Here I share Vidspiration, gear and tools I am loving PLUS Online Entrepreneurship powered by Video!
What to film under lockdown?
I like these examples.
Radio host, Ian Dale is giving tours of his bookshelf :)
Video Hero, Adam Hobden used timelapse to show work on his garden.
I guess lots of us who are lucky to have a garden are fired up to start new projects.
Timelapse is a super 'hands off' way to shoot a Video while you get on with the work!
In case you are a newbie, here is where you find the Timelapse option on your iPhone when you open the Camera app.
Sports commentator Nick Heath has no sport to commentate on (!) so when he can get out .. he applies his skills to everyday life clips, builds a social following and gets paypal donations!

I found myself really going hard at my Online business whilst locked down at home.
I started doing things I had been putting off, like getting to grips with Zapier, creating Video Ad ideas in an hour and testing them immediately .. plus tweaking my website.
I had to socially distance myself from too much News and also Netflix.
"Create don't consume!" is my motto right now. Go make Videos at home!
And .. people are still buying online .. just be cool about it and offer them something that really fits their radically changed life.
This week, I had someone on pitch me a Doodle style video. I didn't need one but I thought .. "Hang on a minute!"
If filming in locations with clients is now nearly impossible (due to the Virus) .. then you can offer Animated Videos instead.
Liaise with your client via Slack or Skype, make it at home. Get paid.
Doodleoze is a...
I watched a Video a few days ago and the software I saw looked too GOOD to be TRUE!
So I downloaded the FREE demo (Mac only) to give it a go ... and guess what a surprise .. it is that GOOD!
Go watch a short Video to see it in action ..and the icing on the cake is the FREE trial so you can test it for yourself!
It's a WIN WIN if you create this particular kind of Video .. (and you really should!)
Most software in this space either is over complicated, comes with monthly fees or a high one-time fee .. but NOT this one!
It's a LOW one-time fee! (Plus you have the coupon)
Super simple, it's been recently upgraded with new features and I had it up and running in just a few minutes.

Here's some updates from this week ....
So I have no idea who first came up with this phrase "All Business is Show Business" ... but I agree!
It's a perfect message for Video Heroes .. because Online Video is the child of TV and before that the Movies ... where Entertainment is King.
You need to tap into the Emotion of your prospects and buyers not just provide the service. Video is the best way to do this.
Scott McKain has a book on this topic. To quote an article of his:
"The fact is, people rarely remember the details.
But they will remember how something made them feel.
And that’s why ALL business is “show business!"
So in your Videos:
I pass on a lot of new products in the Video space .. too much hype and too many copycat Video Creators out there.
But I must say I am liking LiveReach (Take pre-recorded Videos and broadcast them 'As Live' on FB and YouTube)
Go watch my demo Video https://www.videohero.com/p/tools
I bought it a few days back .. and every time I have re-broadcast 'As Live' my email list has grown. A clear return on a small, one-time investment.
Live Videos grab attention in the feed! I was having dinner at the time :)
But to be clear I stated in the description the Video was 'Pre-recorded'. You can answer questions via comments as it goes out (without juggling 2 things at once) or pick them up later.
