YouTube Thursdays - Fourth of July Video Ideas

Real Estate Broker/Owner with ViewHomes of Clark County - Nature As Neighbors

YouTube Thursdays - Holiday Video Marketing 



Holidays are a great reason to get in touch with your SOI. We plan to send out an email early next week wishing our clients a Happy Fourth of July. There are a variety of themes for a storyboard too.  


Here are just a few ideas. 


Short Interview with the local Fire chief regarding personal firework safety and rules. (Providing they are still legal in your area!)

Short interview with a local parade particpant talking about the upcoming Fourth of July parade. 

The best hotdog in town. 

Grilling tips. 

Things to do in (your town) on the Fourth of July. 

Tips for keeping pets calm and safe. 

Favorite picnic recipe.



Or you can keep it generic, as we chose to do in our short video. 



However you celebrate Independence Day, big or small, quiet or loud, we wish you a safe and Happy Fourth of July celebration. 


Much like Anita Clark 's Facebook Fridays, we encourage you to subscribe to each other's YouTube Channels - and take a minute to "like" or leave a comment. You can also add your own YouTube Channel in the comments below, and ask for subscribers. Be sure to subscribe back though - it's quid pro quo!

Good ideas!  I'll need to personally research the best hot dog around for my readers! And maybe also make sure we all know where the best strawberry shortcake can be found, as well. ;-) Happy 4th!

Hannah Williams Hope it turns into heaven soon. We are sort of going through the same. Very particular clients, too little houses to choose from - and educating the sellers as to "fair" market value. :)

Love the ideas, Debb! Thank you so much for sharing. I really enjoyed your 'generic' video - short but, upbeat and patriotic as well.
