Video Production: Find More Clients With MeetupS IN YOUR BACKYARD (updated for 2019)

Video Production: Find More Clients With MeetupS IN YOUR BACKYARD (updated for 2019)

That's right. More. Clients. In. Your. (Figurative) Backyard.

Unless you're a budding filmmaker in Casper, WY, you'll have a big city near-ish to you. And that big city is rife with people who need video production. And 2018 is yet another new year where even more businesses and brands will have to net attention with video.

Forget weddings, birthdays, and music videos - go for the businesses right in your backyard by pitching your services as a video producer. It'll put some grit in you as you level up as a filmmaker.

And after an experiment in December (of 2017), I found the best conversions were by meeting people in person. Call it networking. Call it a meetup. Call it a shindig - I don't care. Get out, make new friends, be a servant leader.
