One of my favorite producers at FOX Business is producing a question and answer session on taxes. She’s looking for video selfies of people who have questions about their taxes. If you’re interested in being on National TV, here’s your chance. Needless to say, if they pick your bit you’ll then have a bit of video of yourself to use in your promotions, on your FB page, to impress your parents, whatever.
Just shoot a :10 to :15 second video of yourself asking a tax question you’re interested in such as: “Can I write off my cat’s vet bills?” “Is my farm deduction transferable?” “Are my veteran’s benefits going to increase this year?”
Remember that the network wants something interesting to look at so if you ask about your cat, have it in your arms. If you ask about your farm benefits, film yourself sitting on a tractor or maybe dress up like Grant Wood’s American Gothic. If you’re asking about veteran’s benefits, wear your uniform.
Remember too that quality counts so check your lighting, the audio, and anything else that will make your snippet look and sound as good as possible.
