What is a Video Code

Simon from Manchester asks…….

I’ve received a profile with a video code on it. What does it mean and how do I see the video? Can I do one of myself?

Jo says………

Thanks for asking that Simon. When a member records a video of themselves we put a unique code onto their profile (that’s the one you’re referring to) that enables you to go onto our website to watch that video. Here’s what you need to do.

Go to our website www.friends1st.co.uk and hover your cursor over the third tab labelled SERVICES. You’ll see a drop down menu come up. Scroll down to the line MEMBERS AREA and the you can see an option to VIEW MEMBER VIDEOS and click on that. The page that then loads will ask you to enter the unique video code. Do that, press submit, and the video of the member will play.

Really simple when you know how hey!

Video profiles are an excellent way for members to ‘come alive’ to others. A paper profile, even with a set of pictures, is all very well but it’s really one dimensional and flat. A video on the other hand really lets people see and hear how you speak, what your tone of voice is like, how you come across and all sorts of other things that a paper profile can’t get over.

So they’re a really good thing to have done. And remember no-one can find your video unless they have your unique code.

So if you’d like to do a video profile of yourself, so other members (who have your profile) can watch it, do give us a ring on 01789 549054 and we’ll get it organised for you.

I hope this helps but do give me a ring if I can assist you further!
