Getting “Gutsy” with Mayniax Branding. What I learned and what you should takeaway.
Two days ago I sat down with Dave Murray, the spirited and passionate co-founder of Mayniax Branding. This meeting had been preordained for awhile. Everywhere I went I was bombarded with “Oh! Have you met Dave yet?” “You should meet Dave!” “I know this guy Dave…” Some things in life are just synchronistic, and after forever and an email, I finally looked him up. And. Crazy crazy, but it turns out I DID know who he was because, da-tada-da, I had watched one of his videos. I didn’t connect the words “Dave Murray” when people would say it, with the energetic red accessory sporting person that I had seen online.…

Where can I find free royalty free music for my video projects? On Youtube of course! (VIDEO)
A video is a lot more dynamic with a soundtrack - but we can't use popular songs as we don't have the rights to them - still, we can find free music to use on Youtube!
5 things to Consider Adding to your Videos while Uploading
Okay, so you’ve done the hard work of taking and editing a video and are now going to post it. Do that, but also consider doing these five additional add-ons. Consider adding Closed Captions/Subtitles Not only do you broaden the audience of people who can watch your videos to those who are deaf and perhaps those that can only read English, but, statistics show there is more engagement with subtitled videos. Facebook reports that a captioned video increases view time by 12%. Not only that, but Facebook also reports that 85% of videos are viewed without sound. For a bit of extra effort, there is a surefire way to increase…
Tuesday Tip! Make sure you do this with your Video Projects.
This is stupid-simple, and it has gotten me out of trouble more than a dozen times. After editing and exporting your video, always, always, ALWAYS… watch it. I know these are usually tutorials, but I encountered this very issue with my video editing and projects and I thought it would be pertinent to share it with you. Happy Editing! Katie
Our assignment in my weekly Marketing club was to read the first chapter of Mike Dooley’s “Life on Earth”. For those of you who don’t know, Mike Dooley is the master behind TUT.com and the inspirational Universe notes that we can get daily. He is New-agey, but also uber positive, and when I read his reminders or in this case his book, I feel reassured. I just read a passage where he talks of our “amnesia” in this life where we have forgotten how great we are. And we only need to “wake-up”. “Prior to time and space, you had it all, but it was boring. Then you learned how to…
I want you to COMMIT
We’re over a week into 2017, how are we all doing on our New Year’s Resolutions? For me, I’ve meditated 7 out of the 8 days in 2017. I tell ya, that one day is going to haunt me as I round out 2017 with 364 days of meditation, but whatever. It’s not about beating ourselves up over our mistakes, it’s about resolving to do better, and doing so. Then taking pride in our victories. Really, I don’t care what your specific resolutions are for this year. What I really want out of you is COMMITMENT. Are you committed to what you do? If you are, I want to SEE…

NEWSFLASH! Your video doesn’t need to go viral to work
We refrain from posting our videos because we wonder, “Who would watch this?” “No one will share this.” “What if my video only gets 10 views?” All valid concerns… if misguided. You’re right! You probably will not get shares on every video, especially if you’re doing it yourself. AND, yes, some of those videos will have minimum views, BUT that’s okay. Because you know what? You don’t need THE WORLD to watch your video and you don’t need EVERY VIDEO to reach the world. Sometimes, all it takes is one. This video (above) had around 12 views (it still has less 200) when the RIGHT couple saw it. (below) In this…
