Guidelines and requirements
Present and show yourself and only yourself

Mention all important and relevant information

To help with good-quality audio, look for a quiet place, make sure there are no ambient noises, and put your phone in flight mode.

Frame your shot for success

Get creative with the editing process

Check out our Video Editing Category for sellers who can help.
You can use additional footage (if needed)
Make sure your face is visible for most of the video.
You’re welcome to use background music if you’d like
Just make sure you’re voice is easily and clearly heard throughout the video, and that you have the rights to use the audio/music.
Practices to avoid
