Hey, welcome to today's episode.
I am so excited to be here. My name is Brandy Shaver and what I do is teach business owners, entrepreneurs, and people who build teams and move products, how to use social media to grow those teams and move more products.
So today we're talking about three tips for becoming more confident on video. Back when I got started doing this, I was terrified of being on video. It was a huge thing for me. I went through this huge transformation. So I want to share with you a couple of tips that really helped me out.
1. Speak to the Camera
- When you do this you are speaking directly to your audience and that makes the person on the other end feel like you are speaking to them.
2. Talk as if You were Talking to your Best Friend
- Once I started doing this it took all the pressure off of me, I became less anxious and more authentic and relatable. Don't get me wrong, you're still gonna get nervous. I've done hundreds of live videos and I still get nervous.
3. Be Prepared
- Write down some bullet points to have in front of you to keep you on topic and keep you focused. When you get nervous it's easy to get off track and get a little squirrely.
- It's ok to review your content and practice before you go live. That's awesome!
Just try not to get stuck in the need to be “perfect” right now. When you watch your video over you're probably going to start getting really judgmental of yourself. You're not going to like your voice. You're not going to like the way you look. You're not going to like the way that you lift your eyebrows and your forehead, wrinkles or whatever.
Don't be so judgmental of these things! Perfection is the enemy of done. Try to see yourself the way your best friend would see you. Perfectionism is definitely something to try and get away from because guess what?... You have something to say! You have something valuable to share with people!
I hope you got value out of today and if you need more on how to build your business online using social media you're gonna want to grab the free resource in the link below!
