The Trends Are On Your Side
7X Better Engagement
Fresh, authentic, "under-produced" (aka not polished) videos get more engagement than their counterparts.
According to Typeform, taking a phone, sharing your creds, and making an ask or offer gets 7x better engagement than highly produced pieces.
Most professional videography projects cost at least $15k. This course provides a cost-effective solution to produce impactful videos without breaking the bank.
Don't let a limited budget hold you back from using video to tell your story powerfully.
I must say that I am incredibly grateful to you for opening up so many possibilities and helping me with my business in more ways than you will ever know! Just to let you know that by God’s grace somehow we have managed to get 125 people registered for our first ancestral challenge and our list has grown to 1,176 and it's all thanks to your brilliant expertise and ability to simplify complicated and scary marketing ideas. I am so excited about my business which is something I wouldn't have said a year ago and that's all because of you!

Psychologist, Television Personality, Speaker, Author
I like that you teach people with ethical and moral intentions to use the tools of the system we live in. You can change the system when you know the tools to use. This shows how to use the tools we already have access to, in an appropriate manner, and using our sense of social purpose. Everything you’re saying is about using the tools for organizational capacity.
