Introducing Faith the Talking CFO

Filed under: Social Media — by Glenda at 11:18 am on Tuesday, December 29, 2009

The week before Christmas I participated in a webinar series on social media organized and hosted by Dana Dunn of Women with Passion and Purpose. Among the lineup of passionate women speakers was Pam Brossman talking about using video to promote your own business. I wasn’t too sure how I could implement video into my own business – talking in front of a camera isn’t really my thing, except for once a year. Then my friend Suzie Cheel suggested that I could create PowerPoint videos.

Later that evening my ever-informative husband Darrell pointed me to a Bob Schultz video that apparently was viewed several hundred thousand time the first weekend it was up. Viewing the video, I was unsure what the big deal was about a photo of three basset hound puppies with text balloons overhead. But if that is what catches people attention and goes viral, perhaps there’s something to it!

That got me thinking. My brain was churning while wrapping gifts, eating turkey with family and indulging in way too many yummy goodies. After all that, I am excited to introduce Faith the Talking CFO…

This video is intended as an experiment, to figure the technical aspect. Future videos will have more compelling messages by Faith.

Do you think this crazy idea has potential?

If you enjoyed this post, consider buying me a chai tea latte. Thanks kindly.

Well done Glenda. The important thing is you got out there and shot a video. This will be one of many. If you have a message, which you do then video is a great way to get it to your target audience.
Can’t wait to see more.
Cheers

Love it Glenda! I was worried that I would have trouble understanding you when you spoke…but your English accent was no problem at all. ;)

Love from your smart-assed friend,
Jacqui

Thanks Jacqui! Actually the voice of Faith is a text-to-speech voice with an Australian accent. ;)

Yes, your crazy idea has potential. When you are ready to move beyond Faith into recording your authentic self that is when it will click for you that you are on the right path.

In the meantime, let Faith be your guide as you figure out the best way to communicate via video.

There is not one way to do this, all you have to do is figure out your way.

You continue to inspire. Funny hearing “Faith speak” – your cat with an Aussie accent. You’ll have her saying “no worries, mate” soon, I’m sure.

Thank you, Des! That’s the laid back angle I’ve been looking for. Now to get her talking about accessibility stuff…
