Busted Myths:

  • To do video well, you need to have a producer and the right lighting. - This is not the case. You do not need to outsource a video for production as a lot of the videos that get the highest engagement are the ones that are authentic without the glossy finish. People want to connect with what they can trust, something that is real.
