SPECIAL GUEST THIS WEEK:
Shawn is a Managing Editor here at BuzzFarmers, and he’s always cracking us up, so it’s no wonder that by the end of his Follow Friday picks, we’re just about busting at the seams. You can follow Shawn on Twitter at @ShawnBadgley.
Wow, that week went by fast, folks! Hope all’s well with you, and that you’re ready for another #FollowFridayVideo!
In a galaxy far, far away (a long, long time ago), I co-ran a video production shop, where I produced more than 40 episodes of the #FollowFridayVideo. We had a fantastic group of people co-host the show with me, including my future business partner and wife Amanda MacArthur – our CEO here at BuzzFarmers
If you’re not familiar with the #FollowFridayVideo, it’s basically a video series that features interesting people and companies we find on Twitter, Instagram, and even Reddit.
If you’d like to come into BuzzFarmers and be a guest on the Follow Friday Video, give me a shout on Twitter at @packhughes. I’m excited to bring this video series back for BuzzFarmers and our fantastic clients, colleagues, and other friends!
Video blogs aren’t just for people who can’t spell, they’re for businesses who want to get up close and personal.
If you have favorite YouTube channels, then you know how easy it is to become attached to a person and their story. For example, ShayCarl is a popular YouTube star who people love because he documents the daily happenings of his family. For those who have been watching him for a while, they also love him because he lost about 100lbs right in front of their eyes. His fans feel like they know him.
So, you have a video blog coming up, eh? Been there! You probably need one for yourself, your actors, or you voiceover talent, right? Got it.
Here are five tips to help you write your next video blog script.
Marketing Genius is a series created by BuzzFarmers to give virtual high fives to anyone who develops a unique (and brilliant) marketing idea worth talking about.
When Heineken took a step back from their holiday marketing and considered that it’d be really easy to tell people to “Drink Heineken” but harder to convince them to actually do it, they must have stopped and paused a bit longer than other beer companies.
Touching on the guilt that most people have around the holiday season every time they buy something for themselves, Heineken partnered with Krups to create BeerTender alongside a Facebook application (BeerFriender) that encourages you to “gift” a BeerTender to a random Facebook stranger.
