I’ve read time and again here on the Forums that it’s best to have videos on gigs. Fiverr also pushes for it whenever a gig is created. I agree with the reasoning, but still have a question – What if the quality of the video is bad? The cam I currently have at my disposal is a cheap one I got at a pawn shop a year or so ago*, so the video is grainy. The audio is good and since my gigs are nearly all audio-related, I hope that’s a plus in my direction, but I still can’t help but wonder if the poor quality of my videos may negate any positivity gained from having them.
*I also cannot get a better cam at this time, nor is borrowing or renting one an option. Neither do I feel the need to beg, borrow, or steal (not literally, just saying) a cam just to do a handful of videos for my gigs. Also, I prefer to have myself performing the actual gig that I’m advertising, so I don’t want a picture video that, while relevant, is less personal.
