To pause or not to pause?
In the race to keep attention and provide value online, cutting out video pauses may work better for you.
I know that in real life if I pause in a conversation, my wife is in quick as a flash. I’m a slow thinker and naturally have long gaps in my speech. Online - specifically on social - time and attention are currency.
It may take you longer to edit out pauses but that is also a sign of respect to your audience; you respect their time more than yours. That goes a long way to slowly building trust over time.

Remember, there’s no ‘correct’ way to make video anymore.
