People are not only interested in a celebrity’s public life, but also look forward to a slice of personal life. Make the website as pleasing to the visual senses as possible.

Start blogging

Blogging is an instant way to stay connected to the fans and remain popular on web, even in search engine rankings. To keep fans updated about what’s happening in a celebrity’s life a blog post comes really handy. Ask your celebrity client to write a short blog post regularly.

Social networking

The celebrity should frequently update status message, at least 3-4 times a day. It will keep fans and followers happy and interested. As a celebrity manager you may do the job on celebrity’s behalf. Make sure you also upload pictures and short videos of the celebrity, some formal occasions and may be some casual and personal ones. People will earnestly wait for the next picture to come up. You may also create the celebrity’s official fan page on the social networking sites. Ask people questions related to the celebrity.

Online chat session for an hour

People love the celebrities and treat them as idols. But fans and followers also want to come close to the celebrity at times, know more about them and talk directly. Arrange direct online chat session for an hour or so with the celebrity on social networking sites. Advertise the event at least a week before and follow up every alternate days. It will keep the fans awaited for the chat session, eagerly waiting forward to it. Allows the followers to ask direct questions to the celebrity, who may even put on the webcam to make the fans feel great and rewarded.

Power of web is beyond imagination and can actually draw the celebrity more spotlight.

23 May 11 Tips for Making a Good Video Tutorial

Making a video tutorial and posting them on various video archive websites and social media networks is quite common these days. However, very few can create exceptionally good video tutorials meeting actual purpose of learning. Few basic tips can help you procure great video tutorials. Here are some simple tips for you.

High quality picture

What is very important for a video tutorial is its picture quality. Make sure picture resolution is high, with maximum clarity. Good finishing at the editing table is important too.

Subtitles, thought bubbles, supers

A video tutorial is never complete unless it has texts in forms of subtitles, texts in between scenes, thoughts bubbles, supers (text on screen) supporting the audio-visual input. People may think even a voice over (VO) can do the job, but it’s more effective and memorable when people read the same on screen. These supporting texts can do wonders.

Add some value to it

Don’t make just another video tutorial of no much substance in it. Make a video tutorial if you have enough knowledge of the subject, know it in-depth and have done enough research on the same before making the video tutorial. If you do not add something new to your video, no one will be interested in it.

Script has to be strong

No video tutorial comes out well, unless it has been developed on rock solid script. Don’t start a video tutorial without any script in front of you. It is the first step towards video making. Just special effects can’t do a magic to your video tutorial with no strong script in it.

Checklist at the end

Don’t forget a video tutorial remains incomplete unless it has a checklist at the end, summarizing the content communicated in the video. Checklist helps the audience to complie the entire content, to recall and memorize the main points and feel enriched.

Don’t make it dramatic

Always remember video tutorials are not films, or daily soaps. They don’t need acting skill or screen presence. Don’t develop a dramatic script, with twisted dialogues and pretentious moves. Keep it simple, straight on face, clear and substantial. At the same time, it shouldn’t be boring. Maintain the pace, neither fast nor too slow. Keep it conversational, interesting. Remember, it’s not entertainment, it’s information transmitted through interesting video with aids like live examples, demonstrations. Don’t forget its objective behind.

So what are you waiting for? Start with your video tutorial. Just follow these simple tips while making your video tutorial.
