reach as many people as possible. So utilizing different means, such as video tutorials would be a great and effective way to do that.
Video tutorials are great at holding your viewers’ attention.
Indeed, video tutorials are better at keeping the attention of your viewers, especially when presented well.
When it comes to written content, it would be easier to get distracted, especially for those who are not that fond of reading. So they’ll just be more likely to scroll down aimlessly through a pile of words and paragraphs.
But with video tutorials, viewers will be served with moving images that will more likely hold their attention for a much longer period of time. Plus, they’ll be able to retain information better with videos as opposed to written content.
They’re easier to follow.
Have you ever bought something that came with written instructions? Were you able to follow through?
If you were, then that’s awesome! If not, then welcome to the club!
And that’s exactly the point. Videos are easier to follow than written instructions. Video tutorials give us accurate instructions that we can clearly see, understand, and follow step by step.
They can teach new skills.
Most people who want to learn a new skill these days often directly go to YouTube to look for tutorials instead of buying a book.
And there’s definitely a good reason why! Video tutorials are very effective at teaching new skills because they can show us how to do something in the most precise way instead of us having to imagine it in our heads.
You can pause or rewind them.
This is also one of the best things about video tutorials. When you can’t understand something, you can easily pause, rewind or repeat them. And you can watch them anywhere and anytime, at your own convenience.
Of course, you can do the same for written content except there are no visuals that can help you understand and follow through much better and accurately.
They can help you connect with your audience.
Creating video tutorials allow you to showcase yourself and your skills, whether you choose to show yourself or just do voiceovers for infographic videos.
Video tutorials allow your viewers to get to know you and your way of teaching. If they like how you present your content, they’re gonna keep coming back and continue to engage with you by commenting or leaving positive feedback that will help you build a deeper connection.
They can be easily shared on social media!
With just a few clicks or taps, you can easily share your video tutorials on other social media platforms. The great thing about doing this is that other platforms already have billions of users!
So sharing them there would definitely increase your brand’s exposure and awareness and it’s an effective way to redirect those people to your videos. Take advantage of it!
How Will Using PLR Content for Video Tutorials Benefit Me?
It’s a great time saver!
Since you already have content that just needs some tweaking, using them would definitely help you save a great deal of time that you can use for other important things instead.
It’s a great money-saver as well!
Apart from the fact that PLR content can be bought at such a reasonable price, you’re not gonna need a scriptwriter anymore, so it’s a great way to cut costs. Similar to how you can usefully use your extra time, you can then use that extra money for other important things.
You’ll never run out of ideas!
That’s because there are tons of available PLR content no matter what your niche is!
No more brainstorming and no more writer’s block. You don’t have to stress out about what you should put out every single day.
You’ll be able to stay consistent.
Since you have an almost endless reservoir of ideas, that means it’ll be easier for you to upload and share videos regularly.
How do I Find Good Quality PLR Content for my Tutorials?
Decide on a niche.
Before actually buying content, you’ll first have to think about what niche you want to focus on. It’ll make it easier for you to choose PLR content packages.
Research the best places where you can buy quality PLR.
This is one of the most important things you’ll have to keep in mind when using PLR content.
There are many places that offer free and well-written PLR content. And although it sounds like a bargain, it’s really not, unless you know how to make use of them efficiently.
And that’s what many others think as well, which means that those people also got and used the same content for themselves.
When buying PLR content, make sure that the place you’re buying from doesn’t just sell their products to an unlimited number of buyers. If you’d like to learn more, visit our previous blog about the best places to buy PLR content.
Tips for Creating Engaging and Informative Video Tutorials
For Filmed Video Tutorials
Plan before you start filming.
Before you get your camera out, plan what you want your tutorial to be like. For example, attention-grabbing ads didn’t just happen randomly while shooting or filming, they were carefully planned.
Or when you want to build a house, you don’t just go and lay down the bricks instantly, you’re gonna need a carefully crafted framework.
What I’m trying to say is that it’s very important to get a clear idea about how you want things to flow, so they can go smoothly. By doing so, you won’t have to redo shots and you won’t end up with footage that you actually don’t need, thus saving your time.
Once everything’s all set, you’ll feel confident because you have a process that you can follow instead of just second-guessing what to do next.
Double-check your lighting and focus your camera.
You don’t want to have videos that are too dark, shaky, or out of focus, because surely, viewers don’t like that as well.
If you want your videos to look professional, then consider investing in lighting, a tripod, and other filming equipment.
But if you’re just starting out, you can be creative by using natural light instead. If you don’t have a tripod, use a stack of books.
No camera? No problem. Most phones these days are equipped with excellent lenses, and they’re great tools you can use if you’re just starting out.
Speak with a moderate and clear voice.
Remember, you’re making a video tutorial so speak at a natural pace. You don’t want to go too fast, otherwise, your viewers will not be able to follow through.
You don’t want to go too slow as well, otherwise, your viewers might fall asleep and forget that they’re actually watching a tutorial. Speak at a moderate pace, with a clear and engaging voice that will keep your viewers attention.
Edit your video.
Make it more engaging by using interesting and relevant visual and sound effects. If you have access to the best editing software, then that’s awesome!
If not, there are a lot of amazing open-source editing software that you can legally use for free!
Upload them to popular sites.
Once everything’s all done, all there’s left for you to do is to upload them on the world’s most popular sites, such as YouTube.
And to boost your videos even more, share them on social media! These platforms have billions of users, so doing so will increase the visibility of your content!
For Slideshows, Animation or Illustration Video Tutorials
Plan before you start.
Just as you would when you film or shoot videos. Though you don’t have to use actual video footage for this, it still needs careful planning.
And it needs it even more so than filming or shooting because, for this one, you’re gonna be using catchy visuals, illustrations, graphics, and even animation.
You can start by creating an engaging storyline from the content that you got. Then you can create a storyboard about its sequence.
A great example of something like this is the YouTube channel called “Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell”.
Create a catchy and appealing design.
Be creative with this one. If you’re the artsy type, then you’ll definitely have fun creating some awesome designs.
If not, no worries! Fortunately, there are a lot of design platforms these days that are actually user-friendly and easy to use.
Take Canva for example. Even with the free version, you can already do a lot! How much more if you go for the pro version!
Upload them to popular sites.
Just as I mentioned earlier, once you have everything ready to go, upload them, share them on social media, and let the world know about what you have for them!
Important Things to Consider When Using PLR Content
This might be something that we always talk about, and we’re gonna keep talking about them because that’s how important they are.
Make sure to customize your PLR content.
PLR content can be used and purchased by several people, which means there’s a chance that if you don’t edit the content that you have, you’ll end up having a duplicate.
Customize them and add your own voice and knowledge to them, especially if you know a lot about the niche you chose. Want to edit them faster? An AI writing assistant can surely help you with that!
By customizing your content, you’re adding your own personality to it which will allow your viewers to get to know a little bit about you. Doing this will also make your content unique and will save you from duplication and even plagiarism.
Double check the facts.
It’s possible that you might have purchased outdated content, so what used to be true may not be true anymore. That’s why it’s always important to double-check facts so that you remain credible to your viewers.
Now with all of that said, I hope you find these things useful and informative.
