Growth Tip:

One easy tip is Google reviews. Everybody is googling you before they make a decision on whether or not to buy or use your business. Get Google reviews because people are reading them before they contact you, even if its from a personal recommendation. We generally ask at the end of their case. If you’re the business owner and your employees are the point of contact, incentivize your employees to invite customers to get Google reviews for you.

Kent’s Tip:

A lot of people ask me what camera to buy. I say that if you aren’t spending at least $2000 you should go buy the newest iPhone or Android with the best available camera.

 

If you’re filming on smartphone, having an external smartphone mic is important, especially if the value of your content is primarily in the information being provided.

 

If you’re self editing I recommend iMovie for Mac users and Premiere Rush (Windows users).

 

Don’t be afraid to charge what its worth to others AND what it is worth to you.

 

Actionable Tip: Automate as much of your billing as possible. If you’re on Squarespace you can use Memberspace to set up subscription purchasing on your website. It even integrates with Stripe.
