  • What Hoffman took away from his time as a fundraiser was that there is a gap between the amazing work on the ground and what donors can see and feel. Closing that gap is the most important thing a fundraiser has to do. Video, better than any other strategy, helps to close that gap because it can deliver the emotional content needed to connect to people.
  • If you spend lots of time making a story, but it doesn’t meet your donors where they are, it won’t connect and you will find, like in this picture, that you spent a lot of effort and you can’t achieve your desired result.
  • Accompanied by his eleven best friends, Darius Weems, a fifteen-year-old living with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD), leaves home for the first time in his life. The rowdy crew sets a course for California where they hope to convince MTV to customize Darius's wheelchair on the hit show, Pimp My Ride. Watch this clip here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TcI8fYKH3Ik&feature=channel - In the end, good content will attract people. Tell your stories!

  • Mission Video
    Harness the World of Online Video for Your School
    Prepared for PEJE
    Presented by Michael Hoffman, CEO, See3
    Michael Hoffman: See3 Communications
  • Today’s Session
    The web and TV are merging, turning your website into a channel. Schools that can harness this new world of video will gain invaluable attention to bring in new students and donors. There is a paradigm shift underway--you now have to stop telling people what a wonderful school you have and starting showing them.
    But how can you do this with limited resources? What roles do YouTube and your website play? In this session, you will develop strategies for programming this new channel, study compelling and interesting content designed to deepen parent engagement and promote your school, and learn how to develop a culture of storytelling that directly benefits your bottom line.

  • WhyStorytelling is Important
    “Stories are the best way to
    convey information, ...the
    best way for people to
    remember things ... The
    best way to get to
    people's hearts and make
    them take action.”
    -- Roger Burks
  • Find Them Where They Are
  • People Pay Attention to Good Stories
  • Laws of Social Storytelling
    Be prepared to tell 3 types of stories:
    • The story of self (org)
    • The story of us (community)
    • The story of now (change the world)
    “A story communicates fear, hope, and anxiety, and because we
    can feel it, we get the moral not just as a concept, but as a
    teaching of our hearts. That’s the power of story.”
    - Marshall Ganz
  • Storytelling Tips
    Keep It Short
    Powerful videos are often under 2 minutes long. The effort you put into keeping it short will go a long way in helping you focus your message.
    Keep It Simple
    Try to focus on one main topic (i.e. an event, one person’s story, a lesson, a testimonial). It’s easier to get excited about a video that is focused.

  • Storytelling Tips
    Be Genuine
    • Viewers want to connect with the work that your organization is doing. Focus on content that is compelling rather than what’s “cool”.
    Keep It Fluid
    • Beginning-Middle-End: Catch the audience at the beginning and explain what is happening, build emotion in the middle, and come to some sort of resolution at the end.
  • Storytelling Tips
    Keep It Moving
    Audio: Video shows the story but don’t forget the importance of audio. Audio adds emotion
    Keep It Interesting
    Wide shot - establishes the scene
    Medium shot - gives more intimacy
    Close-up - for emotion and direct connection
    Extreme close-up - very intimate, emotional effect.
