YouTube has over a billion users, almost one-third of all internet users. Nearly 60% of people watch videos to help them choose accommodations for their travel. Video is an essential asset for online marketing, especially in tourism, as being able to show a potential customer what they’ll experience when they visit you goes further than simply telling them.

This hands-on, creative workshop will show delegates how to use an iPad or iPhone to shoot, edit and upload great videos to YouTube, Facebook and Instagram, including voiceovers, background music, and titles. Note that videos can be used on your website and add huge value to written content, such as blog posts. Learn why as humans we respond much better to video and, people in video, along with practical tips on making quality video content using mobile devices.
