I’m so thrilled to be writing this blog post series for Social Media Camp 2013 and to share ways we can pump up the Video in your Social Media.
I’m excited by the chance to connect and share with you my passion for video and all that it brings to Social. Please make sure to comment! We want to hear what you are interested in, what questions and observations you’ll be able to share with us all.
Video is so important to Social Media success. It draws clicks and interest better than links to documents or text based webpages or even photos. Google owns YouTube and incorporates YouTube videos strongly into its search returns (SERPs). You benefit a lot by being on YouTube and we’ll show you how to get there!
Creating videos for Social Media can range from very simple to more complex. We’ll help you find the sweet spot for your skill set and equipment budget. Video production for Social doesn’t have to be hard, and with a bit of basic knowledge you’ll be able to create and post more video files to support your Social Media activities.
What’s the Best Equipment to Use?
So for instance; we’ll be looking at cameras ranging from simple FlipCams to more expensive camera gear, audio solutions and how to best use your microphones, lighting options and tricks, and editing. Which of these most interest you? Let us know in the Comments section below. We’ll also explain how to interview others, and yourself! – and how to create your own YouTube Channel, including uploading and embedding your video files into your own website to create your own Video Blog.
So are you excited yet? Have you got any specific goals in mind to pump up the video in your Social Media? Do you have any specific topics you’d like us to cover? We really need your questions and feedback to make this blog series the best possible. Every question is important. Don’t be shy, Share!
Other topics we’ll cover between now and May include the HootSuite social media administration dashboard and curation strategies using tools like Bundle Post and Sprout Social. Which of these topics interest you most? Please share, tweet, and bookmark this Blog. Lets talk!
With warm regards – Mark McLaughlin
