Someone out there needs to hear your message. It's very important that you share it. In this video I talk more about the why's and how's of sharing your message.

04:42

The people that are going to connect to you will connect to you. Those people, your people are not worried about what you look or sound like. I talk more about it in this lecture.

05:57

The overall look of your video is important, it should line up with your brand. In this video, you will l earn how to create a look that works for you.

03:41

One of the things I hear all the time is that people don't want to get in front of the camera because they don't like the way they look or sound. I've got some help for that in this video. It's time to get your message out to the world!

03:23

One of the things I see the most, is people not starting out their videos with confidence, or even presenting with confidence. If you want to keep people from clicking off your videos, come out with a strong, confident opening, this video will show you how.

Section 3: Great Content
4 pages

Content is important and the structure of it even more important. Here is a guide for you to see how to organize your content so you don't miss any valuable information and don't over use stories and fillers in video content.

03:53

I'm asked all of the time about length. Length and content go together and should be concise and cover your most important message. Learn about length of your videos in this clip.

06:08

Missing a clear introduction and conclusion can dramatically effect your "click off" rate in the beginning, your call to action in the end and the overall understanding of your material by your audience. Don't miss these important tips on introduction and conclusion.

06:04

The first line of your introduction is perhaps the most important. Make sure you get it right, right out of the box.

Introduction Credibility
03:19
03:37

The thesis statement in the introduction is one of the most important parts, where you tell us what your going to tell us.

02:39

By following a clear outline that you've created based on most valuable content, you will create a flow of material that makes perfect sense to your audience. Learn how to create the best outline full of the most pertinent information in this video.

04:07

The first line of the conclusion, is really the transitional phrase off the last body section. This video will show you how to make a strong conclusion.

02:52

Crucial for your listener to stay engaged. Transitional phrases are the guide posts that tell us where we are going next. But, they also can keep you grounded!

07:48

Often times it's tricky to present dense material, primarily because you know it so well. In this video you'll learn how to present dense material that may make sense to you, but means nothing to us. Keep us from clicking off!

05:14

The key to a great presentation lies somewhat in the notes or script that you've crafted to guide you while you in front of the camera. In this video, you'll learn how to craft a script that is just right for you.

Section 4: A Smooth Presentation
05:22

Many individuals get nervous when speaking, in front of the camera or live. In fact, nerves can keep people from creating videos. There are some great techniques to help you deal with nerves in this video.

03:19

Practice can make or break you in front of the camera. In this video, you'll learn some valuable practice tips.

02:44

Most people try to over deliver difficult information. Our audience can not always get it so then we start working down to the small part of the funnel to make them understand. Ideally, we start at the bottom of the funnel and work up, especially with dense or technical material.

03:19

Far to often we say much more than our listener needs to hear, far to much. One of the most important skills you can learn is how to bottom line it, take just the core that will benefit your listener and deliver that. The stories and examples we have are great, but are they necessary?

03:19

"um" the great annoyance. Learn about "um" and how to stop saying it in this video.

04:45

The biggest complaint I hear from presenters and audience is about people reading slides and visual aids. Learn why it's a bad thing to read your visual aids and the proper way to work with them for success.

Section 5: Captivating Voice
05:03

My biggest complaint in the videos and webinars I watch is people block speaking. You want to be slow and articulate so people can hear and understand you, but often times the result becomes "block speak" and it's a killer to your video success. In this video, learn about block speak and how to NOT fall prey.

04:57

Everyone knows they need to articulate to be understood, well, most people do. But, often times, people don't know exactly what that means or how to do. In this video you'll learn all about articulation, how to execute it and why it's so essential.

03:56

Part of articulation is getting the words out. In order to do this, you have to learn to drop your jaw.

02:36

A fantastic tool for making your voice captivating and engaging is found in the technique of elongation. Learn all about this bit and how to use it to your advantage.

07:15

Hands down the most important voice tool you can use to create engaging videos that get results. In this video you'll learn the how's and why's about stressing words.

02:39

In this audio I will give examples of what it sounds like when you stress certain words in your delivery and when you don't. Adding stress is essential for your listener to to be engaged.

05:01

If anything, people usually over pause or under pause, meaning, they never pause. Pausing is a valuable power tool that can really set up great bits in your video that will increase your conversion rates and help you meet other goals. In this video you'll learn all about this technique and how to use it.

04:42

By alternating volume at various points in your presentation, you create a captivating voice. Learn how to use your volume variations to get your maximum value.

01:09

In this audio you will hear the difference between adding loud and soft along with your moderate volume for effect and what happens if you don't.

07:56

Speed is another variable that can add interesting and engaging quality to your presentation. Learn all about how/when to alternate fast and slow to be more captivating on camera.

04:02

Just like slow, when you add in fast, you engage your audience and captivate them more. Learn the how's and where's of adding in bits of fast in this video.

02:38

Once you have your pace set, you can then add in fast and slow bits for effect and engagement. In this video, we'll talk about the power of adding in slow.

05:50

Pitch play is tricky but can be quite valuable. In this video you will learn the power of pitch adjustments and how/when to execute them to maximize your success.

Section 6: Non-Verbal
05:11

It's essential that you know where to look when your presenting on camera and using a script. Often times, people don't know this and so they loose out on the engagement piece, building a relationship with their audience through eye contact, even on the other side of the screen. In this video, you'll learn the essentials of how to use your script and where to look.

03:45

The camera adds 10 pounds, you've heard that, but it also magnifies all of your movements. It's essential that you know how to use your face and head and not over or under move. Learn the balance that will give you the best result right here in this video.

05:55

Often times this can be a deal breaker in videos. I see countless individuals not know what to do with their hands or over do gestures to the point of distraction. This video will teach you the balance of using gestures and how to create gestures that are interesting and mean something.

03:24

Everyone has something that they do, it's called idiosyncratic movement and it can be very distracting. Learn how to find out what yours is and even more importantly to get rid of it while you are in front of the camera.

03:19

In this video, I'll show you some tips on stretching and doing isolations that will help warm up your body, relax you and improve your overall appearance and speaking.

03:43

At the end of the day, after you've contemplated all of this technique, you want to apply it and get used to it so you can present with a natural delivery style. It's obvious, on camera, when your tense and forced. Learn how to delivery with a natural style and flow.

04:36

It can be a great idea to warm up your voice and body so it's not so stiff. Warming up is simply doing some stretching, especially of your face, making some sounds to get the croaks out of your voice and getting some good breathing in to get you relaxed. In this video I'll talk more about warming up.

Attached you will find one of my favorite voice exercises to warm up with.

01:01

One of the big pieces that people forget when they make their videos is to have fun and smile. I know you get so bogged down in getting right but a smile, a little fun and a lot of passion will go a long way.

04:00

Thank you for taking this course! All of the information found in the videos and activities will no doubt help you to create better videos that sell more, teach more, make more of an impact.
