rebecca-rideout-toldvideo-claimthestage-podcastWe’ve talked about the value of Facebook Live and YouTube to market yourself and build your platform, but what about having your own video that tells your story to event planners, clients, and audiences?

On today’s episode, we discuss how to use a promotional video to capture what makes you unique and share it with the world. I interview Rebecca Rideout, a video producer and owner of Told Video. Rebecca has fifteen years of experience shooting, editing, researching and producing non-fiction films. Today, she creates short-form documentaries for businesses that want their story told.

  • Tips for speakers who want to share their story through video
  • Benefits and results speakers can expect to see if they make a video
  • Biggest mistakes people make when trying to make a video of this kind
