The Online Video Toolkit from Jim Kukral
Jim Kukral has a free guide to making video for your blog or website.
Jim has been running the Daily Flip video blog for quite awhile. Now he is sharing some of the things he has learned and does with the rest of us.
I just finished watching the videos he has up so far and they are very informative.
The Online Video Toolkit is meant for those just starting to think about doing video blogging or podcasting. Jim uses a very inexpensive setup in producing the Daily Flip and gets great results. He also uses no technical jargon when he is explaining what he does.
Some of the topics the video guide cover so far are:
- Choosing a camera
- Inexpensive lighting with great results
- Setting up your "studio"
- Clothing to wear
There are other subjects he covers also. He will be adding more videos to the guide. Jim also asks if there are some subjects that you would like him to cover. I think he did a great job showing how much your clothing can affect the camera, this is something I might not have thought about.
Video and podcasting are becoming more and more important for bloggers and Internet marketers.
While you may not want to use video in all your posts, it is something that you should be familiar with and be able to add when you need it. There are times when video can really make a difference. Use the right tool for the job. Or, you can use Jim’s techniques for an all video blog like the Daily Flip.
I find Jim’s Kukral’s The Daily Flip to be one of the best video blogs I have seen.
Jim does a great job. His videos are short and well done. The Daily Flip is very informative and you can learn quite a bit about internet marketing there. He is a great example to follow if you want to do video. Now he is showing everyone how he does it and what he uses.
If you are thinking about adding video to your blog, give the Online Video Toolkit a look.
It is free. Jim does ask you to sign up with an email address to get access, but Jim is a straight up kind of guy. I don’t think you’re going to find yourself getting email from Jim about any of the crazy deals you typically get when you give your email. Jim is not selling anything in the videos or on the site. He even goes into Best Buy to show you where you can get video cameras like the Flip Camera he uses.
