Get New Clients With Video: Even if you hate tech

Posted on

Wednesday, June 29 2022
2:00PM to 3:30PM

84% of people say they’ve been convinced to buy a product or service by watching a brand’s video.

In spite of this, too many small and local businesses are resisting making video for their online and social media marketing.

Why? Small business owners think they need an expensive camera, lights and microphone to make videos.

But nothing could be further from the truth. Small businesses can get started making client attracting video using a tool they already own – their smartphone. Even if they don’t want to dance. Even if they don’t sell physical products.

In this workshop you’ll learn:

• 9 places to include video on Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn (I’ll be you haven’t thought of at least two of them)
• How to make videos in less time
• What to say on camera – even if you sell a service
• 3 types of faceless videos for the camera shy
