  • Your audience is online, watching video. Are they finding you there?
  • Video is also critical for search for 2 reasons. 1. Google is delivering video results into first page search results. It is more than 50 times easier, on average, to get into first page search results via video than via natural rankings. 2. YouTube is now the #2 search engine online! This means people are starting their search with YouTube. Are you there for the terms that are important to you?

    The school community, in order to make videos for recruitment, retention and fundraising. All those working on behalf of the schools are invited to participate:
  • Program Elements:
    Top -
  • 11. #1: Storytelling
    September 13, 2011 – 1:00 PM EDT – 1 hour
    An overview of impactful storytelling techniques. How to choose a story, develop a shot list and interview questions, and planning for successful production. This webinar will give a broad overview of the production process, from planning/scripting, to production and through how stories are assembled during an editing process.
  • 12. #2: Production Basics
    Production Basics – September 20, 2011 1:00 PM EDT – 1 hour
    By avoiding common mistakes in production, an amateur videographer can produce useful and even well-shot video. For example, sound is commonly overlooked and, while people will watch bad video with good sound, they will not watch good video with bad sound. This webinar will teach the basics of a good production, including capturing good sound, camera composition, basic interviewing techniques and how to use b-roll.
  • 13. #3: Post-Production
    September 27, 2011 1:00 PM EDT – 90 minutes
    Intro to the Editing. The hardest part of the video production process is editing. This webinar will introduce schools to video editing, using Adobe Premier Elements, an editing program that is available on both Mac and PC. The webinar will cover general principles of editing. This webinar is recommended for all schools, even ones using iMovie, Windows Movie Maker and other editing programs.
  • 14. #4: Distribution
    October 4, 2011 1:00 PM EDT – 1 hour
    Making videos is only the first step to harnessing the power of the medium. Getting these videos in front of the key audiences is critical to making the investment in video worthwhile. This webinar will teach participants how to maximize use of YouTube, Facebook and other video sharing platforms. The webinar will cover successful tagging strategies, best practices in distributing video to their existing network, and how to harness the user generated content and the videos of others toward their school goals.
