Even though I’m an extrovert, I can empathize with being shy. I’ve met people who are shy and their shyness interferes with marketing opportunities like making videos. If you are shy and you find it difficult to get in front of a camera, I’d like to offer my help.
Excuses to avoid making powerful videos
When speaking to people who are shy, they give me plenty of reasonable excuses why they don’t want to make videos. Of course, the number one reason is that they are shy. But, there are several other reasons why they choose not to make videos:
- They don’t like how they look
- They don’t like their voices
- They don’t know what to say on camera
- They don’t have the confidence to appear on camera
Shy People are Missing out on marketing opportunities
As an empathetic person, I understand that these reasons and many more are valid, but there are so many reasons to make videos as a way to grow your business. If having an opportunity to grow your business with a marketing tool that works isn’t enough for you to start making videos, then maybe these reasons will get you in front of a camera:
- By not doing video, you are missing out on a proven revenue stream.
- People want to hear your message, knowledge, and insight.
- The more videos you make, the easier it gets to make more videos.
- Shyness will decrease.
On top of that, it is helpful to know that video is powerful. People watch videos. Then, they watch more videos. Once you start making them, your inhibitions should decrease and you will eventually become more comfortable with the red light in front of you.
If you are still too shy to make your own videos, there is another option: you can make videos with other people! Maybe you can interview someone, so you aren’t even facing the camera. Or, you could make videos with other people in your business. You could also hire someone to be in your videos.
