My name is Rick Smith, and I’ve been producing videos for sale for almost 30 years. The special interest videos I produce often sell for 10 years or longer. My all-time record is a simple program I produced about pruning shrubs way back in 1984 that is still selling today, at $75 per copy. I don’t own the video any more, but I sure wish I did! That simple little video has easily earned several hundred thousand dollars over its life, at a cost to produce of less than $2,000.
Can you see why I’m excited about creating a video once and then selling it over and over for 10 years or longer? What is even more tantalizing is that these videos can be simple productions, often as simple as taping a seminar or live presentation. You don’t have to be Steven Spielberg to make these. That pruning video I just mentioned is quite simple by today’s standards (we shot it on obsolete 3/4″ U-matic tape), but the point I want you to take away is that people are usually buying SIVs for the information they contain, not how fancy the production is.
The Special Interest Video (SIV) market is expected to grow to over $50 billion dollars in 2010 and the coming revolution of selling videos online will make this explode beyond your wildest dreams. If you are a videographer or an entrepreneur looking for new avenues of business, you are in the right place at the right time, and we’re here to help you get started.
I’m Kim and I left my “safe” university position to join Rick in his video business in 2000, producing my first video on – drum roll please – The Properties of Soil. Yep, that’s right, it was about soil. And that little video is still selling strong at $120 to $150 EACH to schools; what a goldmine! (I tell you about selling special interest videos at high prices to special markets in our book Shoot To Sell: Make Money Producing Special Interest Videos). It even won a Telly Award. Now if a former Human Resources Specialist with no video production experience can produce a profitable program like this the first time out, what’s stopping you?
Let’s be clear – what we talk about making special interest videos, we’re not telling you this is a crazy get-rich-quick scheme. No, this is a long-range approach, where you keep producing a stream of programs that have a long potential shelf life, sometimes as long as 15 – 20 years. Now, you may produce a big hit program right away, which would be great, but honestly you shouldn’t bet on that. The goal is to produce a body of programs that all contribute to your gross income. The more programs you produce, the greater the net residual income. It’s about creating multiple streams of income that all feed into a large river.
Your success rests on choosing the right topic, producing it efficiently and economically, and then marketing the heck out of it. You can do it if you follow a successful formula.
Believe me, I’ve made my share of mistakes in every one of these areas, and I’m continually learning new things. That’s why we created this DVD, wrote our book, and launched our Special Interest Video Academy; so that you have the advantage of learning from our successes and avoiding our mistakes. Let’s do this together.
My Secrets To Producing Successful Special Interest Videos assumes that you know the basics of videography, and so it is not a “how to shoot a video” program. There are plenty of those available if that is what you need. Rather, this program concentrates on aspects of SIV production which many videographers may not be aware of.
In this 35-minute DVD you will learn:
• My procedures for researching and selecting topics to produce.
• How to find subject matter experts to work with – and what kind of agreements you can make with them.
• How to structure a script and how to prepare for the unique requirements of producing SIVs.
• What a shot list is and how to work with one in order to efficiently shoot and make sure you won’t miss any shots.
• Why you MUST get appropriate releases, licenses and permission for all media…and why copyrights are so important.
• How to decide what type of narration to incorporate and find and work with a narrator.
• The unique requirements of Special Interest Video production and how to prepare for them.
Combined with our book, Shoot To Sell: Make Money Producing Special Interest Videos, you’ll be ready to begin building a rewarding Special Interest Video production and marketing business.
This DVD includes my script template (Microsoft Word format) and a project idea generation exercise in .pdf format which you can print and use repeatedly.
“I’ve been writing and selling eBooks for a few years now and once I was ready to make the move into special interest videos, I called the only true experts I know on this subject for advice — Kim and Rick Smith. They are true professionals who really know their stuff when it comes to producing, marketing and selling SIVs or any other information product for that matter. The ideas I gained in our time together on the phone blew me away! The information and resources they shared with me were easily worth 100 times the cost of the session. If you have ever thought about producing information products for profit or simply want ideas on how to take your existing efforts to the next level, I highly recommend Kim and Rick’s information products and consulting services. These are smart people who love what they do and they genuinely want to help you succeed.”
