BETTER VIDEO: Three Things To Do!

Updated: Jan 7


Fred Miller, NO SWEAT Public Speaking!

Here are three ways to make your video better.

Whether you’re doing your own videos or you’re on zoom call.

Number One: SOUND!

People will watch bad video, they won’t listen to bad audio.

Get a microphone that’s a good one. This is a lavalier microphone.  They don’t cost all that much.

Number Two: YOU!

A lot of the cameras on your computers are not all that good.

Some webcams can cost a lot of money.

Here’s the deal. You’ve got a great web camera in your pocket or in your purse. It’s your phone; iPhone, Android.

Those have wonderful cameras and there’s software that will let you use them just like I’m doing

Number Three: Your BACKGROUND!

I have seen some horrible backgrounds.

I’ve seen backgrounds like this, completely distracting. . People are going to look at that and say, “What is it? Where’d it come from?” You don’t want background like that.

And then you might have a background that’s too dark. You don’t want this.

You want a very simple background.

Definitely not like this!

Now if you have a green screen you can do some cool things. If you’re going to talk about Elevator Speeches,  like I do, this is a great background.

But I also like a simple black and white background.  That makes you, the speaker, stand out from it.  

Now, you don’t have to have a fancy green screen  and lighting like I do. Just make your backgrounds simple and not distracting.

Do those three things for Better Video:

Better SOUND, Better YOU, with a better camera, and Better BACKGROUND and I guarantee your next  presentation will be absolutely, positively, NO SWEAT!


Three ways to keep the attention of your audience.
