Please use this form to send in your monthly content for the Emerging Wellness Professional Task Force.

Our objective is to have two items from you per month.

There is a sign-up form for each item below, in case one member of your task force wants to do the 10-minute interview and another wants to submit a one-minute video or a blog article. Once you sign up, you can download tips and instructions for providing these different items.

One item will always be a 10-minute audio mini-podcast interview via SKYPE by Caroline Carlson. This will be recorded on the 2nd Tuesday of the month at 6 pm Central time.

There is a choice between two options for the second item:

A) A short video with a 2-3 line summary

or

B) A written blog article.

NWI will utilize the video or article in on the NWI Blog and the mini-interview will be posted on our podcasts page. Videos or articles submitted will be due by the 28th day of the month before, to allow time to have it ready to include in our newsletter goes out at the beginning of each month.

Below are suggestions for each of the channel options available to you. Please email Caroline Carlson with any questions at caroline@nationalwellness.org

ONE-MINUTE VIDEO

  • Decide what the objective of your video is.
  • Note some talking points.
  • Make sure your light source is in front of you, not behind you, and if possible not overhead (natural light is best if possible).
  • Record somewhere that does not have a lot of background noise. We suggest using a microphone if at all possible. Whether you use a microphone or not, please try to record in a quiet place (if outdoors, avoid recording on a windy day).
  • If you have one, use a tripod for your phone to keep the image steady. Have a friend set up the shot so that the camera is at your eyeline or above. Be sure to leave a little space over your head, and give yourself a little distance from the screen.
  • Please dress professionally in solid colors (avoid patterns), in something you are comfortable wearing. We will add a lead-in and -out and the logo.
  • Be sure to leave a bit of recording at the start and finish with you in a still position and smiling into the camera, so we can edit and add a lead-in and -out.
  • Make sure you are not in front of a distracting background (too much movement, bright colors, busy patterns, etc...).
  • Try to speak and move naturally, without your hands shoved in your pockets, but not moving too much in front of you. Relax and smile! Please submit a short written summary to go with your video, so we have some context with which to post it to our website and/or newsletter/social media. This can be just a 2-3 line summary of what you will be covering. Please also include a title for the video and keywords we can add when we upload it.

BLOG ARTICLE

  • The goal word count is between 900 to 1500 words. You can go longer if you wish, but we don’t recommend going over 2500 words.
  • Send in any of your own photos that we have permission to use with the article. We recommend using one picture every500 words. If you don’t have photos, we’ll add in stock images to go with your article.
  • Per the submission form, please provide a brief biographical sketch so that we can give you credit in your by-line and a link back to your website or email if you like.
  • A photo not mandatory, but highly recommended for a more personal connection with the audience.

AUDIO (10-Minute Mini-podcast Interview)

  • Make a list of topics you feel comfortable providing helpful tips on for Emerging Wellness Professionals. We will use one topic per mini-podcast.
  • For each topic you list, create a list of questions for us to ask you for each mini-podcast. List as many questions as you need to fill 10 minutes. The number of questions will depend upon your answer length. Try out your answers and time them to see.
  • You will be instructed to list your interview questions on your content submission form so that we can prepare to ask them when we record. There are spaces for five questions on the form, after which you can add spaces for more questions as you need them.
  • These mini-podcasts are recorded at 6 pm Central time on the second Tuesday of each month. If that time does not work for you, please let us know in the submissions form. While we can make an occasional exception, if this time does not work for you regularly, we suggest that you do not participate in this channel of marketing content.
  • We use SKYPE to record podcasts. You will be sent the NWI Emerging Wellness Professional email and password to log in to SKYPE after you sign up for your interview.
  • Sound quality is very important. The call will sound best if you answer it via SKYPE on a desktop computer if possible. If you only have your phone, we can try that. Either way we’ll get the best sound when you use a headset and microphone, or earbuds with an on-cord microphone. If you have any questions about microphone issue or would like more information, please don’t hesitate to call Caroline at 715-342-2969, or email her at caroline@nationalwellness.org
  • Per the submission form, please provide a brief biographical sketch so that we can give you credit in your by-line and a link back to your website or email if you like.
  • A photo is not mandatory but highly recommended so that listeners can put a face to your voice.
