    Spaces are limited, so first come, first serve.

As humans, we love video. It’s engaging, personal, and captivating. In 2021, it’s estimated the average person will watch 100 minutes of online video daily. And small businesses — such as independent writers —  are increasingly including video in their promotional plans and on their websites.

Reno Lovison, Chicago-based video producer and owner of Reno Lovison Marketing, will share his expertise on how writers can best employ video to increase traffic to their websites and woo new customers. Among other questions, Reno will answer:

  • Why is video such an effective marketing tool?
  • Why are an increasing number of small businesses using video in their marketing efforts?
  •  How does a writer get started with video?
  • How do videographers work with clients? (For example, how does a videographer prepare people who are understandably a bit uncomfortable if they’ve never been on camera before?)
  • How can video be used to repurpose content?  
  • What is the range of cost options?
  • What about DIY video -- what equipment is needed?

Join us for a lively presentation sure to spark your interest in giving video a place in your future.
