YouTube Thursdays - Video Stories of Love, Inspiration, and Soul

YouTube Thursdays - Stories of Love, Inspiration, and Soul!



A recent post about different branding perspectives from Ron and Alexandra Seigel, really inspired us. Therefore. we are considering the varying viewpoints to tell our own brand stories as illustrated in their post. This is still a work in progress, however, we wanted to share what we have to date. 


Love - Passion for the environment, beautiful surroundings, and how Nature heals. 


Inspiration - Nature's healing can happen at home too through gardening, soothing vistas, and reflective spots created throughout the landscape. 


Soul - Connecting people to properties that bring them pleasure and rejuvenation. 

Once we are crystal clear that we have identified these three principles well, we will begin creating ideas for new brand story videos. 


We encourage you to do the same. It takes thought and focus. In our opinion, time spent delving into your brand will likely help you futher clarify the unique aspects you bring to your target demographics. And, that's pretty much the name of the game.

Debb, great ideas to think about prior to shooting a new video.   Video does rank for SEO, and good to do some every so often.
