I Have Q’s That Need Answers Today

Today’s blog post is different than most. It is sort of a mini-survey that will help me create content for this blog in the future. As a regular reader of my blog, I would like you to answer the questions in the reply box below. It should take you no more than one minute to answer these questions, and if you take a moment to answer these wonderfully inquisitive and intrusive questions (not really), there’s a good chance I will feature one of your videos in a future blog post.

Without further ado, here we go:

1. Have you created videos that are online?

2. If yes, how many do you have?

3. Did you create these videos on your own, or have a video company do it for you?

4. If someone did it for you, why didn’t you do it on your own?

5. Once you created video, did you become more aware of your competitors videos and what they put up online?

6. What was the most difficult part about creating your videos?

7. Have you received calls from online viewers because of your specific videos? If so, which video(s) generated calls? (Put the link to the video here, so we can watch it.)

8. Is there a specific topic you would like to see a blog post about? If so, tell me about it.

Well, that wraps it up for today’s unusual blog post in the form of a mini-survey. I would love to hear your thoughts. Simply enter them below in the reply box. Thanks again,

Gerry, I've read your book and watched at least 100 of your videos, and follow your blog, so "I feel like I know you already!".

I wanted to introduce myself, I work for an attorney, David Aylor, in the Charleston, SC area. I do all his in house marketing, and most recently have focused on video marketing, using your approach.

We started exploring the strategy last July, started filming by September, and published the first video to YouTube Nov. 1. I am now publishing 2 videos per week and the response had been great.

I want to share with you how we have be utilizing the material on Facebook, to build a community of "friends" of the law firm. These are previous clients, referral sources, friends of the staff, other attorneys, new media (radio, TV, and print) as well as other prominent folks in the community.

I really was against the idea of Facebook marketing at first (because I think there's alot of hacks and snake oil salesmen in the "social media/SEO marketing" world). But I was very wrong, the content we are creating is being liked, shared, and commented on, and Facebook's strong community platform (and it's EdgeRank algorithm) is giving us a great way to keep our "inner circle" close to the office, and relevant in the minds of them and their friends.

This was the first video we posted to Facebook-
"Can My Facebook Profile Be Used As Evidence In Court?"
95 likes, 25 comments, 27 shares

The local NBC anchor actually saw it in his Facebook feed from a friend sharing it, and interviewed David Aylor for a 6 o'clock news story on Social Media and Privacy in the legal system. (you can see here if you'd like http://bit.ly/VyALj4)

I would love to show you more about how I'm strategizing these videos for YouTube use as well as Facebook now. I think there are definitely some areas of practice and law firms that it wouldn't work for, but I'm sure there are a bunch that would benefit from it.

Thanks for all you do, and I hope I get the pleasure of meeting you soon!
