What's the top thing you can do this year to engage your constituents? Both online and off? Quick, what springs to mind? Well I'm here to tell you that it should be video.
If you are going to do one new thing in 2010 to help get the word out about your organization’s mission, it should be to create a video. Lights. Camera. Help. Now sure, as the creator and co-founder of my own nonprofit called Lights. Camera. Help., I may be a little biased!
Lights. Camera. Help. is the world's first nonprofit focused on helping other nonprofits do good through film. We do this through our education programs, volunteer match programs, screenings and our annual film festival. But what I am here today to do is share three tips to help you get your first project up and running.
1. Check out the Flip Video Spotlight from the folks over at Flip Video. This really cool program lets you buy cameras at a two-for-one price break. All you have to do is tell them, in under 500 words, why your nonprofit deserves to be in the program.
