Public speaking in front of an audience of more than 5 people is hard enough. More than 5 is down right debilitating!
And now to ask you to put that on video, where it lives FOREVER!
FORGET ABOUT IT!
Yes, take all your blood. As long as you don’t have to create a video!
Are you afraid of the camera?
If you are, that’s when you bring in someone who is inspiring and encouraging. Someone who understands where you are coming from and what your audience wants to hear and see. Someone with ideas that will be comfortable and enjoyable for you to produce.
I’m taking a break from our typical “how to get published” webseries for Halloween. Instead, watch my sales promotion halloween video below. You can consider doing something similar for the end of the year holidaies. It’s not so scary of an option. It’s an animated way for you to take advantage of what a video will do for you, your product/service, and company:
- improving your search juice
- building rapport with your clients
- earning trust from prospective clients through friendliness, cleverness, and flexibility
Watch this sales promotion video using a Halloween theme. Notice:
- No voice (of yours)
- No moving image (of you)
- Circumstance viewer is feeling (afraid of the camera)
- How the viewer is helped (what Viditude will do for you)
- How the viewer will feel afterwards (no longer afraid)
- Contact information (call or email Viditude now)
How this video was made
I decided to make the above video two days before Halloween. Doesn’t provide a great deal of time to think, script, design, create.
I went to VideoHive and purchased this After Effects template. This particular template was well designed and very detailed. Even with my skill in script writing, photoshop, and after effects…this took 14 hours (including rendering time) to make. Keep that in mind when you purchase a template for editing.
Don’t let that stop you. Just hire an expert (or the actual creator of the template) and give them enough time to add you to their busy schedule.
So, what are you afraid of?
You can be afraid of ghosts, goblins, vampires & zombies. But please, don’t be afraid of creating videos (or of parrots)!
