    Hey Guys,

    So as a side-project I'm starting a video production company with a good friend of mine. My friend has worked with some popular major tv series and created corporate videos for people. He's tired of the politics of working for a big place and we want to start off our own thing.

    So he's really good a creating videos and recording and I'll be getting a lot of the leads and marketing which I can do. I'll also help him shoot video and help with the editing.

    Were thinking of getting into everything, weddings, corporate videos, small business etc. Anyone have experience with this, I would love any tips or things you have experienced. Is there any sub-niches you suggest we stay away from? Or some good targets we should go for.

    I think to start were going to use some of my contacts and barely charge them so we have a bigger video's for references, also add the videos and work he has done and we should have some good references.

    Just wanted to ask this great community if they had any tips or experience with this.

    get some media contacts and ad film makers.. they can get u projects all the time... make sure you have a great website with great samples in it. do seo and offcourse release some good PR about it in reputed sites.. u will get good audience and targetted one... you can do ppc if ur confident about it. While building links for seo, dont use scraped.. use original by this way, google will be happy and so visitors will also be.. if u have some good budget then use youtube video ads.. it works great to pull clients.. target videos related to ur niche..

    Yeah I think the most important thing is to have examples to show people. If you can offer a good price just to start making contacts and getting word of mouth referrals, and you can show people examples of your work so they are satisfied with quality - then you should be good to go
