Like writing a paragraph, editing a video must also have three parts. These are the introduction, body and conclusion. Introduction is like a short teaser of what will be watched, body is the real story, and conclusion is like the highlights of everything you’ve shown so far.

Just try to plan before you edit. You can write a script actually. In professional video editing world, there are script writers who are already doing this and video editors will just based the editing on the script.
Just be artistic specially in the introduction and conclusion. Minimize special effects however in the body. Try to put some music videos placing the cut of every shot in the bit of the song. Shall I say, let the videos dance with the music.
Try to place some narrations, background musics, and sound effects too. For the transition, just use cut, dissolve, and fade to make it look professional. Avoid too much special effects and wacky transitions.
In short, be artistic but make it simple. Let the viewers watch the video itself and not the way you edited it. After you’re done in your editing, try to review it carefully in case there are some mistakes you made. Don’t forget to save your project often too.
Video editing does a lot to fixed some imperfections of videos too. However, video shooting must be done well. The video of the video does not really come from the editing. Rather, it comes from the shooting. So do a good job during the shooting and editing will surely be good as well. Cheers!
