2) Prepare some labelling to label items if there too many of it. Example if you're capturing a cooking video, labelling some of the essential like cooking oil, salt, sugar or flour would make your viewer having a better understanding of what is added while you're cooking.

3) Pay attention to lighting source, always have stronger lighting source at the back if you're holding the camera. Watch out for uneven lighting that cause heavy shadow on the object you want to feature. Use a reflector on the side or around of the object to even up the lighting source.

4) Practice first whenever possible as the old saying 'practice makes perfect'.

5) If you're doing voice recording as well, speak clearly and naturally. Always reherse before shooting.

6) Avoid going into to much details that might cause confusion. Make it as simple as possible, most people searching for solution on the web are looking for the easiest possible way to deal with their problem.

Videos can be loaded to popular video hosting and streaming site like youtube and share on your own website or social network for marketing.
