Businesses Wanted For Holiday Video Promotion

by Michelle Holt, Lost River Economic Development
Lost Rivers Economic Development is launching “12 Days of Shopping”, a new promotion for Butte & South Custer businesses to highlight holiday shopping opportunities.

Twelve businesses will have the opportunity to be interviewed and filmed for their own 3 – 5 minute promotional video. The videos will be posted on YouTube and then the links to these videos will be circulated via email, Facebook, local websites, etc.

The video segments will give potential shoppers an opportunity to meet business owners, see gift ideas, learn about special holiday offers and hear straight from the business owner why supporting local business is so important.

This effort is being modeled after a successful program in Maricopa, AZ. To view some of the Maricopa videos visit and search 12 Days of Shopping, Maricopa.

Any local business is eligible to apply. Worried that you don’t have a storefront? Are you a consultant for a direct sale product? Do you make hand crafted items? If you have a product or service that you would like to promote, then apply! The only requirement is that you have a convenient way for people to contact you to make purchases.

Applications will be mailed or hand delivered to local businesses and will also be available at the BIC in Arco, Arco & Mackay Post Offices or at the LRED offices in Arco & Mackay. If you do not receive an application and are interested in applying, please contact Michelle Holt at 208-527-5900 or email:

Deadline for application is 5:00 p.m. on Friday, October 21, 2011. The 12 businesses will be selected and notified the following week. Videos will be filmed the first two Fridays in November and the videos will be rolled out one every few days beginning the week of Thanksgiving through the first week of December.

  1. "Promoting business videos such as Business events, product launch, and business launch videos through online is cheaper and easier comparing to other promotions. People love to watch videos rather than a normal text on online.
