How to make a great Video Profile?

Hi! Are you ready to join VIKOC and become an excellent creator? Here you can cooperate with brands and make your video creation more valuable!

Video profiles are where you show your talents to the brands, so please make sure to do your best to showcase your shooting and creative abilities!

Here are suggestions for your video profile content!

  1. First of all, make a brief self-introduction.
  2. You can show your sports skills, makeup skills, singing or dancing skills, or just try to role play to show your fun so that the corresponding businesses can see your skills!
  3. Or just pick up a product around you and try to promote it! Please ensure that the product packaging is readable in the video. You can just flip the video!
  4. It is also an excellent choice to show your professional ability to shoot and edit videos.
  5. The short videos created by you which are successful on social media may also be good!

Here are 8 things you should be aware of when creating your video profile!

  1. Background. The neat background and beautiful scene will leave a good impression on the brand!
  2. Light. Shoot in a well-lit place. Choose a neutral background that is not distracting.
  3. Give yourself some space! Keep a good distance from the camera.
  4. Stable shooting. Make sure the camera is stable and at eye level. Use a tripod or just stabilize the camera.
  5. Make sure the video is clearly visible. Imagine that if the video can’t be seen clearly, the brand won’t dare to give you the product to make the video!
  6. No filters, no music!
  7. Please add subtitles.
  8. Please do not show any watermark or social account of other platforms in the video profile!
