Sometimes, a simple online yearbook commercial does the trick

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

Yearbook staffs are doing all kinds of creative things with online yearbook videos on YouTube and Facebook. They’re creating take-offs of popular commercials from Sonic, Apple and several other ad campaigns.

Those are all great attention-grabbers, and it’s a very cool exercise for the yearbook staff to get a little creative and go crazy making a fun yearbook commercial. However, quick montage video ads that show off the photography of the yearbook are also effective as well.
