3 Reasons Why Videographers Can Make More Money By Getting Their Own Domain

May 20, 2008
Many careers, as opposed to relying on the actual product or service, rely instead heavily on the character and skill of the individual. For example, a doctor with good bedside manners is likely to have more business than a short tempered one, even if he was slightly less qualified.

Or as another example, a psychologist with the right skill and techniques to get patients to open up is sure to be successful. Similarly, as a videographer or a cameraman, you will rely heavily on your skills with the camera and your personality to make a living.

This is especially so if you work alone and specialize in events like weddings, birthdays, corporate functions or other personal affairs. The more exposure you give to your business, the more personality you have and the better your reputation, then the more probable it is that your business (i.e. you!) will be a success.

One way for you to boost your reputation and give your business more clout may be much simpler than you think. Its not expensive (like advertising) or time consuming (like some marketing activities i.e. distributing flyers). In fact, all you need is a domain, with a blog set up on it, and you'll be all set to jump start your career!

1. Reach out to the world
One of the biggest benefits you'll gain with an online presence for your skills and services is that you'll literally be in contact with the entire world. Anyone and everyone will have access to you and what you can provide - and at any moment, you may have someone contact you with a project or job offer.

By describing yourself and your services in your 'About' page, coupled with blog posts that showcase your skills (e.g. a blog post on certain camera styles used shooting a wedding or a guide to shooting footage of an award presentation) will be all you need to 'sell yourself' to your visitors. Thus, if any of them has a need for your services, they can contact you.

2. Build your reputation
One way for you to build you reputation online is through your blog posts. The more you blog or write on the various aspects of being a cameraman, the more your visitors and potential clients will trust in your abilities.

However, others ways of boosting your credibility and promoting yourself may be through posting up videos you have shot and directed or listing down testimonials from satisfied clients. This way, anyone who still has qualms about hiring you can visit your website and be rest assured of your sound reputation!

3. Earn Money providing information
There are many ways to earn money online. One of the most basic ways is to sell information for money. Someone such as yourself, an expert with the camera, may have a lot of valuable information you have gained either through study or experience. This information can be sold in a few ways.

One way would be to create a newsletter that your blog visitors can sign up for at a monthly access fee. You can then send them regular e-mails expounding on the many aspects of camerawork, editing and so on. Another technique could be to compile all your knowledge into eBooks that you can sell to the visitors to your blog.

With just the 3 benefits listed above, you can already see how your career as a cameraman or videographer can be significantly improved with a domain and blog. There are plenty more benefits you'll only begin to appreciate once you've gotten started. So as the cliche goes, perhaps it's time for some 'Lights, Camera and Action' in your career!
