I just got back from the Emergency Room where they had to straighten out my crossed eyes from watching a video where the fairly well-respected marketer flipped the mouse at lightning speed EVERYWHERE while talking.
It had NOTHING to do with what they were saying - it was like a nervous habit.
Folks, please, take your hands OFF the mouse if you aren't pointing to something that applies to what you're saying. It's really distracting, and makes it extremely hard to focus on the message.
Clicking on everything in the world over and over and over because you have nothing else to do with your hands does not add to your message, k?
This is NOT to be a negative thread - I'm not complaining, I'm trying to keep others from making the same mistake.
We all have SO much input in our lives that pointless eye strain isn't something we need.
Here's an idea: Watch your own videos with the sound OFF. What are you doing on screen? Does it compliment your message or distract viewers, potentially causing them to close it down and be off to the next shiny thing?
Have a great day!
