‘How to’ and ‘Review’ videos are becoming a really popular part of what we do
The DIY Doctor channel on You Tube is packed full of useful tool reviews, so if you are thinking of replacing your cordless drill or investing in a wet and dry vacuum, why not check out what we have to say?
They are completely independent reviews of tools and products that any DIY or home improvement enthusiast might want to buy. Our boss Mike Edwards tests most of the tools (unless they are gardening tools – he is not a hypocrite!) and his style is blunt and honest.
Video Tool Review section
We also have a video tool review section on DIY Doctor, this gives you a written round up as well as the featured video. The beauty of video tool reviews is that you can actually see the tools in action on screen before you buy.
In the video tool review section we give an impartial review of the product, point out the pros and cons, tell you whether we like it, and why, and give it a star rating so you can easily compare similar products. Then we then leave it up to you to decide.
‘How To’ videos make learning new DIY tasks easier
The other brilliant use for You Tube is the ‘How To’ videos we produce. Videos are often the easiest ways to learn new home improvement tasks, and we always welcome your suggestions. So if you can’t find the video you want to see just let us know – leave a comment here on the blog or use the ‘contact us’ button on the main website.
DIY Doctor is invited to give talks at trade shows where we give advice on home improvement jobs like plastering, plumbing and tiling. We video the talks so you don’t have to miss them even if you can’t make it to the exhibition centres.
A bit of fun with DIY
In addition to the serious ‘how to’ and tool review videos we also add in some that are just a bit of fun, like this beautiful DIY Christmas tree that CEO Mike Edwards designed and built in our film studio to show you what magical things can be made out of basic building materials.
We were delighted with the response to this fun video (over 600,000 views so far!) and we are asking him to plan his next seasonal video. We will upload it to You Tube as soon as inspiration strikes – so why not follow the DIY Doctor You Tube channel and you will be the first to know about his latest brilliant project.
