On Thursday, I hosted a workshop called “Brand Your Business with YouTube.” The workshop was an introduction to the medium, leading up to the filming of clips for the attendees. I’ve never held a workshop like this before, so I wasn’t sure how well it would be received.
Incidentally, all post-workshop feedback has been fantastic. The attendees had a great time filming their clips, watching and critiquing them as a group, and networking with each other.
One attendee even sent a recommendation via LinkedIn. She said, ““WOW! Rachel really made the process of marketing with YouTube easy and fun. Her detailed knowledge and creativeness made the class easy to follow while her enthusiasm made it exciting and fun! I would highly recommend this class to anyone willing to branch out into social media marketing.”
After the event, I set up a private Facebook group for the attendees to share clips and information. Some of the participants gave me permission to share their very first YouTube clip on my channel and on this blog. Keep in mind that these clips are candid, because the viewer expects a level of vulnerability on an outlet such as YouTube.

My message to the entire group… way to get over your fear of being on camera and brand your business with YouTube!
Because of the positive feedback from the first workshop, I’ve decided to host another on September 20th from 10:30 am to 12:00 pm. Like the event this past week, I’m limiting registration to just 10 people. I’ve already had a few folks sign up, so if you have any interest, click here to learn more and register today!
