I remember the first time I hit the go live button on my Facebook. 🎥
I remember sitting there SO excited. I was up so close that you could literally see up my nose, boogers and all. 😂 I was like ‘Wooahhhh, I’m LIVEEE’.
When I look back at that video today I get sooo embarrassed. 🤦♀️
But when I think about that moment right before I went live, I remember being so nervous that my hands were sweaty my stomach felt like it was in complete knots. But I pushed forward because I kept hearing that video marketing was the way to go when building my network marketing business and personal brand online.
To this day, I’ll tell you, I still get super nervous before recording a video for my blog, Facebook live, IGTV, and before I get on stage… Even now, making 7-figures, I get nervous! So, I want you to know right now that you’re NEVER going to feel 1000% confident when it comes to creating video marketing content. But there are some tips and tricks that I want to share with you on how you can create more confidence and really get over this ‘gotta be perfect’ mentality. 🙅♀️

Do you find yourself afraid of getting in front of the camera? Do you have anxiety when it comes to what kind of videos to post? Does creating a video fill you with dread? Do you create a video and then cringe at the final product?
If you can relate to any of the above, then this post is perfect for you! 🙋♀️
Here are 5 ways to slay your camera experience, become more confident in your videos, and create more sales on social media:
Confidence Tip #1: Become the Attractive Character
Think about a time in your life when you knew you were IT. 💁♀️ The objective is to remember a time when you were on fire.
It could have been in your business, your personal life, your financial life, or even your high school days. The key is to harness that amazinggg feeling you had when you slayed a moment or situation before getting on camera. Carry yourself the way you did at that exact moment. Smile the way you smiled and embody that character. This will make your camera experience much more pleasant for both you and your viewers.
Once you’ve identified that moment, write it down. Then, before hitting the Record button, immerse yourself in that moment. Bathe in the feelings of awesomeness. Carry the same confidence you had in that moment with you in front of the camera. If you build on that energy, you will naturally manifest confidence. ✨ After all, true confidence doesn’t come from outside factors, it comes from within yourself.
Confidence Tip #2: Write Down What You Want to Say and Practice Before Going Live
Going live on a whim with no plan is not a good idea. 🚫
Start off by writing down what you want to say. 📃 Next, condense it down using bullet points on index cards. Finally, practice your talk out loud at least ten times before turning your camera on. Once you go live with bullet points in front of you and your talk practiced, the glitches will disappear. 🙏
This leads to a natural flow, which makes you appear more knowledgable and confident on camera. Your personality will shine through 🌟 and as a result, more people will jump on. This will make a HUGE difference in your Network Marketing business or Personal brand, and the way you come across to your audience.
Confidence Tip #3: Use a Teleprompter App For Your Prerecorded Videos
There are a TON of teleprompter apps you can use that allow you to control how fast or slow the scroll is. The trick is to play around with different services and see which one works best for you. Some teleprompters are known to cut you off at the end, but a quick trick to remedy this is to let it scroll down for several seconds and add in another word so you don’t get cut off in your prerecorded video.
If you’re doing any type of video that is prerecorded, we suggest you use a teleprompter to keep you on point. This helps with the flow of your video and decreases the chances of you tripping over your words. 😣 It’s also a good idea to run through the script a few times before recording so you can get everything right from the pauses in between your words to the speed of the scroll.
It’s important to note that using a teleprompter is not a good idea if you’re doing any type of a live video. If you do decide to go live, stick to writing down your main points on paper, and practicing what you want to say at least 10x.
Confidence Tip #4: Print out a Picture of Your Ideal Client and Speak to Them When Looking at the Camera
When we talk, we’re used to engaging with people. We’re used to seeing things like their emotions, facial expressions, and hand gestures. We suggest putting a hole between their eyes and sticking the camera lens through it.
You should pick a picture of someone who embodies your ideal prospect and looks engaged. This simple exercise allows you to speak in a way that is more personal and more targeted toward your audience.🗣 Be sure that the person is smiling in the picture 😁 because then it’s as if you’re talking to someone who is more receptive to your message. This will make a huge difference in your videos because you’re talking to someone who is engaged rather than an inanimate object (the camera).
Confidence Tip #5: Have FUN + Let Your Personality Shine
This one can be easy to forget but is SO critical. There will be times that you're not perfect and that’s OKAY. Who can really relate to perfect anyway? The key is to have fun and be yourself. 🥳
People appreciate organic content and want to see you in your natural element. Give people a sneak peek into your life.
What are your hobbies? If you enjoy painting, for example, give people a glimpse of you creating some art. If you’re crafty, share some of your everyday craft hacks with your audience. This way, you’re having fun doing you, while also coming across as authentic and relatable. Being all ‘business' all the time can turn people off to what you have to offer. One of the best tools you have to offer is being YOU and we hope that you will embrace that.
When you’re making a video things will go wrong. That’s just Murphy’s Law.
Life happens –
Kids will come up to you.
Your house may be messy.
Something may be going on in the background that’s out of your control.
The trick is to go with it and just be HUMAN. The beauty of going live is the ability for people to see our imperfections. These imperfections don’t distract people from our message, but instead, add the human element to the message. 💖

It’s so easy to get caught up in our own insecurities that we miss the opportunities presented to us. These same insecurities are what attracts others to us because they’re looking for real, raw, and relatable. Instead of hiding these insecurities, bring them to light. 💡 Share them with people. OWN them. At the end of the day, your audience wants to see authenticity. There’s nothing more genuine than embracing, sharing, and poking fun at your flaws.
Making live videos are a great way for your audience to get to know you. They’re also an opportunity to connect with your audience on a level that is beyond superficial. Once you’re confident in your ability to impact others, your business will THRIVE. 💸
As you can see, creating a video (live or prerecorded) is a great way to attract new humans to your Network Marketing business or online brand! Despite your fears and flaws, you need to produce video content for your audience. Showing up with confidence on the camera is a must. ✔
You can build confidence by becoming the attractive character. Before going live, think of a time in your life when you crushed it. Think about the confidence you felt and then embody it in the video.
You can avoid uncomfortable pauses or “ummmm’s” by writing down exactly what you want to say and practicing it beforehand. Make sure to practice out loud at least 10x. If you do this before you go live, you will radiate more confidence when you speak.
You should use a teleprompter for prerecorded videos. This will help you stay on point and speak in sentences that flow. Do not use a teleprompter when going live because it can come off as robotic. These should only be used in prerecorded videos since choppy ✂ moments can easily be edited out.
You should print out a picture of your ideal prospect and stick it to the camera. Make sure the picture is of someone who looks engaged. This way you can speak in a way that is confident and in line with your target market.
Make sure that every time you create a video, you have fun with it. If you go live and something goes wrong, it’s not the end of the world. Instead of seeing interruptions as bad, start seeing them as an opportunity. As long as you’re having fun and being genuine, you will come across as confident.
We hope you found these tips valuable and start using them right away. The more you practice and apply these, the more confident you will become on camera. Just like anything else, creating engaging video content comes with practice.
