Thanks for your kind words, and for subscribing to my videos on Youtube.
I'll have to start stepping up my game now
To answer your question: Yes!
I think it's a great idea for contractors to make videos.
Videos are a great way of connecting with people. Make your videos so they show off your personality. People do business with people they like. So show your unique personality with video. It's a way to make your business more human, which will help your sales.
Remember, videos online don't have to be fancy, or even professional. When people view an online video, they don't look at it like it's on TV. Production quality isn't as important (my videos are a blatant example of this.)
My advice is to throw up a video on your site. And watch what happens! Don't forget to make it a little fun too.
Website tip: Throw your video up on Google Local. And fill out every single option on there, including coupons, photos, and 4 phone/fax/cell/other numbers. There is evidence this can rocket you up the local Google rankings.
Anyway, it's good to be here. Thanks for the welcome!
