Green Thought Thursday: YouTube is Awesome!

By Posted in - Social Media + Influencer Engagement & Sustainability on April 5th, 2012

In lieu of our usual Green Thought Thursday, we’d like to continue sharing ways for you to get in the running to win the Best Buddy Contest. If you’ve been following our blog this week, then you’re already aware that our client Briar Chapel, the Triangle’s largest green community, is hosting the Best Buddy Contest with the idea to reward fans for their engagement across a variety of social media platforms like Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Foursquare and YouTube. So what’s in it for you? A Buddy Scooter!

We love YouTube for so many different reasons. First off, there are plenty of hilarious videos to go around. Secondly, it’s a great educational tool. And last but not least, it’s a great way to rack up tons of points during Briar Chapel’s Best Buddy Contest! The point break-down goes like this:

  • 5 pts: Subscribe to the Briar Chapel community on YouTube. Super quick and easy.
  • 25 pts: Upload an original video and use the words “Briar Chapel Best Buddy” in the title. Need some inspiration, see below. And encourage your friends to check it out! For every like or view, you’ll receive an additional point, and for each comment, you’ll get two!

We love what this fan did in her video about how to use the compost bins in the Briar Chapel community garden (also known as the Briar Patch). Check it out:

How will you get creative on YouTube?
