Are you using video to promote your brand?
Last year, July 4, 2011 I photographed our local 4th of July parade and to date received over 1,000 hits. It's also a great time for local politicians to be seen, and at the end of my video, I post my name and occupation and telephone number.
Many times when talking to new clients, they mention some of my videos, not the parade, but my property promotions.
So it is helpful, folks don't be shy, you are your own worse critic, I'll bet you can be really good, give it a try. Don't forget to use a tripod, nobody like to watch a movie that shakes. Get ready for the forth, get your name out there.
