If you search the internet for any length of time. It’s not too hard to see that everything is going towards video.
YouTube started over 10 years ago. and this was the only website primarily for videos. YouTube is the second biggest search engine, with Google as the first. Don’t forget YouTube is owned by Google. You can also use your YouTube videos to promote your business.
YouTube is a great place to upload your videos. If you don’t already have a YouTube channel. Click on the link to help you get started. I put together some short videos that will take care of creating your YouTube channel basics.
Since then the other social sites have been following YouTube’s lead. Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat.
Everyone today does video.
The video isn’t something of the past. It’s also not something of the future. The video is here right now. It’s here to stay. Gone are the days of hiding behind a camera. Don’t think you can hide behind a camera with those emails.
You have to start getting comfortable in front of a camera. The faster you can get comfortable in the front of the camera the better off you will be. How do you do this?
Everything takes practice. Nobody is born being comfortable in front of a camera. Don’t think for a single second that you’re the only one that’s afraid to do this. We all start at the same level. I’ll admit its weird talking in front of a camera it takes a lot and lots of practice.
What I would do to get started. Use that smartphone that you have. Start doing a daily diary. Keep the videos nice and short to start. You want to do this as many times in the day as possible.
The other thing I want you to start getting used to. Do all your videos in one take. Don’t worry about the mistakes you make. The idea is to just keep going. Just speak from the heart. Talk to the camera like your best friend is sitting down with you.
Let’s talk about your energy level as you’re doing the video. Here again, You have the two extremes. Someone may be a little reserved and quiet. The other extreme, somebody that’s overly excited and more or less yelling as they’re doing the video. I don’t think I have to tell you. But you want to be somewhere in the middle. That’s the sweet spot. From a scale of 0 to 10 for enthusiasm, You should be right around a seven. You want your enthusiasm to be just a little bit higher than your viewer. Just pick that enthusiasm up a notch.
This video explains what I did to get over my camera phobia.
