Video!  Yes I said Video.  Video is inexpensive, and very easy to use.  For under $100.00  you can buy a video camera that works well enough for the Internet.  You do not need HD or any of the fancy features.  You will need a good Microphone.  You can video yourself (by using a tripod) or have a partner run the camera.  You can video other people giving testimonials, or just talking about you or your business.  You could do training videos, demonstration videos, gallery videos, or anything else that would be appropriate for your business.  Video is the number 1 way to dominate your local market!  Once the video is completed it goes on your website, blog, YouTube Channel, Vimeo, Facebook, Google+, and anywhere else you can think of.  If you are consistent in producing videos and getting them onto the Internet you will find people know you before they come into your businesses.  It is more like selling to a good friend instead of a cold prospect! Blogging!  Yes I said Blogging.  Another inexpensive […]
