A recent survey of the top brands on Facebook, found that users shared video content twelve times more often than photos and text combined. Yet many businesses don't currently use video as part of their social media activities. We asked some small and medium business owners to why - this is what they said:
- I’m not sure how to get started
- I’m worried about harming my brand with poor quality video
- I’m concerned about the cost
Based on that feedback, we created YouShoot - a unique way for businesses to create their own videos for social media and web, using their existing smartphones, tablets and cameras.
You shoot your video whenever and wherever suits you - we take your material and edit it to create a high-quality finished video, ready for you to add to your blog, Facebook page and Twitter feed
YouShoot - Video for Social Media
This two-part beginners course shows you how to plan and shoot your videos using your existing smartphone, tablet or video-capable camera.
You'll take part in practical exercises to help you identify your business objectives and target audience, before planning out the content of your video.
We'll give you easy-to-follow guidance on key areas including:
- setting up your camera
- selecting the right location
- capturing different kinds of shots
- using different kinds of light
- getting good sound
We'll also introduce you to some "secret weapons" - low-cost accessories that can make a huge difference to your videos.
We encourage all students to bring their own phones, tablets and cameras to the course to use during the practical exercises.
Courses are taught in small groups with a maximum of eight students to ensure that every student received individual attention.
After your first session, you will have the skills to start producing your first social media videos.
The second session takes place 4 weeks later, providing an opportunity to talk about what you've done and any challenges you experienced. We'll also give you some more advanced coaching on lighting, sound and editing, to help you to plan even more effective videos in the future.

The YouShoot Community is an exclusive online forum which provides an opportunity to discuss ideas, ask questions, celebrate successes and share your finished video projects.
We also use the YouShoot Community to answer your questions and provide online support and top-up refresher training.
