Should You Script Your YouTube Videos (Let Technology Help) should you script your YouTube videos in
this video I’m gonna go over just that and give you a couple reasons as why you
should or shouldn’t so stay tuned I’m Nate Valline with natevalline.com
welcome back to my channel as I mentioned in this video I’m going to go
over whether or not you should script your YouTube videos now quickly if you
move to my channel make sure you hit that big red button and subscribe that
way you won’t miss out on any of my great videos on how to make money online
how to get your side hustle on or even just how to improve your skills as a
marketer now let’s get into this should you or shouldn’t you script your YouTube
videos well this is something that if you look online you can find reasons for
it and against it a lot of the big youtubers you know you’ll hear them
saying don’t script do it one one take you know make sure you just gotta let it
flow be yourself everything like that but then you also come across some that
also say absolutely script your videos make sure the content is clear and
concise and you’re speaking well and you have a point and you’re not rambling on
and so this is where the challenge lies you know when you look at these
established video creators they have the knowledge the skills the experience that
they can produce a video produce content and know what they want to say and how
to project that in a clear concise way now as a beginner this might not be so
easy you know for myself I have found that when I was getting started
scripting my videos was a big help even to this day some depending on the
video content that I use or that I produce I may end up scripting my videos
but some others I may just free-flow kind of like this one here so kind of
depends on the content of my what makes me decide if I don’t want to
script it or not you know like I said scripting in your video it allows you to
have a clear direction in your video you can think about how you want to present
your content what you want to say key points that you want to touch on without
rambling and losing your viewers as you discuss your topics on the other hand
you you know being when you script a video it’s easy to come across like
you’re a robot that you are reading from a script and that’s something you don’t
want to do you don’t want to read from a script or make it obvious that you’re
reading from a script and that’s why so many people say you just you just gotta
let it free flow you just gotta speak your mind
one take let your personality show which there is a lot of validity to that you
want to show your people show your audience who you are that’s how you
connect with them and that’s how you build a rapport with them but being able
to free flow you’ve got to be able to have that self-control that willpower to
present your information in a clear concise way without rambling on and so
sometimes when you’re just getting started it may be better to script your
video and then as you get more comfortable in the in front of the
camera and you get to understand your content a little bit more to the so that
you can know what you want to present and how to get across then you can move
away from scripting so that’s kind of my thoughts on should you or shouldn’t you
script your video but what I’m going to show you now is how the tool that I use
to help help me produce videos when I script a video and so when I script it I
don’t use a sheet of paper I don’t have no cards off to the side but what I do
do is on my cell phone I got an app that is a teleprompter and so
I will go through I’m going to go through the steps on what I do how I use
the app and show you exactly how easy it can be to set up your own teleprompter
so hold on here and I’ll get into my computer and start sharing my cell phone
so you can see my cell phone here and what I’m going to do let’s go to the app
so the app that I use is called Selvi and it’s this one here and so this is a
great app it is available on Android as well as iTunes and it is super easy to
use it’s a free app you can just download it straight from whatever store
you your phone uses and basically once you get it downloaded you’re ready to
rock and roll and it’s as easy as you click this create new text button and
window pops up you put in your text title this is this is a test there are
limited characters to the title so your titles don’t want to be too long just
enough so that you can identify what text or script you are using and then
you can start typing right into the phone or into the app and create your
script I can’t talk and type a script at the same time this is Nate welcome to my
video my video so you can create your your script directly into your phone on
the fly as simple as that now there is also a hack that you can do to make it a
little easier to create your script and to do that I’m just going back out of
that I’m gonna open up I’m gonna go to Google
and open up if you go to Google Docs whoops so go to do Google Docs and here
you can type up your script so you just create a blank document I have our
pre-prepared one and so here’s just a little test grip and you know I have
write a couple paragraphs here so you what you do is you type out your script
into Google Docs much easier to type on a keyboard or eat you can also use
Google Docs voice to text feature which makes it quite easy if you go to tools
and then voice typing then you just hit this click to speak now let’s go down a
little line so this is a test that now allow that Google will type everything I
stay then I’ll click the microphone to stop it and you can see it works pretty
well I’m just gonna delete that so if you’re not much of a typer you can at
least do the voice to text and create your script that way so once you have it
created in Google Docs what you would do I’m gonna go back to my phone here and I
am going to go to my Google Drive on my phone I’m sure there’s an Apple way to
get to it here’s my test dock I’ll open it up and all you have to do now is copy
and paste this if I can get this to copy for me
there you go select it all copy now I’ll go back to the app I’ll create new do my
title test script and then I’ll paste this in here now unfortunately it
doesn’t always paste cleanly like it was in Google Docs so I what I do
my oh my own OCD tendencies come out at this point I just go through and clean
these so that there are some spaces in here I have found it helps when I’m
reading through my script I’ll clean up this the line sentence lines etc just do
just a little cleanup just so it looks better and is easier to read while I go
through this so it’s just that easy you know to create your script when you’re
done you just hit the check mark and then you’re done
I’ll give you your word count and everything like that so now say now
you’re ready to do your script so you just tap on it and here you are so you
can see here’s the video and so it’s very easy so right in the middle you
have your teleprompter and if you tap and hold the blue dot you can drag it to
wherever on your screen and then the if you tap and hold the blue square you can
resize this window and then I’ll scroll this text all the way down and then that
way when I hit record it’ll give me a second to start reading and you can
place this window close to your camera lens you can place it wherever on your
phone that makes it look natural and easy to read you can also turn it
horizontal so let’s scroll this up so you can see and it so well if you zoom
horizontally it’ll be the right way for the text but for this demonstration I’ll
just leave it upright you can also change the the window color
background you can change but there is a premium filter so you can change the
text color the script or the font text you can change that that might be a
premium feature as well the speed at which it Scrolls you can change that and
so to test it you just tap the blue circle and I’ll start running and you
can slow it way down or speed it way up all on the fly I’ll tap the blue again
and I’ll stop it and I can scroll to where I want and then the TT you can
change the font size to whatever you’d like and then HD you can set what kind
of screen you want you can record straight off your phone so if you’re
doing a Facebook live or YouTube live video but you want a little script you
can do it right on the fly that way or you can just run it as a straight
teleprompter and record off your normal camera or your webcam on your computer
so basically all you do when you want to start going you can click the big blue
button down here and I’ll just start recording and I’ll scroll through hi
this is new welcome back in this video I’m going to show you how to use cell V
to script your videos that simple hit the red button it’ll stop recording and
there you go or if you’re just using it as a straight up teleprompter you just
hit the little blue button in the middle of screen and it’ll start running it’ll
run through and that’s your script that’s your teleprompter super easy to
use I use it quite a bit as you can see here’s a bunch of previous scripts that
I’ve done and all very helpful and simple to use
definitely have helped with my video creation and content creation so I hope
this video was helpful hopefully it gives you a little bit more of an idea
or comfort in front to get in front of the camera because you know that’s where
you’re gonna connect the quickest and easiest ly easiest ly easiest that word
but with your audience and start really building that rapport and Trust and
following to your content so if you’ve got some value out of this video if you
