So what’s the story of today?

Today has been about creating an intro and outro for future YouTube videos, writing a video script and creating a Keynote presentation.

The reason for that?

I was awake until 2am watching some incredible videos by Chris Reed of Compelling TV.

Videos are important from a marketing perspective for any brand new business. Mike Griffin Sales Training is no different.

Yet videos are notoriously difficult to make. My previous foray into the world of YouTube videos would show you that.

I wanted to make screencapture videos and speak off the cuff as I was doing them. I spent countless hours in the editing room trying to get them right but often to no avail.

So I thought after listening to Professional Video Maker Chris Reed, I’d give it another go.

The intro and outro branding video was far easier than I thought. After only a few minutes at the computer, I was done.

Here it is:

The video script flowed and I am amazed at the results.

The video script is below:

Question:

“Hi Mike, I’m struggling to keep up with the latest information coming out of my industry, is there a quick and easy way to do that?”

So what was the most difficult part of today?

Creating the Keynote presentation!

How hard can it be to create 15 Keynote slides with builds and animations?

Yet I am still not finished.

So look out for the video tomorrow now.

There will be two.

The audio is done. I just need to screencapture the content and export the slides with the builds, animations and timings intact.

So what about you?

Do you use Video Marketing in your business? How effective are those videos in generating leads, cultivating relationships and exploding Sales?

Do you have any tips to speed up the video making process?

Leave a comment please. It would be great to hear from you..

Best Wishes,
