Make Perfect One-Minute Video effortlessly

Want to see what is possible in 8 minutes flat? 8 nearly perfect one-minute videos by Gavin Lira, where he answers common questions effortlessly related to his new book “You’re Just One Connection Away”. Notice his technique in how he acknowledges the question, immediately answers it, and then invites people to check out his book. The classic mistakes to avoid making perfect one-minute videos These are the first takes we shot continuously— no redos and no breaks. And if we have some um’s in there, that’s normal and natural. Incidentally, Gavin wrote a 4-page book outline the day before (maybe 50 bullet points) and we shot the whole book in 3 hours. Yes, we filmed the book as a video, which we transcribe, and edit into stories/diagrams, create snippets to promote the book, and so forth. If you don’t like to write but see the power of having a book to build your authority and your network connection, then simply write an outline as Gavin did and film it. Then 90% of the work is being done by someone other than you. Each one-minute video should fit into one of the categories of Why, How, and What. Contact people with your “Why” and engage them by telling stories, then they want to understand “How”, In how you not only tell them but rather show your expertise, only then do they care about “What”, what product you are talking about, what services you are selling. To sell more, meet the goals you have selected, map your goals to the topic, and your topic back to people as people are authoritative in these topics. You can do a Zoom session and create a book out of that. Perfect webinar script on smart Call to Action at the end. The key to a course is the video, to create a personal connection. A mere sales page with a credit card isn’t going to drive sales- – unless you are already well-known. You know it’s time to get your book out there, right?

When you speak your goals, the universe will conspire to achieve them

6 years ago, Mark Wagner, had a mission to build a software company. Here’s his YouTube live: And today, he is a co-founder at Gantry Technologies, creating dashboards for companies who want to get the most out of their Kubernetes infrastructure. Most people are afraid to vocalize their goals– keeping them inside, fearful that letting others know could lead to ridicule if they flop. But the brave few who take the initiative to put their goals on display for all to see will attract help from all corners of their life— people they didn’t even know could help. Witness the power of the one-minute video. In this case, more like 10 minutes. And for good measure, Mark made another one, this on what he’s hoping to do after college. You can use video to also ask questions and as an exercise to help you clarify your thoughts. People think video has to be “perfect”, so they postpone making it, robbing them of the opportunity. Being on video is unavoidable, so we must all build skills here– whether through Zoom calls, client meetings, training, or even hanging out with relatives across the country. As entrepreneurs, we all know the importance of telling our story and sharing it with the world. Making videos is a great way to do this- but what if you’re afraid people will judge your video or not like it? You may be suffering from perfectionism in which case you need to start making one-minute videos that tell your story so that others can see who you are and help make your dreams come true. It’s time to take the plunge and start making videos. Yes, videos are scary but they can also be very rewarding when you share your goals with people who want to help you reach them. We recommend starting out by telling your story in one minute or less using a video blog (vlog) format.
