When is communicating clearly important? Always, sometimes, seldom, never? What specific, memorable, examples come to mind?
When is necessary to always be clear? What are the consequences of doing so or not being clear when it is necessary?
What instances come to mind when it is good, but not necessary? What are examples of each in your experience?
Are there times it is better to be a little vague? If so, why? What are examples that would illustrate that? Is it at work, in your personal life, elsewhere?
Is Clarity Always Good?
What about times it is absolutely necessary to be unclear – or downright deceptive? … not to hurt somebody’s feelings? … to prevent somebody who is dangerous from hurting others … to get the information out as fast as possible with no delay for details? What have you seen or experienced?
Many people have examples of at least some of these in their lives. Have you seen people protected – or hurt – by either extreme or one in the middle? Share it to give others guidelines and examples why certain methods are best in various situations.

Or you can use various electronic devices to draw as you speak. It is possible to create a written presentation in advance on your iPad and incorporate it into your video.
With a simple subject, you can speak and cover the basics. With a complex topic, visual aids cover the details quickly while staying within the one minute limit.

First, you might want to become the “cheerleader” and inspiration of your company or someone who represents this aspect in front of the camera. Whether it is you or someone else who can inspire the audience, it is important that the person who speaks in the video can directly communicate and get the message across to the viewers and consumers.
Communication is key here. There should be a direct connection with the audience and a level of information passed on which the consumer finds helpful. This kind of helpfulness to the consumer leads to making decisions about product and service choices.
Solve a Problem for Your Viewers
The speaker should inform the audience with clear communication about how the product can help find the solution or be the solution to the dilemma or problem, or just plain, the right choice for what they are looking for. The communication should be compelling. The words should not attempt to sell, but more to help, suggest, recommend, and ultimately, convince the viewer and consumer, that you are helping them.
Your Spokesperson is the Face of Your Business
When picking the spokesperson, consider yourself or the person in the office who encourages and has a smile for everyone. This kind of natural enthusiasm may be the on-camera inspirational talent that you may need.
Be consistent with the encouraging language, words, communication and enthusiasm from the speaker. The energy coming forward should motivate, inspire, and encourage the viewer to make “informed” and “right” choices and decisions about what to do and follow your call to action.
