2019 Recap & Highlights (Video & Deck!)

  • Posted by: Brian M

s the year draws to an end, the tradition goes, it is time to reflect. I’ve completely revamped my website and moved domain during 2019 to this domain hack. It’s interesting to see how my own SEO goes during the next year, given it’s a top-level domain of India and I’m based in the UK!

The year has been adventurous, again having travelled to different parts of Europe for both business and leisure – mobile leisure!

At the beginning of the year, I had set a goal to start a podcast and by August I had released the first episode of Under the Awnings, a mobile leisure podcast to listen to for all the latest insights, news, trends, updates and more throughout the year.

This has allowed me to develop my videography editing skills, video marketing as well as photography you can view my full video archive here.

Highlights of 2019

Marella Explorer 2 Maiden Voyage
I travelled on the maiden voyage of the Marella Cruises Explorer 2. I thoroughly enjoy cruising as it’s an opportunity to see many different countries and cities, giving me an opportunity to go back and explore in more detail.

Dusseldorf Caravan Salon
Dusseldorf Caravan Salon kick starts the mobile leisure season ahead with exclusive previews of European and UK models to come. I attended as part of the Under the Awnings podcast and got some fantastic content both audio and visual.

Roller Team Dealer Launch
I attended the Roller Team Dealer Launch and created some fantastic visual and audio content. The event took place at the La Bagnaia Spa & Hotel. A fantastic venue for the Italian manufacturer launch. It has archived 10,000 views on YouTube and has proven to be the most popular piece of content so far and just as many listens via the podcast itself.

Auto-Trail Season Preview
Another dealer launch, Auto-Trail based in Grimsby hosted their dealer launch at the Healing Manor hotel. Their new standout leisure unit is the Adventure 65. I discuss the Adventure range in episode 2 of Under the Awnings as well as had the opportunity to photograph the new unit.

New Year’s Resolutions

As a new year kicks in my new years resolutions are to continue to create engaging content for both my own personal brand and Under the Awnings. It’s not much of a New Year’s Resolution as really, creating content is much more of a lifestyle choice, that every business should be pursuing. I’ll be looking to create and distribute at least one video a day whether it’s for me or one of my projects or a client. Video marketing really has to be at the top of the to-do-list for almost all digital marketers.

Push and build my photography portfolio my interest in photography are currently landscape and interior, I also want to look into portrait photography.

Build my web dev portfolio.
