In looking through the SCU archives this morning, I found this video going back just over five years ago. It's ironic I'd run across this video the day after sharing a post about the importance of partnerships.
At the risk of sounding like I'm beating a dead horse, (hope that expression translates for readers in other parts of the world) it's so stupid for you to take on the burden of promotional costs without partners. And, there are so many partners to choose from. You don't have to do it all alone!
Now to the fun of Throwback Thursday and this video. While it shows only 90 views on YouTube, it got a lot more and was one of my most watched for a long time. The brilliance and fun of Sal Cincotta's magazine is that each online article includes a video at the end from the author. Shutter Magazine launched in 2012, and I'm so proud to have been involved with every issue to date.
While most of the writers are full-time professional photographers with the ability to demonstrate a technique in their videos, for me it's a little tougher. Being creative in a video about marketing and business is hard. So, with Sheila's help, we started out doing them in a way that would remind you of whatever point I was trying to make.
