This is to encourage you to start creating your content using videos and the power of them to build up your tribe and confidence. One video each week in any format. Commit yourself to 12 weeks which will get you into a good habit of posting consistently and building up a communication rhythm.
Join the FREE Get Visible with Video Facebook Group for extra support (as this is not just for coaches, but for anyone wanting to build up the know, like and trust factor using video to attract your ideal clients).
In this VIDEO CHAT, Agnes shares how she got started with YouTube and manifested a full time income (with over 11,000 subscribers). She also helps Yvonne Gething with some ideas for her new business idea (You Deserve Riches). Both Agnes and Yvonne are also VIP Members of Online Coach Support. Please press play and watch the VIDEO CHAT above.
In regards to this video chat I got it subscribed. One of the reasons was because I thought that during our chat Agnes shared some "nuggets of gold" that will help all of us as coaches and small business owners just get on with it, take action and start getting visible. One of the bits she shared was:
So if I was in your shoes, I would look at those types of things and put my energies into the income producing activities because I see and Colleen and I had a conversation about the thing that a lot of the coaches do is they don't put their energies into income producing activities. They get lost in all the creativity, which is what I did as well in the beginning. A lot of us are creative, but the creative part is the part we're good at. It's the connecting with customers and potential people to purchase what we sell that is our downfall and that's the area that we need to as coaches work on - how do I create an audience that is potentially capable of purchasing what I have to offer. That's where the energy needs to go."

Nuggets of gold is another word that I like to use. Sometimes it just takes that "little snippet" or nugget of gold for a great idea or an invention to create something of extreme value that propels us into our AHA moment.
For the last few years as I have been trying to get my members and other coaches and small businesses visible, I thought I need to walk the talk and get visible myself.
I started doing the video chats at the start of this year with others to get both myseslf and others more comfortable in front of the camera and then wanted to give them a nice intro to lead into the "Video Chats" and to finish also with an outro video and credits.
One thing I am experiencing is that although they may only be 30 sec or less than 2 minutes, it does not take only that amount of time to create. In fact I often can spend quite a few hours creating them, getting the right template, getting the right music, speeding it up, slowing it down, adding other transitions, editing because something is not quite right, uploading, compressing it so it is not too large etc to totally customise it to my client's requirements.
I think because I started calling them snippet videos (to help others realise they can break down their content into little snippets to use as teasers and get more visible) that people (or I think they do) think that it is easy and everyone can do it - especially with the software and apps that are out there.
It was only when I ran my 6 week Get Visible with Video Workshop to teach people the basics as a pilot course, that I could see that people were so overwhelmed with the techy aspects and how much they struggled, their feelings of I can't do this, their moments of joy when they created their own little video or they were brave to be in front of the camera for a couple of minutes, that I knew that this is my strength and skill, which others do not have. In addition, I had some overwhelming feedback from one of my mentors Jessica Lorimer (@jess_lorimer) which led to some great feedback from others outside of my normal Facebook Groups - Heather Gray (@choosetohaveitall) and Emma Perois (@getorganizedwithemma).
I love doing this side of things, others don't because they are passionate and skilful at something else. I have also recently "out-tasked" some jobs to see what they would cost me and also how much time it would also save, which in this instance it didn't. I will use out-tasking for the things that I am not good at or don't like doing, but will continue to create some fantastic CUSTOMISED intro and outro "pockets of power" for my clients.
SO if you are interested in getting a CUSTOMISED Intro and/or Outro Video for your Facebook Lives, Presentations or Videos schedule a call with me so we can chat and work something out. Click on my scheduler below to organise a time suitable for us both as a connection chat is required and select Customed Intro or Outro Video Connection Call.
Until the end of June all proceeds from these "snippet" videos will be going towards my crowdfunding project - Addheka's Aid Projects of Mercy, Cambodia for the basic supply of school uniforms and supplies to very poor children across seven provinces in Cambodia.
Let's work together to see what we can create. Looking forward to connecting and having a chat to see how I can showcase you - Colleen xx
