How to Create a Quick Video to Share on Social Media
Share the real you. People want to know you. Be straightforward and confident. It’s okay to show vulnerabilities because it helps to connect to your audience and builds trust.
3 Steps to creating the best video
#1. Create a 3-7 second intro to engage your audience.
Grab attention and do NOT introduce yourself. Instead, ask a question, use a funny phrase or show an unexpected thing.
#2. Give a topic of interest in only 30 seconds or less.
Give a solution to a problem and use every-day language. Talk about your audience, not yourself.
#3. Tell a specific next step
Show your audience what to do next. Make your closing a Call To Action (CTA).
Congratulations on creating a video in 1 minute or less!

I joined Toastmasters in February, 2016 because I wanted to learn how to feel comfortable speaking in public and talking about my new art business called ArtistEntrepreneurs.org. Since then I have given speeches to large and small groups, recorded webinars for online distribution and held workshops for artists who are interested in learning what I know about the "business of art." Toastmasters has helped me to become comfortable in any environment and to take on leadership positions with success. I had no idea how far Toastmasters would take me and was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to learn and grow with the encouragment of fellow professionals. For the Toastmaster year of 2019-2020, I was awarded Toastmaster of the Year after taking on many leadership roles at the district level.
