One thing I love about hosting my podcast is when I get to interview people who helped me for so much of my journey. Kim Garst is one of those people. She’s a live video pro who taught me much of what I know about social media. I read her blog posts, engaged with her tweets, and now have a big audience of my own.
For this episode, Kim shares her insights on live video. Kim got attracted to live video because you can connect directly and immediately with your audience. Kim was (believe it or not) camera shy in the beginning, so she talks about how she overcame this initial shyness that many people have.
We’ll also explore how to prepare for each live video so you deliver value without stumbling on your words or getting lost in the vortex of real-time engagement. Kim engages with people who interact with her videos in real-time, and she explains how to do that while staying on topic.
Finally, there is an ultra time hack Kim uses to save time creating content elsewhere. She will take her live videos and repurpose them into blog posts. She will get the videos transcribed so she doesn’t have to write a single word for her blog posts. This saves countless hours of time and allows her to pursue more projects.
Kim is also offering five Breakthrough Success listeners a free ticket to her Social Boom! event in Orlando, Florida. The event takes place from May 16th to the 17th and features speakers such as Mike Michalowicz, Jeff Adams, Nicole Waters, and many more.
If you want a free ticket to the event (and only ask if you’ll use it), send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll let Kim know you want a free ticket.
