April Video Blog – If I can do it, so can you!

 
I figured I needed to walk the talk, since I’ve been talking to my clients all month about the benefits of using video in their Conversational Marketing.

Day one, If I can do it, so can YOU!
 

 
Here’s the mount I bought

I also use these lights.  $69.99, well worth it!

Check out my fellow B-School Babe, Share Ross!  Sign up for her free resources.

James Wedmore, more great video ideas.

So here you go.  It’s easy!  Find a good spot for your camera, press record, and start talking.  It’s easier than you think!

 

Comment below, and share a link to YOUR latest video.  I want to see it.

    Lovin’ the video of you Karen! Your spirit comes through loud and clear. 🙂 I thought I’d share a video with you… I did this one in the backyard and it was mostly unscripted. Hope you enjoy!

    Thank you so much for this beautiful, spontaneous, inspiring video Karen!

    I love writing and that’s what comes easiest for me. Video still feels scary, but seeing you just share without script or any need for perfection, also gives me permission to just go for it.

    One of the few vids I’ve put out is a beautiful self love practice. Check it out here:
