George B. Thomas, Hubspot and Inbound Trainer at IMPACT, joins the Social Pros Podcast to discuss how to make better, more intentional social videos.
Creating A Bigger Impact With Better Videos
There is a reason the term “faceless corporation” carries such negative connotations. People have an innate desire to connect with other people.
The fact that social media has become such a major part of marketing is a testament to the reality that your customers want to see you. Not just your branding and your products, you. The good news is that it’s never been easier to put yourself in front of your customers with professional, yet personal videos.
It may seem like creating well-made videos is an insurmountable challenge for your business, but George B. Thomas of IMPACT has a lot to say to the contrary. Not only can you learn to be great on camera, there are tons of simple solutions to help you turn your companies videos into top-notch content.
In This Episode
- Why being good on camera is a learned skill
- How to balance production value with live video
- How to develop a good presence on camera
- Why social content doesn’t always need to lead back to your business’ website
- Why captions are so important
