New Member Benefit – Video!

Maroon Oak’s Video Blog is another awesome step in our initiative to grow Member reach and provide them more visibility with their audience. Members can share a short video about their work and tip(s).

 

Maroon Oak will share your video across the web and social media.

All you need to do this is to record a short video related to you and your work and email or text it to us.

Guidelines make it easy!

We have enclosed 4 key tips on creating impactful videos. 

Share Content your Audience loves

The most popular video content – how-to’s and tips, hands down! Share a tip (or many) about something from your area of expertise.

E.g. A quick primer on the benefits of yoga. Or top 5 reasons to have a beauty routine. Hidden hacks about Facebook pages. Why I volunteer.

Duration – Attention Spans are shrinking

We suggest keeping it to under 2 minutes – that’s plenty to share something meaningful AND not losing your audience. (Most of the most popular ads don’t exceed 30-40 seconds).

Styling – Make it interesting, fun, humorous, thought provoking

Breakdown your video into 3 main parts. A handy script or cheatsheet always helps (think fewer takes).

Head: Start with your name and company. (I am xyz, the owner/founder of or a PR head with…). Tell us what you’re going to share.

Body: You can show or tell your message. Use a demo, share a screen with voiceover or stay in frame yourself – it’s all up to you.

End: I’m (your full name) and a ‘thanks for watching’ message.

The Maroon Oak team will take care of adding captions, so your name and company name is clearly visible to viewers.
Note: These videos are meant for sharing tips on your subject matter expertise with your audience. Please do not make them primrily about self- promotion.
Layout – Always Horizontal!

You can record using your phone, but remember to turn it sideways before recording. (Else your video will have 2 ugly sidebars on both ends)
