Social Media Edge - TODAY at noon EST (VIDEO)

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Austin Texas Homes, LLC 453249

There's not much that I can add here that isn't covered in the video below.  I tried for several hours to get YouTube to process this one, then realized that Viddler would work just as well.  Hope you can join us tomorrow to hear Laura Fitton (@pistachio on Twitter).  She knows her stuff!  By the way, I just edited the title above - the show is always on Tuesday. :)

 

Hope you can make it, or catch the recording afterwards.  

Thanks!

Jason,

I like the format by which you make these videos.  where do you get your "jigs" for music for them, and also, what's the best, preferrably free, software to add words and text to your videos?  Thanks for any advice you could pass on!

John

Video cameras with indoor shots are starved for light like vampires for blood. Good video and I let Santa know to ho ho haul some lights down the chimney to help with your video insertions.

Hi John - I used iMovie on the MacBook Pro for this one, but I've used Windows Movie Maker on the PC as well.  Both of these are typically pre-loaded on any machine you buy.  Are you on Mac or PC?  The music for this one came from iLife, which is an Apple product.  They have a lot of "stock" music available there.  http://www.stockmusic.net/ offers a pretty good selection no matter what platform you're on. 

Andrew - While I appreciate the feedback, this was very much a conscious choice.  I'm not going for a slick production, but rather an informal chat feel, like the show itself.  Besides, if I brought in more lights, I would need stage makeup, then I wouldn't be able to afford the key grip and the gaffer.  :)

Pamela - That's odd - did you try refreshing it?  You're the first to have mentioned an issue with the video.  Hope you can join us today!

Michelle - Great!  I like Viddler - it's super-easy.  That being said, I wish I could have managed to get YouTube to process the video on time, since there's a FAR larger audience there.

You look good on screen, The blazing smile is you but really I like your relaxed natural approach. I am still noodling around with video and need to slow down (something you are already aware of...)

Ron - It's today.  I edited the title and re-posted it for a bit more exposure.  It's not a videocast, however, just audio and a cool chat room.  :)

Russell - Thanks, man!  I really appreciate the feedback.  Let me know if you ever need any video help.

Sheila - No worries.  It's every Tuesday at noon EST, if you're interested in catching it "live".  If not, as you mentioned, the archive recordings are always there.
