Revealed: How A Video Challenge Boosted My Views on Facebook

It’s like almost 4 in the morning.  Thirty of us have taken on a challenge by our mentor David Wood to shoot a video, get the most view, likes, comments, and shares all in an effort to win a contest to be apart of his leadership mastermind event in Costa Rica this October 2016. Now, I will confess that I was like “huh?” Like why not just charge me to attend or something like that. Well now that I have taken on this challenge to compete for a spot at the table, I’ve come to realize a few things.

1. It’s was a lesson to get us out of our comfort zones. That’s right. Most people are so afraid of not doing things right, saying the wrong thing, etc. That fear holds most people back. This challenge was to inspire us to make action and overcome that fear. I will confess I was nervous and like “WTH?”  If I want to be able to help people, I’ve got to conquer my own fears.  <—Click the link to see the video.

2. It was a lesson to show us that we can influence people to take action, get them engaged, and earn their support. That’s the basic definition of leadership. It’s something we all have.  Even if I got 2 views on a video, I still had engagement and support from those viewers. They viewed the post!!!! That’s the biggest  battle with any advertising/internet marketing/etc. Getting people to actually look at your content, and hold their attention. I did that!!!!

FACEBOOK STATS

3. It got us over our fears of making fools of ourselves on camera. Now, I will confess I don’t like video blogging. Yet, it has been proven time and time again it’s the most effective and produces the highest engagement with audiences.  So, I did it!!! I made my video on   Facebook Live .  <— click this link to see the video. I’ve only used that Facebook feature two times. Today was the second time.  I was so nervous!!!!

4. This challenge also proves that people are more likely to engage with you with a video because it shows your personality… basically you.  It’s raw and live. More importantly…it uses the majority of people senses: see and hear. Where as a blog post is only seeing, while a PodCast is only hearing.  The more sense that are engaged, the more people are engaged.

Thanks to what I have learned this weekend on internet marketing and taking on this challenge, I have generated several hundred views in minutes.  Thus proving his point of the power of videos in internet marketing. It’s like woah!

Take a look at the video, like it, comment, and share it. Then go do your own video and put it out there. Let people see you, connect with you, hear your voice, and know that you are real. You’ve got value to add to their world that can make a huge difference for them. That’s what it is all about, we each help each other to be better!!

I want to thank you for supporting me in this challenge by viewing, liking, commenting, and sharing the video. Please let me know that you have, so that I can thank you!!! This challenge is major proof – no one wins without the support of others.

 

Thank you!
