Getting Started with Video:

  1. Use a recording Studio that captures video
  2. Don’t have a webcam? Use your phone as a camera (put on DND)
  3. Create a visually appealing setup

Ways to Utilize Video for Your Podcast:

  1. The obvious way is to add them to Youtube—I would consult with a Youtube strategist for the best way to use Youtube for podcasting.
  2. Reels, TikToks, and YT Shorts (and Carousals)
  3. Live recordings in FB or replays for member communities.
  4. Behind the scenes timelapses.
  5. Promotional videos beyond Reels—website videos.
