In a nutshell, Guru Blueprint is a complete training and coaching course on how to build successful “Info Product Business”.

Some of the benefits are:

  • Once the product is created, it has a very minimum maintenance cost

My experience with Guru Blueprint:

This is the most “business-like” training course I have ever experienced online. I learn not only the technical aspects of the business like creating a website or getting visitors, but also how to build a real business using a proven business blueprint. According to Eben Pagan, this is the exact blueprint he uses to build his profitable info-poduct business empire.

In my honest opinion, the business blueprint or framework is the most valuable part of the entire course. Eben has spent many years in improving and finetuning the blueprint. As his students, we don’t need to spend or waste years to go through trial and error to create our own blueprint, we just need to use what has been tested and proven to work.

Conclusion:

The Guru Blueprint training & coaching course is right for those who are serious in building a long-term and profitable info product business. There is commitment (time & effort) involved in your part as you are required to complete the 12-week coaching in order to fully understand the business blueprint. For me, it’s time well spent.

Hope you find this review useful.

Video Production Business Tip – Improve Your Focus

Every time I realize that I’m trying to do too many things in my video business, I remember the wise words of Miagi from the original Karate Kid movie, “Focus Daniel-san!”

Like many of you, I have an insatiable drive to be successful in business and in life. This can be both a blessing and a curse. I succeed because I try a lot of new things. However, I’d probably succeed faster and at higher levels if I did fewer things, but better.

Part of being a great video producer is having the ability to communicate extremely difficult messages or concepts in a way that anyone with a 6th grade education or above can understand. We have to focus in on what’s important and work really hard to simplify, simplify, simplify in order for the video to accomplish its goals.

I believe the same is true for our video production companies.

In order to accomplish our goals, we have to first create processes for marketing, selling, production, etc. but we then have to work our tails off to make them as simple as possible. Not only for ourselves as the business owners but also for those we ask to help us in various capacities.

My major problem area regarding focus is in my marketing. I feel like I am a solid marketer and that I’ve had a lot of success with marketing my video business. The only problem is that I have so many marketing balls in the air, a lot of them get dropped which leads to frustration and almost a sense of guilt because I’m not doing any one area justice which isn’t helping me accomplish my goals in a systematic way.

I’ve mentioned in some of our Insider coaching calls recently that I believe I’ve found the magic formula for using online video marketing to generate new leads and that I plan on putting a lot more time, money and energy into this effort in 2013.

The problem is that just a week or so into the new year, I’m having a lot of trouble finding the time or motivation to write scripts, get in front of the camera and edit it all together. I’ve also found that I can’t really hire this stuff out. For some reason, when it’s me driving this part of the process, the results all the way around are just better.

Basically, the process that must take place before the video marketing effort can even begin is giving me problems. It’s adding a lot of stress to my work day and I’m not sure what to do about it. The goal-driven competitor in me wants to just make room for it but the experienced entrepreneur in me is saying that if I can’t make it an easy, no-brainer process that I shouldn’t do it.

I know all I really need to do is focus on making this process as simple as possible and to make it a priority in my daily activities. Thinking about producing 5 promotional videos a week drive me crazy but spending an hour a day to write, shoot and edit a quick clip together doesn’t seem all that bad as long as I stick to it.

Plus, after I’ve perfected the process, this could be a great learning opportunity for an intern or part-time employee to come in and help make this even easier for me to manage my video production company.

Video Production Business Tips – How to Market When You Have More Time Than Money

When it comes to marketing your video business, do you have more time than money?

Are you looking for low-cost marketing strategies that will help you effectively promote your products and services? Of course you are! Who isn’t?

Here’s part of an email I received from a videographer with the same concern.

“Right now one of our biggest challenges is determining the best marketing mix to use given a very limited marketing budget. I am sure there are a lot of other videographers in the same situation and I expect you may have faced the same situation previously. I know that the answer is very dependent on the market you are in etc., but some guidance of what worked for you in the beginning would be very interesting I believe. When you are on a tight budget it is scary when you are trying to pick the right prospects to market to and then choose which marketing tools have the highest probability of being successful.”

In a sluggish economy, it’s difficult to justify spending even one dollar on marketing your video business. So, with that in mind, I’d like to introduce a few marketing tactics I’ve used over the years that will take time for you to implement but will be easy on the check book.

1. Business Networking Events – The best and most effective low-cost marketing tactic to use when your goal is generating new business is networking with other professionals at business or industry related meetings. If you are just getting started with your video business, attend as many of these as you can with the goal of meeting as many people as possible. Networking meetings usually cost less than $20 to attend and if you make it your goal to meet at least 3 new people every time you go, your network of prospects and referral partners will grow substantially over the course of several months. More people in your network equals more money in your bank account.

2. Requesting Referrals From Existing Customers – One of the easiest yet most overlooked source of new business is getting referrals from your existing customers. If you don’t already have a system in place for requesting referrals from these people, you are losing thousands of dollars in additional revenue potential for every customer that you have. I make it my goal to get at least one new account via referral from every customer.

3. Requesting and Attending Meetings With Vendors Who Serve The Same Target Market As You – If you are a wedding videographer, you are probably familiar with the importance of meeting with as many coordinators and photographers as possible so that they’ll refer you to their clients. The same goes for corporate video production. Think about the businesses that serve the same clients as you and request meetings to discuss how you can work together to help each other generate more business.
