How has video helped (or NOT helped) you with sales and marketing during the pandemic?

And do you plan to keep anything you've been doing the same, as we go "back to normal" ish?

Be honest. Be as brief or as long as you'd like. :)

Hi Liz, 
Great subject! Video is BIGGER and BIGGER online! 

I've been doing video on and off for many years. Last year, I decided to get serious about it. I try my best (even though my 70h/w) to pull off at least 1 video per week. My editing isn't what I would like it to be (it's very basic) and I'm FAR from doing what I really want with video (interviews, better vlogs, different locations and WAY better editing), but it's a work in progress. 

RESULTS : 
About half my clients saw me on video first (YouTube mainly - I don't get much ROI from FB unless I put money on it.). So I think that's really good!

Hi Liz, I honestly don't have an answer to this question. As I am just starting out. And since I don't have all the necessary equipment, it is going to be a real challenge. This is basically just a test run. I will be doing 1 bio video, 1 intro video. And pick one topic and do a short video on that. I will be doing this raw with no practice.

Hi  Jimmy  You really don't need much equipment to start. Most of our clients start with their cellphone, the microphone that comes with the cellphone, and a source of light... usually just a window. That's it! As for the editing, there are some basic editing tools that are free, but if you want a more pro feel, hire someone on Fiverr ;)

Jasmine Beausoleil , all I have is a vlogging kit. I can't purchase a recent mic like what Zachary has because of financial limitations. I don't have much lighting because I live on the second floor. I have been using Fiverr services for 3 years. But I am disabled and only get paid once a month.

Vlogging kits are a fine start. Second-floor lighting is fine too, just standing (or sitting) by a window that doesn't allow direct sunlight in is GREAT lighting... The best actually in any photographer/videographer's opinion. As for the microphone, a cheap but excellent Lavalier Lapel wired microphone "Purple Panda" sells for 30$ on Amazon. ;)

Jasmine Beausoleil  , I am just a firm believer that if your going to do something that you either have little to no experience on make sure you do it right and love doing it.

@ Jasmine Beausoleil  , the only problem Is I would need someone as a spotter to make sure I am centered and aligned with video on my cellphone. Also hitting the record to start recording is on the phone.
