Neil Ben, Training-n-PromoNeil Ben, Training-n-Promo Films (https://neilben.com/)
Date: Thursday 19th June 2014

Talk Topic:  How to create an enticing video profile for your website to share on social media and attract new clients!

And the best part, after the session you will be able to view the unedited footage and if you are happy with your performance Neil can edit it into a profile video for you (see special offer below).

What’s the best way for people to understand what you do? Easy, you tell them.

How can you tell hundreds, if not thousands of people what you do without meeting them? Easy… You shoot a profile video?

But what should be in your profile video?
What should you say? How long should it be and
What about that all important call to action at the end?

At our next Events at your Fingertips meeting we are going to do something different!

We’re going to first find out what should be in our 1 minute pitch, be offered advice and support on creating the perfect pitch. Have the opportunity to tweak what we have already prepared and when we are all ready we will tell everyone about our companies while being filmed!

If you would like some pointers of what makes a great profile video so that you can prepare in advance, make sure to click on the link and hear all about Neil’s blog on “What makes a great profile video”

So join us on the 19th June to make new contacts, build on existing relationships, share your business and get your pitches filmed to use on all your social media and result in new clients.

As places are LIMITED for this event, don’t forget to book your ticket today! This event has taken place but future events will be advertised in the near future.
