By Charlie Seymour Jr
It was their largest crowd ever. AWeber, the email-marketing giant, invites people into its new home in Chalfont, PA to participate in topics that help power their profits. This one was: How To Turn Your Video Marketing On Its Head To Power Your Profits by Dr. Marc and Charlie. Dr. Marc Kossmann and Charlie Seymour Jr are known as The Video Marketing Guys.
Here is the entire presentation, captured on video (YOU should record yourself every time you speak somewhere, too). Included are 12 of our most-seen videos PLUS a very special video by Liz Zélandais (wait until you see what this video-producing newbie was able to do after taking our course), Unleash Your Rock Star Identity.
Here are some items mentioned in the video. (Always assume that we may get paid a small amount as a referral fee for anything listed below.)
Lights, Cameras, Action!
Even if you don’t see what you think you want, click on one of these and then search further on Amazon, knowing that Dr. Marc and I feel these are good products (and that there are, of course, others).
Canon Camcorders – make sure you get one with an external microphone input! Then be sure you have lots of storage cards.
Kodak Zi8 – these little work horses can load 12 hours of video on a 16 GB card at 720p. I used several of these while doing a documentary on a church reconstruction (when I had to leave the camera on all day to provide him material for some time-lapse video).
Storage Cards – you can NEVER have too much storage. We generally use 16GB cards (the same cards fit in the Canon and Zi8 cameras) but getting a few 32GB cards now that the prices have fallen will be helpful. We always have several spares, in case we record something but can’t get to downloading it right away. REPEAT: you can NEVER have too much storage.
Audio Technical Wired Mics – when recording at a short distance without much movement, we like these little wired mics. Easy to store and set up. Just check the button battery often since there’s not battery meter on it.
Dual Wireless Mics – you can always use just one but we want to be sure we always have enough for both of us, such at AWeber. So spend a bit more and get a dual lapel wireless system.
Blue Microphone Snowball – when you see us in a webinar setting, you may have seen this attractive mic. It plugs into your USB port – you can record podcasts OR do a backup audio recording with it.
Do YOU Need To Be On Camera, Too?
1) When she first produced her video, she wrote:
As much of a tribulation as making that video was, I LOVED doing it; and I’m excited about learning and doing more. It was kind of like getting my daughter through her teen-aged years–fraught with frustration, yet so incredibly gratifying.
I cannot tell you how much your course helped–every single video was of value. About being in front of the camera (I was surprised how hard that was for me–but I’ll just keep doing & learning), and particularly the video editing. After going through iMovie (it hates Sony), XP (it hates HD), and finally Win7 with Movie Maker (which I didn’t like), I ended up with Sony Movie Studio. If y’all hadn’t demonstrated the different editing software, I would have had no idea where to start, let alone what to try next. I could go on, but suffice it to say, I am immensely grateful for the great value and support you provided.
The course she refers to is our Unleash Your Rock Star Identity.
2) Once I told Liz that her video was presented before the largest crowd at an AWeber Meetup, and I said that we told everyone that “Hey… YOU Can Do This Too,” she followed up and wrote this:
I am honored that you would show my video at such a gathering. Thank you.
Under the banner of “Hey… YOU can do this!”, I hope you told them that 4 weeks prior to making that video, I had never even held a video camera (unless you count poking the wrong button on my iPhone), had never been a subject in a video, nada, nothing. It’s hard to imagine that anyone could start with less experience than I had in every aspect of video making.
I crammed using your Unleash Your Rock Star Identity course only 2 weeks before making it. Then scrambled to find editing software and learned how to use it–launching off the tips you’d given in Rock Star Identity. (Did I mention that I work a full-time job?)
The process was not smooth, and it was not pretty. But I did it. (You knew that!)
The biggest requirement for me was the motivation–the “want-to” factor–and the coaching that y’all provided through your excellent videos. I had looked all over trying to figure out what to do and how to do it; and you and Dr. Marc were the only ones offering a full-spectrum tutorial that didn’t involve enrolling in long-term courses and significant tuition.
Hmmmm… sounds like I’m trying to sell you on your own course. Did I succeed?
Of course you may use my video (in your presentation video). I’m thrilled. Thanks for asking.
My friend Susan recently completed her fourth round of chemo–of the really hard-core stuff. Now she’ll be doing a less-intense chemo series until September. It’s been extremely rough for her, but she’s tough and spirited and doing well. “Fighting like a girl.”
Susan sure is lucky to have such a great friend in Liz.

Are you looking to make money off your videos? Then you MUST syndicate them to as many websites as you can.
