Sharing Best Practices


In the digital age, sharing is the essence of content visibility. As a creator on Fivestar, you have the power to reach athletes, teams, and a broader audience simply by sharing your work effectively. Here’s a guide to sharing your highlights and galleries to maximize buzz, traffic, and sales:

  1. Grabbing Your Gallery or Highlight Link:

    • From the Manage Content Table: Navigate to your Manage Content Table on Fivestar. Here, you’ll see a list of all your uploaded highlights and galleries.
    • Locate the ‘Link’ Option: There’s a ‘Link Icon’ button next to each highlight or gallery. Click on it. This will copy the direct link to your highlight or gallery.
  1. Why Share on Social Media:

    • Immediate Visibility: By posting your link on platforms like Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook, you’re placing your content in front of potentially thousands of eyes instantly.
    • Engage With Your Audience: Social media allows for two-way communication. Remember to tag the athletes, teams or schools that are featured in your content! You can get immediate feedback, answer questions, and engage with potential customers.
    • Brand Building: Regularly sharing your work establishes your brand and reputation in the sports videography world.
  1. Direct Messaging for Precision Targeting:

    • Reaching the Right People: DMing links directly to athletes, teams, or schools ensures that your content reaches the most interested parties.
    • Personal Touch: A direct message can be personalized, making the recipient feel special and more inclined to view and purchase.
    • Prompt Action: Given the direct nature of DMs, recipients are more likely to act immediately, either by viewing, buying, or even sharing your content further.
  1. Crafting the Perfect Message:

    • Be Genuine: “Hey [Name], I captured some fantastic moments of you at the [event/game]! Check out the highlights here: [Link]”
    • Offer Value: “Hello [Team Name], I’ve compiled a gallery of your best moments from this weekend’s tournament. Check it out to relive these memories! Or if you’re interested in using any of these highlights, they are available for sale and direct download: [Link]”
    • Prompt Sharing: “Loved capturing these moments, [School Name]. Feel free to share with the community: [Link]
  1. Collaborations and Partnerships:

    • Engage with Influencers: Partnering with local sports influencers or bloggers can give your content a broader audience. Share your links with them for potential features.
    • Engage with Teams and Schools: By building relationships with teams and educational institutions, you can become their go-to videographer. Share your links regularly to stay top-of-mind.
  1. Monitor and Engage:

    • Once you’ve shared your content, remember to monitor the responses, answer questions, and engage with comments. This active involvement can lead to increased sales and a loyal following.

Remember, in today’s digital landscape, creating content is just half the battle. How you share and promote it makes all the difference. With these best practices in hand, you’re poised to maximize the visibility and revenue of your Fivestar highlights!
