Here’s a quick and dirty way tocommunicate with your audience, create compelling stories using infotainment, a basic set up that makes you look professional:
. start brainstorming ideas
Either carry a notepad or have a little Evernote on your phone and every time you get an idea for something you could teach your audience… Write. It. Down.
Get a stack of them together to start with, then when you have 30+, pick one and write it down on a post-it note or piece of card at the top.
. next,write 3-5 bullet points that are in line with the topic underneath
If you are holding the phone, clamp this between your fingers and the phone so you can use the selfie camera and still see the points.
. press record
I’m now a HUGE fan of doing this as a LIVESTREAM now.
Because the fear of fucking up, doing it over and over again, and then NOT doing it is simple removed.
Live in 3…2…1
…and you’re on!
Trust me this helps you ‘get over’ the problems you have NOT doing this, because you have just announced to your audienceyou’re showing up on video.
Remember your audience are your audience because YOU have skill, value and something useful to share.
But for the love of God do NOT hard teach!
As a rule,it needs to have a good story ortwo, be infotaining and you want to demonstrate your value but also keep people’s attention and enjoy their time with you.
If you can evoke emotion?
Even better too.
Don’t try and be someone you are not, enjoy it, keep it simple (3-5 key takeaways), don’t over think it -and practice.
Every day for 30 days.
Every day WITHOUT FAIL.
And I guarantee you in a month your audience will be more connected to you, you will haveadded value and, your reach will havegrown and you probably will havemade some sales too.
Getting over yourself is quite a good thing eh? 😉
REFLECT ON SUCCESS
Sometimes it’s ok to be proud.
Now and then,you deserve to celebrate the successes.
I won’t say who in caseanyone knows this person, but I have a frighteninglytalented person in my world who doesn’t celebrate the wins often.
Yet,they are bloody brilliant at what they do.
I don’t think it’s good sport to rubanyone’s noses in it-but if you work your assoff, make sacrifices, put in the work and have invested time and effort into your skills?
When you get a win, a high, a goal achieved… you have every right to celebrate.
You do deserve it.
You are worthy.
We haven’t chosen the easiestride when it comes to work -yes,the highs are brilliant-but the lows are bloody awful.
So when you get a win?
You do deserve good things in life.
You do deserve success/money/happiness/health.
Whatever it is you want.
You put in the effort, you should be able to reap the rewards.:-).
