Do You Have to be Good at Sales to Run A Video Production Business?

So just how good are you at sales? Any sales experience? Most people have done something in their past – perhaps a part-time job in college or even a full-time “real” sales job. The fact is that while you don’t have to have any sales experience to run a Home Video Studio you probably have some experience that will come in to play once you have opened up your own studio. 

The good news is you don’t have to be a natural born sales person to be successful.  

What do you need then? What do you need to become a successful Home Video Studio owner? You need motivation for one thing.  

You need to be motivated to make your business work. If you have a passion for film, video, movies, computers, tech or even just running a business, you can take that passion and really build a successful business on it. What you'll find is that your passion and excitement will be contagious! Your customers will sense this. It makes making sales so easy. 

Think of the effort you have put into your past or current job. Most of you probably work your butts off for your employers. What you’ll find when you run your own Home Video Studio is that you will work much harder when you work for yourself. It is such a joy. Once again that joy makes it easy to handle the sales part of HVS. 

We’ll help you develop sales skills. We have a great training coming up in Tucson, AZ in late July. In fact, we have two conference calls each week focused on sales and marketing. If you like people, you can make a lot of money in this business. 

Our next Show 'N Tell Saturday is in Indianapolis on Saturday, June 24 and Saturday July 1. Call for details: 317-358-5932 or just call with questions. 

If you need assistance in funding we have funding available for a limited time.

May the Force be with You!

Jim Fitzhugh of Katy, TX Starts A Home Video Studio Business

Jim Fitzhugh of Katy, Texas
They say everything is bigger in Texas and Jim, who was installed in May 2017, is the first owner using Home Video Studio's new signature edit desk – it's cool and it's big! Meet Jim Fitzhugh, owner of Home Video Studio – Katy, Texas! 

Jim was "born on the bayou" growing up in Houma, Louisiana about 60 miles south of New Orleans. He became interested in the visual arts early in life watching his dad shoot 8mm home movies. Then he really got serious: "Early in high school I got the photography bug," says Jim. "I even turned a closet into a darkroom and bought a photo enlarger."

Upon high school graduation Jim attended LSU and majored in Mechanical Engineering. He then set out on a long and successful career in the energy industry working for Amoco (since merged with BP). 

Jim's interest in video and photography remained strong as an adult and he decided to keep it up as a serious hobby and an escape from the daily pressure of work. He bought the equipment he needed to shoot and edit video – then placed a Yellow Page ad for video production services. 

"My plan was to make enough money to pay for the equipment, then shut off the advertising and business aspect...I just wanted to pay for my hobby," laughs Jim, "but one of the first calls I got was for VHS copies, so I went to a store and bought 10 VCRs. Now I was in the video services business." 

"Early in high school I got the photography bug," says Jim. "I even turned a closet into a darkroom and bought a photo enlarger."


Fitzhugh soon reinvested in a Mac G5 and began honing his production and editing chops. Then in the early 2000s he saw an ad for Home Video Studio in a video magazine. "I was interested because I figured there were a lot of secrets I just didn't know about. But the timing wasn't right because I was still very busy with work." Video, however, remained an important part of Jim's life as a fulfilling hobby. 

In 2005, just before Jim retired from BP, the biggest challenge of his career came. As Hurricane Katrina wreaked havoc in the gulf Jim was faced with coordinating the shutting down and dismantling of many damaged oil platforms containing numerous producing oil and gas wells – a touchy situation with millions upon millions of dollars and, more important, many human lives at stake. Besides a pressure relief Jim used his video skill to produce a video recap of these operations. 

Finally, upon retiring and 15 years after running across Home Video Studio , Fitzhugh decided to revisit them. "I was retired, needing some guidance, and bored," says Jim, "so I gave Robert a call." Everything fell into place quickly and Jim Fitzhugh became a studio owner in Katy, Texas, just outside of Houston.

Just installed, Jim has some definite plans for his new lifestyle. "I've broken my goals down into what I call my VIP goals," says Jim. "That's V for video goals, I for income goals, and P for personal satisfaction goals." 

We welcome Jim Fitzhugh to the Home Video Studio family!

What about you?Would you like to change your career? Have you spent three years or three decades and now you would like to be somewhere else? Sick of your job? Start your own Home Video Studio. If you have quesiotns, call me. 

Call me. Let’s chat. 317-358-5932. 


May be Force be with You.
