Use video on sniper sites to connect with
your old and new customers. They are
your autopilot salesmen on the internet
working 24 hours every day worldwide.
“Really, can you name a company
whose marketing strategy should NOT
include informative internet videos?”
Training Videos & Training Websites
I create staff training videos, DVDs, and special
password-protected websites for adult learning.
Videos are a great way to educate staff and contract
workers on your Standard Operating Procedures

Tell Your Story With A Whiteboard Movie
In a whiteboard movie a hand draws out
quickly what the voiceover is saying. People
love them. Fastdraw videos can convey complex
information in a fun way. I have drawn these for
syndicated mortgages, membership programs,
cloud software, woodworking, etc.
It’s free to show your story to millions.
