Could you use a 1200% boost in visibility for your business?
Could you use a 1200% boost in your business?
What if I told you that's the difference a video can make?
We have all heard that we should be doing more video, especially on social media, yet most of us struggle to make that happen, right?
So is video really THAT important?
Here’s the truth; the second largest search engine in the world is YouTube, coming in right after Google (and Google also favors video content in rankings.)
Video content is also 1200% more likely to be shared.
Could you use a 1200% boost in reach? What would that do for your business?
So why aren’t we using more video? Are you like me and you move it to the next day on your to do list EVERY SINGLE DAY?
It’s not just you that struggles to get in front of the camera and on video, there are three reasons that so many women just like you (and I) have trouble getting out of their own way, and taking advantage of the power of video.
So let’s accept the fact that video is critical to our business – now what?
We've got you.
