12 Best YouTube Speaker Tips of The Year!

Dec 20, 2019

As the holiday season is now almost here, I want to put together a collection of 12 tips I shared in my vlog posts over the past 12 months, choosing the one tip that got the most feedback from viewers in terms of emails and messages, in the hope they help you with the videos you want to make in 2020.

Let’s go. Here are the 12 best YouTube speaker tips as chosen by viewers, in 2019 (with time stamps):

  • January: (1m22s) 2019 began with a video looking at why you might want to include video even more in your business marketing and delivery, and offered this quick vision exercise; how to clarify your vision.
  • February: (3m06s) In February I shared ‘the 5 biggest mistakes vloggers tend to make,’ which included mistake #3, ‘having a weak intro to your video.’
  • March: (4m34s) In ‘how to speak with more authority on YouTube’ I shared my top tips to position yourself as a person of authority and influence in your area of expertise, including this step, to ‘turn it up.’
  • April: (5m51s) In April I interviewed professional speaker and trainer Susan Heaton Wright about how to start a podcast, and in this excerpt asked how she helps people overcome feeling nervous before a meeting or presentation. 
  • May: (6m37s) This video was about how to design your talk, which began with step #1 helping you pick your topic.
  • June:  (7m09s) Are you leaving money on the table? In this video I shared a process to help you make sure you lead interested viewers along your marketing funnel towards potentially becoming clients. Step #2 was about the up-sell.
  • July:  (9m02s) In this video I shared the 3-main questions to ask yourself before going LIVE on video, illustrating them here in this short clip.
  • August:  (11m27s) Building confidence and self esteem proved to be the most popular video of the year, and in step #2 I shared how to visualise the way you want it to be (more confident, relaxed, etc).
  • September:  (13m03s) Knowing how to research your YouTube video content is essential if you want to create vlogs on a consistent and regular basis. Step #3 showed you how to create a schedule so you feel less overwhelmed and more productive with your video content.
  • October:  (14m51s) The imposter syndrome is something that stops so many people from ever beginning to speak, whether that’s at work, in your community or online in videos, so this video was designed to help you overcome the imposter syndrome if you feel it’s been holding you back in some way. Step #2 was to ‘believe your own sh*t!” Out there, I know…I’ll let the video do the talking.
  • November: (16m32s) For the first time in a vlog post I decided to share screen and show you how to create a professional looking intro sequence you can replicate for your videos using PowerPoint or Keynote. The whole video was a tutorial, but the step that got the most feedback was where I showed you how to format a blank slide into something that identifies your brand and is all about you.
  • December: (17m50s) This video was called ‘How To Plan and Script Your Video,’ and shared the 5-step process I use and that has helped me produce weekly video’s over the past few years. Step #31 was ‘The Hook’ and discussed how to capture your viewer’s attention quickly and in a way that creates curiosity and intrigue to watch more.

So, that’s my top 12 list for 2019. I hope you’ve found this compilation useful and interesting. Did you agree, or maybe you would have chosen differently. Let me know! Leave your comments, questions, or requests for new video content next year in the comments box below.
