#CapturingCommunities

It was almost a week ago when we put an ask out on our Facebook Page (@GandEStudios) for your favorite Georgia Destination or Attractions.

We’ve recently been given the opportunity to capture Douglasville, GA - where we’ve created a Promo Video, photographed the Taste of Douglasville & Ultimate Block Party and filmed the 12th Annual Penny McHenry Hydrangea Festival!

Capturing communities is one of our newer initiatives as we’ve experienced first hand just how much one community has to offer! We figured that if ONE out of the 159 Georgia Counties has used us to help market their Community, than other Communities may have a similar need.

Before we go any further and discuss what can be done with Event footage, be it images or video, we have to know if you’ve seen the Douglasville Promo Video. If not, use your next 60 seconds to explore Douglasville, GA in our short video below.

So… what’d you think?

Not sure about you, but we were and still are so in love with the final product!

We’ve heard from the Douglasville Convention and Visitors Bureau about the traction they’ve received from their new video and feel like the kind of exposure they’ve received should be shared among others!

Our ask for favorite Georgia Destinations and Attractions was to help other communities because video footage & marketing go together like PB&J!

Why use Video Marketing?

Video marketing helps deliver messages more effectively in a shorter amount of time while also striking an emotional chord through visual and auditory storytelling elements not present in text.

  • 75 Million people in the U.S. watch online videos everyday.

  • Viewers retain 95% of a message when they watch it in a video compared to 10% when reading it in text.

  • Social video generates 1200% more shares than text and images combined.

  • Videos on Facebook Pages increase end user engagement by 33%.

  • Merely mentioning the word ‘video’ in an email subject line, the click-through rate increased by 13%.

  • Embedded videos in websites can increase traffic by up to 55%.

  • Video can increase landing page conversions by 80% or more.

WOAH - those numbers speak for itself! These statistics aren’t a secret, video is a known and proven marketing strategy that is being used on several mediums. How do we know this? Because at some point, we’ve all been affected by AT LEAST ONE video!

We know your wheels are turning to try to think of that ONE video that really impacted you. Well, how about you be a part of the next powerful video?

You may be reading this as an employee, business owner, stay-at-home parent, entrepreneur or as a retiree - regardless of your position, you or someone you know can use this information to their advantage. Video marketing can be used to advertise a business online, to promote a new product, highlight an Event or so much more. So, let us create something amazing for you and then let us help guide you to ensure that you’re using the new video to it’s fullest potential! How’s that sound?
