What is considered quality videos?

10 replies
I see many people talk about fiverr gigs then I see many people talk about how crap fiverr is. My question is what would be considered a quality video then? Lets use this for a example since the weight loss and diet market is huge. What would be considered a quality video?? I only know of whiteboard and testimonial and if those are considered quality or can be quality videos why is a lot of fiverr gigs crap? I guess the overall question is some good tips to make the video good quality..


Thank you for the information

    A quality video will be rendered in high definition so you can convert it to multiple formats and sizes.

    As for content, it should be original, engaging, provide valuable information and not simply rehash what thousands of other videos in the same niche do.

    Hi GrindingHard

    Don't worry about what people say about fiverr. Worry about whether you would find it useful in your business. I both buy and sell on fiverr and it works a treat as long as you are careful and know what you are doing. All my purchases are paid for and more by my sales on fiverr.

    As regards videos....

    Most are beautifully produced rubbish that no one will ever watch to the end. So your link or money screen is never seen. The whiteboard videos that you mentioned are not good just because you made one. You need a proper plan and a tight script to make people watch the whole 2 minutes. (Don't make long whiteboard videos - It is pointless)

    With videos you need to have a reason to produce one and then think of an original presentation and story to keep the viewers attention. While I am watching your video I could be watching world cup football or NCIS or anything. It has to be good.

    Quality is judged but the value of the content that you are providing not in the type of video....

    A quality video for me is when the content in the video is engaging or when it solves a problem for me. There a re videos out there where the of the video isn't that good or the rendering or what ever but I don't care about all that if the content has quality!

    "Quality" is in the eye of the viewer. The most popular videos on Youtube entertain. Others can inform, get viewers to take action, etc.

    Entire courses have been written on creating "quality" videos, but the most important thing is to have viewers that actually watch the video. A "quality" video is no good if no one watches it.

    Videos can be created in any number of ways, using a video camera, talking head, screen capture, animation, whiteboard, presentation, etc, or any combo of these.

    For presenation-style videos, I suggest mixing up the media to make things more interesting. Use the "Ken Burns effect" on still images. Add a slide with whiteboarding, add a video, animated text headline, etc.

    Don't write blocks of text and then narrate the same text. The human brain has a hard time reading and listening at the same time. This is a common mistake I see in many videos.

    Keep videos short. Edit them well. Write a script and stick to it. Research has shown that videos under 2 minutes are the most popular on Youtube.

    Take the time to get your YT channel "associated" with your website. This allows you to put clickable links in your videos to your own site. Don't just tell people to click a link in your description where they are NOT looking. Tell them to click a link right in your video.

    Include a clear call to action. Make it easy and obvious what the viewer should do. Do you want them to subscribe to yout YT channel, click a link, enter an email address? For Youtube social signals, don't worry about likes, comments, etc., only worry about subscribers. If you get subscribers, the other social signals will take care of themself.

    Include "end cards" aka "end slates" at the end of your videos that tell people what to do and make it easy for them to do it. Good use of end cards is likely the most underused tool in video marketing and are even encourage by YT.

    YT tells you what videos people like. Research the popular videos in any niche and see which have the most views and best like:don't like ratios and read the comments. Then ask yourself can you make a similar video:

    quickly and easily?
    free or cheaply?
    is the video popular and in a niche where plenty of other videos focused on other keywords also get lots of views?
    what kind of credibility do you need?

    I would say that successful video should be:
    1. High definition
    2. Short
    3. To the point
    4. With a good soundtrack or voice over

    Hey there! I think a quality video is based on who the audience is. In order to make it a good video I think the person creating it has to have some sense of who the actual people who are viewing it are, so they can connect with them on one level or another! Fiverr is a quality site, it's just a matter of finding the right people who's work you like, and are excited to work on their products! I think it's well worth paying personal users on Fiverr for them to do what they're good at

    First if possible the video should be in HD (720P or 1080P).
    Second, the video should look attractive and not too long so that the viewer can watch it 'till the end
    Third, the message/details should be well elaborated and able to pick the interest of your prospect (if you are talking about an advertising video).

      Personally, I think quality content trumps any kind of fancy video graphics or whatever. You can have a very simple powerpoint video with just slides and narration that will have amazing results. Ultimately, people don't really care about "hypey" production if the content is good.
