Publish An Expert Video

IMPORTANT!

In this Build Your Expert Position block of the Working ON My Business program we are NOT going to cover HOW TO write the book you conceived last week.

If you wish to write your book using my proven method, then head to the Business University course: Write Your Book in 28 Days.

HOWEVER… in the BONUS workshop of September 29, I will share my NEW and very different method to write a very specific expert book (in the direction of: What to Expect When You’re Expecting), answering EXACTLY the questions your audience is asking, in the shortest possible time, and with the minimum effort.

I will give you more details in a couple of weeks, but if you’re interested – make sure to RESERVE the evening of September 29th.

One of the easiest, fastest ways to show your expertise!

There are three main ways that sharing your expertise through video can help your business:

  1. Get discovered more
    Sharing videos demonstrate your expertise while giving you an extra vehicle to communicate to and get seen by potential clients.
    Especially on social media – video is king.

  2. Stand out from your competition
    Are your competitors using video to share their expertise?
    If not, not enough, or not very good – then you have a golden opportunity here.
    If you need to choose between two experts (on any topic) who have the same qualifications, but only one is using video – which one would you choose?
    The expert that has video content who shows they know their stuff, or the one that doesn’t?

  3. Establish trust and connection
    When you demonstrate your expertise in a video, it builds the sense of know, like and trust between you and your potential clients.
    Video gives you an opportunity to tell your story, to provide the viewer an insight into what’s important for you, and why you do what you do.
    Authenticity and transparency are important more than ever when establishing credibility and connection – get that right – and prospects will buy… from YOU.

Video is no longer only one piece of your overall marketing plan. It became the central piece… especially in social media.

These days, if you aren’t creating videos, you’re likely falling behind. 

But don’t get frustrated. For most videos, the more simple and raw it is, the more authentic the content seems … and that’s what really matters to your prospects and clients.

And to get you started…

Let’s start with your MINDSET…

Are You Camera Shy?
Here are 5 tips how to overcome your camera shyness or anxiety:

  1. Know WHY you’re making the video in the first place
    For any video, start by writing down your goal, and then list 3-5 key take-aways you want the viewer to remember.
    Knowing your key points increases your confidence, simplify your message and reduces the chance you’ll be all over the place.

  2. Imagine you’re having a 1-on-1 conversation
    Identifying a specific person you want to talk to takes away the pressure of talking to hundreds of viewers – or zero viewers.
    Even if no one’s watching your videos at first, still imagine how connecting with only one person would make it all worth it.

  3. Shift the focus from yourself to how you can serve others
    Too often we get caught up in our own fears and insecurities that we forget that we have a chance to make a difference in someone’s life with our message.
    You’ll be able to put aside your own nervousness when it’s in service for someone else.

  4. High quality content is more important than production value
    That means you don’t need a fancy set, fancy camera, or fancy wardrobe to show up and deliver something your audience will enjoy.
    Because if what you share is truly helpful, people overlook all of that because they like you and are genuinely interested in what you have to say.

  5. Build up your confidence & consistency first
    Instead of obsessing over stats and views
    When you’re first starting out, give yourself at least a dozen videos to get comfortable and find your style.
    Success for you means showing up when you planned to show up. Analyzing stats and metrics comes later once you have a small library of videos to review.

Easy to say, maybe a little harder to do…

But you’re in the program to grow beyond your comfort zone, don’t you? So… let’s move on…

Set your GOAL for this week…

Here’s a great goal for you:

I am going to publish my first/best expert video so far.

How’s that for a 5-day challenge?

Choose the STRATEGY you will use…

Here is the 5-step process you could follow in order to produce a great expert video:

  1. Find your compelling WHY
    Come up with as many ideas as you can to: WHY is it important for YOU to publish a video on your topic of expertise?

  2. Come up with a list of Frequently Asked Questions
    Those are questions you’re asked often that you know answering them can make a difference for your audience (i.e. potential clients);

  3. Choose one question to answer 
    From the list you created yesterday, choose one question you know you can deliver tons of value on, and come up with the 3-5 main take aways you want your viewers to remember;

  4. Practice in front of the camera
    Watch these few video filming tips:

Then… set up your mobile phone or digital camera and with only the question in mind and the 3-5 main take aways.

Now…

  • Imagine an interviewer is asking you the question;
  • Record yourself answering it (try to keep it to 5 minutes or less);
  • Watch the recording;
  • Make notes of what you can improve;
  • Choose one thing to improve;

Repeat those steps 2-3 more times.

  1. Record your final video
    Make sure you’re dressed up properly for your purpose / audience;
    Choose a quiet (audio as well as background visuals) place, with good light;
    Put your phone or camera on a tripod or a stable surface in the height of your eyes;
    Follow the tips I shared in the above video;
    Record your answer to the question you practiced;
    If you’re happy with the result, congratulate yourself, upload the finished video (minimum or no editing, please), and share it with your subscribers and clients;
    If you’re not happy… do it again… it’s less than 5 minutes…

Ready to get to work?

PLAN your actions in your agenda…

Your next step is to physically plan this process in your agenda.

Plan to invest 10-15 minutes EVERY DAY in the coming 5 days to follow the process above.

AND… You will need to reserve 2-3 hours if the video needs some editing (you can do it cheaply and quickly at Fiverr.com), to create a YouTube channel (if you don’t have one yet) and to send a message about the video to your list.

Now it’s time to IMPLEMENT…

Take 10 minutes, right now, and…

  • Day 1 – come up with at least 10 answers for why do you want to publish a video on your area of expertise;

  • Day 2 – come up with at least 10 specific frequently asked questions you’d love to answer;

  • Day 3choose one question from yesterday’s list and come up with the 3-5 take aways you want your viewers to remember;

  • Day 4 – practice recording the answer to the question a few times… each time learning from watching yourself and improving the next “take”;

  • Day 5  record your final video – but don’t be afraid to make a few takes before you’re satisfied.
  • Feel free to upload the best RAW version to YouTube as UNLISTED (so only people with the link could watch the video), and share the link to the video in the comment box – if you want to get some feedback from WOMB participants.

In your next 2-3-hour Implementation Session – do minimum editing (or let someone else edit your video) just to clean it up a bit – and only if necessary.
If you don’t have a YouTube channel – make one.
And after you uploaded the final version of the video to YouTube – share it with your clients and/or subscribers…

Each day share with us in the comment box your ideas, topics and actions.

My commitment to you…

  • I’m looking forward to read your process and ideas below;

  • I will be there for you on Wednesday to support you with any question, challenge or setback you encounter;

  • I’m looking forward to celebrate your progress and results on Friday (I’m curious to hear the goal(s) and plan you’ll come up with).

Live fully, stay awesome,

Nisandeh

    Day 4 This is my 5th recording to the question “Why should I become an Airbnb host”?

    This is the link ( https://youtube.com/shorts/miJx_Ztww-0?feature=share ) to my first video ever. And eventhough it is very far from perfect I am so happy and proud that I’ve stepped beyond my comfort zone and just did it. I’ve read somewhere that if I worried about how I looked on films I should just forget my own ego and get on with it. This is why I’ve posted this video eventhough it needs a lot of fine tuning

    This is what needs improving
    • I need to look fresh and energetic
    • My make up needs fixing
    • The lipstick is too dark
    • The wire behind me should be removed as should the tag
    • The film should be shorter and more dynamic
    • Besides from this, I'm good. I've posted it eventhough it is far from perfect.

    I love to do it and again I saw many obstacles.... pfff.
    But I will share one of the video's and post it with a blog the coming week.
    I can celebrate the progress I made
    Being on stage, feeling more confident during and because of this program
    Keeping in mind: working smarter not harder.
    and trust that I can do that even when I am more visible and get more attention.
    I can handle it. pfff

  16. I want the video making a habit, especially to do it more easy and less time consuming

    file:///var/folders/4g/6zzkm3b96fg818jbbbxjcxl80000gn/T/com.apple.Safari/WebKitDropDestination-Eo8UG9YZ/IMG_5923.MOV

  17. Part 2.Day 5 – record your final video – but don’t be afraid to make a few takes before you’re satisfied.

    Yes I am satisfied with the expertvideo I made. Including a call to action.to join my workshop.

    I am not satisfied that i struggled with you tube today. And did not manage to upload the video. Learned a lot though from tutotials, and with some help I will succeed later in a few days to create a private you tube account.

    The shared videoresults of some of the participants were very inspiring.

  18. • Day 4 – practice recording the answer to the question a few times… each time learning from watching yourself and improving the next “take”;
    More complicated than I thought. On paper it looks different to actually “telling”’ it on video.

  19. Find my compelling why
    My why is maybe a strange why, but here it is. “Why not. I have nothing to lose, maybe people will like what I have to say." Anyway I will try it and will not overthink it too much. So I will make a script. Then I will try to open a Youtube channel ( never had one before) and try to add it there as unlisted. First I will come up with questions to answer.

  20. Question with take aways: "How do I bring some humor and lightness into my presentation?"

    1. People love stories so focus on the stories behind the facts.
    2. Tell about your own pitfalls and what you learned from them.
    3. Don't confuse humor with joking or telling a joke. You've probably once made a blunder that made you a little embarrassed. Tell it with light self-mockery. Practice this story a few times.

    Your audience will love you for this and immediately reward you with their enthusiasm. And this in turn boosts your confidence.

      1. Ha dag Marcel, fijn dat je verantwoordelijk houdt voor mijn uitspraken.
        Ik ben bezig met verschillende video opnamen. Nog niet alles is af. Wat ik je hier laat zien is een presentatie in interviewstijl. Dir is de volledige opname (11 min) die nog zal worden geëdit naar een video van ca 3 minuten. Zoals je zult zien is deze opname gemaakt in mijn eigen virtuele studio.

        https-//vimeo.com/666457680/e94c4fcce4

        Groet, Rudolph

  21. Day 5 – record your final video – but don’t be afraid to make a few takes before you’re satisfied.

    Today I recorded a few takes, but I couldn t find enough time to make the final version. I will do that tomorrow.
    Saw some very inspiring video s of other participants. Will watch them again to give some feedback.

  22. Day 3:
    What means that a cable is microphonic
    Day 4: recorded it
    Day 5: haven't found the time to edit it, will be for this weekend.

  23. WEEK 12 DAY 5 – record your final video 
    Video uploaded on YouTube as UNLISTED

    Please, take into account that this video is made out of my holiday home; I don't have the proper instruments and circumstances to make a video that is professional enough. Still, for the purpose of this assignment, I have uploaded it and I now share the link with you. Thanks for watching it :-).

    https://youtu.be/fT1FXlwaqpw

    >> I am going to publish my first/best expert video so far. <<

    1. Hi Manny,

      You come across as very warm and caring. That will certainly come across strongly to the target group you are targeting. You yourself set an example by this of what it means to be loving with yourself.

      Now my tip:

      I learned this myself during the media training I had years ago. Blink your eyes a little more often. You are close to the camera, which makes your eyes look even bigger. There are times when you do this and then you immediately see the difference. The effect on the viewer is if your eyes are wide open and you don't blink, you appear tense. Large, staring eyes nonverbally point to startle or panic.

  24. Day 5 09-09-2022

    – record your last video – but don't be afraid to do a few takes before you're satisfied.
    Feel free to upload the best RAW version to YouTube as UNLISTED (so only people with the link can watch the video) and share the link to the video in the comment box - if you want to get feedback from WOMB participants.

    After a very instructive week and after practicing a lot with recording yesterday, I present the result to you today. I am also very curious about your results. That way I get to know you better. I look forward to your comments:

    1. WOW , that looks so professional Marcel! I think it looks very authentic, and you picked a topic that people will definitely react on. Very good how you did the call to action also at the end.

      1. @Marcel I think I have one point on how to improve the video. Your title is not very clear. What is the video about? Yes, dominant people. But that in itself doesn’t say much. So- I’d suggest to change the title a bit so it’s clearer why you should watch the video. Maybe “how to deal with over dominant people?”

        1. Thank you Gerdy,

          For your positive comment. I am going to adjust the title and think about it carefully so that the title immediately attracts attention.

  25. Here is my video! YAY. Proud of it. If you watch it, it's in dutch- please like it- if you're interested in the topic, make sure you subscribe because I'm planning to do more videos. If you have constructive feedback: love it! Please leave it here as a comment!

    1. Hi Gerdy,

      Picture and sound are top. The way you present it is good. The following is intended to be constructive:

      Only after more than 2 minutes do I understand what it is about. You are misleading me with the black screen. Why bother with a black screen? The exercise you mention gets me interested: it's a great method to get to know each other better.

      This is also my tip:

      Start with the exercise and say something about yourself and ask the viewer if he or she has this too? Do this a few times and then ask how was that for you? Then what do you think is the effect during an online meeting ect.

  26. Day 3 – choose one question from yesterday’s list and come up with the 3-5 take aways you want your viewers to remember;

    Why am I so tired?

    4. What is talent management?
    5. Why Human Talent management instead of Human Resourch Management?
    6. Why Organic Management?
    7. I have a problem to keep employees.
    8. How can I get more satisfaction in my profession

  28. Day 1 – come up with at least 10 answers for why do you want to publish a video on your area of expertise;

    1. To demonstrate that I have value.
    2. To help potential clients with simple things, so they start to trust me.

    4. To show the potential clients that I can help them.
    5. Fun – makes people laugh While it is a serious subject.
    6. That people have a nice time to watch the video
    7. That people recognize themselves.
    8. Share- people share the video because it’s funny and serious at the same time. Maybe it can help other people of they van laugh about it.
    9. Make people think unconscious about the subject
    10. To help the people to learn more about personal leadership in a easy and relaxed way.

    This is really helpful for me:. Keep it simple. Answering one question.
    Yes, i can do this! 😍

  33. WEEK 12 DAY 4 - practice recording the answer to the question

    I wrote a script, practiced speaking it out loud, and then took some takes. I've made and published videos before, I'm comfortable enough with this. However, I am not sure if I will publish this video. Maybe later, when I've worked out my plan for my new ideal client and VIP product.

  34. WOMB WEEK 12, SEPTEMBER 8 2022, DAY 4/5
    PUBLISH AN EXPERT VIDEO

    Practice recording the answer to the question

    Although I have not recorded the answer to my FAQ chosen question, I took a moment to analyze “takes” I have done in the past (see two examples of short videos I made by clicking links below). These are my insights:

    * I feel more comfortable when I prepare the RAW structure of the video
    * I perform better when I don’t prepare too much and let room for improvisation to glow
    * I prefer to film alone and do my thing while none is watching 🤪
    * I need to “warm up” in order to get in filming mode. I do this by being playful (silly) with the camera, then serious
    * surprisingly, playful stuff that seemed stupid at first, turns out to (sometimes) be valuable
    * The more I do it, the more I like it
    * Need to work on my “lightning”. Great artists know exactly what light suits them and their purpose the best
    * Less is more (in content) but more is more in sincerity and openness (at least it works for me)
    * What I think it is going to be a “Hit” is never IT. The hit always comes where I expect it the less and for the less expected reasons. So need to study the Hits more and better
    * From now on I will make the videos with my Target Audience in mind. So far my purpose was to share what I had to say with everyone who would be interested

    Hereunder the links of my two short videos (1 min. Each):

    One minute biggest insight of the E-Myth
