Tip No 2 Energy Vs Certainty
We generally see motivational speakers who are very energetic in front of the camera and others who speak at a very low pace. Both are very good speakers and they follow their style. You should not follow any of these and speak the way you are. Just be yourself and don’t try to become someone. Always maintain your energy levels. Don’t be too high or low.
“Be Who You Are“
Speak the same way that you speak with your friends and family members. People will enjoy your presentation if you show certainty in your content. If you are perfect in your content then energy levels will automatically increase in your video. You will look good, authentic, likable, and energetic if you make your point with full certainty.
Tip No 3 Remove Insecurity
If you switch on the camera and see yourself, you always feel that you are not looking good and try to find some flaws. This is your insecurity and because of this, you don’t want to face the camera and keep postponing. If you come out of the fear and post few videos on your social media accounts (not on youtube), you will get many likes and comments that will automatically boost your confidence. Post without thinking about the result.

Tip No 4 Language Barrier
Language is also insecurity. People will feel that they feel sophisticated if they speak in English. You will look natural only if you speak in your mother tongue. You can always use English words while making videos. Try to make videos in the language you are comfortable speaking as you might lose attention while speaking as you tend to think in your mother tongue and translate into English. Don’t be in your mind and be in the lens.
Tip No 5 Keep Your Camera At Eye Level
Keep the lens of the camera at your eye level and then shoot a video. It is a general saying that people will speak the truth and are confident if they look into their eyes and speak.
The same formula applies if you speak in front of the camera. Look at the shine in the lens and speak to have control of your thoughts in your mind and to get authentic content. Your heart, mind, and words will be in sync once you see the shine in the lens and speak. If you want ideas on how to get video topics, click here
