Hey, this is Sasha. Welcome to another episode here on backstage income where I share with you how to build and grow a profitable business.
Today, what we’re going to do is plan, film, and schedule a month’s worth of videos.
Let’s check out the screen
I want you to start thinking about your schedule.
You want to start looking at it in terms of how do I get things ahead.
Number one — your content should be evergreen and number two — think about batching and doing things together.
That’s the simplest approach.
If you go with these two concepts, you should be able to get ahead in your filming and schedule.
Let’s say you have week 1, week 2, week 3, week 4, and sometimes week 5 — depending on the month. If you produce a video every single Wednesday, you pretty much need to have five videos per month.
If you have your list of titles already — if you have your idea, your title, and a few notes ahead of time — and you know the scene, the location, and the type of filming that you’re going to be doing, then this makes it a lot easier.
Maybe video number 1, video number 3, and video number 5 are very similar. If they’re similar, like for example here, I’m doing a glass board for you. If they’re similar, I will typically pre-film or do the filming for videos one, three, and five together because that way I don’t have to move the video. I don’t have to change the lighting. I don’t have to adjust those things. It makes life a whole lot easier.
If you don’t have that luxury and you have to take things down and pick things back up, then, by all means, figure out a way to mark things on the floor on where do your lights go. That way you can make it as quick and as efficient as possible and you can batch things together.
The tool that I have here is called Airtable
Airtable is really great.
You could structure it however you want. If you’ve never heard of this tool, the link is in the description below.
You can have add your titles, ideas, add in additional notes, links — whatever you want.
That’s a simple example.
If I want to see all the glass videos, what I can do is add a filter where the type of video is a glass video.
Now, I can view all my glass videos. If I want to filter it further, I could do it based on category or let’s just say I want to group it based on categories.
Anyways, that’s ultimately how I approach the filming process.
One of the other ways to streamline the process is to just input in. I just input it in my calendar and from this calendar, we go ahead and feedback to air table as a task to do. From there, one of my assistants or teammates will help out.
As long as you can streamline the process, it really just cuts things down and makes things a lot better and faster.
