As the June 2011 pledge-programming period quickly approaches, we want to alert you to some promotional videos in COVE.
The national and local station versions of the PBS Video portal now features a series of videos that promote upcoming pledge programs. You can find these videos under “PBS Specials” in the program dropdown menu.
Here is a direct link to the page on the national portal:
(replace video.pbs.org with your station's COVE URL to view in your portal):
The page features previews and excerpts from the following shows: Opry Memories, Kickstart Your Health with Dr. Neal Barnard, 3 Steps to Incredible Health, Out in America, Younger Next Year: The New Science of Aging, Stop Back Pain with Vijay Vad, MD, and two programs from Great Performances - Jackie Evancho: Dream with Me in Concert and Eric Clapton Crossroads Guitar Festival 3.
Each video contains links for viewers to donate to local stations and check local listings.
We hope these videos will help draw interest in your station’s pledge efforts this June. Feel free to promote these videos on your website and video portal throughout the pledge period.
