Why Does Beto O’Rourke Livestream His Laundry?

Why does Beto O’Rourke live stream his laundry? (& the 5 reasons to start live streaming your personal brand). I’m sharing one of the best current examples of live streaming happening anywhere.

5 Reasons to go live:

1. It’s authentic – In politics & in marketing there’s a truth problem – ditch the script – doing it live – it reads as REAL. Ditch the script.

2. It’s not robotic – show your flaws and all. The glory of livestream, where saying “I don’t know” in real time actually gives you more authority,
because then your audience will believe it when you say what you do know.

3. It makes you accessible – livestreaming brings everybody together in real time in a real way. The way we perceive something is happening is to see it happening. We expect to have access to important events and important people.

4. It’s engaging – humanize your brand. Take people behind the scenes, into your ride, into meetings that are happening live.

5. It breaks down the wall – before livestreaming there was a physical and social wall between brands & their audiences – candidates running for office, rockstars on stage, influencers of all kinds were all too far removed. Live video breaks down that wall and brings everyone into the same room

Who are your favorite live streamers? Who do you recommend?

Does doing live video seem dangerous to you? After all it is a non-filtered, unpackaged, come-what-may approach to presentation.

Are you doing live video? Where do you go live? What’s your experience compared to doing pre-recorded video?

How to face your fear in front of the camera

How can you take your anxiety of doing video and whatever thing that’s holding you back and turn it into something that will actually make you show up with more confidence?

Here in this video are some tips to help you overcome the fear in front of the camera and start producing the best content you could only dream of.

When I was in high school I had this French teacher who used to make us sit in the same chair every class and then would use the text book to ask questions, one at a time, around the room – so you could look at the book and look at the order that the questions were being asked and know way ahead of time what question you were going to get – and whether or not you knew the answer. And for me, I frequently had no idea what the answer would be so I’d have to sit and sweat until my turn finally came and I’d have to stumble through some sort of incorrect response – in FRENCH – because the class didn’t allow you to speak English. UGH!! Ever since then I get triggered whenever I’m in a setting when I have to wait my turn to give some sort of introduction or presentation.

If you enjoyed this FREE content, I want you to know I’m able to go into so much more depth in my Big Reach Video program. In just 12 weeks you should expect to not only be able to turn out videos with confidence that make you look professional but that also are engaging enough to turn your viewers into your next new clients.

How to Monetize Your Videos on LinkedIn & Facebook

How do you monetize your videos so that you’re actually capturing clients? Here’s the problem I see with video: the conventional wisdom is that when you make a video, you always want to give value, you always want to show up on a regular basis – and this is all very well and good.

But, my question is, when does this start paying the rent?

You can be building your personal brand and your authority, trust and engagement with people, but at some point it needs to help you grow your business. And if you’re not doing that, then you’re missing part of why on earth would you be doing video in the first place. If you’re just giving value, then you’re missing a big trick.

I’m going in depth into this topic of how to monetize your videos during a 3-day free training that starts Monday, July 30th. Join the FREE ‘Monetize Your Video’ Challenge and see if you can land your next client with 3 videos in just 3 days: http://livestreamrockstar.com

Can doing live video actually be fun?

What does it take to do live video?

I want to acknowledge that it takes quite a bit of courage to get in front of a video camera – especially when you go live. I just led a workshop with a great group of women entrepreneurs and, of course, I asked them all to go live – and they did!!

This video (above) shows the result.

Can you see yourself doing this? Can you imagine talking to hundreds of people live and in person??

The really cool transformational thing that happened at this event was that they all had FUN going live. One of the participants posted on Facebook, “This was so much fun and now I am not afraid to go live!!!!

Imagine that! Come on and join my Videomaking Mastermind group on Facebook. All the people in the group are trying this out for the very first time. It’s a very safe place to go live. And when you post a video, you’ll get encouragement and kudos and helpful feedback. 

In addition to that I also have a group program called Big Reach Video – so if you’re interested in getting a big reach with video , then schedule a call with me. I’d be happy to talk with you about your work and how you can use video to capture a whole new crowd.
