Update – Taunton Business Network – what did Buggles say….

March 5, 2012

Video killed the radio star – so said Buggles – a song describing a singer whose career is cut short by television.

The seminar at this event will show that video is no longer killing but actively enhancing your business if used

BizVidz seminar on 28th March will demonstrate this.  Owner Sam Findlay’s synopsis

“The Dummies Guide to Internet Marketing Basics – An Introduction to Your Digital Hub.
The DNA of Video on the Internet – What Works Where and Why – with video example from the net. 
The Cold Hard Truth to the Question – So Why Do I Need to use Video? – A 10 Minute Summary with some powerful Statistics and a case study of an experiment I did to prove a theory to myself.”

Wednesday 28th March 2012 at Mount Somerset Hotel

Seminar before lunch – hosted by Sam Findlay – Biz Vidz

“On-line Video is to the Web what Photography has been to Print”

Can you imagine a magazine or your company brochure without photographs?

Sam will show you how powerful a marketing tool on-line video is – where and when it makes sense to use it – and how it will help you generate more business.

The seminar will focus on clarifying why video has become such an important ingredient in ones marketing mix.
Where it sits within ones online marketing strategy and how it can be used to support and generate new business.
Why businesses now need to think about the value of the content that surrounds them and how they can use their own resources to make it more affordable.
