That Video VooDoo
Presenter: Judith Lee
Video is the “currency” that counts in social and digital media. Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg predicts that in a few short years, video will be the only content posted to Facebook, and one would assume, the rest of the social/digital world. This is because digital users prefer video to text; video content delivers engagement. Fortunately, there are a number of features and platforms that enable the non-videographer to easily create video to promote businesses, products and organizations. SCORE presenter, Judith Lee, provides a brief video how-to, and an overview of free or affordable tools for video creation.
