A new DVD entitled Special Interest Video Magazine Vol. 1 by Hal Landen is a companion video to his definitive book entitled Secrets of Producing and Selling Successful Videos. The video reveals many secrets of selling non-fiction DVDs. Unlike video service businesses, the special interest or non-fiction video business lets you multiply your profits. Create a good product once and sell it many times.
Hal Landen brings over 25 years of experience in the non-fiction film and video business to this project. He founded VideoUniversity.com, which Forbes Magazine calls one of the best business-to-business web sites for digital video production. He has freelanced for ABC's 20/20, CBS's 60 Minutes, Warner Brothers, and many others.
This magazine-style DVD offers three distinct segments all designed to help both the novice and experienced producer improve their sales. Here are some of the things you will learn:
What Do Distributors Want?
Leslie Kussman, producer-distributor from Aquarius Media in the Boston area, shares her expertise on how to produce and market a successful video. She should know. She has built a very successful business. Her distribution company is always looking for videos that serve her market of hospitals, libraries, and health care providers.
How To Get a Good Review For Your Video
Next we go to the West Coast and visit Randy Pittman the editor- publisher of Video Librarian Magazine. This publication reviews over 200 videos every issue. You may think libraries are just for books, but today some libraries spend $1 million a year buying DVDs. Shouldn't you get a share? Randy explains the review process with lots of helpful examples.
Pricing Pitfalls and Opportunities
The third segment is about pricing your DVD. Why price your video at$19.95 when you can make a lot more money at other price points. You'll learn about the psychology of prices, niche vs. mass marketing, value pricing, and lots more. You'll even learn about a video set that sells for $1795!
