Who would want to see me on video?
Plenty of people - we bet you have no idea just how popular you are!
To help give some background and a personal touch to the topic of your exchange, we strongly encourage uploading a video (and no, we don’t just say it; we live it with our own exchanges!).
It doesn’t have to be Oscar-worthy; really, all you need to do is aim to be sincere. Look at it as a brief introduction that adds a dash of context to the exchange, with the added bonus of letting participants put a face to the questions being asked. It also allows participants to understand the emotion behind your request (are you passionate, concerned or excited about this topic?). Experience shows that when participants feel a sense of connection or familiarity with the one asking the question, they’re much more likely to engage.
“Where do I start?” you might be asking yourself. Take a look here for how to create a great video.
