Video Making Side Hustles

11 Video Making Side Hustles You Can Start Today

Have you always dreamed of being a big time video producer, but somehow life got in the way? Same. It is still possible to make big money with videography if you have the drive and a bit of creativity. 

We live in a video driven world. With more of our shopping and consumer decisions being made online, videos are more important than ever to build trust, demo products, and deliver a brand experience. In most doctors' offices, real estate offices and car dealerships you will see a looping brand video being shown on large monitors. Manufacturers, dentists, real estate agents, and authors aren't video making experts, though. They hire videographers to create the videos they need to get the results they want. 

If you want to take your amateur video making to the next level, here are 11 ways to start stacking cash with a video making side hustle.

1. Customer Testimonial Videos

Positive testimonials and product reviews are excellent selling tools. Consumers trust the opinions of their peers. Most businesses do not know where to start when it comes to filming customer testimonials to be displayed on their website. That is where you come in!

2. CEO/Founder Messages

Whether a CEO has a message to deliver to his staff or to his customers, a video is much more personal and heartfelt. A service for CEOs to quickly film, edit and publish their video message could be a popular side hustle.

3. Product Videos

We have talked about how to create powerful product videos, but the truth is that many ecommerce business owners either don't have the skill level or don't have the time to put product videos together. Offer to shoot product videos for ecom owners and even local businesses and free up some of their time.

4. Educational and Tutorial Videos

This type of video is especially useful for software products and apps. Combining screenshots with real world shots helps users understand how to use the digital product and improves the user experience. 

5. Training Videos

Research explains that employees internalize systems and processes better when they learn about them through video. Create a series of training videos to teach employees about procedures, new products, or systems.

6. Brand Videos

Brand videos have grown to become a necessity for corporations. These videos set the tone of the company culture, mission, vision and objectives. A brand video can make or break a first impression. Brand video makers are in high demand.

7. Book Trailers

Similar to movie trailers, book trailers are growing in popularity as one of the best ways to launch a new book. Book trailers are expected to have cinematographic elements and compel the purchase of the book.

Contracting with local artists to film their concerts or art exhibit is a great way to help your local art community while earning some side hustle income.

 9. Real Estate Videos

Many times the real estate video sells the property.
