Video and YouTube
 
Now that Mark has posted what I think is the first Forno Bravo video on YouTube, and we have started producing and posting video's on FB.com, this sounds like a good time to ask everyone what they about video.

Are folks planning on posting more videos on YouTube? Should Forno Bravo set up a section over there so that our videos are all in the same category? Unlike photos, which we like hosting here, I think we would have to use YouTube for video. Does that seem like a good idea?

Do you think we should start posting the Forno Bravo produced video there as well? Would it show new people the cool things we have going?

Also, I am about to get my hands on a professional produced Italian pizza video that we have been allow to use. That's on its way next.

I think there is a lot of video in our future, and I wanted to open this up to see what you all think. Let us know.

James,

As a professional writer, I should never say this, but the more video the better in my opinion. It's quite difficult, and lengthy, to describe techniques verbally. Despite the learning curve on the tech, using video is better and much more direct. Actually seeing somebody do it is the way to go.

I'm not as current with YouTube as some other members will be, so I'll reserve judgment on that one.

I'll be posting more videos on YouTube. I think a category or section over there would be good. That was the first video I've ever posted on YouTube, I'm hardly the expert on that.

Where are the videos on your site, James?

Mark,

I think you are really going to like this. We are producing a series of wood-fired hearth bread videos (with Jim at Mary G's Artisan Bakery in Ontario) that are very helpful. Everything from Boule shaping to French Baguettes from your Forno Bravo oven. There are (10) videos now, and we are always making more. You can find them here.

There are also Hearth Bread instructions here:

This will be fun.

I agree with CanuckJim. The ability to see a demonstration of the techniques involved is exceptionally helpful.

I suspect a venue such as YouTube will allow the information to reach a larger number of individuals who might be interested in learning more about baking in brick ovens. There is also something to be said for having the information located on the same site along with other brick oven related topics. Somewhat similar to a good comprehensive reference book.

Is it a hassel to have the videos available in more than one location?

You can embed YouTube videos on your site, so you get the best of both worlds - having it on your site and on YouTube for broader promotion (plus YouTube picks up your bandwidth costs).

Not knowing anything of the ins and outs of YouTube, this sounds like the way to go.

I'll go YouTubing and see how I can make this work. I definitely agree with the idea that Video is so important to showing the right techniques, and that we are just scratching the surface. One small potential problem with YouTube is that our brick oven videos might display Google ads from the dreaded competition. I will look into that.

Thanks for the tip that you can embed YouTube on your own site. Time to see why Google paid $1.6B for these guys.

Good point about the ads and competitors. Having good video that really draws people to the Forno Bravo name might be worth that tradeoff, your call.

Does Forno Bravo run google ads? It's a pretty cost effective approach that I've used before to promote a website. Email me if you want any perspectives on placing google ads as an advertiser.
