An overview of the importance of online video, the challenges it can present, and the 3 primary steps to creating them consistently and successfully.

Section 2: Planning

You can use the HASRA formula to quickly and consistently create compelling videos that people will take action on. Learn it and you'll save hours of time.

Section 3: Pre-production

Planning and creating a script in advance will save you hours - heck, probably even DAYS! - of time. You can reduce the odds have having to "redo" your efforts by doing it right the first time.


For a minimal investment you can vastly improve the visual and audio quality of your videos. This video shows you the best stuff to get.


This video shows you simple tricks and tips you can use to sound and look your best.

Section 4: Do the Hangout

A "hangout" is Google's free tool that enables you to easily create YouTube videos without the need for any complicated software. This takes you step-by-step through the process of starting one.


Learn these basics of navigating around a hangout and you'll save yourself the frustration of sorting it out once you're it.


Making a hangout "live" means you're both broadcasting it to the world and also recording it to YouTube. This video shows you how to do that.

Section 5: Post Production

You can "tighten" up your video by using YouTube's built-in editing tools. It's amazing how simple it is.


The final step is to make sure your video is easy to find! The way you do that is by filling in the title & description, and also create tags for your keywords.
