Ellie stopped by Freelance Austin in October to show us ow to use online video to grow our brand.

Web-based video is one of the fastest growing components of Internet content – YouTube is the #2 search engine in the world – and can be used to build a strong, vibrant community. She let us in on the top five mistakes people make with online video, how to avoid them, and also show you how producing video doesn’t have to cost a ton of money.

We walked away with: 

  • Ideas for our first three videos (three different ways to present our brand)
  • tools you can implement to help you create meaningful content including tips about DIY lighting, good sound, creating powerful titles for YouTube
  • homework to get you started creating videos that spread our own message
