Diving the caverns and cenotes scattered across the Yucatan Peninsula is truly a unique scuba diving experience, but not one that should be taken lightly.

Having a business that requires you to create video content on a regular basis can be tricky. This is because the cost of video production is not cheap. You need expensive equipment and talented videographers to get the job done. So, is it better to hire freelance videographers or an in-house video production team?

Here are 6 simple reasons hiring freelance videographers is a better idea for your business:

Types of Explainer Videos Most Often Used by Small Businesses

Explainer videos are videos created specifically to explain ideas or topics in a simple way. The videos can be about anything but will depend on the target audience and the message the video creator wants to convey. Explainer videos are very popular because of their simplicity and interesting animation styles, most types are easy to make, require very little equipment and, for those with a fear of being on camera, don't require a live performance.

Here are 6 types of popular explainer videos most often used by small businesses...

In 2016 and beyond, search engine marketing is not complete without adding video marketing to the mix. After the popularity increase of social media, search engines are now adding another element to their SEO and ranking algorithm, which is video content. This is because, like social media in the last four or five years, video marketing has also very recently gained a tremendous increase in popularity because video content adds quality and usability to the overall user experience that search engines are demanding from content providers and those who wish to be found on their platforms.

Story
Tagline
L. Scott Harrell is a Startup CEO - VideoToOrder.com - Who Speaks Leadership and Digital Media Masterfully.
Introduction

Current Projects
I am the Chief Executive Officer of Broadside Incorporated, a startup focused on developing two new online projects focused on video content.

The first is Vtrep.com, an online journal for entrepreneurial filmmakers. Our mission is to position Video Entrepreneur Magazine as the leading community resource for professionals who are ready to capitalize on the unprecedented -business opportunities- in digital video content.

The second is VideoToOrder.comvideo content production and services marketplacecurrently in private beta, is the global marketplace where buyers can find freelance video professionals who will create, edit and market all types of video content for them.

Based upon mountains of data and research, it is obvious that going into 2015, businesses must produce video content in order to compete for the attention of online consumers. The problem is that very few companies have:

  • figured out how to actually create compelling video content,
  • the time or equipment required to plan, shoot and edit their own video content,
  • the confidence to get in front of the videocamera and “put themselves out there.” or,
  • the expertise to properly optimize, distribute and market video content.
If the need for affordable video content and distribution is a pain point, then VideoToOrder.com is the solution.

VTO solves the overwhelming need for video content production and marketing by offering buyers a huge selection of talented freelance video professionals able to meet almost any need and budget.

Whether someone wants to buy or sell video content, video production or other related service, VideoToOrder.com is the place to be.

Freelance and micro job marketplaces are among the fastest growing companies on the Internet today. VTO is in the enviable position to potentially transform the multibillion dollar video market.

I am working to find a talented development co-founder as well as seeking early-stage investment capital, or membership with a top startup accelerator program, and rapidly bring VideoToOrder.com to a hungry global market.

I am building a vertical that I hope will one day provide shape and direction to entrepreneurial filmmaking and how the massive commercial demand for video content will be met.

Professional Strengths
Competitive advantage and business strategy through the ethical application of open source information collection, human resources, technology, social media and bleeding-edge marketing techniques. I am a powerful communicator, proven organizational leader and visionary.

A fantastic place to stay long term. Secure and safe. Management is highly responsive to needs and maintenance issues. All units are furnished. The grounds are well kept and the pool is the perfect place to relax. Close enough to everything in Cozumel but far enough away to "get away". Kid friendly with a mix of residents and vacationers.

Los Alcatraces is my favorite Bed and Breakfast in Cozumel, Mexico! Staying here is like staying with family. Silvia is an absolute riot to be around and Greg is a fantastic host. The location is fantastic as it just a block off of one of the main streets where everything is convenient and the B&B is a very short walk away from the charm of downtown. The gated property and surrounding neighborhood is safe and the rooms are clean and well appointed. The bed is really comfortable! The pool was always clean and fresh. I liked having the dive equipment rinse basins and a place to hang everything out to dry; the owners are obviously scuba divers, too.
