Today, she is sharing her top three secrets to help YOU rock your next on-camera appearance:
When the camera starts rolling, you have to be comfortable going with the flow! Whether you are appearing in a television segment, FB Live, or video, here are my three tips to rock your next on-camera experience:
1) Make an outline. Outline your main talking points and make sure you remember all of them. Make sure you feel comfortable communicating 1-2 lines about each point. When you are promoting your business on camera, you want to make sure you’re familiar with the handful of points you’re trying to highlight. That way, you’ll be sure to bring them up – your host will guide the conversation, but you’ll want to steer toward the points you are trying to share.
2) Practice, practice, practice. The more comfortable you are with the material you’re presenting, the easier it will be for you to think on your feet and steer the conversation. Once you have an outline, practice your talking points and think of different ways you can present the information. Also, have a plan for how you’re going to seamlessly integrate your business into the conversation. Quick tip: practice in front of the mirror! It really does help!
4) Look the part. When you’re on camera, you have to be cognizant of how you present yourself! Wear clothes that are bright or neutral (such as white or black), stay away from patterns, and opt for a form-fitting look. Baggier clothes generally make you look heavier and frumpy. Take some time to make sure your hair and makeup are presentable – I always use HD foundation even for my FB Lives. It’s the little things that make all the difference!
Sure, on-camera interviews can be intimidating. It’s scary to put yourself out there! However, as your business grows, on-camera appearances are powerful tools that enable you to share your business with the world. Using Anjali’s tips, the camera can become your friend and an incredibly effective way to connect with your audience. So smile, relax, and have fun!
