Bloopers: Are they funny, do they work?
(watch the video or scroll down to read the transcript)
Hi, I’m Rob Anspach, come join me. Bloopers are one of those things that entertain people. They engage people. So, if you screw up, if you make mistakes, let people know, show them your bloopers. Yeah! Not every video is going to turn out perfect. I know I’ve made some. But you know what? Your fans, friends, followers (your audience) loves to laugh, so why not allow them to laugh at your expense. When I coach my clients some of them are professionals they wear suits and ties they need to know their clients see them as human.
Bloopers do that!
So if you make a lot of videos and you mess up, take those mistakes, those bloopers and make them into a reel that you can share with your audience. Because they’re going to see you in whole different light. They’re going to respect you more. Why? Because, you feel comfortable enough to make fun of yourself and to entertain your audience…it makes you human. They can trust you better. Because you’re not trying to be perfect. This is the same reason why the success of America’s Funniest Videos is still on TV. People love bloopers.
They love to see people mess up. It’s not that they want to make fun of you, it’s that they want to laugh with you.
If you have bloopers put them out there, show people, get them to know you as a person and get them to know your funny side.
