As a video production business owner, I bet you don’t always answer your phone when you see that the number is unfamiliar to you. In these cases, you allow voicemail to do its job. You think that if the call is urgent, a message will be left.
That’s not always the case. What’s the risk of neglecting these calls?
Advertisers or corporate producers who urgently need a videographer for their projects won’t always use voicemail. If they did, you may learn that they already hired someone to shoot their video once you try to return the call.
Last week, I have experienced ignoring phone calls twice. When I checked voicemail, I learned that they were looking for a videographer. I tried to call them after a few hours but they told me that they have hired someone else for the job.
I didn’t get $ 3000 for those potential clients because I chose not to get the phone.
Soon after, I promised that I will make it a point to pick up the phone regardless of who is calling as long as I’m not in a meeting or a shoot.
An unlisted number actually called me. Initially, I thought that it may be a sales pitch from someone who’s just going to waste my time. But when I recalled about that time when I lost two potential clients, I answered the call.
The caller happens to be from California. She’s a corporate client who needs a videographer for an event. For $ 2000, the event just needs to be shot and edited into a few short clips.
We conversed for a while and agreed on a contract. It was a quick $ 2000 to gain by just picking up the phone.
Most clients don’t really want to waste time in analyzing the work and rates of videographers. They just want to get in touch with the first person who talks to them.
They may check out your website to know if you capable. Even so, your site should appear on Google when they looked for corporate video production.
Most of them have a fixed budget. If they ask for your rate, tell them how much you usually charge for their required shoot. You should then ask, “Will that fit your budget?”
If they reply, “Of course”, have them sign the contract. If they say, “Not really”, ask them if they have another budget in mind. Tell them that you are open to discuss the budget as long as you come up with a common agreement.
Once you discussed the details of their budget, figure out if you are willing to do the job for the budget they have.
I believe that you can take the project if the budget is more than the incurred expenses. This is still a source of income for your video production business and in this way; you can gain a long time client.
It doesn’t mean that they will get video production services every time. It just means that if they ever need a videographer in your area, you’ll be first on their contact list. The value of this client is important and rewarding.
In a nutshell, just pick up the phone every time it rings. There may be a possibility that it’s a sales person. If that happens, you can simply hang up. You wouldn’t want to lose a potential video production business client because you ignored a call.

Ordered into production in March 1960, the UH-1 was the first turbine-powered helicopter to enter production for the United States military, and more than 16000 have been produced worldwide. The first combat operation of the UH-1 was in the service of the US Army during the Vietnam War. The original designation of HU-1 led to the helicopter’s nickname of Huey.

Drake is a distinguished artist trying to make himself known which he has pursued since starting with Lil wayne, signing a recording contract with Cash Money Records, and acknowledging endurance and experience by representing dameging emotional states and intense enthusiasm through the confines of the perception people have but don’t want to express. Salute to Drake and Lil Wayne for producing their new albums last year.

I’m still proceeding in that manner with trying to figure out an effective way for adding every single video again, but they will be ready soon. In the meantime, I hope everyone enjoys my new videos. I have been creating videos for a while, so don’t be surprised at my efficient style along with the exceptional skills I possess.
