Your video needs to be fun and something that people will want to share with their friends. It can also be a ‘how to’ video. The video must seem real – it is OK to make mistakes in the video and too professional a production may put people off.

Your video needs to connect with people. Encourage friends and colleagues to share the video. Remember that people can share through Facebook, Twitter and other forms of social media. The more people that you can get to view the video, the better.

Try to give your video replay value i.e. let it be something that people will want to watch again and again.
