About the Episode:

It’s the year of the video – we heard that in 2018, in 2019, and now in 2020. That means video isn’t going anywhere, and it’s a critical tool for your business. And while you need a professional sales videos, there’s something special about the turn-on-your-camera-and-just-start-filming videos.

The Benefits of Video

Posting these videos on social media, whether they be live or pre-recorded, allows your audience to feel more connected with you in the moment. It closes the gap between student and teachers and allows your audience to feel more like peers.

Overcoming Hesitancy

Even if you’re ready to start using videos to promote yourself on LinkedIn, you might be hesitant. Being in front of a camera tends to make people self-conscience. Sometimes they feel like they can’t handle it and don’t have the talent. Hear this… talent is a myth.

Sarah Michelle Brown teaches that you have to practice to get better. Who cares if your first videos aren’t good! You’ll get better as you go. Just show up as yourself.

It might feel awkward at first, but once you get used to being on video, you’ll see the benefits. Posting your videos on social media like LinkedIn will help your audience to feel less alone and make meaning connections.

Listen to this episode to learn more about making your first video, myths about being on camera, and the benefits video will bring your business.
