Jason miller asked:
Do you story board your video ideas or use a daily to do list to keep you on point, or create off the cuff and go with the flow? I have always read you should learn from people who are more successful than you…
Rarely do I scratch things out ahead of time, but I could probably benefit from doing that for certain types of videos. It’s usually just easier (and more fun) for me to go with wherever my mouth takes me.
When it comes to daily collaboration with my team, though, we do tend to be much more organized. We have a Google Document which lays out the day’s social shares and articles. All three of us can easily add/remove things as items come across our radar or are finished already. We’re able to quickly see exactly what time a particular post will be shared and always know who is doing what – and when.
We’ve also begun using Trello to track sponsor deliverables and ideas for new videos and posts. I don’t sketch out the videos ahead of time, like I said… this is simply for topic ideas we come across or think up.
Even if you’re like me and do better creating off the cuff on your own, it’s crucial to have something in place to keep things organized when you’re working with a team. It’s taken a while to make everything gel, but it’s paid off in a big way. We work together better than ever – and the three of us have now worked together for many years. I couldn’t do what I do without them – and without YOU.
