Are you a rockstar at making videos?
Do you sizzle when you’re on screen?
Does the camera just “love” you?
If you’re this course creating unicorn, move along. What I’ve got you don’t need. Seriously, scram.
However, if you’re like almost every single person ever, I have a little secret to share about video.
Most people assume that the opposite of good video is bad video.
Most people are wrong.
Bad video exists, but it doesn't get watched. Bad video is "off" video. It’s video people won’t even watch.
In all my years in broadcasting, and now, when I work with my clients, I tell them that my secret to good video is avoiding what I call the “uns”. There are five of them.
I spent nearly 20 years as a broadcast news anchor, reporter and producer. And yet I was terrified — terrified — of public speaking. You can take one guess at how someone afraid of public speaking looks on camera. Correct. Not good.
You can also probably guess how many of the “uns” I used to do? Yep, all of them.
It took a while, but I overcame my own insecurities to become an Emmy award-winning journalist.
I know first-hand what makes a story compelling, and now I help course creators to make sure your message and delivery are on point.
If you're a current course creator or trying to create your first course...then you need to know which “uns” to avoid.
Once you avoid the “uns” you’ll be your best self in front of your ideal clients (and gain some pretty awesome rockstar confidence, grow your audience, sell some courses, get noticed, etc.).
