⭐Practice
Before posting your first video, record a short clip every day for a MONTH without posting one. It’s called practice! That’s a tip from Shay ☀️ Rowbottom and it’s brilliant.

⭐What to Post?
Film something about yourself! A short video about your job, your pet or that time you went to Tijuana on spring break and ENDED UP IN JAIL for 7 days and the lasting bonds formed with your cellmates. ❤#PeopleConnectWithPeople#CelliesToo

⭐Get Stable Y’all
Buy a tripod or a stand for your phone. They’re cheap and worth it.

⭐Print & Tape
Print out your script or bullet points and tape it directly ON or NEXT to your phone. It keeps your eyes on camera with talking points in clear view.

⭐Which Way to Film?
Some prefer to film in selfie mode so they can actually see themselves on screen. Others prefer to talk into a lens without a distraction. Try both and see which you prefer.

⭐Less is More
Keep it short. Don’t pack 20 thoughts into a 5 minute video. Force yourself to keep it under a minute. #GetToThePoint

⭐Editing
Editing can add polish to your video, but the stress of making the “perfect” video can be overwhelming at first. Save edits for later. I recommend InShot.
