How do I ask my circle of influence to view and comment on my video post

When asking your circle of influence to view and comment on your video post, you can follow a similar approach as when asking for feedback on an article. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to make your request:



PRIMARY OBJECTIVE: Increase Content Exposure & Engagement

KEY TAKE AWAY:  Expand your reach and audience


READ TIME:  1 minute

NEXT STEP:  Track results, follow up with contacts, respond to feedback

CATEGORY: Getting Started

HASHTAGS:  #contentengagement


Personalize your message:

Address each person individually and show that you value their opinion and support.

Explain the context:

Briefly introduce the video you’ve created and provide some background information. Let them know why their feedback is important to you and how it could contribute to the quality and success of the video.

Be specific about what you’re asking for:

Clearly state that you would appreciate their support by watching the video and providing comments or feedback. Ask for their thoughts on the content, production quality, overall impact, or any specific areas they might have expertise in.

Provide necessary details:

Include a link to the video or attach it to your message, making it easily accessible for them to watch. Specify any deadlines if you have time constraints or if you plan to publish or promote the video.

Express gratitude:

Thank them in advance for taking the time to watch and comment on your video. Let them know that their input is highly valued and that their support means a lot to you.

Follow up politely:

If you don’t receive a response within a reasonable time frame, it’s okay to send a polite follow-up message. However, avoid being pushy or demanding, as people may have their own commitments and may not be able to respond immediately.

Here’s an example message: 

“Dear [Name],
