Barbara Niven | Media Marketing


Most people have a certain level of anxiety or fear when facing a camera. Many of Barbara’s clients have never done it before, but every one of them creates stunning videos in their very first session. Barbara will ensure you come across like a Pro too. If you’re already good, get ready to become extraordinary!

Personal guidance, star quality lighting, and professional hair & makeup make all the difference.


Why? Bad video is worse than no video at all. Poor production values or performance skills will actually decrease your perceived value, meaning what you can charge for your services. No matter how excellent you are at your expertise, you’ll be judged by how you come across in a video or presentation. But professional, polished videos and marketing materials brand you as top-notch, someone who commands top dollar.


Barbara Niven will personally direct you on-camera and guide you through every step of the process. You’ll be thrilled with your soaring confidence and professional image – in videos that get results!




Stop the guesswork and quickly learn techniques to become confident and authentic as you talk to the camera. This also translates directly into Public Speaking and interview skills. You’ll not only learn what to say, but exactly how to say it too. It’s easy when you learn the secrets!

During the process, Barbara Niven will help in every aspect of developing your message and “platform” including talking points, sound bites, signature phrases, press kit materials, info products, media strategies, and performance skills. You’ll develop a Media Action Plan, plus marketing tools to ensure success!
