Is it rational for ‘newbies’ to intimidated with the idea of learning how to produce basic video? WAYNE FORD: It’s completely normal (I was intimidated my entire first year of shooting and editing as each situation was a little bit different) but it’s also very do-able to overcome those few learning hurdles. You will make mistakes and that’s OK! The diving in, learning strategies and techniques will be highly beneficial to your business in the long run. You can also always find someone to help you out and the internet is a great resource on every aspect of video production imaginable. When putting my course together my goal was to put all the needed elements into a recipe that was easy to follow for each and every video you create.

WAYNE FORD: I've got the 6 top problems new DIY video marketers face here…
- Fear. “I don’t like being in front of the camera. I get really nervous!”
- Lack of Money. “I don’t have enough money for equipment.”
- Poor Knowledge. “I don’t know how to shoot & edit.”
- No Time. “I don’t have the time to create videos.”
- No Ideas. “I don’t know what my videos should be about or how I should structure them.”
- No Traffic. “I put up a video on YouTube and only got 3 views…what’s the point?”
