Does it take you too long to make videos?

Do they even turn out how you imagined?

 

Making great videos by yourself in a timely manner takes the right combination of knowledge and experience.

And creating videos alone is difficult enough without having to worry about whether or not the lighting looks right, the mic sounds okay, and if you are actually in focus. 

Whether you're too intimidated to make your first video or you're making them all the time, I'll share what I've learned the past few years making over a hundred videos.

I believe that anyone can make great videos of themselves, it just takes patience, dedication, and the right amount of focused learning.

And that's why I made this guide.

What You'll Learn:

There are so many different places you could start when you want to learn to make better videos. Trying to figure out where to begin is nearly impossible because there is so much to learn.

Trust me, I've been there. I've spent countless hours watching endless tutorials to make my videos better and that is why I put this together.

In this guide I cover:

  • How to make your video look better without spending money
  • How to get clean audio, with no echo, and sync it up properly
  • What to do while shooting to save hours editing it later
  • What editing tricks make videos more engaging 
  • What gear & software is worth the money and what isn't
  • How to properly import, export, host, and archive your videos.
 
 

"I don't know how..."

There are plenty of excuses for not making videos, but "know-how" shouldn't be one of them. In addition to the book, there are 15 video tutorials and case studies such as:

  • Syncing audio and video clips 
  • Shooting + editing multi cam
  • Creating intro + outro bumpers
  • Book trailers + sales videos
  • Video editing programs

Hear from Experienced DIYers

There are also 9 interviews with bloggers, podcasters, authors, teachers, and freelancers that have made videos an integral part of their online businesses. People like Pat Flynn, Chris Ducker, and Amy Porterfield.

In these interviews we discuss how many videos they've made that they'll never publish, how they progressed from screen recordings to webcams to DSLRs, and their tips for recording solo but having someone else edit.

The Book

The budget option.

If you're just getting started with video, getting just the guide will still give you a crash course on everything you need to learn to make better videos of yourself. It stands on its own.

 

 

"Which package is best for me?"

If you're serious about doing this whole video thing, the six hours of video tutorials, case studies, and interviews in the complete package will get you closer to the videos you want to create faster. The book by itself still covers a lot of the tricks, tactics, and gear suggestions though. 

"Do I get free updates?"

Yes, for life. This is just version 1.0 of the guide, so any future updates to any of the packages are free to previous buyers.

"How do I watch the videos?"

Upon purchase you'll download the PDF + HTML files with all of the videos embedded within them. The download is literally only about 30MB.

"Can I upgrade later?"

Absolutely. If you get one of the lower packages you can jump up to the other packages when you're ready. Just contact me to do so.
