Sometimes opportunities come to you and you don’t realize them. Case in point, I’ve been asked to shoot a wedding video for a friend, and you know they want me to do it for free which I agreed to. Only because I don't do wedding videos. I've alway wanted to but the opportunity hadn't presented itself - but now it has! One of the things I didn’t think about was, how can I use this video for marketing my website?
So what I plan to do is to go ahead and shoot the video and use it as a marketing opportunity, and hopefully get more clients excited to work with me. Since I’ve started my video services with on my website, they have always been in conjunction with video-only company I had partnered with. So now with a little more experience I can continue to offer video services and still maintain full control of the content by doing the work myself. So this coming February I have my first professional video shootand I’m going to do on it’s going to be awesome. This is an opportunity I didn’t think about when they asked me to do the job. I just wanted to do something and give back to friends and now I’m going to use it to make work better and expand the work I can offer clients. Right now I’m using the time before the wedding to plan shots and angles and to understand the client's wants and needs and work on some test videos to prepare myself for anything that comes my way. Stay tuned, I will breakdown my video gear and approach in the coming week!so .
