YouTube Thursdays - Merry and Bright
Tis the season. What a great opportunity to become a festive spirit in the community with a series of short holiday videos to share on your social media sites. Be sure to save them for other uses too.
A growing number of marketing experts are recommending more face-to-face networking. This is a plus, in order to shoot video snippets, or do live reports, we have to step away from the computer.
Holiday Video Ideas for Social Media Sites
We are currently working on our own holiday video series . Here are few examples of some opportunities we've already identified in our community:
Holiday Sip and Shop
Little Box Friday
Golden Ticket Event
Holly Days Bazaar
Holiday Homes Tour
Small Business Saturday
Script and Video Footage Example
Remember, to keep these social media videos to a minimum. The idea is to quickly share what’s going on. For example, here’s a script idea for our local coat drive.
“Hi Bernie and Debb here at the Sumner House in downtown Camas for the Share the Warmth Coat Drive. You can donate coats, hats, gloves, and scarves until 6:30 PM. Thanks for helping us share the warmth this holiday season.”
Video footage - Showing people collecting the coats - including one of us giving them our donation.
There’s no need to add anything. In fact, including your contact information, or asking if anyone wants to buy or sell a home, would really take away from the point of these quick seasonal drop-ins. If your social media sites are well-branded, people know what you do.
Bonus for New Year
Imagine the great montage of shots you’ll have for creating a longer video to share after the holidays. We think it’s a powerful way make connections, show community involvement, and build goodwill. What do you think?
