It’s much easier to show how to do things with a video. Has anyone ever helped you out with your JimdoPage? You can give back to the Jimdo community – by making a “how to” Jimdo video of your own. Show off your Jimdo skills to the world, help other users get their sites off the ground, and add to the community in one swoop. What's in it for me, you ask? Fame, naturally – and the eternal respect of your peers. And if that’s not enough, we’ve got loads of great prizes just waiting to be awarded to the best videos.
Everybody can take part in the Jimdo video contest. Here’s how:
1. Pick one of the nifty topic suggestions or choose your own
2. Make a video about it (here are some hints on making great videos)
3. Upload your video to YouTube
4. Add a description, and don't forget to tag your video
5. Read through the contest rules, fill out the entry form and send it off – that’s it!
Got it? All of it? Everything? Better safe than sorry: Download the checklist (PDF) and double-check that you’ve gotten everything squared away. Voilá! You’re ready to start making your video.
Ah, here’s where it gets tough: You can make a video about any topic relating to Jimdo or a specific Jimdo function. That’s right - anything. Here’s a few ideas to get your brain storming:
Something caught your fancy? Maybe you already have another idea? Either way – go for it, find your groove. Animation, stop motion, or a plain jane tutorial - the sky's the limit. If you're stuck for ideas, check out our topic page for suggestions. If you want to read up on various Jimdo functions, check out the Help page. Do keep one thing in mind, though – and this is important – your video title on YouTube has to be the same as what your video is about.
