081: Charisma on Camera with Sandra Dee Robinson

Charisma on Camera

Sandra Dee Robinson

Charisma on Camera may come naturally to some. For those of you who are more like a deer in the headlights, guest Sandra Dee Robinson can make you ready for your close up.

Sandra Dee Robinson has spent nearly all of her life in front of a camera: as an actor (including Another World, Sunset Beach, Bold and the Beautiful, General Hospital, Days of Our Lives, Two and a Half Men, Criminal Minds, Secret Life of an American Teenager and TV movies) and as a TV host and product spokesperson.

You might think then, talking directly into camera or speaking on a stage would seem like a natural thing for her to do. Far from it! “I was extremely shy but comfortable behind a character (acting). When people began to ask me to support a charity on stage, or sell a product, even be interviewed and they said, ‘Just be yourself!’ I was so lost.”

As it usually happens with persistence, there came a day of a breakthrough; exhaustion and a funny circumstance onstage of an infomercial shoot had Sandra unexpectedly enjoying being “herself” on a stage. She was relaxed, having fun, and getting her message across in her own unique way. Suddenly, moments of her training experiences came back to her and it all finally started to make sense!

What Sandra teaches at Charisma on Camera is a super-condensed and individualized combination of her training and experience that can help anyone feel better, look better and perform better without all of the years of frustration and pain, and outrageous spending that she did!

Sandra has been coaching entertainment reporters and television hosts, and she founded Charisma on Camera to expand her clientele to professionals in any field. Her current clients include authors, life coaches, experts in their fields that want to find their star qualities, confidence, and comfort level to establish themselves as an expert guest, successful speaker or host their own show. – See more at:charismaoncamera.com

049: Video Marketing with Author Alfred Poor

Video Marketing

Alfred Poor

“Power Marketing” …  online videos used as a powerful and cost-effective strategy for small businesses. Most Small business owners don’t have the time or money to focus on marketing. In most cases, they buy some ads and put up a sign and hope for the best. In fact, the traditional ways don’t work anymore to help companies get found by prospective customers and clients (except for a few niches such as bail bondsmen and insurance brokers). Adding video to your website gives  a competitive advantage, but the big surprise is that it can take very little time and money, and you don’t have to own a computer or even touch a camera. A video not only makes it more likely that your prospects will find you, but it also makes them more likely to buy from you as well.

Alfred Poor, PhD, is president of The Center for Small Business, which is dedicated to helping small businesses grow and prosper by delivering practical solutions designed to make the most of a company’s scarce resources: time and money. He is a speaker and writer with an international reputation, and is the author of more than a dozen books including “Power Marketing for Small Business: How you can boost sales with low-cost video.” To learn more about Alfred and his work, visit: www.alfredpoor.com
