  3. 3. Know thy audience 1. Imagine you have to watch the video 2. Be realistic about the attention span of someone who doesn’t know or care about you (max 2 mins, get attention in first 10-15 secs) 3. Research, observe, get to know people who actually do have money to spend - they probably worked hard for it, so why should they give it to you? (are you enthusiastic, professional-looking, authentic/real?) 4. Basically don’t waste their time.
  4. 4. What are you saying and what do you need? 1. What’s the pitch? 2. What’s the need? 3. What’s the reward?

  6. 6. The toolkit 1. The internet has tutorials on everything. Take the time to not waste your time. 2. Chose software that is as simple as you need it to be. 3. Editing options include: powerpoint video (not my favorite), imovie, adobe premiere, apple final cut, or a thousand other apps and templates available for free or online 4. Camera – use the best you have available 5. Good sound is critical! Use a mic!
