On Camera with K’ai: Jessica Morrison and K’ai discuss video and digital media for leadership and executive coaches
In this interview, Jessica Shade Morrison of Seaside Digital Design and K’ai Roberts Fu of Magnus Media Group Video Production discuss video and digital marketing for executive and leadership coaches.
Are you an executive or leadership coach who has been wondering how to set yourself apart from the competition online? Today K’ai Roberts Fu, of Magnus Media Group Video Production – a video production company – https://www.magnusmediavideo.com/ and Jessica Shade Morrison, founder of Seaside Digital Design And Marketing – https://www.seasidedigitaldesign.com/ – talk about digital branding and website design for coaches, and how you can use a digital footprint to promote yourself and your business online.
Jessica brings 20 years of experience with sales and marketing with multi-million dollar companies and now primarily works with website design for executive and leadership coaches. She believes image creates impact; therefore, digital branding must set one apart from the competition and match the product provided to clients.
K’ai and Jessica discuss what digital marketing encompasses. Jessica defines a digital presence as consisting of your website, social media, email, video content that you produce, and anything that makes up a digital footprint. A digital footprint is actually your digital branding that is your own marketing to set you apart as unique.
K’ai asks Jessica to further explain particular marketing challenges for coaches, and how to overcome them.
Jessica explains that that niching down is challenging because it requires specializing in one area to distinguish the niche. Niching down draws referrals more easily because the marketing exactly matches the service from inception, rather than presenting a diffuse presence. This distinguishing branding in representative imagery, graphics, etc. should be consistent in all the business’ digital media across the internet.
K’ai supports giving clarity and a clear demonstration across the entire internet that represents who the businessperson is, what they do and specifically who they work with.
Jessica believes it is also important to the end user to know exactly what particular difference it will make if they invest in or hire this company. “What’s in it for me” is the key to a potential client.
K’ai requests Jessica to talk about the importance of incorporating more video in marketing to set the business apart and to express how the business is going to benefit the client.
Jessica asserts that video is the fastest way to gain the “know and trust” factor that resonates and connects with potential clients.
K’ai asks Jessica to discuss balancing personally produced recordings versus professionally produced video.
Jessica states that personal recordings for social media is expected, but strongly advises that to immediately attract clients, one should invest in professional media, such as photography, videography and anything with a digital footprint, especially for your website.
K’ai and Jessica discuss share experiences of overcoming the fear or discomfort of being on camera. Both agree that professional video reduces camera fear by providing guidance, and including re-takes that result in a product that you are comfortable with others seeing.
K’ai and Jessica conclude by emphasizing the accelerated rapport that professional video introduces to marketing.
