What would you say about your business if you had 60 seconds on stage and it was being filmed?
That was the challenge at Andrea J. Lee's Wealthy Thought Leader Conference…an opportunity to get a one minute video to use however we wished. This was a huge benefit to attendees especially getting a video of one speaking on a stage in front of an audience. I found it fascinating to watch what people did with their precious opportunity.
Many people got cut off (the mic was cut at 60 seconds) as their talk meandered and went well beyond their time. Many speakers were brilliant and demonstrated their expertise through song, dance and performance. Others stumbled and I couldn't figure out what they did or what their business was. No judgment here, simply found it enlightening.
I was on the fence about whether to do it or not and then realized I really shouldn't let the opportunity pass. I did not prepare well (not what I would advise), but I did want to make sure I got my name in the video as well as a URL where people could get more information and opt in to my list. Here's my edited video:
You can see I stumbled a little bit. It's rather nerve wracking to have a timer counting down and 60 seconds goes so fast.
Are you up for a challenge?
What would you say about your business if you had only 60 seconds? Here's your invitation…
- Create a 60 second video
- Post it on YouTube
- Share the link here in the comments
This is a great way to get some visibility for your business with my audience as well as to practice a concise message you can deliver to your community.
Think about it before you turn on your webcam. What do you want the viewer to take away or do after watching your video?
Now…go! Can't wait to see your videos!
