Social Media: Using Video

The truth is, video marketing (as in having professional videos done) can be very costly and from an economical stand point, it doesn’t make much sense.

However, you should keep in mind that today’s post is all about making some great videos the DIY free way (meaning free!).

Once again, just as in the previous post on Photo apps, there are many video apps, but I am only going to touch upon my two favourite DIY apps – Instagram and Hyperlapse (both the same company, but different purposes).

You should attend because it’s flat out awesome! For myself personally, it is the event I look forward to the most. I mean the other festivals such as SunFest, Home County, Foodfest, etc, are all good fun, but the atmosphere during Ribfest is quite special. Then again, I could just be biased due to my affection for ribs. Nonetheless, even if you don’t want to devour some of the best ribs around, or if you’re a vegan, and it obviously doesn’t fit your meal plan, there are still plenty of ways to enjoy the weekend in the park. You can sit back, relax, and have a beer or a glass of wine while enjoying a variety of musical performances. There is also the option of consuming non-rib foods that do a better job of matching your meal regime. Lastly, it’s just a great evening activity to do this weekend with family and friends whilst relishing downtown London.

Walk Score is a fairly recent software application that rates properties based on their Walkability . What is Walkability? According to Walk Score’s website, “Walkability” is ranked on transportation access, and how many daily errands can be completed by foot. The idea behind this is to promote walkable neighborhoods as it is one of the best solutions to create an environmentally friendly community,. Furthermore it promotes health through physical activity, and money saved by less dependence on cars saves money that would have been spent on vehicle expenses. These are great personal and global benefits.
