Using Online Video to Grow your Coaching Practice

Friday June 26, 2020 at 11:00 AM - 12:00 Noon Eastern (US and Canada)

Brighton WestOnline video covers a wide spectrum: YouTube, Facebook Live, TED talks, Snapchat, Vlogs… Let me share why video is so powerful and the three videos that make the foundation of any coaching video strategy: video testimonials, video headshots, and authority building videos. I’ll share the purpose of each one and how to capture them. I’ll share when to hire a pro and when to DIY. And if we have time, I’ll teach you how to record your own videos.

Brighton West is a video-prenuer. He began his video journey making narrative and documentary videos – but he was always behind the camera. Along the way, he learned that being on camera was more influential/beneficial/profitable than being behind it. So he overcame his on-camera jitters and now helps his client turn the camera on themselves. Brighton has built his business by creating YouTube tutorials about using YouTube in business. Through this channel, he’s positioned himself as the expert for authors and speakers who want to grow their global audience with YouTube. He now helps these subject matter experts avoid his early mistakes and accelerates their journey to success with YouTube.

Join us to see how Evidence-Based Coaching can work for you and your clients in reaching greater effectiveness and success.
