free video tools Apr 13, 2017

With so many video tools to choose from it's easy to go into overwhelm. It's a jungle out there, for sure. There are so many apps, sites, tools and resources it can be hard to figure out which ones are right for you, which ones do what they say they're going to do and which ones you REALLY need. So I am breaking down some of my favorite video tools, sites, apps and more. Even better these are all free or have free trials so you can try before you buy. How cool is that?!?

Video Hosting

  • YouTube - Besides being the second largest search engine. Regardless of whether or not you will be sharing your videos from YouTube, you should absolutely be posting your videos to YouTube if you are interested in getting views, traffic and subscribers.

3 Ways to Get and Keep Viewers on your Facebook Live Broadcasts

So what's the deal with FB Live? How do you get and keep viewers on your broadcasts?

1. Tell People you are going live. You know I am always preaching about pre-production. Which is the stuff you do before you make a video. This also applies to going live. There are a whole slew of things that you should be doing before you go live. One of which is telling people ahead of time when you will be going live.

And or go live consistently on the same day at the same time, so people know when to expect to see you.

Don't get me wrong part of the fun of going live is the spontaneous aspect, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't have a plan and schedule your broadcast in advance.

2. Have a plan and some structure for your live broadcast. No one will watch and definitely not come back if you are hemming and hawing the whole time about what you want to talk about and or you are jumping all over the place from topic to topic.

How to Boost Your Video Confidence

There are some sure-fire ways to boost your confidence when it comes to anything. But here are 3 ways to pump up your video confidence so you can tackle video. Here are JUST 3 things you need to boost your video confidence!

  1. First things first. Don't be afraid to fail. I know this sounds backward, but once you let go of the fear of failing you are empowered to try and when you try you are gaining valuable experience to build your... CONFIDENCE.
  2. Visualize what a successful outcome looks like. Before you begin any task that you aren't yet fully confident in. Sit down and spend a few minutes seeing a wildly successful outcome in your mind's eye.
  3. Lastly, give yourself permission to make mistakes or as I like to say have learning experiences. Because it's only a mistake if you don't learn anything from it.
