Meetup at Michaels: 3 Simple Ways To Create A Video

Hey everyone,

We'll be back in King of Prussia's at Michael's Deli for our next meetup.   Typically, we start at 6PM, have a speaker at 6:30 for 20 minutes or so - and then roll into Q&A and networking.

Our topic is Three Simple Ways to Create a Video and will be led by long-time group member Charlie Seymour (bio below).  Charlie will be looking for three volunteer companies/business-people to build a 60 second video on the spot.    Come prepared and you might be chosen!

Always a fun time.  Please RSVP so we have a head count.   The event is free - and you are encouraged to order dinner or a sandwich from Michael's delicious deli menu.  They also have a selection of several hundred beers you can purchase.

- Skip and the team at Philly Marketing Labs

Charlie Seymour's bio follows:

Little did he know at age 6, while sitting on the stage licking a lollipop in his first main stage production, that he’d use these skills in business to help you profit through online marketing.

Who is Charlie Seymour Jr? First, he’s a husband, dad, and granddad. He’s a guy who knows in his heart how powerful video is (he’s often called the Video-Crazed MBA Marketer). Not long after losing his father, he started a website, LessonsFromMyGrandson.com, so that his grandson would never grow up not knowing who he was. When people run from a burning apartment or flooded home, they grab their photo albums to keep their memories alive, and that’s probably because their videos are now protected online.

Charlie is one of FIVE generations in his family to direct at the same local theater and his passion outside of helping clients succeed has been directing rip your heart out big musicals like Sweeney Todd, Evita, Cabaret, West Side Story, A Chorus Line, Hunchback of Notre Dame (which he wrote), and more.

He’s also an Award-Winning Video Producer and Still Photographer; Theater Director, Producer, Actor, Coach; Award-Winning Salesman; #1 Best-Selling Author; Long-time Glazer-Kennedy Student and Marketer; Speaker, Storyteller, Featured Guest in Webinars and Meetups; and, oh yes: he has an MBA from Wharton.

But let's say he brings more than creativity and his shiny-headed good looks to the table. He generated $247,368,657.97 in personal sales and more than $1 billion through his marketing leadership skills. Be sure to ask him about this. And ask him about his #1 best-selling Amazon.com book.

Charlie is the father of two beautiful, talented, and grown daughters (Stacie and Liz), a son-in-law (Chris), and 2 grandchildren who enrich his life in everything they do. He lives outside of Philadelphia with his wife, Pam, a cat, a dog, 7 computers, and 8 cameras!

    Here's a follow up video I thought you should see - it's shows how to build something from almost nothing. My assignment - build some anticipation for an upcoming major event just over the river into NJ. There were NO available photos of the hall (which is BEAUTIFUL) and no video from past events by this client. So I created the theme: IMAGINE. Imagine what things will LOOK like (since I had no video) and BE like (since the event hadn't taken place yet and I wasn't sure of the organizers track record). Since creating this, TESLA has stepped up and is VERY interested in building this into a huge event. The major charity for the event, BeatCancer.org, seems thrilled. So... see this video and see how I basically took nothing (but 30 minutes of walking through the hall to grab some of my own video - the rooms weren't even set up!) and made it into a video that seems to be getting some attention. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yCOywFlSV0g

    I really need to follow up about the presentation I made to show the POWER of video marketing. As you know, I posted to my website the video of my presentation and then I used Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and several other video-sharing sites to help get the word out. A man from South Africa, who saw the video, connected with me and then had his American associate from outside of DC conference call me this AM for an hour. They liked the no-nonsense, here's-how-to-create-your-videos style, and have hired me to be there marketing consultant and video marketing producer. And to think it all came from a presentation at this Meetup. Seriously: video marketing can have that kind of effect!

      Congratulations Charlie! That is surely a testament the power of this approach. Your panache and energy do provide a creative edge though!

      Oops.... I really do know the difference among there, they're, and their. Dang my racing to post things.

    Thanks again to Skip, Bechara, and everyone who attended (and participated in) my presentation. Here is the video of the entire presentation - Enjoy! http://CharlieTheMarketer.com/3-simple-ways-create-video-charlie-seymour-jr/

    Great job Charlie! Thanks for sharing those simple and effective techniques for successful video marketing.

    • Charlie Seymour J.

      Thanks for all your support, Adam. Loved sharing these ideas.

    Charlie gave us some great tips on creating video. You can tell this is something he can probably do in his sleep. I learned quite a bit. Thanks, Charlie!

    • Charlie Seymour J.

      Thanks, Coreen. I sure do enjoy creating videos and then getting them out through the Internet!

      March 14, 2014

  • Charlie Seymour J.

    I can always tell if a Meetup went well when I listen the the level of the "buzz" after it. Thanks to everyone who came out, thanks to those who participated with me, and thanks for all the great questions after it!

  • Skip S.

    Great job by Charlie Seymour on how to create video fast and cheap. But more than that, he showed us how to create scale for events and interlace marketing calls to action throughout.

    • Charlie Seymour J.

      Thanks for the opportunity to present, Skip. Best to you, Bechara, and all the members of this really good Meetup group!

      March 13, 2014

  • Sharon P.

    So good, I felt like I should've paid for it. Thanks, Charlie!

    I look forward to hopefully coming to this meetup tonight.

    March 12, 2014

  • Charlie Seymour J.

    Just suppose: you have someone willing to create a short video about you and then publish it throughout the Internet with links pointing back to your website - what do you want said about you?

    Think about it BEFORE attending on Wed night at 6 PM - you may just get your chance to have a short video recorded about you DURING our Meetup!

    Come ready to participate, learn, and have a great time with Video and Video Marketing.

      I'm thinking more like 30-sec video (so I can get everything in the time we have at the Meetup). So... if I turned to you with the camera rolling and asked, "so, Janet: what do you want people to know about you and your business..." how would you answer it? Also... if you did your 30-second "elevator speech," what would you say? Does that help?

  • Mimi M.

    Sounds fantastic! Definitely plan on being there tommorrow night!

    Hi Neal - sounds like you have a budding actress on your hands! Enjoy the plays and we'll see you next time.

  • Neal W.

    Sorry, have to cancel. My daughter's in TWO different plays this week (in addition to all her other activities, and mine). Just too many commitments. Hopefully next time.

    March 10, 2014

  • Bryn B.

    Hopefully I will be able to attend the next meeting! Have a great time!

    March 7, 2014

  • Jim S.

    I'm anxious to participate and meet everyone. I'm impressed as well by the positive energy flowing from the group, very refreshing!

    I guess by now we're all glad that Skip and Bechara decided to postpone this Meetup. I hope the snow wasn't too much for you!

    Two things I want to point out:

    1) Because we've been delayed by Mother Nature, I will present on March 12 FIVE simple ways to create a video - the bonus is a way of thanking you for coming two months later.

    2) One event I would have announced last night (and I'll still show you the videos that demonstrate HOW I was asked to speak in New Orleans when no one knew me a month ago!) is the Dad 2.0 Summit. Bloggers who spend their time talking about and helping families. You can see more about it here: http://bit.ly/ThanksDove <== Dove Men+Care is a major sponsor of the event. Be safe in the cold and around the snow. See you in March!

    I'd like to try and make this meetup but may not be able to due to the impending weather conditions.

  • Adam

    Hi everyone. Looking forward to meeting like-minded people and learning new skills

    December 11, 2013

  • Sharon P.

    With an incredible bio like that, I'd be crazy not to attend! Hope for no snow.
