One exciting recent development for me has been the realisation of how powerful video is as a sales medium for local businesses. I joined a small networking group in my area, and instantly became a celebrity! My knowledge of video creation and editing has been in great demand. These small local businesses are keen to add videos to their websites, facebook pages and even emails.
It has opened up a completely unexpected opportunity for me, something that I intend to pursue, and if any reader of this blog is a closet videographer, take my advice and let people know about your skills. There is money in them thar skills!
My first project was to create a sales video for a local kitchen worktop business. We spent about 4 hours recording an interview with him, and also his sales area and an installation. I intend to add the video to this blog once I have finished the edit and he has apporoved the final result.
I also thought that I would include his ad copy here, as I found it interesting, and thought it just might be of value to anyone out there working on a kitchen project.
