Video Idea Friendly Method by SaveYour.Town

Video Idea Friendly Method

Make your town more open to new ideas

  • 24 minute video to watch on your schedule

2020 has ripped at the fabric of our communities

  • We’re all tired, lonely, and deeply longing for meaningful connections.
  • We know that our actions play a role in what our neighborhood becomes next. 
  • We’re each trying to do something that matters in our own local communities. 

But we face two obstacles.

First, it’s exhausting trying to keep doing things the same Old Way we have been, when the world is changing so fast around us. 

It’s natural for us to turn to online community building instead. And that's where we run into the second obstacle: Deep online divisions are tearing us apart.

You don’t have to know all the answers. You just have to be open to new ideas.

Learn how to make your town more open to new ideas with this 24 minute video

SaveYour.Town's Becky McCray and Deb Brown share their real world experience.

We just want to be people who help each other.

To get there, we need a method to be a meaningful part of our local community without all the bureaucracy and without all the online drama. 

You'll get a 24 minute video you can watch on your own or share with others in your community.

Old methods can't keep up with the stunning pace of change today

  • Use the Idea Friendly Method to help you shape a better future for your community, even as we’re facing incredible changes in our society all around us 
  • Break out of the meetings and more meetings cycle 
  • Start cheaply crowdsourcing the future of your community

Will this video be recorded so I can watch later?

Yes, the video is recorded, and you'll be able to watch it immediately as soon as you complete your purchase. You are welcome to watch the video more than once, start and stop, or go back and watch again. You're not limited to watching from a single computer or with just one group.

What are your videos like? Will there be slides?

Not like the usual webinar! You get a short, straight to the point video you can watch anytime on demand. You see our faces, and we connect with you personally. There are no boring slides, and we focus on real-world examples, not theoreticals. 

What if I have questions?

You can ask questions two ways: in the comment box or via email. We always answer you personally. You can also share stories or examples you've seen. That helps everyone!

Will the video play on my computer? Or on my phone?

Either one! If you can watch a YouTube video, you can watch this video. That means you can use any device, any screen that can load a web page for you to login. Any PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone, Android phone or tablet, smart TV or TV with a streaming box or stick should work. 

How long is the video?

The video runs around 24 minutes. For a virtual watch party, schedule 30-45 minutes. You'll want that extra time to discuss what you watched and to network and talk with each other. 

Can I share the video with other people?

Yes! Once you’re registered, you can schedule more than one viewing so you reach as many people as possible. We encourage you to watch on your own or set up a virtual watch party. 

Who should I invite?

  • Your friends who love to do things with you
  • Visionaries like yourself
  • Positive thinkers and doers
  • Leaders and officials
  • Downtown associations, Main Streets, chambers
  • Economic development folks
  • Elected officials from your local municipalities, counties, or tribes
  • People who care about your town

What people say about SaveYour.Town videos

This video stimulated lots of note-taking and conversation between the business owners gathered at my house. Deb and Becky gave us some new ideas and several excellent examples of known models. I think some of us are thinking of pivoting our summer’s plans after participating in Wednesday’s event. Thanks for a well-thought out presentation!

What a TERRIFIC marketing Video. I had 20 businesses show up to watch and they all left with new ideas and an excitement to get back and start implementing! I’ve already had 5 businesses reach out in less than 2 hours after it ended, that are already putting your ideas into action.
Mandy Walsh, City of Lampasas, Texas
There are always great take-aways from the videos that can be put into place immediately. One of my favorites is changing your store's evening vibe (different music, lighting, etc.) because evening shoppers are not the same as day time shoppers.

Are you ready to stop?

  • No more waiting on a select group of people who are “in charge” in your town 
  • No more choosing just one best idea and forgetting all the others 
  • No more being stuck in an endless cycle of meetings, meetings, meetings that take years to accomplish anything
