How To Make Sure People Watch Your Videos From Start To End Without Clicking Away!

I call this… “Management Of Expectations”…

It’s a powerful concept that my first ever manager explained to me just after I got out of university. At the time I really did not fully grasp what he was talking about, but over the years, I’ve come to realize how incredibly important it is to “manage people’s expectations”.

Inside today’s video I talk about how you can use this very same concept to get people to watch your videos from start to end!

  1. [..YouTube..] Thanks for good tips, Gideon. Like it, much.

  2. [..YouTube..] @MichaelDadona No probs Michael! That’s what I’m here for!

  3. Wow! I am a HUGE fan of Lost! Sad its over but it was a spectacular finale.

    I remember this tip from the Killer Youtube Strategies course. I have not implemented yet but I think it is time to do so. Thanks for the friendly reminder Gideon! I have finally started to post a lot of videos and they are only going to get better ;)

      Too right!

      Action is always the keyword in any undertaking :)

      And if you can combine that action with intelligent direction, you become a vector, instead of just a scaler (a scalar only has magnitude, but a vector has both magnitude AND direction!)

      All the best!

  4. Thanks Gideon for providing useful link which led me to this article about “EZS3 Sitemap Generator”. I’d learned new things, there.

  6. Hey Gideon,

    I have a question that does not really have to do with the above video but its one I am sure a lot of people wonder…

    What is the rule on using music for videos? I buy my songs from iTunes and use the music on my videos. Do I have to say who the music is by and where I got it in the video at all? Is the video description ok for that? Or should I not worry at all as long as I legally paid for the song?

    Thanks!

    -Toad

  7. [..YouTube..] another cracking tip thank you

  8. Gideon,

    Congratulations on the birth of your daughter! And as always, great content.

    I have two techinical questions. How do you change the zoom on the videos while in the middle of the video. Are they seperate cuts, are you using some fancy software, or multiple cameras….or something I can’t even imagine?

    Second question is, to put the points at the top of your videos, what software are you using?

    Thank you,
    Rachel

    • Gideon Shalwick

      Hey Rachel

      Great questions!

      Surprisingly, what I do is actually really simple :)

      I only used one camera. But then during the editing phase, I do a “digital” zoom in. This basically means that I make a cut in the timeline, zoom in for a while using the software, make another cut, and zoom back out again with the software.

      Pretty easy really!

      The software I use is ScreenFlow (on Mac), but you can do the same thing on Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD (http://www.sonycreativesoftware.com/moviestudiohd).

      And as for the text, pretty straight forward too – it’s just a function inside the editing software.

      Very soon now, I will be releasing Rapid Video Blogging, my brand new course that shows you how to do all this stuff in fine detail!

      Talk soon!

    thx buddy !!!!! :)

  11. Congrats on the birth of your baby girl – she really was in a hurry!
    I am really interested to learning the answers to Rachel’s questions.

    • Gideon Shalwick

      Thanks Sharon!

      See my answers above for Rachel :)

  12. Gideon,

    This makes sense. Give people more than what they expect in your video and it will keep them coming back for more, so to speak.

  13. [..YouTube..] That is an interesting concept Gideon. I can relate. Closing the loop but opening a new one. Thanks for sharing value and expertise. Jeff in Utah

  14. [..YouTube..] Making money online can be frustrating… Especially when all the guides out there are just using you to make money from you!

    Luckily, there’s a guy giving out a free guide about making a website, and creating revenue from it

    The guide is 100% free, and he also gives you his email adress so you can email him if you have problems!

    Get it now at:

  19. [..YouTube..] Really got a lot out of your free ebook at the url you list in your comments. Thanks so much! I clicked on a link to one of your videos in the ebook, but it’s one that isn’t here anymore, so I found your channel and subscribed.

    I love this idea in this video, will use it!
