The Beginning?

I have been pondering this very question myself for the past 2 months before starting to write this first blog. It was in fact YouTube that started the whole pondering in the first place.

My company has a pretty good following on YouTube, but I wanted to kick this on and find a new way to expose our products and our website to more people. With this is mind I decided to start doing reviews of our products and offering a review service to companies we aren’t currently working with.

“Nothing new here I hear you say” and yes I would agree, there are plenty of people out their reviewing products and plenty of stores selling product, but I don’t see anyone doing both as one entity very well and so this is where we aim to be different.

We want to offer a transparent service so that people can see what they are purchasing online or on the high street before they make the decision to buy. Let’s be honest many products that are bought these days are not readily available on the high street, which means you are buying from a website which in many cases give you a picture of the item in a box and maybe another image of the item unboxed, if you are lucky, and a product description that in general can be very poor even on major websites such as Amazon or Ebay.

I have just begun the process of reviewing products in the last week and it took several weeks for me to be able to put myself in front of a camera as this is not what I have ever wanted or thought to do. Please take a look at the review I have done today and also edited myself which I have had to teach myself the art of film editing as well, this is only my third one
Otherland on YouTube any comments, views, likes would be greatly appreciated at this early stage.

I have spent countless hours learning to understand YouTube better, watching reviewers and vloggers, some very good and totally natural and others very poor but still doing relatively well. My wife and I particulary like Daily Bumps Daily Bumps on YouTube and have started watching their video blog from the beginning, it’s like watching a reality show on MTV without the ads or created storylines. Actually it was our 4 year old daughter that got us on to them as she has been watching them for weeks!

We have just started doing daily video logs ourselves over Easter, you can see how we are getting on https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0Lq625LewhE4elBlClQ91Q  it would be great to get some feedback on this as it is all very new for us.

I will start by posting every Sunday and will increase this to twice a week as I get used to writing more regularly.
