I'll start creating whiteboard videos by posting my favourite business and life quotes.

I thought the first should be a favourite from MJ:

To do:
  1. Figure out where to post/host these. It's only on my personal YouTube channel temporarily.
  2. Figure out a thumbnail?
  3. Add sound (music? voiceover?).

Lol. Thanks for the vote of confidence. I don't think I'll be creating an Excel Project Management system though, and certainly not as a whiteboard video.

Keep it up! I just thought you are an Excel Guru and might need a good idea of content to share with. Anywyas, No worries. :)

Are they ones where he does them on camera? I'm trying to move away from doing those ones.

I like the idea, it's great to see curated quotes that put you in a certain mindset.

However, I don't think making it in video form adds anything and you probably wouldn't get far with this on YT. They'd be nice on Instagram as images, though. I'd follow your quote digest :) Or maybe on twitter, but I don't know much about what goes on there.

Yeah, YouTube isn’t the place for a one line quote.

I’m just getting my head round that style of video. I’d like to do a longer form version explaining things. They could have videos/images in amongst them.

As for the animated one line quotes: I’ve started posting them to Facebook and LinkedIn. I’ll see how it goes. Maybe it will attract the eye / make people stop scrolling momentarily, and if they like the quote they may want to read the rest of the post itself.

Here’s something I posted to LinkedIn, albeit with a static image not a video:

Here’s the one I knocked up quickly this morning:

I had a play on Instagram doing this last year (or before?), but as just images. I like having a bit of back and forth conversation, but the place was overrun by bots so I bailed.

I was thinking of Twitter, but for now I’ll stick to LinkedIn and Facebook.

In defense (or maybe as case study?), there are people who listen to audio book and read it at same time.

Edit:
Gosh i realized those videos don't have voice. Hmm...:bulb:! What about doing voice over for those quotes?

Yeah, I’ll get sound done later. I just want to produce one a day for a while to get comfortable doing them and then will add extra bits into the process.

I was even thinking of sharable GIFs?
Thanks for this nudge @JohnForte

I know these aren't quite whiteboard videos, but I think they look better.


1) Here's a GIF I created this morning

I also posted to LinkedIn and Facebook as a video.

You don't need a website.gif




2) I dropped this GIF into a new thread here.

I'll upload the video to LinkedIn and Facebook shortly.


Keep doing the right thing.gif

That's looking slick, Andy!

Maybe add your name or handle in there as a little breadcrumb, just in case these get shared around too much.

I changed the name of the thread from "Creating whiteboard videos" to "Creating videos of favourite quotes".

Hmmm... I hadn't thought of that. (Cue sound of tyres screeching to a halt.)

Now then. Wtf do I put as the watermark?

You can't invoice for input.gif

I love this gem from Blaise Brosnan. ( @Kak ... I know you like this one too.)

We only have one boss - the market.

We don't have to wait a year to get her feedback, and we don't have to wonder what she really meant - she's brutally honest.

We're not rewarded for our colour or creed, for our degrees or certificates, for how long we worked, or how busy we've been.

We can't invoice for any of the above.

As business owners it can take a while to learn that the market doesn't care about the input
... that the market won't pay for activity.
... that being busy is not our goal.

It takes a while to learn that we can't invoice for input, only output.

Darken the page.gif

Gary Halbert was one of the world’s best copywriters. His advice for people with writers block was to darken the page. Just start, even if it’s scribbling.

The same advice can be applied to anything:

Just start.
