Places snapped up for video blogging course

By Anita Jaynes on 21 February, 2020

A new course aiming to put business people in the picture with video blogging has almost sold out.

There are just two places left for the March course, run by Swindon-based Eight Interactive, which creates video and digital content for businesses.

The Video Implementation Programme – or VIP for short – has been devised in response to the many video blogs (or vlogs) that Eight Interactive’s Managing Director, Pam Jones, believes would be better left on the cutting room floor.

“I have found video blogging an invaluable marketing tool in my business, but it has to be done well and there is a process involved,” said Pam. “I want to help people get their video blogging right, so it helps promote rather than harm their business.”

The VIP is a two-day course and will be held on March 3 and 4 at the DoubleTree Hilton, Swindon. It is open to a small group of business owners and Pam will cover the entire process involved in video blogging.

Delegates will learn how to plan and film their videos, and what equipment they need (such as a tripod to hold a smart phone). Pam will guide them through the filming process individually, and she will also cover basic video editing and advise on which software to use.

At the end of the course, attendees will have at least one video ready for posting with a firm plan for a dozen films and the knowhow to create them. Unlike quickly snatched videos for social media, these vlogs will be evergreen, and be created with search engine optimisation in mind.

The VIP, which is a follow on from Pam’s popular workshop on using video to promote a business, costs £397 + VAT. To book, visit: and for more information about Eight Interactive, visit or email Pam on Further courses are planned for June and October.
