Step 1: Write a script for your Video. We recommend a 1-2 minute long video and therefore the script should be written accordingly. Here is a recommended format.

  1. Introduce yourself and share your MTP.
  2. Give a brief background of your expertise and experience.
  3. Explain what you look to bring to the community and what you look to gain from the community.
  4. Share your goals for the year and exciting projects you are working on.
  5. End with a call to action in terms of whether you would like people to get in touch with you and how you look to make an impact.

Step 2: Setup your Mobile phone or Laptop Camera in a way that the video is portrait and stable.

Step 3: Make sure that you have light shining into your face so that you can be seen clearly and have a simple and neutral background (an office is perfect).

Step 4: Make sure that you are in a quiet space so that you are not distracted by noise.

Step 5: Film the video. Be natural and let your personality shine through. Do not try and be someone that you are not.

Step 8: Share your profile with your network in a post on LinkedIn.
