Don’t let vanity stop you from posting video. Period.

This is what I tell my clients. Don’t let vanity stop you from posting video. Do something. Don’t wait for perfect. It doesn’t exist.

But.

But the lighting is bad. But my hair looks terrible. But I don’t know what to say. No buts.

Do you know how many videos I’ve posted that look super lame? Ones that I wanted to delete?

Case In Point

A couple weeks ago, after a coaching call with a client, I followed my own advice and created a video on Photobooth and posted to LinkedIn.

To date, it’s had 39 likes, 27 comments, and 1,372 views. That’s a whole lot more people than ever listen to any of my WordCamp talks. (Note: max time for LinkedIn video is 10 minutes.)

What about my target audience you ask?

Of those views, 76 were software developers (my audience), 72 founder (my audience), 61 CEOs (my audience), and 47 business owners (my audience). That’s 256 people who are my target audience watching a video (18%).

So? What are you waiting for?

If you have a smart phone, you can create video. Many mobile apps allow you to record and upload natively. That’s even better.

Start with the questions your customers always ask. Aim for 2 minutes or less. Record. Publish.

You’re welcome.
