Distributing A Single Title SIV Dilemma

Just last week, I received this email message from a fellow videographer. It’s a good question so with his permision, I am sharing his question and my answer with you.

Rick, I have produced a really unique video with a local biologist…been out for about 3 months but have not having too much luck selling it. Got great reviews and testimonial but not too many sales.

I know you are a busy man, but, any help would be appreciated.

Vince, I have a whole website dedicated to that very subject: http://howtosellyourvideos.com. In your case, having only one video on a niche topic, I would recommend that you 1.) determine who your target market is, and 2). try to find a video distributor that is already established in and serving that market. I’ll build websites for just one of my own niche products, but I’m fairly proficient at it and have the shopping cart software, merchant accounts, and web server space to do so. If you don’t have the web design skills or other necessary things, I wouldn’t really recommend going into the marketing field for this one product. You can search online for distributors, there are plenty of them. If it is a school oriented product, the price can be higher than for a retail product.

I hope that helps. Good luck.
Rick
