If you're using video for local online clients, are you a seriously talented videographer? Do you put together good stuff? Would your videos fly if they were used as TV spots?
Probably not. This is the offline forum, so I probably shouldn't be stating the obvious: YouTube is espoused as the next coming of Christ, and all you need to do is put together a crappy slideshow to rank your clients at the top of Google. Plus, you'll make them super happy with a slideshow you put together using MovieMaker or some sweet (free) online program.
Right. Ever take a peek at After Effects Projects, Motion Graphics, C4D Templates | VideoHive ?
Not an affiliate link. If you haven't been, check it out. For a few bucks you can put together some seriously professional videos. Intros, whole videos, sounds, etc. I've used it for a while in a whole lot of ways, and for some reason felt the need to throw it up on here now. You can find logo reveals, intros, whole videos, etc. You can't be completely daft, as you'll need to have a copy of Adobe AfterEffects to edit much, and a basic video editing program to edit the rest, but the bones are all there.
You can put together some seriously fantastic looking videos for very little money.
No, you won't make 5 gajillion dollars a day.
Yes, you must not have an IQ of 12.
With a bit of thought, and a half hour or so of learning your way around a video editing program, you can put out some professional looking videos. Or..........
You can PUT UP the same CRAP THAT EveryOne ELSE on here DOES and calls Good Stuff!
Not everyone, of course, but I have a certain poster in mind. Care to give me $500 to tell you how to knock doors and sell advertising? Just send a PM!
