How to go From a One Man Band to a Video Production Army (Ep. 156)
by TODD HARTLEY, on Jun 9, 2018 8:25:00 AM
A one-man band video production company is all about the hustle and grind. When it comes to video, doing it all by yourself is hard and something usually suffers, whether it’s the quality of the video, the administration part of your business or your own personal time.
Most of us start out as a one-man band production, but there usually comes a point when growing your video production team becomes inevitable.
But growing your video production team isn’t as easy as it sounds. You’ve got to find the right talent, understand how much to charge and figure out what the right pace for growth is for your company.
Plus, you’ve got to consider the type of equipment to use, the proper dress attire, and whether you’ll have makeup artists on set or not.
The good news is that you don’t have to do everything at once. Growth is a process, you just need to understand which things to do first and how to scale at a pace that works for you.
In this episode, I speak with Jeff Harrison from Swing Point Media to provide our growth tips and marketing secrets.
