Are you good at first impressions?

Your “About Me” video serves as your online “first impression!”

In this post, I’ll teach you the 5 essential elements to include in your “About Me” video so that you will stand out from the crowd and make that great first impression!

How To Get The Most Out Of This Tutorial

First, watch the video tutorial below. I teach you everything you need to know about how to create an “About Me” video for your About Me page.

Or if you learn better from reading along, I’ve written the contents of the video tutorial that you can download and print a PDF of this training here:

1. OPENING STATEMENT

This positions you as an authority and expert.

Ex. “Hi, my name is … and I am the creator and author of … (your site) and this is my life…”

2. BACKGROUND

When someone asks you “Tell me about yourself… or “Tell me your story,” what do you say?

Ex. “If you are anything like me…

It’s just a little teaser that introduces you but it intrigues them to keep watching.

Here are some tips and questions to ask yourself:

  • Introduce your family (people love to relate on a deeper level!). This shows some trust too.
  • Introduce your pets!
  • Where did you go to school and what did you study?
  • Where are you from?
  • What are some jobs you’ve had?
  • What are some of your hobbies?
  • Are you a sports fan?
  • The point of this part of the video is to develop a connection with your viewer. You want them thinking “Yeah, I’ve been there,” or “I can totally relate” and especially “This person is real!”

    3. PROBLEM

    Give them the “REASON WHY” you are making this video. This can be because you have advice to give or a passion to share, etc.

    Ex. “The reason why I am making this video for you is because…

    4. SOLUTION

    Ex. “That’s why I’m here. I want to help others _______ because ________ (your previous problem).

    5. CALL TO ACTION

    Ex. “I’d love to get to know you! Stop by and say hi on my blog: ______. See you on the net!”

    PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER:

    “Hi, my name is… and I am the creator and author of…(your site) and this is my life…”’

    “If you are anything like me… (You love your family, camping, sports, pets, video games…etc.)

    “The reason why I am making this video for you is because…. (Your problem)

    “That’s why I’m here. I want to help others …(your solution) because …(your previous problem).

    “I’d love to get to know you! Stop by and say hi on my blog: …. See you on the net!”

    GOALS:

    Keep it under 5 min

    Smile! Relax and let your personality shine through.

    Non-perfection (yes you read that right!) Just let it flow and don’t worry so much!

    SUMMARY:

    People want to know who you are and how you can help them.

    Tell them a little bit about who you are, where you are from, what you are doing and where you are going. Most importantly, let them know exactly how you can help them, and tell them exactly how to access your help.

    You can think of this “About Me” video like a chapter book…with only 3 or so chapters.

    Note: Do your best to mix up the shots. “Show” your viewer instead of telling them. That rule alone will make your video stand out from the rest!

    COMPLETE EXAMPLE:

    Hi! My name is Stacia Hopkins.

    I’m the founder of StaciaHopkins.com and the creator of the Beginners Guide to Video Marketing.

    If you’re anything like me, you love your family (have family come in the shot waving), your pets (have your dog or cat in the shot) and your food (show your family at the dinner table).

    The reason I’m making this video for you is because just 2 years ago I was at my wits end. I had talked to every single person I had ever met about my network marketing opportunity and still only had a team of 3 who didn’t even buy.

    My “business” was sucking my time and money and not producing the results I was working so hard to achieve.

    It was about that time that I stumbled upon the idea of marketing my business online.

    And boy was I excited!

    I thought that within 2 months I’d have people breaking down my door to join my business and work with me.

    Oh how I was wrong.

    I learned that marketing my business on the internet was just like building any type of business! It takes lots of dedication, hard work, determination and especially time.

    I didn’t make a dime the first 12 months I was online. I really started to doubt that this internet marketing thing was all that it was cracked up to be. But then, I discovered the secret.

    Are you ready for it?

    Get a mentor. Follow what they’ve done. And you’ll be elated at the results.

    That’s what I did and am still doing.

    I’m following in the footsteps of mentors who are leading me through the “mine field” of marketing my business online.

    Since joining up with my mentors, I’ve started seeing the results that I started out to achieve 2 years ago.

    I’ve had people call me asking to join me in business because they’ve seen what I do online, gotten affiliate checks in the mail that I didn’t even expect, created and sold my very own product that positions me as an expert and leader and hung out with the top marketers in our industry!

    That’s why I’m here. I’m here to be a mentor to you in your journey through internet marketing. I love teaching others in minutes what took me months to figure out. Seeing you succeed brings me more joy than any check in the mail.

    Well, that’s a little about me and my family. I’d love to get to know you better too. Stop by my blog at StaciaHopkins.com and drop me a line!

    Until next time… (Whole family…Tony the Tiger style…) You’re Great!
