“Stay ahead of your rivals by having a crisp, short and professional looking video to enhance your appeal, sales and business”



video-marketingAfter a brief time away we are back with the latest, greatest and most useful tips and advice on turning your trivia night and services into the success they deserve to be. Hopefully the time away has given you the chance to catch up on what is turning into a rather exhaustive array of posts on here and hopefully by now you are also starting to put some of these ideas into practice and making your trivia night the best it can be. Stay tuned for more over the next week and a return to form….


Today though we are going to look at further ways to promote yourself. Yes you may have the fliers, posters and word of mouth on your site, you may have a good website, an attractive Facebook but little additions here and there can be the difference maker and indeed one difference maker I have certainly found is the use of videos to market yourself!  Having the right marketing materials, including videos, is what will help you increase your bottom line.


In this blog post we will look at the benefits of a video, how to make one and also where to put it!


Making a Video to Promote Yourself – Professional

The first thing to consider is can you do it? Making a shoddy video with poor sound and poor quality will have the opposite effect to that which you intend. You need to make an appealing, interesting and professional looking video. Start looking into software you can use, perhaps people you can hire or look at what rivals are doing. There are so many skilled video makers out there that it does take a lot to stand out, but what you need to be doing is not making THE best video out there, but a video that looks professional and modern. Don’t settle for second best and even if it costs $100 to get one made for you that investment might be worth it. If you are not willing to put in a little time, effort  then don’t bother as it will only serve to have an adverse affect and you will be left turning customers away rather than enticing them to buy!


Making a Video to Promote Yourself – Modern


Have you had that incredible game show moment that you wish all your potential booking clients could have seen?  It is a simple thing to get friends and family to recreate the fun and excitement from a previous show.  It’s not false advertising…. you are merely showcasing what prospective clients can expect at their events.

Capture players pressing their buzzers, answering questions and having fun.
Show the audience attentive and laughing.
Have a testimonial or 2 from past trivia clients.
Show giving prizes to the winners.
