Most businesses save up money, go to a production company and blow their entire marketing budget on one 3 to 5minute video that only a handful of people are ever going to watch. You show your rooms and facilities and use a professional voice over artist to tell the viewer how AMAZING your place is.
Those days are over. People want to engage with you in a whole new way. Sure you still need the rooms and facilities covered, but there is more too it then that if you want people to notice you! They want the authentic YOU to tell them about your place and what else is available in the area. They want that extra mile, added value as they say. All you have to do is make a series of short engaging videos. Here is one Idea:
By making a listing style video you can cover ALL the things available in your area. What are the best restaurants, shops, activities and attractions? Make a connection with viewers as the expert of the area and give them incentive on why to stay with you.
Once you have an area video you have created yourself a shot-list of all the video opportunities to market yourself. Every thing you mentioned in the area video can be made into an activity video. You don't have to have a whole production team, just yourself and your mobile phone.
Video gives so much info to viewers. Like did you notice that we could walk to Morgans from where we were staying? We didn't have to tell you, but by showing it we let you know it was close and also a safe neighbourhood. These are the things people want to know.
We have constructed a very easy to follow online course to teach you how to capture and edit video using your smartphone. This entry level course is only 90min long but thoroughly takes you through easy to follow concepts that make video creation easier than ever.
Once you have completed the course we will continue to provide you with tips and tricks as well as video recipes. A recipe is a simple step by step list of shots to get. have a look at this AREA VIDEO RECIPE to understand what we mean.
Travelvids is focused on capturing experiences. Our course is designed for the traveller as well as a travel business, but we have chosen to focus the theme on Vacation. This means we may refer to making vacation videos quite often, but the same rules and lessons apply throughout the course and can apply to any subject matter.
This video will give you an idea of how it looks and feels. We are proud to present one of the first online courses filmed from beyond a classroom. Enjoy our scenic on site explanations.
I signed up for the Travelvids workshop on impulse and attended without really knowing what to expect.
It was one of those experiences that completely under-promises and over-delivers. I was particularly impressed at how tight you kept the presentation, rarely wandering off the thread and always on point. Everything you covered was useful and relevant. The use of videos to illustrate each step was genius and helped to drive each point home. I left feeling that I had learned a lot of really useful skills that I could use immediately.
The energy from the TravelVids guys is enough to enthuse anyone to grab the opportunity to start shooting your first video clips.
Surely an opportunity you don't want to miss-out.
This course is AWESOME. If you're looking for a content-rich video making course suitable for someone with zero experience - look no further. Honestly, this course is a masterclass in clear, concise, and engaging teaching. So well done! Thank you for this perfect introduction to making travel videos.
Thank you for making content that is easy to understand, entertaining, and very helpful. I look forward to using everything I learned.
This is a fun course that doesn't take long to watch, but the information is solid. If you're an experienced filmmaker or know your way around the professional level video editing software, this course is probably way to basic; but, if you're new to video creation or want to learn a fun, fairly simple way of making videos, this is a great course.
Not even finished the course, but already learnt so much!
teachers are great happy focused yet not forceful.

I'm you guys are disclosing phenomenal beginner intermediate tips !! from what I already saw in short few mins of coarse I learned I'm actually on the right track and feeling more and more confident i will be able to actually tell my story with my personal imprint . cant wait to see what else you guys have in-store for us I, if its this good already!!!! muy bien , gracias mis amigos
I did the Travelvids Video intro course and really enjoyed the experience.
Not having an iPhone worried me a bit and being of an older generation also concerned me but the two presenters did not presume any prior knowledge so started from scratch and gave us some really great tips - how to set up shot lists, how to shoot to limit editing and some good "go-to" sites to assist with editing and music.
I can highly recommend this course for a great intro to creating fun and informative travel videos with your phone.
Amazing course!! Cant wait to go out and make my vids! Thank you
