We’ve blogged 99 times about fundraising for nonprofits, social media, major donors and nearly everything else associated with nonprofits. As we usually do, we’re stepping out there with something bold, a video blog post. We recommend video to our clients because it’s a powerful tool for taking your donors and prospects to you work. But video is tricky and challenging. We’ve had our little video camera for months. We’ve been videoing family, friends and the dogs. But just never have managed to post a video… until now.
So here’s the very first video blog post. Stay tuned, we have a “director’s cut” following this that we will share to talk about what we learned, what we think didn’t work and what you can do differently.
For our video we had a few ground rules:
2. One take.
3. No fancy-shmansy editing.
5. Quick to do and produce.
So, we’d love to hear what you think about video. Have you used it yet? Why not? How does it work for you? As always, we love to hear what you think.
