Video Contest


Time for a Video Contest and for me to put my money where my mouth is!

I mentioned earlier that for the last three months of 2014 I would be really concentrating on Video Marketing…

With that in mind I thought it would be fun to have a competition.

How to Enter the Video Competition

All you have to do is record a video… Telling us something about you and then post a comment to this blog post where your name links back to either a blog post with a video on it, or your video on youtube. And let us know what challenges you have with video marketing generally.

What you can win

It depends slightly on the number of entries but the prizes so far include:

A $100 voucher for any of my products or to be used on a private session with me.

A green screen

And for every 20 entries I will add in another prize

Please feel free to share this post and when you do you will  get access to my Core Essentials of Video Marketing.

    I haven’t got into video or voice/pod casts, a friend just asked me about that the other day, and I think it’s a great idea, but I am very extra reclusive (accident I was in) and so I’m just not able to do these things, fact is, I’ve been thinking of pulling out of social media all together.

    Having said that, I would like to give you a few hints, tips, tricks…
    1. Find a Color Wheel, (Your Colors) and use it religiously, the wall you have for a background is not conducive to your complexion, and everything just washes out.
    2. When I was teaching, my students really liked when I litterally laid out the points for them. 1,2,3 so “By the end of this course you will be able to ……”
    “You will be using the following tools and languages throughout the course”
    “We will be completing the following case studies, labs, stat’s as the stepping stones thoughout.”
    a. Start with
    b. Next,
    c. Next.

    i.e. they want a road map, and the more I thought about it, the more it made sense, How do you know if you are succeeding If you don’t have the proper guidance/materials throughout? A person should be able to judge for themselves without seeking outside opinion.

    3. consider some background music, nothing loud, in fact, something subtle, but music requires the brain to use both left and right sides, and hence people are more ‘attuned’ to what you are conveying as a message to them.

    Ok, that’s my two cents and a plug nickel for ya.
    Best regards,

      Thanks Elaine,

      Some great hints and ideas there. Remember that you don’t need to appear in the video yourself and you can always create a video using powerpoint and some great photographs.

      I will definitely take some of these on board for my next video.
