I created a video for a business near me using their images etc and sent it to the owner yesterday lunchtime. later that afternoon she replied saying no thanks, but then about an hour after that i got another email asking if i could ring her, followed by another 2 emails saying please ring me. I thought wow she must be desperate as i said in the original email if your not interested i will delete the video so assumed (you know what they say) she did not want me to delete it after all.
I emailed her back last night apologising for not ringing as i has not got her emails until late, but i would ring first thing Tuesday morning, she replied saying that's great,
Well i rang this morning
Boy was i wrong, she chewed me a new one as i had used her images without her permission, claiming copyright etc, after i managed to calm her down she was actually quite a nice lady, and there was me rubbing my hands together right before calling her - already counting the cash, lesson learnt..
Thankfully in the end it turned out ok, but it could of been a lot worse.
Moral - Ask permission first, or create a generic demo video in their niche for them to look at first to see if there is any interest.
