My good friend Gerry Oginski (a New York Medical Malpractice Attorney and creator of the Lawyers Video Studio) posted the below message to his Facebook page and with his permission I thought I would share it, as it’s the perfect example of building trust with your audience.

Then, proceed to tell your viewer the story.
Keep it short.
Keep it simple.
Keep it relevant to the message in your video.

Most will not.
Then, after you’ve told them WHY you just told that story, you MUST tell your viewer what to do next.
Yeah, it’s just that simple. Building trust sounds complicated but in reality it’s downright common sense stuff that most people over look.
