Clients are planning for holiday and the last thing on their head is executing a video production arrangement. Here are a few ideas on what you may do to boost revenues throughout the slow part of the year. Attend business media events so you can fulfill other business professionals in your region. Check with the local chamber of commerce, advertisement federation plus PRSA to see what’s available. Do your best to fulfill many individuals and hand out lots of business cards. You may follow up with those you meet a private letter, a copy of your own demo reel and a meeting request.
Offer to videotape high profile nonprofit fundraising events in exchange for sponsorship exposure. Receive a banner you could hang in the area and a few little signs to place on your tripod which have your logo, phone number and site url. Put a copy of your own demo and a business card at each seat in the room before the event. Collect all the cards and demos which didn’t get picked up so you may use them another time. Make sure that the edited video comprises an advertisement about you at the beginning\/end and make sure your logo\/phone number\/website is prominently displayed on the disc face.
Take it a step farther and post the video on your web site and ask the nonprofit to link to it through their newsletter and site. Call web site design companies and commercial printers in your own region plus invite them to lunch or coffee. The purpose of those meetings are to find great vendors which you could recommend to your customers as well as to introduce them to an excellent movie production company that they can recommend. Website designers get plenty of requests for video on their clients websites and printers often get requests for CD\/DVD duplication services. Getting to know these experts in your own area will expand your own network plus will result in new leads relatively soon.
