Corporate Video Book - Contributors Wanted
on Feb 16, 2019 at 11:23:12 am

Hi everyone! After 20 years in the business I decided to write a book to help producers trying to grow beyond solo-working and into running their own production companies. I’m 99% there, with publication in June/July - but I’m looking for some extra input to fill some of the gaps. Really hoping for community input, with attribution of course! What are your thoughts on any/all of these questions -

1. How do you find new business? - Paid advertising, business networking, or just pursuing cold-contacts (LinkedIn, social media etc?) I recently spoke with some film students who were finding video production work for influencers via Instagram and Twitch... I learn something new all the time!

2. Has the ‘gig economy’ (,, upwork, or fiverr etc) impacted the way you work? Do you find clients there? Positive or negative experience?

3. Do you pitch for work via aggregation sites (Movidiam, Genero) and have you had any successful commissions?

4. What advice would you give to someone new to the business? (Mine: Charge realistic money from the outset, making videos for the love of creativity is great - but that’s a hobby, not an income).

Thanks in advance for any contribution you might care to make, I’ll stay in touch with contributors and set them up with an ebook/PDF version of the finished book to say thanks.

- Tom
