Bi-Weekly Video Update – 08/13/17

Why do you want to have an online business? To me (Michelle) being able to work online is all about the lifestyle. I work the hours I want (sometimes 2 am works better than 8 am), in the location I choose (sometimes a day at Starbucks is just what I need). To do this I have to be efficient. I know that whenever I put forth a lot of time to create a video, I need to be certain to leverage the (bleep) out of it!

In today’s video news (this week brought to you by Michelle Schoen) you’ll learn one way to repurpose the hard work you have put into your videos. By maximizing what you do with video content you’ve already created you get to spend more hours chillin out.

The Lazy Person’s Way to Maximize Your Video’s Reach

You work hard to create your video content, but did you know that there is something very simple you can do to help maximize your content marketing efforts? Whether you are trying to grow traffic, sell a product or demonstrate your expertise, transcribing your video recordings can help you do that.

Having your audio or video files transcribed (or doing it yourself) is a simple way to repurpose your video or audio content.

You can use transcription to create a wide variety of additional content types and formats that will allow you to get the most out of the time you’ve already put in.

Do you Need Some One to One Help?

I do a lot of private coaching a little inside our screencast video coaching program and more via a 4 hour coaching package. The people I work with want to create an online business using video for courses, software tutorials or YouTube videos. If you have some unique needs, or simply prefer private coaching over group classes, my video coaching package might be right for you.

This week I’m offering a deal on a 4 session private video coaching package.

This is something that I’ve never done before.

Buy a coaching package this week, then get a $100 rebate when you meet your goal. Just set one goal such as – "I (insert your name) will create…"

  • a 2 minute marketing video for my product or
  • a YouTube channel set up with one "Tips Video" added or
  • a membership site with one video product or
  • a series of storyboards for my course or
  • a sales page created to sell my video course

You set the goal and meet it, you get $100 back.

I know – it sounds like a conflict of interest, right? If you complete your goal, I lose money. But it’s actually just a reverse coupon. Let me explain…

Instead of doing a $100 off coupon, I wanted to provide an incentive for action taking. I want you to use the rebate as an incentive against procrastination. So…

Buy the coaching package this week, then start your first session any time (whenever you have the time to focus on your video goals) and I’ll be right there helping you every step of the way.

Interesting Reads

I mentioned above that, although I make a good income online, I try not to work more than about 25-30 hours a week. I really value my free time. We’re all (me, Lon and all of you) super lucky that video skills are well paid and online courses sell quite well right now.

I read an article, in Forbes, the other day that kind of confirms how I think about this work and I thought you might enjoy it too.

It’s Lon Naylor with a "no wallet required" PowerPoint video template & tutorial for you!

"Cinematic" Video Template

One of the cool things about my job is that I get to interact with some of the top PowerPoint animators on the planet.

And that also means… I get to talk them into letting me have freebies to give to you like this sweet template!

Cool Resource: Callouts!

OK. This is one of my "best kept secret" weapons.

My buddy Peter Gillberg is a Camtasia pioneer when it comes to building sweet Camtasia assets. Truly innovative stuff that you can drop into your video projects and modify.

You can sign up for nothing and get a very nice sample pack to play with!
