How to Make a Super Easy Video Business Card for Social Media

How to Make a Super Easy Video Business Card for Social Media - student project

Are you ready to create a powerful short video you can use online across a variety of social media platforms that will help boost your brand, spread your message, and have a wider reach and impact?

In this short mini course, I'll show you how I made my very first video business card for my social media pages. Learn what went well, what could be better, and get a rundown on the do's and don'ts for creating an effective 30 second video business card that you can start using ASAP. I'll also get into the benefits of creating short videos, particularly ones that are 30 seconds or less.

Finally, in the last lesson you will get a behind-the-scenes look at how I used a simple iMovie template to make a quick and dirty (but VERY effective) short promo video for one of my online courses. Here I define my ideal target student (someone not happy with their current website), identify their pain point (they don't know how to fix their site or where to start), and finally present my course as the ideal solution to their problem. This will help give you ideas for your own short videos as well as some guidance on how you might plan and structure them moving forward depending on your own specific goals and purposes.

  • This short course is for those who already have some basic video skills as well as for anyone who would like ideas and insights into planning smarter, more effective short videos that introduce yourself or your brand.
