Welcome to Your Quick-Start Mini Course

Welcome to Idea Decanter’s new video program for advisors! We can’t wait to get you in front of the camera. 

But we do know delivering a message on camera is not easy or natural. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

You are used to talking to a person, looking them in the eye, and making a connection. Now you’ll be looking at a light and a phone, talking to an empty room, and still trying to make a connection. 

How do you connect?

First of all, relax. You are in good hands. Most of our clients don’t have a lot of on-camera experience (except for this guy who picks up side jobs as a model for obvious reasons). OK, high school debate or musical participation might have laid the ground work, but in the past few decades, you probably haven’t had a lot of formal coaching. That’s where we can help.

I gleaned some teachable tools from my years as a broadcast news reporter and anchor. Now I’m passing on these tips from the tv talent consultants and voice coaches who helped train me. Reporting live from a hurricane or in the Mardi Gras crowds might be a little more distracting than the environment for your shoot — but the fundamentals of talking on camera are the same.

Watch the video below to get 3 tips (and a bonus tip because we really love you) that can help you bring the best you to your video shoot.
