Hello ,

Video in Business Continues to Grow Despite the Risks

by Shelley Carney

The Risks of Video

The DJI Pocket 2 - Handheld 3-Axis Gimbal Stabilizer with 4K Camera tumbled to the pavement with a SMACK!

My eyes flew wide in shock.

We had just been called in from wandering around the VLA, 50 miles west of Socorro, New Mexico. We were filming for our New Mexico Day Trips YouTube channel. There was a lightning storm coming our way.

I gasped and my heart sank as I looked into Toby's eyes.

"I'm sorry."

"It's okay. These things happen. Believe me, I've dropped my fair share of camera equipment over the years."

I anxiously reached down to retrieve the camera and saw the deep scratches.

Then I noticed the head of the camera pulling apart.

There is always risk in creating videos, especially outdoors.

The happy ending is that the camera was under warranty, and DJI replaced it at no cost.

Even with all the risks, we love making videos.

Something for Everyone: The Product Ladder

Why do you need a product ladder? How can you attract leads and increase sales even in uncertain economic times?

A product ladder is a range of products varying in price and features. Product ladders make it easier for potential customers to get a sampling of your work or to jump in all the way. You can create a product ladder by breaking services into smaller chunks or offering products or services in bundles or packages.

How do you get started building a product ladder?

Join Jen and Shelley as they discuss how they are building their own product ladders and get their tips and tools to get it done quicker.

The Business of Creators Report

by Hubspot & The Tilt

Creators and Brands are Building a New Digital Economy Together

Creators are dominating online and growing highly engaged, niche audiences. It makes sense — people listen to people they trust.

Now, more and more brands understand the value of community-led growth. Our 2022 State of Inbound Marketing Trends Report found that 88% of brands have a dedicated budget for working with influencers and creators, and community is a top priority for marketing strategy in the year ahead.

Who are content creators? And how can brands organically tap into their audiences? Content creators are “social media influencers'' in the sense that they have an engaged audience, and they consistently create and share high-quality, original content for their audience. Content creators typically educate and inspire, prioritize partnerships, and can make a full-time living through their personal business.
