Hey! Want to unlock the full course?
Getting in front of the camera can be a daunting idea, especially for those new to content creation. It's an entirely personal decision. I believe that as a creator, there are a bunch of compelling reasons to be on camera. I also understand that some people might be uncomfortable with this, and that's perfectly okay!
Instead of imposing a firm choice, I'll offer some points to think about and possibly convince you to take the leap and appear on camera.
The most obvious advantage of being on camera is the rapport you build with your viewers. The camera enables you to create a more personal connection with the audience compared to a faceless narration.
With each video or course, viewers become familiar with you, leading to a sense of trust. The mere sight of you on the internet will be enough for them to link the content with you. A disembodied voice might find it challenging to compete with such a connection.
Your on-screen presence gives you an opportunity to add to your content with hand gestures, facial expressions, and other visual aids, thus better engaging your audience. Especially in cases where the content being shown is limited, your on-camera presence can bridge this gap, and enhance the overall viewer experience.
