And instantly loved the video therein. A combination a beautiful videography, music, and simplicity, it’s easy to catch yourself thinking, “Wow, wouldn’t mind playing a round there.”

I love this. I really do.
Real-time content absolutely has its place. But I think we sometimes forget that evergreen content like this even exists and can have a place in the social and online marketing calendar right next to the stuff that was produced this morning.
In fact, I bet if you went back into your YouTube channel or Vimeo account or Instagram feed or Twitter profile you’d fine a dozen such bits of content ready to fill your content calendar with nothing more than a click.
Thoughts? Feeback? I'd love to hear them. Just send me an email.
