No one disputes the power of YouTube, mobile devices and videos, but that doesn’t mean you’re confident about the way you use these tools to promote your mission. This class, taught by a nonprofit video expert, will show you practical strategies to get started reaching this vast audience with visually compelling messages about your organization. While the idea of video production can be intimidating, you will see how you can apply proven approaches to creating engaging videos that actively tell your nonprofit’s story, while recognizing the limits of the nonprofit budget. Rather than a hands-on video production tutorial, this class focuses on tools and techniques that you can explore outside the classroom. With minimal resources, you can increase your fundraising, awareness levels, event attendance and more. This 3-hour workshop, includes lots of video viewing examples to solidify your thinking.
