For my squeeze page video, my about page video, and my lead magnet video I used teleprompter software on my laptop. It worked well from the standpoint of making me look more into the camera. There were other issues but it worked well from that standpoint. I used printed notes for my introductory membership lesson. I wasn’t super happy with the on-camera result. It was OK but not great.
I moved to mind maps after that because I found I could create the mind map in much less than the 10×10 matrices were taking me. So it was much better in that regard. The creation time isn’t really the issue. If I have to stop and re-position the mind map, what takes time is editing the video. TBH, that hasn’t been too bad so far. Not as bad as I expected anyway.

That’s what I have to work on the most. I have the screen behind the camera when I record but I think I either have to raise the level of the camera or lower the level of the monitor. I current have the monitor sitting on two think “For Dummies” books to raise it up so I can see it when I record. Problem is, I think I have it too high.
