Video is an effective way to attract attention.
Ideas for video
When you’re searching for a missing person, you want to create awareness. Videos are a great way to spread a message and rally community support. Someone you know can probably make a video, so ask around.
- YouTube and Vimeo are good websites for uploading and sharing videos
- Footage of the missing person interacting/speaking/moving will not only help with identification, it will make your appeal more powerful
- Video is also a helpful tool if you’re crowdfunding (e.g. GoFundMe, MyCause etc)
