    Dlina – I sometimes record later in the day so lighting isn’t optimal. Thanks for the feedback!

    Ramzi – capital never hurts, although smart entrepreneurs find good ways to bootstrap too.

    Glad it’s useful.

    Good luck!

    Ross – No doubt! Lord knows I’ve used the words “shoestring” and “bootstrap” on more than one occasion.

    Question: I’m interested in engaging a small marketing firm in the Los Angeles area to help us with some of our social media marketing efforts. Do you have any thoughts on whom we might approach? Thanks again!!

    I prefere to read instead of watching a video for information I want to retain, but good effort anyway. Thanks!

    Thanks for the feedback. Videos can be good and I’m trying to include transcripts in future videos to give people some choice.

    Ramzi – I’m not familiar with firms in LA, but recommend you reach out to Sarah Hardwick at Zenzi (they’re in San Diego). http://zenzimarketing.com/

    They typically work with larger brands, but perhaps either also take on smaller clients or could recommend someone in your area.
