Recruiting volunteers, and good ones, is important for any organization that depends on good people to keep it moving. I’m pumped about this photo shoot and campaign I helped develop. The campaign has a few different goals, most of which is to say thanks to some key volunteers and highlight their volunteer role to others. The campaign also helps recruit people who get a quick understanding that they don’t have to be an expert in a particular area to help out. They just need to be available and willing. These photos really capture the culture of the church by highlighting the faces of the volunteers who keep it going. While the pics are nice, the story of each volunteer that’s shared in the posts really help convey the message. Enjoy the photos and to all the great volunteers of 4CornersChurch – You are amazing!
In-house design and creative teams are charged with making killer videos all the time, but where do we start? What story do we tell? What emotions do we evoke? Where do we shoot it? A great place to start is with a customer having a great experience with the product. Catch the reality of your product or service from the view point of the person using it. Here’s three easy steps to do that. 1. Back to life, back to reality. Feature a real user and get their honest feedback. 2. Show and tell. Show how it works. Don’t over-show how it works. You have a smart product and the buyers are smart. Treat them like the wiz kids they are. Tell them why it benefits them and the people they will use it with. Show how it works, tell how it benefits. 3. Script scenes – not language. Let your user share exactly what they love. Let people experience their passion. It will be felt.
While running a business unit for this cloud-based, collaborative and team-building application, we set out to capture how someone in our demographic was using the product. We had to cover the concept, the service, application and the mobile app but most importantly show how the tool helps the person using it connect with their audience. Hats off to the whole team and pastor featured in this video. Great job to everyone that worked on it.
