MEGAPRO Relaunches YouTube Channel by Partnering with All American DIY YouTube Influencer Paul Ricalde
Vancouver, B.C.: Megapro is pleased to announce the relaunch of its YouTube channel this month. They invited YouTube influencer (and DIY Expert) Paul Ricalde, of Paul’s Toolbox, to star in a series of videos. They hired local videographer Diana Berdichevsky, of Berdi Films, to help bring this vision to life. Paul’s Toolbox has over 113,000 subscribers and he has over 16 million views on channel, the perfect audience for Megapro’s products.
The partnership between Paul and Megapro started growing several years ago when they met at an industrial trade show as neighboring exhibitors. Though Megapro has traditionally been a B2B organization, they saw an excellent opportunity in bringing their patented screwdrivers to end users through compelling visual content.
“We were immediately impressed with Paul’s charisma and authenticity,” says Hermann Fruhm, CEO of Megapro, “Paul has been an advocate for Megapro since the day we met and he loves the product! He’s been using it on his channel for a while as part of his usual tool kit. It was a natural fit for us to partner up and see how we could work together.”
With all of the exciting changes in social media and in the digital realm, Megapro felt it was time to invest in some new, professional, and relevant visual content. They filmed everything in Metro Vancouver over three days, and were able to create 13 videos. They created videos featuring DIY projects to really connect with Paul Ricalde’s audience, made some product overviews for marketing materials, and some other interested behind-the-scenes content. These videos will be housed on the Megapro website as well as on Paul’s Toolbox and the Megapro YouTube channel. They will be rolled out between now and next summer and will feature some exciting contests and giveaways, so stay tuned.
This is the beginning of a wonderful partnership that will help make lives just a little bit easier with Megapro and Paul’s Toolbox. Check out the first video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0xwbx3ii440&t=2s
