Business training for solo creatives.

We all love shooting and editing videos, but when it comes to marketing, selling, and trying to find clients - most videographers don't know where to start. Luckily for you, I have created a business resource that will teach you how to book ideal clients as a freelancer. It's called Solo Video Pro.

Solo Video Pro is an on-demand business course for videographers interested in booking more gigs with higher paying clients. These trainings walk students through the process of starting, selling, and growing a solo freelance business in 2 hours - not 2 years. 

Master reaching out to potential clients, marketing on social media, turning projects faster, and breaking into new niches like real estate, weddings, and more. 

Welcome to the fast-track of owning a profitable freelance business!

Best Purchase I've Made!

Andrew McGuire, Member

"Without a doubt, the best purchase I've made as a small business owner. If you are looking to get into a market that continues to grow every day - check out Solo Video Pro."

I am really glad I signed up!

-Sam Malkasian, freelance videographer

"For those contemplating on taking the course, I literally JUST finished the first season of lessons and found it super helpful. I honestly hadn’t put as much thought into the legal side of my business... but it gave me something to think about. Also it’s video style so literally listened while driving. Any content I want to go back over and take notes, it’s super easy to get back. So, all that to say, from the bit I’ve seen so far, I’m really glad I signed up #notasponsor:"
