You tell me. Which makes the best impression? 

[   ]  Video A? (taken with iPhone, no lights, no microphone) - 

[   ]  Video B? (shot with high-def camera, with lights, with microphone) -

In preparation for your video interview:

1. Consider what to wear. Prepare to look your best.

2. Consider what to say. Marie Swift can work out a few questions with you when you arrive or you can bring them to her (or you can do your own solo speech directly to the camera - Marie will be smiling and nodding silently on the other side of the camera).


- What makes you unique? How is your firm different?

- Why should people work with you?

- What key issues should your prospective clients keep in mind going into the next 1-3 years or x period of time?

- What are the biggest challenges your prospective clients face and how do you help them address those problems?

 - What keeps you up at night?

- Why did you get into the business? What motivates you to get up every morning?

- How did you get started in the business. Tell your story of then and now.

3. Consider who you are "being." Your confidence and composure will reassure the viewer and build rapport. If you are nervous about being on-camera this is a great opportunity for you to get some experience. Marie Swift will provide quick coaching for doing a better job with your stance, delivery, facial expressions, etc.

4. Consider having fun. Be excited! Video is something we all need to master. This is a very affordable way to get a professionally produced video clip that you can actually use in your marketing communications plan.
