Remember back in the day when shooting a video depended on an expensive camera and playback via your television, or dare I say it by cine film and projector? You would find that special occasions or holidays would influence people to ‘hit record’ and document their memories. It would be an event to get everyone together to watch home videos. Using video for business was also on the upper end of the scale.

In today’s world of technology, things are so very different! Each and every one of us has easy access to a video camera via our smart phones. This amazing ‘bit of kit’ is in the palm of our hands. They are also of a high quality, so there’s no more of the flickering spin of film reel or the constant need to manual focus every few seconds, these inbuilt pieces of techno genius do it all for us.

Clever people in the know use this technology to their advantage. With on-line platforms such as YouTube, uploading videos is now to today’s society of a second nature, and what’s more business owners are jumping on the bandwagon with video marketing.

Sharing your latest promotion, news (vlog) or training is a fantastic way to get your product out there and communicate to a wider audience. So many of us blog for business and pleasure, so why not take it to the next level?

If you are not doing this already, what’s stopping you? Are you…

  • Stuck for ideas?
  • Worried about how to edit your video production?
  • Unsure about how to upload your content to your YouTube account or website?
  • Struggling with SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) and can’t quite get to grips with how to make your video go further on the web?

These are all things that a Virtual Assistant can help you with.

If you are already the star of your own video and could use a little assistance, or if this is something totally new that you would like to explore further then it would be great to hear from you. All you need to do is head on over to my contact page.

It can be daunting to put yourself in front of the camera, but expose yourself to 5 minutes a day until you feel comfortable and you’ll soon see how easy it is to produce a short snippet that could steer your business in the direction of even more success.
