Want positive recognition within your community for doing positive something you believe in? Volunteering not money, anyone can do that, your time. Get to know people, understand them and their needs. People can see through those that are on boards for the name on a resume. Build communities from the inside out, with your knowledge and help.
I am making a video for a local cancer society. They are going to do a fund drive, they need a drop off point but more importantly they needed advertising on a shoestring budget. This isn't about my needs or my exposure but it happens anyway. Everyone pushing the drive can show the informational video on their cell phones.
They have a walking advertisement, a brochure and a ready made donation creator and all they have to do is carry their cell phones!
I am donating several other videos created for local businesses that impact the community. One video is for the local firefighters. They have an annual fund raising drive. They use their boots to collect money. I will be creating a video to be used for advertising purposed several days before the drive itself.
I am using my professional videos to create a community visual impact. I do place a shameless plug at the end of the videos. On outlining the club or organization and secondly that my company donated the video. Created For "Organization Name " Donated By "Flexit Realty".
I work with the team members putting together the event and those impacted by the event to show both sides of the organization. This offers a professional layout and creates the right environment to create effective videos. "Think out side the box", not just about the thank you inside the box!
You can create positive energy about your company, agent's if you are a broker and get your agent's involved. This is just one of the ways to add to your community and your personal awareness of the needs within you community with the benefit of never really promoting yourself. Do for others and your community service will create clients and good will.
