FREE WORKSHOP in Seattle - How YOU Can Create Videos for Your Business
Written By: June M Bachman ~ 2/19/2020 9:00:00 AM

Recently, as Wendy and I have been out and about, we’ve been asked quite often how small businesses can make their own videos.  As you know, Wendy has been telling everyone that video is a required element for all websites.  Hiring a professional can be extremely expensive for small businesses … so until you’re ready to hire that pro – we suggest making your own short videos.

Create a video that adds value

Your video should help your viewer do something better.

  • Tutorials and demos
  • Provide useful information your audience can put right into practice
  • Show the personalities of your employees

Video Ideas

  • Tell your story.  A great way to get people to care about your brand is to tell them your story.  Your story can be about how the idea for your product or service was conceived and include the process of getting it to market.
  • Demonstrate how the product works.  Seems obvious … but it is often overlooked.  Sometimes we get so focused on marketing the products, we only show the image of the product.  Get specific and show how your customers benefit from using the product.

Adding a video to your landing page can help increase conversions from visitors to sales.  A landing page is where your other marketing efforts are directing your visitors to go.  A clear page where you guide your visitors to take the action you desire - such as fill out a signup form.

And, if you'd like to learn more ... join us for our free workshop!

Reviewing your business’s financial history will help you make more accurate financial projections. Financing and investor resources consider your firm’s financial history to assess prospects for future growth.

Show information from the past three years’ financial statements as well as the current year-to-date financial statements. Putting all of this financial information into one spreadsheet makes it easy to compare and analyze the financial history. Also enter industry average ratios for comparison.

Include the firm’s year-end balance sheets, operating statements and business tax returns for the past three years, along with the most current balance sheet and operating statement.

Debt Schedule

The Debt Schedule table gives in-depth information not usually included in the financial statements themselves. Include a debt schedule with the following columns for each note payable on your most recent balance sheet.

  • Who to Pay
  • Original Amount
  • Original Date
  • Present Balance
  • Interest Rate
  • Maturity Date
  • Monthly Payment
  • Security
  • Current/Past Due
