Video Critique: Confidence Building Techniques With Jay Jay The Illusionist

I recently watched this video below presented by Gideon Shalwick, who helps people better use online video in their business. The topic was how to confident in front of the camera. And, for that topic alone, the video is worth watching. I especially liked the advice that Jay Jay gives near the end: act like you’re in love with the person on the other side of the lens. I’m not sure I could do that, but I at least try to act like I really, really care about the person on the other side of the lens. It might get too mushy otherwise. 🙂

Anyway, another reason I share this video is because I want you to notice how natural they both are. Yes, they um and ah, but it’s not distracting. In fact, it just makes it feel more like they are in the room with you and you’re having a conversation with friends.

Of course, there are going to be times when you want your presentation to be more formal, and so you should watch those verbal fillers. But, don’t become paralyzed with the fear of uh. If your content is good, people will more than likely not even notice, and if they do, they’ll forgive you.
