First introduce yourself
It is wise to assume your viewers are seeing you for the first time; briefly introduce yourself early on in every video and then move confidently through the information you are making available. It only takes a moment and it can make a big difference. Especially when the person viewing your video has never heard of you before. If you impress them, you’ll probably want them to remember who you are and if they are not interested in your ideas, they’ll know whom to avoid!
Your name plus your catchphrase
Your name and benefit catchphrase is a short set of words that can quickly make your self-confidence increase and set the tone for an engaging delivery of whatever you are speaking about. Starting off by introducing yourself on camera also helps to get the flow of words going. There is a really good chance that you will say your own tagline right and, once you start talking, you are well on your way to getting the whole message out.
Giving your name and a clue as to what you are all about at the beginning of each video is a welcoming invitation to viewers to get to know you better. Like business cards and nametags, saying who you are in a short, memorable phrase is effective. This habit helps establish a face-to-name connection and makes it easier for people to remember the conversations you have with them.
Just like you, it is a work in progress
Your introduction may change over time, as you get more experienced making videos. Start now with the best you have and keep improving on it until you lock in an excellent way of quickly saying who you are.
