I am continuing my experiment with video blogging including starting a social media video blog. I have learned quite a bit, already. I don’t have the time to sit in front of the camera, during the day, so I have produced the videos in the evening. This may change, if my film career takes off(!) (This is starting to feel like Captain Kirk’s personal log).

The filming works better if I rehearse. However, trying to read a script doesn’t work. In the past, I have used Mind Maps – which have proved to be helpful, so I’ll probably use them again.

My motto is: ’little and often beats big and infrequent.’  I hope to get at least two or three editions ’in the can’ each week, as we say in the movie business.

I have decided to give this project a name: ’The Marketing Compass show’. You are welcome to join the debate here: The Marketing Compass website.

Within this edition, I have spent some time getting to grips with Windows Live Movie Maker. I am not sure if I will have the time to continue using this, in the future. So here is edition 2. This time, I am talking about social media and sharing some feedback from my seminar audiences with you. Listen to my response to this viewpoint:  “Twitter is a waste of time, isn’t it!”


If you have any questions about starting a social media video blog, just ask!
