YouTube Thursdays - Share the Local Scoop

YouTube Thursdays - Sharing the local scoop. 

 

 

Most of us live in communities with little known gems, or quirky things that only the true locals know about. For example, in Camas, there is a private residence known as "the castle." We wrote a post about it in 2013,  The Camas Castle.  It's definitely an oddity that gets attention. And, we think it would be a perfect subject for a video series called, We Know Camas!

 

Another interesting landmark in Camas is the Leadbetter House located on the shores of Lacamas Lake. The Queen Anne Victorian house was actually a gift from parents to their son, and his new bride, Bertha Leadbetter. 

 

Speaking of Lacamas Lake, every Fall, the lake is drained for an annual clean-up. This event would also make an interesting video story. There are competitions and prizes for the most trash picked up, most unusual find, etc. 

 

You get the idea. 

 

We're also considering an expanded version called "We Know Clark County!" Many of the towns in Clark County have interesting names, we think the stories behind the names would be fun to explore via video. For example, Felida was named by a postmaster who wanted to name the post office after his cat. He was denied, but got the last laugh by naming it Felidae (cats), or Felida. 

 

Consider all of the possibilities.  Short and entertaining video stories showcasing how well you know your marketplace could be shared on a multitude of platforms.

Debb,

I love the idea of local videos.  I see them often for our area here, but they are not done by real estate agents.  They are done by surfers and paddle boarders who film dolphins, and other sea life...Happy Thursday!  A

Grant Schneider Bernie and I working on projects around the home, and when we are not real estating, we are working on them. Our weather window to get things done is closing on us. We have large decks that we are sanding and re-staining. It's quite an undertaking and yesterday, I was sanding until the late afternoon.

Yes, Ron and Alexandra Seigel - it might be a good way for agents to get on the radar of more people.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel - there are so many hidden gems, or interesting things to learn about new communities. Many can live their entire life and know very little about their community. I know the majority of people who live in Juneau have never been on the trip we took to the Mendenhall Glacier. In fact, they've never been up close and personal to the glacier.

This convo is my top 2020 business objective - to post good HyperLocal content about the people, places, cool things in my town. There's some good tools out there to help agents get started, overcome your "fear" of being on camera, and getting over the thought that you need expensive equipment. To the contrary, just start, do the thing.  This a wonderful year to help local business owners get more eyeballs on their brands, promote their business and participate in the process. It's a win for everyone!

Debb, great advice.  Years ago I did a video on Aurora Reservoir and a few other areas of interest, and blogged.  They are seen often.

Oh, what sage advice, Debb! I need to get back to doing more of these. I've been falling down on the video job the last few years. My problem is that I don't have anyone to do the editing and that takes SO much time!! 

Thanks for the inspiration, as always!
