Optimize Your Home Business with video

Your home business is one thing that is soley yours. That can be comforting, knowing you don’t have to answer to anyone, but it can also be a challenge because you are the only one responsible for your success or failure. Here are some effective home business tips to make sure that you stay on top.

Video can get your message to your target audience.

Customers want to see your product in action, so put demonstration videos on your home business website. Do you give seminars? Upload a clip of one of your speaking engagements. Or, is it a physical product you sell? Show me that product in use and the end result. Did you write a book? Read your favorite part on video. This will endear your audience to you and give them the trust that will lead to a purchase.

Branch out! Look for opportunities! A home business that is service-based should also be selling products! Write an e-book, or audio book, or even a physical book or manual. Sell subscriptions to an area of your website where you post the latest information, or answer questions your customers might have. Provide video of your seminars, so people who can’t afford to fly in to attend them, can still see them. Keep thinking and you’ll come up with your own ideas!

Provide transcripts of any video or audio you post about your home-business products or services so that search engines can index it and customers who can’t see or hear can read it. Making your content accessible to the widest possible audience will open you up to getting leads from any demographic.

Marketing your product should leave people wanting to learn more or buy as soon as possible. If your home business sells a food product, my mouth should be left watering when I find out about it. If you show a video of yourself giving a seminar, it should tell me enough that I want to learn your secrets.

Take a video of your home office and write down the serial numbers of the expensive items you have, like computers or cameras. Try to find the receipts for each item and keep them in a file with the video on CD or tape. Keep it all in a water- and fire-proof safe so that if you ever have a disaster in your home you can replace your items easily through an insurance claim.

Follow these tips if you want to make sure that your home business is a success. Home businesses can succeed, but only if you make the commitment to do so and work hard to see results. You can take pride in knowing that you’ve built the business yourself and that you are running it, successfully.

It’s important that you, your producer and your scriptwriter should select just a few messages to put in your promotional video.  Who are you targeting?  Are you trying to differentiate yourselves from an established competitor? Are you solving a new problem that is not being addressed by competitors or is it a new solution to an old problem?  Is there information that all users must know about your product ahead of time to use it effectively?

These are the types of questions that help determine what goes into your video production. Focus on a just a few important messages for your promotional video.

Appearing on Camera in Your Videos

Write your script and practice and practice some more! Then ask your producer for a teleprompter for your videotaping. It will make your delivery more professional and will help shorten the editing time.

Start by practicing without even having a camera present. No lights either! This will help you just get used to the sound and feel of your own voice “announcing” and speaking out loud. By eliminating all the common stress triggers you give yourself a chance to become comfortable with everything that comes with the act of being on-camera.

Good lighting is crucial. For faces, bright, diffused light works best.

Grooming is important. Wear your best. If you have a makeup artist on the shoot, they will gladly help you. Women normally wear more make-up than normal. For men, makeup is normally a foundation to help even out their skin tones.

On camera delivery is important and requires patience and practice.
