I am doing an online event

Tonight at 7pm I am having an online event for my new business where I will show off some of our products, have some games going and give away some prizes. I am hoping this will encourage people to buy from me and give them a chance to see some of our products they might not have seen yet.

The scary part is I also plan on making some videos showing how some of our products work (kids toys mostly) I am really nervous about being on video but I am willing to give it a go. I want to film the videos ahead of time rather than go live to help with the nerves but I'm waiting on my landlord coming round which I have been since mid day so I need to wait till he has been first I guess.

There haven't been that many people that have said they are going to attend the event, but I am hoping more will join in as it is on.

My new business is doing fantastically, I have made my first promotion already! I have taken on my first team member with another joining me on Friday and my sales are seventh top in the company this month! I wont be giving up my day job just yet, but I am really happy with how things are going so far!

When showing how kids toys work, you do not need to "be" in the video. My granddaughter loves watching "shopkins" videos. Some of her favourites show only the person's hands as they open the package. Some children also have their own videos of toys. Presumably their parents take the video and the children's faces are never shown. It does not cut down on any enjoyment or interest in the video because people are watching to see the toy.

PS: I don't know where those links came from - I simply typed the company names and PP turned them into links! Perhaps MegL can explain.

That's very true. Being honest I hate the way I sound recorded also. its something I need to work on for sure because videos get more engagement than any other type of content online these days

Its advertising? I have seen that type of advertising before

It's vig link, I think. I can't turn it off but I understand from Elitecodex that there are no 'returns' from it.
