VHS To DVD - 4 Tips For Making Great Vacation Videos

Here's a post on making better home videos from 8mm to DVD to everything in between. Read my four great pointers to make your exciting vacation into an exciting vacation home video.

1. Wherever you go for your vacation, try to get videos and photos that help you identify the location. Something that looks interesting and gives information is the goal. These can be road signs, billboards, picturesque landscapes, brochures, area maps, etc. You can edit these photos and video into the rest of the home video as "bookends" (on either side of the your video footage of your family and vacation activities.)

2. Be sure to get a little bit of footage of every family member. It is always easy to focus on the kids and totally ignore Mom and Dad. With modern digital editing, though, you can add photos of yourself and your spouse from the trip in case you did not get enough video footage. It is sometimes easier to get a few still photos than a whole video clip.

Benefits of a Website – III

More and more people and businesses use the Internet to find information, it is convenient and saves time. Having a website is becoming so mainstream that customers and the general public almost expect a company to have a website. If people want information on a product or service, they are now saying, “I think they have a website, I’ll check that out first.”

Below are just some of the benefits you can expect from a website:

1. Increases awareness of products/services
A website provides the opportunity to publish the who, what, where, when and why of your business in a powerful and effective manner.
How many potential customers might be swayed if they could learn a little more about you, your company, your products, etc., without having to phone or taking the time to meet with you in person? A website makes it easy for customers to learn more about your business at their own pace.

2. Expands market place
A website can expand your reach to a market that may have been difficult or expensive to reach through traditional advertising. Increasingly, people search the Web rather than the Yellow Pages when looking for a service or product. You’d be amazed how much shopping occurs on the World Wide Web overnight! With an e-commerce site you can even make sales when your offices are closed. Currently over 75% of the people in the US access the Internet, up from over 40% at the end of 1999.

1. Reaching Millions of Potential Customers Quickly and Inexpensively

Tens of millions of people worldwide have access to the Internet. A recent study found that 75 million people used the Internet, and 45 million used the WWW in the three months preceding the survey in USA & Canada.
Generally, the population on the Internet is well-educated and affluent. Most own a computer; others have access to one. Internet users, like most people, are interested in convenience. Many prefer the ease of finding services or shopping and ordering directly from their computer screens. “Net Access” advanced equipment and technology make everything faster and easier for their customers.

1. i) Selling Products and Services
Web sites are powerful because they join your advertisement to your order or inquiry form. This is also the greatest distinction between electronic and other advertising channels. Users can have direct communication with your company as they see your ad. With the click of a mouse, they will transmit their inquiry or order directly to you. This, the entire process will be faster and more cost effective.
1.ii) On-Line Publishing
On-Line publishing requires a fraction of the investment that conventional publishing requires… and it works. Dawn, one of Pakistan’s best known newspaper, gets thousands of hits per week.
