Course Recording

Hello, my friend and future millionaire. 

Welcome to this episode of The Money Wheel. 

My name is Kris Hutchinson.

So we’ve got your outline done for your course, and now it’s time to actually shoot video.

I know a lot of our students get really intimidated at first when it comes time to produce a video (myself included). 

I would look at my outline and be like, ‘man, I’ve gotta shoot 20 videos today’.

‘That’s just, gonna be impossible’. 

‘I’m never gonna get this done’. 

That’s really the wrong attitude to have. 

You don’t need to shoot 20 videos today, you need to shoot one video right now. 

Just look at the first one on your list or any of them, whichever one you’re most comfortable recording, and start there. 

Get one of them done.

That way, once it’s done, you can check it off and then worry about the next one. 

As you’re shooting your videos, they should only be between 5 and 15 minutes.

You don’t want to shoot hour long videos, especially when it comes to a course. 

The reason we do that is: if I’m going back to review a course, especially if it has step by step instructions, having to scroll through an hour long video just takes too much time.

So if you have each individual video that has really concise instructions, it’s a lot easier for me to go back and review the information later. 

Especially if I’m doing some kind of a walkthrough or I’m trying to follow along.

You’ve got your outline done.

If you have slides for your videos and you have your slides done, it’s really easy just to go off of them, and read those.

Some other things to consider when you’re shooting your videos is if you’re going to be on camera, your lighting is very important.

You don’t want to be sitting with a light behind you, instead make sure you have lights in front of you, that way it shows your face. 

Audio is another big one. 

That’s something that if I’m watching a video and the audio is poor, I tend to pay attention to that instead.

So make sure you have a really good microphone, and there’s not a lot of background noise. 

There are even apps out there that can help you to eliminate background noise.

If there’s any clicking, things like that in the background, Audacity is a great app that we’ve used for that. 

Audacity allows you to kind of manipulate your audio.

There’s a link to that over on our resource page: 

So those are some things to consider: lighting and your audio.

If you can invest in a decent microphone, fine, but you don’t always need to do that. 

I use the microphone on my cell phone and that seems to work out really well for what we try to do.

So those are just some suggestions for me. 

That’s everything I’ve got for today on The Money Wheel.
