So, you’re hyped about the video. You see the value and you’re excited about the impact it’s going to make on your business. Awesome! Then it comes time to record… All of a sudden you can think of about 100 reasons as to why video isn’t really that great after all. Yes, you are not so camera comfortable.
We get it. And you’re not alone. Getting in front of the camera to record your first personalized video feels intimidating. A daunting task that you feel you need to psych yourself up for. Even the pros here at Covideo had to get over the hump of creating their first video (and we keep them around, just for fun).
But, like everything, practice makes perfect. Once you get the first 5-10 videos under your belt it will begin to come naturally, and before you know it you’re clicking start without thinking twice, recording your message, and getting on with the rest of your day – in under 1-minute flat.
To get you to this spot a bit faster, we wanted to share some of our tips for getting comfortable on camera. WARNING: after reading these you will have no more excuses and will be forced into video-making success.
Lastly, and most importantly, remember that it’s not about being perfect. It’s about being real. Conveying your personality, sincerity, and expertise in an authentic way will open far more doors than a stiff, unanimated version of yourself.
So forget the lights, forget the camera, and take action. Happy recording!
PRO TIP: Not sure where to start? Record and send some thank you videos to existing or previous clients. You’ve already won their trust and their business, and everyone likes to hear that they’re appreciated! We hope this helps you become more camera comfortable.
