I am one of the co-directors of the Boston Internet Marketing Meetup #BIMM and we recently did a presentation on how to make simple promotional videos using the phone in your pocket, usually a smartphone. The presentation went great and was a lot of fun. Along with the other members of the team, Lew Sabbag, Keith Spiro and Andrew Penziner we demonstrated the production of two quick promo videos. Keith did a general intro video and I did one on my new book “How to Publish Your Book, A Beginners Guide”. Each member talked about different aspects to about 20 participants. Lots of questions, and we had 5 people take us up on our offer to make a video.
In all our presentations we always try to have some kind of handout with the key points of the event. For this event I put together some key video production pointers, plus a section on how to set up your YouTube Channel and your video. I would love you to have the handout, Fast Start Video Handout.
Our second handout from the session was a sheet with a couple of sample scripts that you can use to create your promotional or book trailer video. The scripts are based on answering 4 statements.
1. Who I am.
2. This is what I have got.
3. This is what it will do for you.
4. This is what I want you to do next.

Here is the video that I produced using an iPhone and the YouTube Capture app that records and uploads your video right to your YouTube channel
