Or else you can share a link doing off your YouTube videos so that a lot of people can watch the video sadism. Correction Onda. Moreover, let's go to view the Onda. Let's move on. 3. Camera & You: topic, number one camera and you. When you start out talking in front of the camera, it might feel a lot uncomfortable, and you might feel that the situation to be awkward andare in this video, I'm gonna share basically how I goto adjusted to this awkward situation when they start out , it is really important to play around with camera. Make multiple videos on various topics on get adjusted, mingling with her camera On more importantly, when you are about to make a important or main video, it is really important to have a well organized and well structured script on. The first thing that you need to do is go for the first rehearsal, and when you play back the first rehearsal, it is really important to not for mistakes On. More importantly, you notifying different sports in your video, it's you think could have been done better could have been presented in a more engaging manner, andare different sports that you think could have been a done in a different base so that he can make more engaging video andare combined. All these information like our mistakes positions on the implement that in your second herself, I played back the second to herself on Do the same thing. Find for mistakes and solutions on Do that for a couple of time, and I'm sure that you guys will feel more confident making the next video on a the new thing that you have made a decent video. It is important to share your video with your family on your friends. They are the people who know you better on day are the people who can provide you with some really valuable sedition. Grab old tradition on in culprit all solutions on mistakes that you have ah obtained through this rehearsal process. Onda implement or dosa onto your main video before making the main video. And just as I said before in mind direction, it is really important to start out once you have made a decent video just published that you don't do social media platform, and definitely you will be having about the positive and negative comments on. More importantly, there are a bunch of people who can provide you with some really valuable traditions. Make note off of those additions and, uh, keep on growing. Keep on improving your video andare. Trust me, guys, you will have a sturdy Onda reviving growth in the long run on guys. All of these things cannot take a lot of time. Basically, it's a lengthy process. Definitely. You need to have a lot of patients, but in the long run, you are building a really strong foundation for yourself on can really benefit you in the long run, making your perfect, more confident, more comfortable person in front of the camera. On that is topic number one camera and you. Now let's move to topping number two that Issa personalize and I'll see you there. 4. Personalize : don't big number to personalize. I happen to attend a class on entrepreneurship Public speaking on the importance offer confidence. Andi, I really like to share or not for the toppy that really strike me. Andi, I have made something just to make it more sensible. Basically what they said, what you need to consider the cameras a person. More specifically, they said that are you need to pace the photo off your loved one or the person who you can freely talkto right being the camera symbol based a photo for your loved one, or whom you can freely and more comfortably talkto right in the camera on what this like. Article said dot When you speak to persons who you really like are speaking toe, you will be automatically more natural, more comfortable on, more confident on that can directly reflect in you making a more engaging a natural video. Basically, I did not implement that this park list this particle started you that it's a basing four door beneath the camera. I basically considered my camera as a person. So when I'm talking to a person that I really like, when I'm talking, the person who has same in process like me, I will be more free, more comfortable, more natural. Moreover, if it's a topic that I'm interested in, I'm more confident in talking about that dopey on it is really beneficial can have see using backed on you, making more engaging on more natural videos off your own on. That is a really good tip that you can implement in next week, one off your next videos on. But I'm sure that you would be more comfortable talking in front of the camera on Do give this particular tipper try on. Do let me know what you guys think. Now let's move to the next topic. 5. Speed : topic number three speed Basically, in 2000 and 14. When I started out, you do. I used to make a lot off in front camera videos just like this on one of the most frequent Coleman that I was getting on the common section wasa I waas digging through diamond first on in the beginning, I used to ignore those comments, but when my channel started to grow, I was getting a lot more comments stating the same thing that I was talking to Diamond first on. At that point, I decided toe basically correct, that decided today that I had that is speaking to have been forced. But when I used to watch my own videos, I waas feeling all right. I was talking in the correct rate. I was able to understand what I was speaking more basically when everyone or a stranger what just for your video, they are not able to understand what is speaking. So all therefore or la the and for diarrhea, putting one day video is companies leaving. So I decided to correct myself to change the way I speak. So I decided to share my video with my friends and family Onda, basically friends and family of people who you talkto on a daily basis, and they might not feel a lot off a difference in nearly us feel. So basically, it is important to make Nordoff positions that are coming on the comment section on data from 2014. Even now, before making a video, my brain always reminds me that I need to talk slower or leading. One of us can understand what I'm speaking, So if you are a person who is start talking in there hi or fast rate, it's really important to many mice or slow down the way you are speaking so that your viewers can understand what is speaking. Because that is something important thing. They used me to understand what is speaking or leading you can provide value to be was only then you could make an end getting video. So it is really modern toe talk in the minimum grade so that everyone can understand Onda off course. That is really important in every social media platform in every video that you make. Because audio is one off the most important order. It is the key factor in Monsieur conveying your nor less to other people. It can be a lengthy and time consuming process to make or adapt yourself to that slow speaking should here it can have a really good and strong benefit in your long run. So that is stopping number three how you can adjust your speak so that everyone can understand what you are conveying. Now let's move it up in our for that is observe and implement. 6. Observe and Implement: topping Number four, observe and implement.

Implement that on time, never asking you guys to copy anyone's a presentation or speaking skill or style. It is basically important to adapt a pattern on the for example. In my case, I happen to watch a video on YouTube on I felt like a department or the four man. They were four like must really affect you. And it was like a started or lieutenant indirection that had both features and Arkham. Basically, they talked about what they are going to do on what benefits that they are gonna provide. Do their viewers. If they watched their complete video, then they moved on to the self in election, provided the Kornman and can go to the video. And, if you don't know, asked for the report from Microsoft. Eight seconds is the time period that is named as golden time period in which everywhere what to say video on If you don't provide an engaging interaction in the 1st 8 seconds on that you father viewers don't feel like a You have a value in the video. They are going to skip to the next screen in the eight seconds so it is really important. Provide a valuable, engaging introduction in the 1st 8 seconds toe hold or who killed me was to watch her and die video. So it is really important to adapt on Altar de Popular are already adaptive or already effective our pattern on implement in your video so that again cats, or who killed us in the 1st 8 seconds and make them washer and die video. And that's what I was speaking about. You need to adapt a really effective pattern.
