Introducing Joey

Yesterday we uploaded nine (9) short videos throughout the Fast Pitch! website, all designed to help you understand what makes us different than any other online business network in the world. In short, each 60 second video is straight-forward and personable. We accomplished this by keeping the theme simple: a white background and a local actor (Joey Panek) serving as your 'tour guide'.

Each video can be found in the right-hand corner of each major section of the website and provides you with a brief overview of each feature. These videos are particularly useful for anyone who is brand new to the network and perhaps doesn't completely understand what makes Fast Pitch! different.

The videos also allow us to free up some much needed space on each page by allowing us to remove some un-sightly (and wordy) instructions. The videos are definitely more engaging and personable... and by all accounts so far, proving to be more effective.

We produced the videos just last week here at our headquarters located at The Hub - a technology incubator which houses some of the most talented and creative minds in the region (which obviously includes Joey). All totaled, the videos took less than 3 hours to produce, due in large part to Joey's tremendous talent. Within minutes of learning that we needed him to do some filming, the guy literally transformed himself from a Ninja* to a Fast Pitch! Tour Guide in a matter of seconds. The transformation was impressive to watch to say the least.

The first series of videos we produced include:
  1. Fast Pitch! Overview (FP vs. Facebook vs. LinkedIn)
  2. Completing Your Profile
  3. Making Connections
  4. Marketing Feature Overview
  5. Posting & Distributing Press
  6. Email Marketing on Fast Pitch!
  7. Getting Ranked on Google
  8. Learning Social Media
  9. Advantages to Upgrading
So take a moment and familiarize yourself with the videos and Joey. Something tells me you'll be seeing more and more of him in the coming months.


*Over the past few months, Joey (and other employees here at The Hub) have been doing "Ninja Training" with a local personal trainer. I'm not completely familiar with their workouts and don't think Joey will become an actual Ninja per se... but, I could be wrong.
