1. Start with the Story of You

Don’t recite your resume and qualifications. Engage your viewer with an interesting story about why you do what you do and how you can help them. Or grab their attention with an interesting statistic or something that they did not know. Then introduce yourself and your background.

2. Follow up with the “Meat” of Your Content.

Talk about what you want to talk about. Are you educating, entertaining, informing?

3. Give a Call to Action.

What do you want your viewers to do? Call you for legal services? Subscribe to your newsletter?
