One of the quickest ways to lose your audience (and come off as unprofessional) is having poor audio in your videos!
- Eliminate all background noise. No kids, no dogs, no garbage trucks. If you can hear it while recording, chances are your learners are going to be distracted by it in your course.
- At the very least, use the earbud/mic combo that comes with your phone – while not the best option, this will still give you better sound quality than recording directly from your phone.
- An inexpensive option is a simple Lavalier microphone that clips onto your shirt. They make several to choose from, just verify that the plug is compatible with whatever phone model you’re using.
