Below is a simple 4-Step video blueprint to get the engagement for your business. No-need to get technical here. Use a smartphone! The cameras on smartphone these days are HD and upload can be accomplished from to phone to a video hosting site, like Youtube.

The optimum time is around 3 to 4 minutes, but don't feel you need to fill that time. Less is great. The main thing here is to be real, authentic. Make videos to engage with your audience. It shouldn't be just for product or self-promotion. Make videos for encouragement or inspiration. Teach. Mix it up! Get your audience to love you and your content.

In your video, say/do these things:

1. Introduce yourself and what you're about.

2. Pose a question, exaggerate a problem that common with your target audience.

3. Provide content to solve the problem. Have fun with this.

4. State a clear call to action! Tell your audience what to do next…”Go to this site…” “Contact me at…” “Fill out the information below and click the button to get your…”

When you upload the video and embed it into a blog, newsletter, funnel or website, Facebook video Ad, don't forget the keywords of SEO.

Here's a challenge for you, make one video a day and post it on your social media site. It doesn't have to follow the blueprint above if you're just doing a status update. Say hello. Impart some wisdom or inspiration. Get real with your audience. If you have a fear of getting on camera the only way to conquer that fear is face it, do more videos! Every day do a video. This is best way for your audience to get to know you without ever meeting you in person. When they finally do, they'll exclaim, “I feel I we know each other for awhile now.”

I hope you found value in this post. Please share with your team mates and friends on social media and leave a comment below.
