Video for Non-Profits and Associations

Video solutions for common non-profit and association challenges.

Moving beyond the production of individual, big-budget video, Remote Directed Video (RDV) is the ideal solution for programmatically producing video for events, member onboarding, FAQs, training, outreach, and marketing content and more, with minimum impact on staff labor.

The following are four video solutions that can be a big help to associations and nonprofit organizations who want to move their programmatic content production to video.

Organizations can do more with less, with Remote Directed Video

Remote Directed Video (RDV) is the perfect application for many marketing, training, and outreach challenges that associations and nonprofit organizations face. RDV is safe, fast, and affordable, making it a great fit for organizations that are constantly asked to do more with less.

With events shifting between virtual, in-person, and now hybrid, there are some very interesting applications for remote video. Video support for learning sessions is perhaps the most obvious applications, but there are also some innovative video applications that support and protect revenue generation.

Add value for your exhibitors and sponsors by underwriting the creation of promotional videos for these important constituents. Central management of these programs ensure that all videos meet with your guidelines for content, and staff impact is minimal.  Remote video can help grow your event revenue.


“By working with Thoughtcast Media we were able to provide added value for our Strategic Partners. Our partners were very pleased with the videos, Thoughtcast Media was super easy to work with, and the whole process had little impact on staff resources.”

Dan Melesurgo, VP Strategic Partnerships, ASAE

Association/Nonprofit Event Video Example

ASAE used events videos to demonstrate alignment with their Strategic Partners, create excitement around their newly-minted virtual event, and add value in return for their sponsors’ investment dollars.

Partners were provided two videos – one for use prior to and after the meeting. All videos were shot remotely using Remote Directed Video production.

Compelling member testimonial videos are often the last thing that prospects view, and the last hurdle they must negotiate, before making the decision to join or donate, and here social proof is the name of the game.

Thoughtcast Media follows a proven methodology for creating member testimonials that sell. Our Remote Directed Video (RDV) solution is a professionally directed solution that is especially well suited to getting great performances out of members with little or no video experience.

Best of all, we provide all the services necessary to contact your members and prepare them for their video shoots, making the member testimonial process as easy as possible for our clients.

RDV Live Director

Once members have signed on the bottom line, it’s important to onboard them properly so that they can take advantages of everything your organization has to offer. Training and support videos circumvent often less-desirable written documentation for driving member adoption.

The RDV solution is very cost-effective and convenient for producing small, medium, or large collections of training and support videos. Because everything is remote, we can turn around on a dime to solve member onboarding and support challenges.


Policy changes, new initiatives, and all manner of announcements are best conveyed with the clarity and compassion only video can provide. Award programs, codes of conduct, and leadership elections and their resulting changes all can benefit from the speed and affordability provided by RDV.

Any question asked frequently deserves an easily found and consumed answer. There are some exciting new ways that video can address FAQs, with all the added ease and increased comprehension video can offer.

Remote video offers a safe, fast, and affordable way to promote membership, events, and non-dues revenue. Today’s consumers want a more immersive customer experience, and where written promotional materials often fall short, video excels.
