    Can I get FREE Leads from Video Marketing?

    The day's are gone when the home movie camera looked like the now HD Cinema cameras shooting 4k digital footage. Everyone has some form of camera and now just about every business can use Video to help promote their products and services. In my opinion they should be too.

    Here are a few key elements you must have when shooting video for your business.

    1. Focus/Intent of the video must be laid out before you ever turn on the camera.

    2. Research other videos in your market and find out what you like or don't like about them. Ask your self what questions are being unanswered, what are people looking for?

    3. You don't need a 10 thousand dollar production team to beat your competition, even if your competition got one.

    Shooting the Video:

    1. Use a tripod, absolutely the best thing you can do if your shooting a stationary object or talking to the camera.
    2. Your Audio must be clear and not be masked by distracting background noise.
    3. Shoot like the eye sees, simple three shot sequences help Long, Medium, Close-up.
    4. Get to the point quickly but don't leave out valuable information.

    Have fun with video, get help from a friend, and of course mimic good videos you like.
