YouTube Thursdays - AR Video Peeps

By
Education & Training with Tech Training for You!

Have you been following along in this rebooted YouTube Thursdays series? You can use that link if you want to catch up on the previous posts.

We are going to take a break this week from teaching new editing skills. Have you started your homework assignments yet? You can use this week to catch up.

Meanwhile, this week, let's take a look at the group of ActiveRain members that have been trail blazing a path in the video world. I may have missed some, and I'd like you to chime in by making a comment if I have!

I also wanted to highlight the "Honorable Mentions" because that means there is at least some beginning important steps taken to promote yourself via video creation. Sometimes a YouTube channel is just a collection of listings videos that you get from the photographer that you pay for the shoot. While these are important, it hasn't helped us to get to know YOU better. For that, if you stay tuned each week in this series, we'll get you to that goal.

about Wanda

When Debb first started the YouTube Thursdays group, one of the goals she had was to draw attention to the work other members have done. When you see the links above, you can jump over into the YouTube environment to interact there. Subscriptions, likes, and comments are a big deal in the YouTube world to help promote the content of a creator in the search and suggest algorithms on the platform. A few clicks of your mouse can be a big boost.

Andy and Charlie are the leaders of the pack (no surprises there). But both of them in true AR spirit are truly givers of their time to assist the rest that want to learn. Both have spent their time on special sessions of the weekly zoom call to help all who attended. Did you make it?

To wrap up this week's post, I'm going to introduce you to Karin Carr a real estate agent in Savannah, Georgia. In 2016, Karin started making YouTube videos to help her real estate business when she had recently moved to a new city. The videos were a dramatic success. She afterward started teaching others about YouTube for marketing themselves. She has written books and has a paid course. But whether or not you choose the paid offerings, she offers a whole lot of great advice if you subscribe to her video channel. Here's a recent video that Karin shared.

Hi Craig,
The video by Karin is great. Do It Scared! We all have to start at the beginning.  I appreciate the list of ARers with video channels. I subscribe to some of them but not all.

Feb 22, 2024 06:20 AM

Thanks! Charlie said it and Karin say it, just be yourself. Show yourself in the video. Let them see your real personality. Let them see that you are a pro at what you do. They will call you up as if they already know you. Carol Williams

Thank you for the mention and quiet the the group to be listed with. Its been sometime since last making a video, its been tough to generate new ideas for myself yet this should spur, not curb, my enthusiasm.

PS. The link to my shorts goes to another channel. Here is my link for convenience - https://www.youtube.com/@BarnettAssociatesTeam/shorts.

Feb 22, 2024 09:56 AM
Craig Daniels

Just like blogging topics, you can and should find new ideas in things that you frequently find yourself explaining to clients... turn the idea into a video! I updated your shorts link, thanks for letting me know I had mixed up that reference. Don't forget to post to youtube thursdays group whenever you have a post featuring something new. :)  Toby Barnett

I'm very sorry that I overlooked your channel on the post Ritu. I have been watching your channel already and it was simply an oversight to not have included you (That's fixed now. I knew there would be some I forgot to list) Thanks for checking in. I really like what you have been creating for you channel. Your most watched video (5 things for Sterling) shows the right formula to follow and you are getting results from that production. I have some other thoughts for you that I'll try and DM you with when I get a few moments. thanks for commenting Ritu Desai 703-625-4949
