I am an African American female business owner. I know my business need videos but I can't find an expert to help me. How do I make videos for my business? Video Maker, Nevada
Dear Video Maker:
You are right today you do need videos for your business because most people are "visual" and would rather listen and see presentations, instead of just reading about them.
First of all get a video editing program that you can use. I use www.cyberlink.com, which is a very low-cost and easy program to use, however, there are many more programs out there. To learn how to use it I went on YouTube.com, just like I do when I try to learn how to do other things in regards to my business.
Also today many people use their Smartphones or IPhones for making videos and even editing but you can also buy a video camera on HSN.com or Amazon.com. Amazon has everything out there and they will also allow you to break down payments, just like HSN.com. If you are a Prime member, then you will receive 2 day shipping and other rewards from them.
The problem is as a business owner, you have to wear several hats (Owner, PR/Marketer, etc.) and trying to get a professional to help you with your videos might be extremely hard and expensive.
Sure you rather spend your time on what it is that you are good at -- however in the world of business today, that might not be possible so instead of waiting around to find the perfect professional to help you make your videos, you might need to do your own videos.
