Starting out on a new task can be a bit daunting. Whenever I’m faced with a new DIY project at home I always begin by doubting my ability. After all, I’m a teacher – what do I know about fitting a door, or putting a roof on the shed? For me, the key point is taking action – once I begin a task I normally find that I have the requisite skills and can cope with most things.
A second key point is to make sure that I have the correct tools. Over the years I’ve amassed sufficient bits of hardware – hammers, screwdrivers, saws, etc – to tackle a wide range of tasks.
The same thing applies to my internet marketing. Over the years I’ve acquired many skills that originally I would have considered to be quite beyond me. I would never have dreamt that I could build websites, or use FTP, or proficiently cope with autoresponders – but I have!
To many people, creating video products can seem to be way out of their comfort zone. When I first started that’s exactly how I felt. Me? Appear in front of camera, or do a voice-over? No way!
But I had a go, and slowly I developed the skills I needed, and acquired the necessary tools. In this second video in my ‘How to create your own video products’ series I give details of the software and hardware that I think are essential for effective video development. To be perfectly honest with you, it is possible to start producing your videos with no cost at all (apart from your basic computer).
So just click on the image at the top of this page, or the link below, and you can start putting together your video production toolbox. Don’t forget to contact me if there’s anything you don’t understand!
Keep dreaming those big dreams,
