Opinions Wanted You tube

I have been exploring You Tubes vast number of presentations from framers, businesses, and suppliers. What an experience! It is amazing to see what is being shown, and how creative these are getting - for example...


Our industry is being de-mystified by these creative sites, which is not all bad. Bainbridge has some wonderful educational design sites, for example. Jay Goltz was featured in a Beveled Accent spot talking how to charge for a bevel accent (or any other item in framing). I've also view a few where I have wondered - what were you thinking!!!

But it brings up these questions (and more I'm sure)

-What are you doing to stay "fresh and relevant" in the new video era?
-Is this another way to set your business apart from another business?
-What would you show on your video?
-How much credibility do you feel these youtube videos add to a business, or an individual?
-Is having a pod cast of your business, specialities, services, etc. as much of a 2009+ necessary item as a good website?

Interesting.....food for thought

a quickie: article in today's Ottawa Citizen about a lady selling specialty cakes. Her biggest boost came from having pix of them on Youtube.

...that reminded me of one of those Schoolhouse Rock cartoons!

That did convey the information well, but I'm not sure I would take that same musical approach, unless i was framing some kind of Barney print.

Oh Chris! Those Schoolhouse Rock cartoons were my favourites. My grammar got a boost from Conjunction Junction. Incredibly creative.
Rick, I agree. You want to make sure the media fits the market. Once something is on You Tube, you can't exactly 'take it back' after you have launched it into cyberspace.

I would say that if you decided to post a video online that you need to make sure it is well done. Some of those viewed are very professional and well thought out with a message. While others seems liked they just turned the camera on and rambled for a little bit. Especially the lady who rattle off about this and that moulding sample while she dusts them off while talking to the camera. :icon45:

Don't visit as it eats up too much bandwidth and we lose service when we go over the limits.
