Karen X. Cheng, the head of an eponymous marketing agency said, while sharing the secrets behind the success of her Facebook video campaign for the book Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls, “If you don’t have a strong shareable concept that’s executed well, the video is going to tank.” We agree that before you outsource your video editing task to your virtual assistant, you need to be clear about the concept of your video. You need to educate the VA about this concept as telling them about the specifications, and the key ideas behind your video makes a huge difference to their work and will help them deliver better results. Ask them questions and tell them about the parts you dislike and the effects that you’d like to get added. After all, you cannot expect your VA to simply read your mind!
Know What To Expect
Your virtual assistant is a fantastic cost effective solution for taking care of the work you can’t automate. However, before you hire a virtual assistant to perform your video editing tasks, you should know what you can expect from them and the types of videos they can work on. Our virtual assistants can edit different kinds of videos, some of which are:
- Promo Videos
A promo video is a great choice if you want to create buzz for your next event or drive sign ups for your website. It’s a great way of grabbing your viewers’ attention and encouraging them to take action. Our VAs can instantly gauge your ideas and craft your message into a stunningly flawless promo video.

- Combination Footage
A combination footage is a blend of different clips and recordings that is played as a memorable slideshow or a montage. You can use a combination footage to express your key ideas or to display your brand’s credibility. Our VAs can make your slideshows even more dramatic by adding visually captivating effects and transitions.
Know Where You Want To Use The Video
This is one of the most basic requirements that you have to fulfill to get your video right the very first time! You should be clear about where you want to upload your video because that determines the size and format of your video. Videos files can be very large, and that can cause a problem while uploading and hosting the video. If you can settle for a smaller video, you’ll be able to save your viewer’s bandwidth usage and time, while increasing the views and shares on your video! This also saves your VA’s time as they won’t have to go back, resizing the video and wasting hours on it.
Compare And Provide Feedback
Not a video expert? No problem! Start by finishing your homework and looking for some videos that inspire you to buy a company’s services or products. You’re not supposed to copy a particular video, but you will definitely do some good by gaining some guidance from it. Share your thoughts and inspiration with your virtual assistant as this will only help him produce better results. Once your draft video is ready, you follow up with genuine feedback. Watch your clip over and over again and share it with your friends, asking them for feedback. If you spot anything you’d like to change, jot down the time and share your ideas with your VA.
