1. How to produce value-adding video content
Everyone says “stop selling, start adding value”. But how to do that? First, look for great content your audience will really care about. Don’t focus on what YOU want them to know, but instead on what THEY want to learn from you. Even if it’s not entirely related to what you’re selling.
In this video, we also share tips on: where to find content ideas, how to roughly script your content, how to look natural in front of the camera, and how to promote your videos.
You can offer valuable content in text form, but that’s so 2018;) Now, you pretty much HAVE to offer value with video content in order to stand out.

2. How we help clients grow... super cost effectively
We work a lot with services boutiques and B2B companies. The most common challenge is that paid ads, cold calls/emails, and other outreach have abysmal ROI.
That’s because your audiences needs to get to know you, like you, and trust you FIRST. Don’t you hate it when someone connects with you on LinkedIn and then immediately asks to get coffee or - my favorite - “let’s do a discovery call”?
Posting videos regularly on LinkedIn and YouTube is by far THE BEST way to connect with your audience authentically, so they see you as a trusted guide who can help solve their problems. It’s the long game, but it works!
Here’s how super easy we’ve made this “video content marketing”. It literally only takes a couple of hours of your time and you’re all set with great content for 3 months!

3. See a video lead-capture in action
Research shows that video lead magnets can have 10x the conversion rate. That’s because the lead capture is embedded in the video.
For our clients, we offer this type of service for free (or you can get your own business account on Vimeo (costs $600/yr).
You can check out a video with embedded lead capture on our home page at https://boardstudios.com/ and below is a screenshot of what it looks like.
After a viewer watches 10 seconds, we make an offer and ask for an email. If they don’t like the offer, they can skip and watch the rest of the video. This also saves us some homepage “real estate” so we don’t need a lead capture form there.

5. Book of the month: The Productivity Project
Chris Bailey spent a year exploring theories and tactics to see what really works to improve productivity. So he tried things like meditating for 35hrs a week, working for 90 hrs a week, and living in isolation for 10 days.
Everybody wants to be more productive, but it’s really hard. Very similar to getting on - and sticking to - a diet. Productivity hacks are like diet fads that give you only temporary productivity boosts.
Here’s a quick summary with tips to get more productive. For example, start your day by writing down 3 things you need to accomplish today. BUT, keep in mind that it may take some trial & error to figure out your capacity to execute, so be prepared to adjust your expectations of yourself.
