This week we feature a Producer Tip from one of you all, the viewers and readers of! Steven Washer recently won a video contest through sharing his tip for video creators about why it's important for video creators to connect with their audience's needs, fears, hopes and dreams. He explains that this is a much more effective way to reach a few, targeted viewers than trying to get hundreds of thousands of views on a video with an audience that cares nothing about your product or service.

Connect With Your Audience's Needs & Fears

Producer Tip is a weekly show that helps online video producers with tips, tricks, advice, secrets, and suggestions for how to make their videos stand out on the web. If you'd like to submit a video producer tip for us to possibly use in a future show, just:

  1. Make a short video
  2. No titles or music
  3. Publish it to YouTube
  4. Send it to us (ReelSEO) on YouTube

And that's it. We'll take the best submissions we receive and add them into upcoming episodes of The Reel Web weekly creator's tip!

      haha It's primarily to help encourage community interaction and engagement. We don't want the show to be all about us. We're willing to help get it started, but we'd love to make it more about you guys and less about us. Sounds corny, I know, but seriously. :)
