It’s time to power up the video camera for another video blogging challenge! We had our last challenge during March and April of 2014, and we need to have another one before the end of the year.
I posted a message on Google+ asking people which month was better for them – August or September. Most agreed that September was better and so it shall be!
How often do I record a video?
We’ll do the same thing as last time and post a video every day from Monday through Friday giving you the weekends off for relaxation time with your family.
Since we want to do a full 30 days of video, this means the challenge will last for six weeks. We will start the challenge on September 8, 2014 and continue creating videos until the last day on October 17, 2014.
Your recording schedule will be as follows:
- September 8-12
- September 15-19
- September 22-26
- September 29-October 3
- October 6-10
- October 13-17
How long does the video need to be?
There’s no set time limit, but I would advise keeping your videos under 5 minutes to respect the time of all the participants (and your community too). Time is something we don’t get back once it’s gone.
How professional does my video need to be?
Get crazy or act all professional – the choice is yours; however, I would like to suggest that you show your quirks now and then so people get to know the REAL you! 🙂
I don’t get all fixed up to do a video. I don’t wear makeup (the partner likes the all-natural look) so don’t feel as if you need to have every strand of your hair in place. Let your hair down and have fun!
How will you record?
Try a face to face video, a PowerPoint presentation or a how-to screen capture. Again, the choice is yours. Naturally, I would prefer to see your smiling face, but ANY video is better than none at all.
What will you video blog about?
You can video blog about your niche, for starters. Follow that up with why you came online, what you like most about online business – or anything else that comes to your mind.
Where should you place the videos?
The idea is to share what you create. Place them on YouTube or Vimeo, your blog and on the Google community we created for the challenge. Consider sharing them on Twitter, Linkedin and Facebook too!
