Easily promoting your business with online video - one day workshop


Are you trying to build engagement through social media?  Do you know that video is the most engaging material to post, but don’t know how to do it easily, properly and effectively?

A survey of Facebook users found that users shared video content twelve times more often than photos and text posts combined!  If you want to engage current followers and reach new ones, quality video content is a must.

That is why we have teamed up with experienced video production expert David Perry to bring you a practical, engaging one-day workshop to give you all you need to get started (except the camera!).

With Celia from Painless Ltd to provide the wider context, especially the particular requirements for regulated healthcare professions, David Perry will provide simple-to-follow practical advice on key aspects such as setting up your camera (whether a smartphone, tablet, DSLR or camcorder), picking the right location, using lighting effectively and recording a clear soundtrack.  David will also share the inside track on some “secret weapons” – low cost ways to massively improve quality.  Like all Painless courses, we’ll aim to have some fun, and you’ll be doing some of the work – so you will get to shoot a short video to test your new skills.

David has run this course many times before and when we ran YouShoot together in the autumn, this is what participants told us afterwards:

“Content was perfect”

“Course was great – really useful, relevant and helpful”

“Well presented.  Clearly you understand practitioners”

“Made it easy enough for me to have the confidence to try it”

“Very informative and enjoyable day”

At the end of the workshop, you will have an action plan to follow that will get you started with, or improve on your existing, online video content.  David and Celia will also be available to support you by email after the course as you let the cameras roll.

It wouldn’t be right to promote this without some video of our own – so here’s David talking about the course!
