Video Submissions

We have started cooking contests on our site and while the recipe submissions have been great, getting contestants to submit a video has not had a very good response. Does anyone have suggestions on how to get people interested in submitting their videos?

  • They probably are already interested.
    The problem is time.
    You need someone to hold the camera, the video files can be huge if longer than a minute or two..long time to upload...and then there's editing, which many people don't know how to do.

    It's not like just sitting down at your computer and recording a short rant like Youtube etc.

    So the only suggestion I would have is to offer them tools to help ease the issues mentioned above.
    Probably not what you wanted to hear...but that's how I see it.
    • Thank you so much for the feedback. We truly appreciate any and all suggestions. We will certainly be looking into making this happen.
