We *will* be a camera-first society in five years…. And if you still plan on being in business, then you *will* have to get used to being on video.
Stop Being Afraid to Put Yourself Out There
I think that most agents have accepted this (harsh) reality, but most agents aren’t doing anything about it.
Do you know why?
It’s because they’re afraid to put themselves out there…
They’re afraid to film because they think people will judge them
They’re afraid to edit because they don’t like the way they look
They’re afraid to post because they think trolls will write mean comments
Why You’re Afraid
Let me ask you…
Have you ever thought about why you care so much about what people think?
Seriously, why do you care if someone you don’t even know, who will never hire you, and who you wouldn’t even want to work with, leaves a negative comment?
You care because you’re making it all about you and this is a debilitating, high-stakes game that you will NEVER win.
When you make it all about you, you will always care what other people think about you.
Take yourself out of the equation.
Because it’s not about you.
If you feel scared, nervous, or uncomfortable about putting yourself out there, just remember that you’re doing it for your community, and serving your community is the highest honor for a Realtor.
It’s not about us, it’s about serving them.
When you make that subtle mindset shift, it really takes allllllll the pressure off.
If you remove yourself from the equation, you’ll never feel any of these emotions again.
It’s uncomfortable for me to do almost EVERYTHING in my business
But it’s not about me.
The moment I realized that it’s more important for me to serve my community than it is for me to stay in my comfort zone and hoard all of my knowledge, resources, and tools to myself, everything changed.
Stop being afraid
Stop playing small
Start spreading your message and your community will respond.
At this point, you may be convinced that you need to start doing more video to market your real estate business… but you may also be thinking that you have no idea where to start.
This is exactly why I create today’s freebie, the Video Marketing Masterclass!
It will help you get over your fear of the camera and show you how to start getting “come list me” leads from YouTube.
