Making videos for fun and profit

I have been uploading videos to YouTube since 2011, St. Patrick’s Day.

Originally, I did so to generate leads and clients for my solicitor’s practice.

And for the following ten or eleven years I simply continued making and publishing videos and distributing them widely on social media sites, after firstly uploading to YouTube.

Always with the fixed purpose of growing my business through brand building and client acquisition.

And it worked. In fact, it worked far better than I could ever imagine.

But in the last few years I have developed a love of making videos for the sake of making them and to give vent to some type of need that you might generously call creative.

And the journey of learning to make better videos, which are basically little films, has been an enjoyable one, one that is not, and never will be finished.

I never thought I would get as much satisfaction about thinking about making better little films, whether they are simply me out flying my drone or baking bread or working in the office or doing some type of vlog, which I am hoping to develop to a greater extent in 2023.

Now my video making can be divided into two broad categories: 1) information type videos about some aspect of law or business for the viewer and 2) a fun, experimental type video just for me.

I think it’s a fair deal.
