10 Ways to Be Comfortable on Camera

By Maria Peagler

Mar 31

Video is a terrific medium for business professionals to show the human side of their brand.  However, many of my clients are hesitant to go on camera, no matter how fabulous their company is.  They are highly uncomfortable with the idea of putting themselves on a YouTube video for the world to see.

If you’ve wanted to use video but were unsure of how to present yourself, watch this terrific video by my friend and Twitter colleague, Mary Ellen Miller.  Founder of MarketingMel, an innovative public relations, marketing, and social media agency, Mary Ellen is also a former anchorwoman and offers her 10 Tips to Feel Comfortable on Camera. Thanks Mary Ellen!
