A recent survey of top publishers on Facebook, found that their followers shared video content seven times more often than simple text. Yet many businesses don't currently use video as part of their social media activities. We asked some business owners 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.
YouShoot - Create your own video for Social Media
This one-day course, designed for people with little or no previous experience, 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 participants 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 participants to ensure that every student received individual attention.
