I have been a public speaker for over 20 years and speaking to audiences larger that 500 is now just a way of life. How hard can it be to speak on camera? This is a whole new ball game and once mastered, you will not want to stop.
Becoming better on camera is, in many ways, similar to becoming a better writer. Just as a writer must read a lot of books to improve their way with words, a video maker must watch a lot of videos to improve their presence in front of the camera. By doing so:
If you’re not watching online videos on a regular basis, get to it. Subscribe to some YouTube channels and start watching them daily.
But how do you get to be show HOST of your very own segment? And how do you use it to make millions of dollars? Well, I can’t help with the second part (let me know if you figure it out), but I can help with the first. Here are a few things you will need to TICK before you even come along to this workshop.
If this has been a dream of yours, then this just might be the panacea to your burning desire to HOST your own segment.
If you say yes to most (if not ALL) of these...we should chat. Are you:-
No BS on this one. If you don’t like people, it will be kind of hard to have a show where the idea is to interview and have conversations with people. Bonus points if you get along with others. Like-ability matters.
KNOWLEDGE & PASSIONATE ABOUT YOUR TOPIC
You don’t have be the be-all-end-all-master-expert-guy/gal, but you do have be knowledgeable on the subject(s) that you cover. If you don’t know anything about cooking and don’t like it, why in the world would you start a segment about it? Sounds simple, but I’ve seen shows fail because people chose the topic they “think they should do” as opposed to what they want to do. What happened to 'THE VERDICT?' with Carl STEFANOVIC
CAN SHARE THE SPOTLIGHT
This is important. If you have to always be the “know-it-all” expert and have the attention on you 100% of the time, there might be better mediums for you. Or I might be looking for a segment called 'From the narcissists perspective'
LOVE TO GIVE AND PROMOTE OTHERS
Self explanatory. You are throwing a party for your guests and spreading the love is key to success. If it is about you 100% of time, it just won’t work. This would be a good place for a joke on “self love” but I’m going to control myself.
The top interviewers in the world have revealed that their best questions always come from their own personal curiosities. I totally agree. The more curious you are, the better. If you were a cartoon and your first choice would be Curious George, you get bonus points.
Old school show hosts didn’t have to be extremely organised. Other people did that for them and they just showed up and hosted. Not in this era. Most likely when you start you are going to be wearing all kinds of hats: Host, producer, promoter, community builder, fire put-er-outer, guest getter. If you aren’t organised, you will end up punching yourself in the face.
WILLINGNESS TO GET HANDS DIRTY
This my friends is the secret sauce and unlike McDonalds it isn’t bad for you. If you think you will be successful by simply creating a segment and popping it up on your website and then riding off into the sunset, you my friend have been smoking something. You are going to work your butt off. Networking, answering emails, building relationships, responding to comments, marketing, taking on multiple roles, putting your segment on THE POINT TV and on the map, getting in the trenches. Is it hard work? Sure. But, if this idea of creating your own segments resonates with you, you will never be freakin’ happier.
Is it possible to be successful without all of these characteristics? Maybe. But, I can tell you right now if you were nodding your head as you read this more than you were shaking it, you are going to be in good shape.
Think you have what it takes? I’m going to help you by teaching those that are serious EVERYTHING I know about creating, promoting and profiting from online interviews. I learned from the best in the business.
