So just left on my list is to deal with my car situation and deal with my online videos for business – there is one each for introduction, cd dvd duplication, talent agency, video marketing and video production, printing and postering, and finally music marketing and small business marketing.
I get a bit unfocused when the clouds part. I’m not out of these woods yet but it reminds me – back to square one now dealing with these long term projects, if only I could decide to get them done . . . then what? Maybe it’s because I start to look at my list and you know I think . . .
Finish my videos, that will only take 3 days if I really try.
Catch up with my client campaigns or hire an assistant? Whichever, I have to push forward – it’s not a huge amount of work but it maybe slow going with the communication and picking up where we were.
I’d like to be secure enough to hire an assistant and train them mainly by doing these catch up campaigns because it’s a really good example of how we’d be working, patching up areas of campaigns where we’d hit a snag or as is sometimes the case, I was not particularly motivated to address. And that way I can get my assistants trained up, in a live client situation, but not one one in which they’re going to lose me any important clients or have me working to cover any mistakes or anything overlooked.
Then we move to the websites which we’re only really focusing on artist sites, the video production websites, perhaps the talent sites – for now – my reasoning is there’s no need to develop any websites which I don’t see myself having an immediate commitment to developing that business.
My marketing and my consultancy is moving closer to being a contract working with individual parties who are prepared to work with me in a mangement capacity, so I don’t see the point in a major development of the websites related to that. Which were just blogs, but still. No more required there for now.
– Artist site
– Video site
– Maybe talent site
Not many sites to do right now really, just my artist site and what are the issues there? Mainly I need photos and videos. I want to introduce videos to the site, newsletter, something I can advertise really.
I want my songs on there. I want my twitter feed on there. Maybe I need 2 blogs, one thats more newsy and another that’s crazy.
Essentially, I need my photos. Then I can cut a PSD and send it off to be coded. end of story.
So not a huge amount of work required essentially for video, for campaigns for websites, mainly because these are all business projects and my direction is polarized. CD / DVD duplication and printing for profit, video and talent for enjoyment. All that other marketing stuff I’m open to but I need an assistant to work with me on it.
It’s makes me really think I need to offer any assistants large cuts of the business I’m bringing in because I just can’t take on the work otherwise.
In the video area, I just don’t have the experience, I need to be doing work before I can seriously promote our services, I need to get in there. I think I really need an assistant with whom to tackle this and I think a clear direction is forming.
I need to move forward with video, marketing and talent in one drive. I’m talking about super talent.
Someone who can help me in marketing, video and have talent, or more, talent who could be retained as an assistant.
