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

Santa Parade

Holly Days Bazaar 

Food Drive 

Toy Drive
Coat Drive 

Holiday Homes Tour

Tree Lighting

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?

ViewHomes™ grew out of our passion for nature, beautiful surroundings, and peaceful environments. Starting together in an urban environment, over the years we've gravitated towards areas with smaller populations and less density. We now enjoy our lifestyle in a rural environment, but with close proximity to metropolitan areas where we appreciate all the amenities of fine restaurants, shopping, and an easy drive to an international airport.
Living in ViewHomes™ is like having “elbowroom for the soul”.

Hi again Debb,
I do enjoy reading John Henry, Florida Architect blog posts very much.  I also enjoyed the video. Several single friends and I often discuss doing a "Golden Girls" house for our later years. When we get ready, John would definitely be someone to consider for design.

Debb. Lots of great ideas for Christmas videos.  I would like the holly bazaar.  John Henry did a great video. I am sure he appreciates the highlight.

Great ideas, Debb... although I doubt I'll do anything this year. This is something I'd need to plan for well in advance as my holiday marketing plan is already underway and also focuses on considerable outreach to past clients. Not enough time to squeeze in more.

Thanks a lot for some terrific holiday video (and post) ideas, Debb and Bernie. I really need to get out there and just do a few, even if they are really short and simple.

Thank you for sharing John's video - it's a good one!!
