How To Create Great Video Tutorials For A WordPress Blog


Tutorials are an excellent form of video content that are both informative and useful. Of course if you want to publish tutorials on your WordPress blog then you’re going to have to create them first – which can be a bit of a challenge in its own right.

To get started on the right foot, here is what you should do to create great tutorials:

Start with a set of instructions

The backbone of every good tutorial is a clear set of instructions. Make sure you outline each step in such a way that it can be followed by someone with no experience whatsoever.

Decide how to ‘show’ how each step performed

Essentially your video tutorial should show how the actions in each step can be performed. In some cases that will mean that you will want to record yourself performing the actions using a digital camera, but in others you may find that you will need to use screen capture or some other method to do so.

Script the voiceover narration

Typically video tutorials are accompanied by a voiceover narration – and you will want to script yours out in advance so that it is clear and uninterrupted. Keep in mind that the timing of the voiceover narration should coincide with the actions in the video itself.

Record more than one take if necessary

Once you do start recording the footage for your tutorial, be sure to record more than one take if necessary. Later when you are editing and compiling the tutorial you can discard what you don’t need, but as a rule of thumb it is always best to have extra footage in case you need it.

If you do decide to create a video tutorial by recording your screen you should give Movavi Screen Capture Studio a try. It is a complete training video software that will let you record as well as edit videos quickly and effectively.
