I’ve been trying, on and off, for about six months to record some decent videos to give my website a more personal feel and to lift my branding to the next level.
I could never seem to get the words to come out right. I would forget what I was going to say, and I would have 15 takes or more of the video and still not get it right.
Now I’m not someone to give up easily (persistence is a virtue I hold in high regard), so I kept looking for a solution.
My goal with the challenge was simply to get comfortable in front of the camera so that when I want to record a promotional video for my blog or one of my primary companies, I can do so easily.
I aim to captivate peoples attention instead of compelling them to hit the dreaded Back button of the browser.
I wasn’t really comfortable with people seeing the videos of this challenge, therefore I published them to a new account I created on Viddler (hoping that no one would ever find them) instead of my YouTube account and made them private viewing only.
What happened next took me by surprise … Andrea asked if she could share them with the Mastermind Partner Program (MPP) and I said yes (why not? I thought).
My videos then inspired a bunch of others (including Theresa Key, Vitoria Castro, Kim Smith, Raena Lynn and Merna Welke) from the MPP to take up the 30 day video challenge as well, but they made their videos public and published on their blogs.
I’ve now published my challenge video’s as well, for if they have the courage to do it so can I. Check em out on my Viddler account, and leave a comment or vote on it if you like it … or even if you think it’s not too bad.
These are in reverse order; you’ll see the latest at the top.
