Why Video Leverages Your Online Offline Marketing Success
Tampa Florida – Well it’s 2012 and it’s predicted that by 2013 about 90% for Google search results will include videos.
- Will they find you and your business?
- Don’t you think it’s time to stop letting that Beast called “Video” intimidate you?
- Do you wish you were more comfortable doing videos?
I have to confess, even though we’ve been creating videos in our Real Estate Business since 2007, for most of that time I managed NOT be the one in front of the camera. There are definitely lots of ways to use video in your business and not be in front of the camera, however, when you do allow yourself to step in front of the camera, there is a real ability to connect with people watching that is like being their in person.
Things really changed for me last year when I made the decision to conquer my fears and insecurities and slay that Beast called Video once and for all. Of course as luck would have it that decision coincided with some weird medical condition (that doctors still can’t determine) that caused me to lose much of my hair rather suddenly- talk about a girls worst nightmare. Now if you think getting in front of the video camera is nerve wracking – try getting in front of a camera while you are mysteriously going bald – take my word for it, it’s not pretty.
Luckily 6 years of blogging and participating in social media had helped me get comfortable and appreciate the value of transparency and authenticity. I knew I was with clients everyday who saw me exactly the same way that I was reluctant to seen on video. Now really, how silly was that? Well at that moment I realized the same thing and began to laugh at myself. The Beast wasn’t really Video – the beast was within, my insecurities were holding me back from using video in a way that would help my current and future clients know our market, our community and us so much better. So that day I made 2 decisions. One, I decided to buy several fashionable hats would come in handy and two, I decided I really could do this…and I can tell you – that’s exactly what I did. A week from Monday I look forward to sharing my best tips and ideas to help you do the same.
