#59 Top 4 Tips on How To Be Confident On Youtube
Have you ever thought of making a Youtube video? What will you talk about? In this episode, I share essential tips on how to be confident on Youtube.
Veena V (that’s me!) is an online entrepreneur and founder of Mum To Millionaire. I work closely with small business owners, just like you, to figure out what they should do online, especially on the largest video creation platform, youtube!
You may already be operating online, but in order for you to make an even greater impact, you have to know how to be confident on Youtube and take action to implement it in your videos.
TIPS ON HOW TO BE CONFIDENT ON YOUTUBE
Tip #1. Mindset
Be honest with yourself and stop making excuses.
Before you even start making videos, you will need to be in the right mindset. Think about what is actually stopping you from making your videos in the first place.
You might have loads of ideas on what you want to do online but for some reason something within your mind has stopped you from taking that action. So it’s important that we address this, be honest with yourself. If you’re not very confident about way you may look onscreen, think about what is the real reason – is it actually more about what people are going to think of you rather than what you think of yourself? Because there are ways around this.
That’s no excuse for you to make Youtube videos – you could do podcast-style videos where people don’t see you. You could get someone else to present your Youtube video for your business, or do a voice over, you could also do an animation-type videos. What we want to do is find solutions rather than make excuses.
In time, you will be able to build up yourself until you’re confident enough to show yourself onscreen.
So step number one is all about conquering your mindset, figuring out what is stopping you from making Youtube videos and then addressing the issue.
Step 2: Your Tagline
Think of a tagline for your business and mention this at the beginning of every video.
Tagline is similar to an elevator pitch where you need to explain to someone in 30 seconds what it is that you do and what your business does and how can your business help them. Remember that when we’re talking to people about what we do, we want them to lean into us and get really excited about us rather than step away.
The best way to devise a tagline is to think about what it is you do and how you can help people.
Now, you might be asking how you can be more confident on Youtube with a tagline? Two reasons. The first reason is that a tag line can actually help you feel less nervous. When you start your Youtube video already knowing what you’re going to say, at least for the first 20-30 seconds, it eases you into that video especially if you’re going to start doing Youtube or Facebook live. It makes you feel less nervous. Second reason is because it really does build your brand. Your tagline will make people recognise you.
Practice is so underestimated. If you truly want to know how to be confident on Youtube – and really anything in life, you need to practice. As you continuously practice your video and your presentation style, it becomes second nature to you. The more you practice a process the more confident you become. What you could do is to just get on a routine of filming a video, maybe doing a tiny bit of editing here and there, you don’t even have to post them online in the beginning.
Tip#4. Just do it!
How long are you going to plan stuff for? How long are you going to spend time putting your perfect strategy together?
At some point you are going to need to take action and you need that day to be today. You need that day to be sooner rather than later. I know it’s important to have a plan or some kind of strategy, but at the same time you just need to get out there and do it.
We obviously want everything to be in a good high standard but you can’t expect anything to be perfect.
The only way that you’re going to improve and learn and build your brand make more money in your business is by taking action. We learn as we go along.
So, how to be confident on Youtube? First you will need to set the right mindset, use a tagline at the beginning of every video, practice, practice practice and then take action!
