Look great on camera by lifting your webcam

Proper camera angle

Do you use a webcam for making online videos, video calls, or Skype?

Confidence and Connection through Video – Interview with Yasmin Nguyen

Confidence on Camera

Yasmin Nguyen, founder and CEO of Vibrance Global, joins us in Subscriber Nation today to talk about how to exude confidence, be better at emotionally connecting with your audience and establish credibility through video.

Video also allows you to deliver information to your audience, and when you do so with confidence, you are positioning yourself as an expert in your field and that’s how you gain your viewers’ trust.

Below you’ll find a couple of quick tips to avoid this in your calls and recordings.
