Have you ever felt like you have valuable knowledge that could help others, but struggled with how to best share it?
Many experts want to teach what they know in an impactful way—but get tripped up on the technical details.
Whether you’re a developer looking to teach coding skills or an Excel guru aiming to train others, these techniques will transform how you share your wealth of knowledge through video.
Key Concepts from the Video
- Define your target audience – Before you start recording, get clear on who you want to teach. You don’t have to niche down too far, but having a point of view helps connect with viewers.
- Plan a focused content structure – Don’t just throw together random thoughts. Think through a logical learning progression to guide viewers step-by-step. Start with fundamentals, build new concepts incrementally.
- Minimize on-screen clutter – Hide everything on your desktop and in your tools except what you need to demonstrate. Reduce visual noise so learners can focus.
- Show your face and personality – Putting yourself on camera forms a human connection. It shows you care and builds trust.
- Iterate based on feedback – Re-record if needed to improve explanations or broaden your audience. Input from real learners is invaluable.
- Promote your work publicly – Share behind-the-scenes details from your process on social media. Build anticipation and get feedback.
- Make time for creation – Be willing to sacrifice leisure activities for a season to focus on your goals. But also rest when needed.
