🎬📱Is this how you feel when you think of getting on camera?
Everyone feels the same. Putting yourself out there in the world, it's bloomin' scary.
But becoming a face of your biz is a awesome way to add personality and authenticity to what you do & connect with your customers.
To overcome those fears and actually get it done how about: 🙏😀Asking for help. Whether it’s filming, brainstorming ideas, doing your make up being part of a team will make you accountable, it fun and get it done. 📱Preparation. Think about what you’re going to say, write bullet points and say the words aloud to run through it. Does it make sense? Is it as succinct as you can make it? Forget fancy words, or phrases to impress, be you. 👚Look the part. There are no hard and fast rules about what to wear, but know your business and your customers and dress for them, casual or smart. Be “presentable” not a presenter, check yourself in the mirror, remove the spinach from your teeth and control that fly-away hair. 😲👍Rehearse. NO ONE gets it right first go, so be gentle and expect many many takes. The more you practice, the more you’ll lock in the words and the more natural your presentation will be. 😲 Delivery. Avoid autocue unless you’re a seasoned pro; it’s hard to look down the lens and to NOT to look like you’re reading (Which you will be). Instead imagine you’re chatting to just ONE NICE person and be conversational rather than presentery. Start with a smile, don’t rush and use your hands for emphasis. Nothing beats a relaxed, natural, authentic delivery of information. 📱🎬🎤Recording. Sure try n record your whole spiel in one go, but that’s pretty unrealistic. Instead chunk it into easy to memorise segments and edit together. 😬🤮💕 🤷🏼♂️🤷🏽♀️ Realize that people don’t care. Well they do but in a good way. Rather than judging you on what you look or sound like, most likely they’ll like what you say. Ignore your inner critic and push on; no one will know how many mis-takes, stumbles n hiccups it took.
Go on give it a go!
