How to use your smartphone to market your business through video

When and Where

Event Details


Video is a preferred format for most social media channels. Website visitors will watch a short video as an introduction to your business, or to find out how you will be able to help them. YouTube is the second largest search engine after Google. Fortunately, you don’t need lots of equipment to take advantage of video.

Most people have access to a video recording studio that fits right in their pocket. Today, smartphones are so sophisticated that they can record in high definition, with decent audio and even allow you to edit your film on the device itself.

When we know that video is a preferred content by platforms and audiences alike, it makes sense for all businesses, regardless of size, to use video in their marketing. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to make the most of the technology you have to hand to get better results from video.

Who should attend this online workshop? 

This workshop is for anyone considering using video to increase their own visibility online or increase the brand awareness of their company. This workshop is especially valuable to people new to video.

  • Why video is an important part of a marketing strategy

  • Filming using your phone

This is an interactive, action planning online workshop. You will leave this session with handouts and a practical action plan which can be implemented within your business. Where possible, we would like to encourage you to join this session with your video camera turned on and when instructed by the facilitator, you may un-mute your microphone to take full advantage of the interactive nature of the workshop. For the best user experience, we recommend joining the workshop using Chrome or Firefox as your web browser.
