La Quinta, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/29/2013 -- Live Your Message, a company that helps business owners succeed online, is about to launch a new global program called the “30 Day Video Challenge.” The challenge, which will begin on May 1, 2013, asks participants to step in front of a camera every day for 30 days as a way to help effectively spread the word about themselves and their business.
The innovative 30 day challenge began as a short video announcement on the Live Your Message website. Marisa Murgatroyd, the founder of the company, mentioned that she would be spending the next month videotaping herself once a day. Within less than 24 hours, Murgatroyd says, her simple message began to spontaneously spread worldwide, with people from Spain, Iceland, Australia and other countries expressing the desire to do the same thing. Already, more than 150 people have committed to being part of the challenge and doing what they can to help their businesses succeed.
One reason the 30 Day Challenge is taking off so quickly, Murgatroyd said, is that people are truly beginning to understand that the future of their business rests on learning to be more comfortable in front of the camera. Thousands of people across the globe have made the choice to make themselves accessible by video to their customers, and in doing so, are getting past their reluctance to be filmed. Gone are the days when people could use excuses like “I don’t look good on camera” or “I don’t even know what I would talk about,” to avoid putting videos on their websites.
“The moment’s come where everybody has seemed to realize that if they want to get their message out on a massive scale they need to be on video,” Murgatroyd said, adding that beyond knowing how to use their recording equipment, people need to achieve a higher level of comfort in front of the camera.
“And that’s what the 30 Day Challenge is all about: stepping in front of the camera once a day, every day, for 30 days, no matter what.”
Through her work at Live Your Message, Murgatroyd sees tangible proof every day of the power of videos and their ability to help generate sales. She notes that video marketing is now the number one tool that people can use to help build their credibility and relatability, and allow their customers and clients to look into their eyes and feel a personal connection. As an example of how powerful video can be, Murgatroyd points out that YouTube is now the third largest website in the world and is being used more frequently as a search engine to learn about people and companies.
“Simply adding a video to a sales page can increase conversions up to 80 percent. People are four to five times more likely to buy from you if they can actually see you and hear you,” Murgatroyd said.
Based on the comments on Live Your Message’s blog from people who have already signed up for the challenge, it is destined to become a worldwide phenomenon.
For example, Carolyn T. from Calgary Alberta is thrilled to be part of the program.
“I’m so in! I’ve been promising to do video for months and never actually turned on the cam...seize the day,” she wrote.
