WATCH NOW: How Often Should I Shoot Video Content?
When it comes to video content, there are two main types in terms of how often you should be shooting. Evergreen video content versus updated video content. Let’s take a look at what these two mean.
According to Lynda.com, “Evergreen videos are videos that are still relevant after 30 days. This content has the ability to serve as a gateway to new audience growth, and can help with establishing authority in a niche.”
Some examples of evergreen video content include:
This content can live on your website, your blog, your social media pages, or anywhere that you want people to learn information about your brand that that’s timeless. So in this case, the answer to “How often should I shoot video content” is not very often, as evergreen video content contains information that doesn’t change frequently. This type of content will continue to bring you results long after you shoot it.
On the other hand, another valuable type of video content is up to date content that keeps your followers in the loop on any new happenings. This type of content can include:
Lydia explains the importance of this type of content, saying, “People like knowing what’s happening, up to date, current in your brand. So producing video content on a consistent basis is really useful in that your clients, your viewers, whoever is watching this can feel like they’re up to date, that they know what’s going on now.”
So the answer to “How often should I shoot video content” really comes down to the type of content that your brand needs the most.
