HTC Offers to Produce Local Videos

The Washington County HomeTown Competitiveness Team will be opening up their internship program this summer to include video production to help market and support locally owned small businesses and non-profits serving Washington County

This summer, HTC wants to add to their video series by providing the opportunity for locally owned small business and non-profits serving Washington County to promote their services as well and tell their story via video.  “Research and trends show that consumers are looking to the web first to find out information about tourism, moving, relocating, programs, services and shopping to name a few.” said Beth Armstrong, a member of the HTC Team and the supervisor of the internship program. “For me personally in my role at the YMCA, I know we are missing an opportunity to connect with our members and the community we serve by not having a video online to tell our story.”

Locally owned small businesses and non-profits serving Washington County are invited to submit an application by June 3rd at 5pm to the YMCA if they would like to have a video produced to market their business or organization.  There is a cost for the video. However, it is at a significantly discounted rate thanks to the support of the Salem Urban Enterprise Zone and the Washington County Community Foundation, the primary sponsors of the program. A non-profit rate and for-profit rate are outlined in the application.  Videos can range in length from 30 seconds to 3 minutes.
