Another Big Milestone Accomplished

Last Update: October 11, 2020

Hey dear WA friends,

just want to share another exciting milestone with you. I've persuaded my boyfriend to show up in my last video. The picture you see above is the YouTube thumbnail.

As many of you know, I started making videos in the beginning of this year complementary to my health and beauty website (that is extremely hard to rank) and my first videos were just me sitting there talking. Boring :)

Then I thought it would be better to turn my articles to videos and started with that. My boyfriend likes video editing, unlike me, so he's been doing all the work with visuals and audio. My work is just to provide the script (usually one of my articles, slightly modified) and do the voice over.

In the last week's video we were both doing the voice over to break the monotony of just one person speaking. And now I've convinced him that it would be more entertaining for the audience if we were both there, at least for a part of it.

This video is about coffee alternatives, actually about my favorite drinks like cocoa etc. My boyfriend is a coffee lover and he makes jokes there. It was fun but also a lot of work.

I'm excited about my blogging and video journey. It might take a long time to break through but it's definitely worth it.

If you are thinking about starting a YouTube channel, go for it! It's much easier to appear in the search results with generic keywords than in google. It can perfectly complement your website and bring you more traffic!

Tools we use for the videos:
YouTube thumbnails are created in Canva.
Video SEO has been done using VidIQ.
Video editing software: Filmora Wondershare.

If you want to see the latest video, you can find my YouTube channel in my profile. Hope you'll enjoy it.

Hope you are having a nice weekend!

Love
Lenka

Thanks for sharing your resource on this post Lenka and congrats on your successful video post in YT. I've always wanted to try but too shy in front of camera. Maybe I'll just do a voice over. I don't know yet but as I learned here, I am finding out that I have to focus on one thing first.

I understand, Rey, many people are shy to speak in front of camera. I used to be more introvert when I was younger but with age I just care less and less what other people think about me.
But not everyone has to make videos.
Just focus on your website and time will show.

Lenka, thank you for sharing your strategy and progress.
This is a very excellent way to direct organic traffic to your website, I agree.

It is also good that you have support.
That sure does make a big difference.

I am going to look at your channel and videos now.

Have a good day.

Cassi, I'm still a beginner regarding strategy, I have to learn a lot from you and others who have their strategy planned wisely. I know it's absolutely necessary but it's my Achille's heel.

I hope you'll like the videos.

I am glad that I have support and we both have been enjoying the process. It's also a nice distraction from writing for me. However, it's very time-consuming.

Thanks for your support.
Have a nice day!

You are always welcome, Lenka.

Just finished watching the video and I absolutely loved it!

We are huge coffee and cocoa growers and drinkers here in Trinidad, so it hit home for me.

I enjoyed the fun banter between you and Max.
It made it much more engaging and I strongly suggest that you keep building on that.

Well done!

This is great Lenka. Creating videos which people enjoy is definitely a great way to build your business and credibility online.
I’ll go and find your new video now as I’m a coffee lover too. ☕️

Thank you very much, Dave. My boyfriend is also a big coffee lover and he can't imagine giving up coffee. But to my surprise, he likes matcha latte with milk. You never know :)

It all sounds really exciting Lenka, I'm so pleased that you are really getting into it and enjoying the process. It no longer feels like work when you are also having so much fun.

It really is more exciting than I thought it would. We are already thinking about what the next video will be about.
Thank you for your support, my friend. I'm grateful I can share my journey with you.

I'm a coffee lover, Lenka - but I'll keep an open mind when checking out your video 👍

Thanks for listing the tools - what are you shooting your videos with? Are you using your smartphone?

Isaiah 😊

My boyfriend is also a coffee lover, Isaiah, I'd say a coffee addict! :) Yeah, we were shooting the beginning of the video with an i-phone and then the short videos are from libraries.
Thank you for stopping by, my friend!
