A flip cam is a cheap and portable digital camcorder that is easy to use and easy to upload to your computer. You can order it online or from WalMart. What is great about the Flip cam is that you can take it to art and craft shows without lugging around an expensive or fragile camcorder. Why would you want to bring a camcorder to an art show? There are a number of reasons.
One is to get customer testimonials. Nothing sells your products and artwork online like a satisfied customer testimonial. As people are looking at your work or after they make a purchase, ask their permission to be recorded for a website and ask if they would be kind enough to give you a testimonial. believe it or not, most people love doing things like this, even if they are camera shy.
Another thing you would want to record is the festival itself. Sometimes it's hard to remember what a particular show was like when you do so many... they start to run together. This is a great way to review the crowds, other vendors and layout of the show next year when you are putting together your show applications or trying to explain how a show was to your other artist friends.
Video plays an important role online and off. Creating your own Youtube channel will provide your customers with a way to get to know you better and help you sell more art. You can use these videos as search engine tools, post them into your blog or place them onto your website. Remember that video is not really that hard to understand. The proper education and training will get you going effortlessly.
