UPDATE – OURAY DVD & VIDEO


 

Letter from Faith Perry, OCRA Board


 

Dear OCRA Members,


 


We are looking for members who would like to have a featured video on their business to be included in the DVD. The price for the video will be $1,500 per business. For smaller retail businesses we would like to do group videos to split the cost.

Each featured video will be between 30 and 60 seconds long. The cost includes a 5 minute promo of Ouray which will be shot like a short film rather than a narrative like the old one, inclusion in the marketing DVD, web placement of each featured video on over 12 video hosting websites, web optimization for Google searches, and the right for you to use your video for any other purposes.

Sean will be contacting each interested member to customize your video to show what makes your business unique and special. All videos will be "film style" rather than advertorials.

Please contact me (970) 325- 4913if you have any further questions or to confirm that you want to be include in this project.

We look forward to an awesome, relevant, attention getting video and DVD of Ouray! Thank you for your participation!

Jeep Ticket Update

For businesses that are selling Jeep Tickets, Patricia Sullivan will be coming by on Fridays & Mondays to pick up and deliver tickets. If you have too many tickets or need more, please call (970) 318-8469.
