Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Many people get confused when we ask them to share their success stories with us through videos, motivational stories and interviews. Hence to help you all we have decided to bring to you some simple facts that might help you in case you get stuck at some point.
These FAQs are compiled on queries asked by new users and members related to common knowledge gaps.
The purpose of FAQs is to provide you with the information you need on frequent questions or concerns.
What Is A Success Story?
A story that motivates and inspires others to get out of their comfort zone and do something different is a success story.
What Does Success Story Mean To Us At RNTalks?
When we at RNTalks speak of a success story, we do not mean that you have to be a well-known celebrity, bureaucrat, a politician, an established lawyer or a successful businessman to share your story with us.
Does RNTalks Have An Aversion Towards Them?
NO. It’s not that we have anything against them. It is just that YOU are more important for us than they are. They have all the limelight that they need and maybe more. But our aim is to make a hero out of a common man.
What Is So Special About RNTalks?
Our goal is to bring your stories forward for everyone to read, listen and view. And in the process make a hero out of the common man, youth or an ageing person by sharing their real-life experiences.
What Kind of Stories Do We Share Here On RNTalks?
We share stories that are full of challenges that people commonly face in life-like emotions, toxic people, unfairness in life, your job, positive thinking, meeting people, overcoming a medical situation, fighting cancer, moving from obesity to being fit, taking up challenges in life after crossing your 50s, and complexes suffered by yourself.
What is the Preferred Language in Which You Take Submissions?
Primarily this is an English site and we take only English posts. All interviews will also be conducted in English only.
But, if you have a language problem then the second language that we can accept is Hindi, (image only). The text will be translated into English.
What Should Be The Language Medium in the Videos?
We prefer English but Hinglish is also acceptable. Use keywords in English if you want. So, basically all three languages English, Hinglish and Hindi are okay with us as long as you are able to communicate with the audience.
Where All Will My Video Be Shared?
Your video will be shared on all our social media channels including LinkedIn, twitter Instagram, Pinterest and Facebook, and also on the RNTalks website in your article/success story or on the video page.
Can We Share Videos?
Yes, you can share videos but ensure that the mobile is in a horizontal position for better quality.
Record the video in HD.
The video length can be from 3mins to 5mins.
Which Position Is Better For A Video-Portrait(Vertical) Or Landscape(Horizontal)?
For making videos keep the phone in a horizontal position as it covers the whole screen and there are no negatives spaces on the left and right.
Also, use earphones while recording if your mic is weak or if you are in a crowded place.
Though we suggest that you avoid crowded places while making your videos as the focus of the audience watching you shifts from you to the crowd.
Also, the noise behind is a constant disturbing factor and thus reduces the standard of the video.
Be careful of the lighting while recording a video. The place should be well lit and your face should not be shadowed and clearly visible to people watching it.
Lastly, be well-groomed when recording a video. We don’t want to look shabby.
Can We Share Our Photographs?
Nothing can be better than that. Your photographs help in making the story/article/interview authentic. Also, people would like to know who they are reading about.
Can We Share The Published Post on Our Social Media?
Of course, you can! Nothing will give us more pleasure than that. That is our goal. To make a hero of a common man.
Can I Share My Audio Story On Your Platform?
Yes, you can but it will be published with a thumbnail so you must provide us with a photograph in a horizontal/landscape format for the same.
I love To Write. Can I Share My Articles On Your Website?

- Career Counselling
- Story Telling

What Should Be The Length Of The Article?
