Video Storytelling: How to Generate Publicity and Turn Your Clients Into Raving Fans [Yury Nabokov – Machias Savings Bank]
About one-third of online activity is now video. Telling stories with video increases engagement, triggers social sharing and gives people a reason to talk about you as well as the subject of your video online and offline.
This session will review best practices for video storytelling and creating compelling video content, plus offer information on the nuts and bolts of how to create videos for posting on social media and other digital platforms using your own device, with tips on affordable video equipment and editing programs, lighting and framing, and most effective social platforms.
Through case studies, you’ll discover:
  • Video production methods.
  • How to attract retail and business customers by sharing successful stories using video.
  • What tools and software to use if you have a shoestring budget.
  • Which social media channels to use for distributing video content
  • How to measure the ROI of the video storytelling initiative and why this step is critical.
