Video Recording Business Business Overview:

If you love making home movies and are the go-to friend to record everyone’s special events, you should start your own video recording business. Imagine doing what you love and making a healthy living off of it. You can start small, recording events like birthday parties and dance recitals, and ramp up to larger events like weddings and business conventions. But before you go too far with this business idea, you’ll need to purchase a high quality digital video recorder, tripod and some digital video editing software. You may have gotten by in the past with your old recorder but in order to charge your clients top dollar, you really do need the best equipment. You can find brand new high quality cameras wholesale or on sites like eBay. Next you will need to consider your marketing plan. Start with friends and family – have them spread the word about your new business telling potential clients what a great job you did with their events. You should put together a short promotional video to give people an idea of your shooting and post-production style. And here’s a hint: the better your post-production skills, the better the video will turn out and the higher you can charge for your services. Anyone can shoot a wedding start to finish but if you edit it well, include appropriate transitions and music, it can be the difference between amateur and professional. After you have a few events under your belt, your reputation will spread among the markets you are targeting. Take out some ads in local wedding magazines and community periodicals. Before you know it, you’ll need to hire additional videographers to handle the workload and you will just need to manage and promote your successful business.
