I’m sharing tips today about how to do quick video tips for your business. They can be like the Video Biz Tips I share with you. Or your videos can be another income stream for you.

There are so many people in business who are NOT doing video yet and I’m urging you to get started NOW! It’s past time for you to embrace video. This post is definitely for you.

If you are already doing video in your business, these video biz tips may still be helpful to you because as you know, it’s not always easy to come up with things to talk about.

First of all, you need to get past the notion that you have to wait until you have everything in place and it’s just right. You can video, off the cuff. I regularly get many revenue producing ideas for myself, my clients, and my mastermind members. And, just the other day, I did a video to share some of the ideas I had while in the shower.

Video can be used to share info and tips. It can also be used as a revenue producing resource. If there is something you know or know how to do and you can teach others, why not record it on video and create a program or online course.

Video is an AMAZING resource. It’s free to use for marketing purposes – well it is right now.

Are you on my email list? I don’t send a lot of emails, but when I do send them, I share a couple of tips that I think you will be interested in. Make sure you get on my email list, if you’re not already, because I’ve created a new program that will be starting soon and I’ll be sharing the info to those who are paying attention to my emails. It’s an online course where you’ll learn a lot of revenue generating tips, most of them are online. You’ll learn how to reach more people without working so hard.

“She has always been there for me…”

 “I first met Katrina back in 2005 when I was starting up my business in Folsom. She gave me so much information and ideas that I have been continuously using them for the last 8 years! Of course I consulted with her since that time, but one of the things that I am so grateful for is that she is still here!  Still helping people grow their business.  Still offering her services and willing to help out when needed.  She helped me not only with my local hypnotherapy services, but also helped me launch my hypnosis CDs and mp3 recordings on a national scale. I can’t tell you how many times over the last 8 years I have been frustrated by services that have come and gone and now offer no support or encouragement.  She has always been there for me and I greatly appreciate the fact that her steady support and services will be there in the future as well.  In fact, I received so much pertinent data from her that I am still implementing what she suggested 8 years ago. Not that I have been ignoring what she originally said, it’s just that she gave me so many valuable insights and suggestions that it could take years to implement all of them.  And that was a great way to grow my business at a rate that suited my needs.  There are so many aspects to having your own business that it is comforting to know that when I am ready to take the next step that she is there with the knowledge and the plan to help me achieve those goals.  If you are ready to move forward with your business, please give her a call and let her help you become even more successful.” ~David GreenwoodGreenwood Hypnotherapy http://www.GreenwoodHypnotherapy.com

I hope you’ve caught the last couple articles in this series, even if you haven’t started doing video yet in your business – for marketing, your website, tips, engaging clients and more. This seriously is something you don’t want to ignore anymore. And if you’re already doing videos in your business, you may catch a few tips here that can enhance your videos, capture you more viewers and convert more paying customers!

In my business and marketing coaching business, I hear a lot of excuses as to why someone isn’t or doesn’t want to do video yet in their business. I do. I hear it all!

But that doesn’t mean there isn’t a way to get around those obstacles or fears that you may have and learn how to maximize what you’re doing on video to get the biggest bang for your buck so-to-speak.

The 3 biggest obstacles or excuses that I hear entrepreneurs make about recording or promoting videos:

  1. Mindset – you don’t think you look or sound good on video (article 1 of 3)
  2. Strategy – you aren’t sure what to say, share or promote on video (article 2 of 3)
  3. Systems – you aren’t that tech savvy or aren’t sure what software or technology to use to record your video and get it out there

In this article, the two preceding it, I share a bunch of tips for combating each one of these so hopefully this helps you get started using video now!

Tips for getting comfortable using the technology is always a big deterrent to getting started doing videos in business. If you want to learn how to get the right stuff without spending a mint and what else to do with your videos once they are created and uploaded, try these suggestions:

  • Look on your computer or chosen electronic device first for:
      1. Quicktime Player, iMovie or some other recording software – I love and use Quicktime Player on my Mac desktop all the time, it’s very easy to use. Download it for free for Mac or PC.
      2. YouTube easy upload buttons, apps or plug-ins – I actually just upload my videos directly from my desktop to YouTube first, then I can easily grab the embed code from there to add it to my website or some other webpage if necessary. You can also record directly on YouTube, no download required.
      3. iMovie also allows you to edit your videos – but frankly it’s a bit techy even for me so I just don’t edit my videos, I do them until they’re “good enough”.
      4. Photoshop will allow you to add graphics or words and links to the top of your video or create an image to go with your video with clickable links but this software is a bit expensive and more designer friendly.
  • Don’t buy anything too expensive right out of the gate for device, camera, webcam, software, program or microphone. Learn what you’re doing, saying and sending first; get comfortable doing videos, come up with a regular strategy and schedule and THEN if you want, invest more in your technology in my opinion. You may just need a nice, reasonably priced microphone, that’s it other than the program to record it, which should be free or included on your computer.
  • Practice with what you have on hand first – your webcam, your smartphone, tablet or laptop, just get comfortable doing video. No one even has to see the first few if you don’t want to but don’t wait for perfect, just get info, tips and yourself out there!
  • Good lighting and sound quality are the most important things say most video viewers. They typically don’t stick around to watch if they can’t hear you, your sound is too low or too garbled. Then a secret to lighting is to bring in a little end table light, take off the lampshade and stick in front of you but behind the camera, or have a window in front of you or some other light source but not behind you. And tilting the camera a bit so it’s looking down at you is better than looking up at you.
  • Try recording with the speaker on your phone or computer first to see if it’s good enough and clear. If not, you can pick up inexpensive microphones that plug into your desktop or laptop for better sound quality, I like the Logitech brand myself.
  • Save all your videos to your computer as well as putting them on YouTube if appropriate.
  • YouTube is for sharing with the world obviously but even sharing tips and content from your articles, ezines, products, events, books and more is good because it will just be snippets of that content that then you can share how to buy or invest in from there.
  • Write a good video title and description on your YouTube page and include a URL at the top of the description so it’s the first thing people see when viewing your videos.
  • Add as many tags as YouTube will let you upon uploading, include your main keywords, your name, business name and topic. Use close to the same tags on each video you upload so more of your videos pull up on the sidebar of each page.
  • Share your videos on social sites too, put it everywhere, no one watches everywhere.
  • Repurpose your video in your email newsletter, post on your blog or video page of your website then write an article about it or transcribe your video and use the written version of it as content too for emails, tweets, posts and more!

 

I RECORDED A VIDEO SHARING MORE ABOUT THIS STEP – TECHNOLOGY & SYSTEMS – CLICK THE VIDEO BELOW TO WATCH !!

Remember, your promotional videos only have to be 2-3 minutes unless they are training videos or videos for regular clients. Longer videos are ok for some people who really are interested in the content but not typically for new people just being introduced to you.

The key is to just get started. Record one and send it out to a few clients or friends that you trust to review it and give you feedback.Perfection is NOT the best strategy here or you may never get anything done and out.

If you missed the first two articles in this series on Getting Started Using Videos in Business, go check them out. In the first two, I shared:

  • Tips to Make Yourself Look and Feel Better When Recording Video
  • Tips to figure out the Strategy for why and what you’re going to do with your videos or say on your videos

I give you the steps, the implementation cheat sheets basically on how to do this, what to say, when to send stuff, how to send it and how to even delegate it all so that you can concentrate on getting MORE prospects and making more sales.

What are you waiting for? Seriously! I want to help you get started (or refine and monetize the use of) using videos in your business and marketing…

Please don’t pass by this article if you haven’t started doing video yet in your business – for marketing, your website, tips, engaging clients and more. This seriously is something you don’t want to ignore anymore. And if you’re already doing videos in your business, you may catch a few tips here that can enhance your videos, capture you more viewers and convert more paying customers!

In my business and marketing coaching business you can imagine that I hear a lot of excuses as to why someone isn’t or doesn’t want to do video yet in their business. I do. I hear it all!

But that doesn’t mean there isn’t a way to get around those obstacles or fears that you may have and learn how to maximize what you’re doing on video to get the biggest bang for your buck so-to-speak.

  2. Strategy – you aren’t sure what to say, share or promote on video
  3. Systems – you aren’t that tech savvy or aren’t sure what software or technology to use to record your video and get it out there

In this article and the following 2 articles, I will share a bunch of tips for combatting each one of these so hopefully this helps you get started using video now!

Tips to Combat the Mindset Resistance – you don’t think you look or sound good on video. If you want to make yourself look or feel better when recording video, try these suggestions:

  • Your Appearance – Do your hair like you would for a night out on the town. Double up on or darken your makeup application so it’s pretty heavy, light makeup hardly shows up at all on video, trust me, it won’t look like you’re Tammy Fay Baker. Use Visine for your eyes if they tend to be red or tired. Focus on under eye makeup too if you tend to have dark circles, use white or light under eye makeup.
  • Your Outfit – Make sure it’s not too busy of a pattern you’re wearing or it will detract from your face. If you’re newer to shooting video, try just shooting from the chest up but if you do choose to stand, watch for slimming outfits or black bottoms and a colored shirt. Black and white shirts tend not to be the best option. Try to accent yourself with fun jewelry that pops if you want to make more of a statement. And scarves hide wrinkled necks if you are concerned about that.
  • Your Surroundings – Your background is important, make sure the props, pictures, walls, artwork, furniture in the frame or in the background are suitable for public viewing. People could judge you on your surroundings for example if you have laundry on the floor or a messy desk, etc. It’s also very strategic to place something that brands your business, yourself or one of your products, books or programs in the back or side of you too.

In fact, I recorded a video about this first step –>>

In the next two articles, I’ll be sharing:

  • Tips for Creating Content for Your Videos
  • Tips for Getting Comfortable with Technology

Please don’t ignore this, take heed to my suggestions and just get started doing some videos. Remember, not that many people in the beginning will even see them so you’re safe! Then just keep getting better and better at them; don’t give up, make this at least a monthly habit!
