This post was originally written during the beginning of the pandemic when we were forced to connect with most of our women online.
However, the tips for using video can still be applied today.
Hopefully, you’re continuing to utilize social media as a way to stay connected and build community between in-person meetings.
Creating videos doesn’t have to be complicated. Don’t overthink it.
There’s no need to do any video editing or purchase fancy equipment.
You really just need three things:
- The camera on your phone
- A window (free light source)
- A tripod
If you’re nervous or unsure about using video, I want to encourage you to DO IT SCARED. God is going to continue to give us opportunities to grow and stretch. I’m praying we’ll each embrace them.
I created a short video to share some of my best video tips with you.
Note: Here’s the link to the tools (affiliate) I mentioned in the video if you want to check them out.
I want your women to be able to see you, hear you, and pay attention to what you have to share.
Videos provide connection in a way that the written word cannot.
I encourage you to connect regularly with your women via video and invite them to connect via video with you too.
As I suggested in the video, practice will help you become more comfortable on camera.
I recently learned that when authors record Bible study videos, they film them out of order intentionally because even professionals get better with each video shoot.
Give yourself some grace. No one expects you to become an overnight video expert. Your women love to see your face and appreciate that you’re making an effort to connect with them.
