A lot of writers make the mistake of assuming video isnâ€™t for them.
This makes sense, were writers. We build our worlds with words not images, right?
Well, yes. But whatever future weâ€™re writing for ourselves will need to be fueled with intelligent marketing, and video offers raw potential like little else.
I made the same mistake, but Iâ€™m not making it anymore. Video is already BIG, but itâ€™s going to get BIGGER. Once Google finds a way to index video the way they index copy, itâ€™s game over.
The Time to Start Learning How to Use Video is NOW
Smart writers will get comfortable on video before then. If you donâ€™t develop the skills necessary to capitalize on video, youâ€™re locking a lot doors for your writing career.
If the idea of doing videos makes you uncomfortable, I understand. The same was true for me. I recently recorded a metric ton of videos (over 60 in one week) and so my comfort level is now growing, but when I first started I may as well of been standing on my front porch naked.
Turns out, the cure for getting over your fear of making videos is to make over 60 in a week.
Video is good for you, good for your audience, and good for your future. The best way to get it done is to look in the camera and do it.
