Video Biz class by Len Elder and Theresa Barnabei, Course Creators

Video Biz, a class on "how to maximize the use of videos in your business," is taught by Len Elder and Theresa Barnebei, national speakers and owners of a Tucson-based business called Course Creators.

Len Elder and Theresa Barnebei will be speakers at the upcoming NAR convention in San Diego.  If you're going to be there, don't miss these two.

Video for business

While many of you jumped right in with Flip Video last year, I was not an "early adopter" of the technology. I was intimidated by it.

That changed on Thursday of this past week.  I signed up for Course Creator's Video Biz seminar, knowing full well that the curve for learning about using video in my business had passed me by.  I knew I'd have to huff and puff a little to catch up with the rest of you.

In a room filled with REALTORs, I was the only lender.  I was encouraged, however, to see that I was not the old man of the group! If my count is right, there were 15 attendees.  The seminar accomplished much more than I expected.

I've always believed that my fingers have to do the walking if my brain is going to remember what I just heard.  Course Creators subscribes to that belief.  Elder & Barnabei produced a "hands on" class, and by the end of the day, all 15 or so students, ranging in age from twenty-something to seventy, had...

  • chosen a topic
  • written a storyboard,
  • shot and edited video,
  • inserted video clips, 
  • created transitions,
  • inserted still photographs to fill out the story,
  • created and inserted charts and graphs,
  • dubbed voice-over commentary,
  • added music in the background, and
  • produced a finished product. 

We even learned how to upload the movie to YouTube!  All for $99.

Theresa Barnebei has a passion for three things in her classes.  She tells her seminar students:

I want you to get it.

I want you to use it.

I want you to become more successful because of it.

I collected all three brass rings!  The Video Biz seminar was a huge success for me.  Len Elder and Theresa Barnabei have given me an effective new business tool. 

As a result, I'm looking forward to my next seminar with Course Creators.

You'll be seeing the results in future posts to my Active Rain blog and my two outside blogs.  Stay tuned!

Hi Mike,

I think Video is definitely the way to go.  However, as you mentioned, it takes time to become a true expert!  My business has grown substantially and I'm in the process of trying to put the right people in place to handle the growth! Keep up the good work!

Terry,

You won't be disappointed!

Tracy,

I'm following in your footsteps.

Karen,

The video has meta-tags just like your posts, I learned.  And if we do it right, we engage our readers.  I'm pretty excited about the prospects.

Lou,

I'm coming over to your blog to check out your video!  Thanks for commenting.
