Many of my clients continue to want to make TV commercials. This does not surprise me because according to Statista, TV advertising revenue, TV advertising revenue in the U.S. surpassed 71.1 billion dollars last year. Small and large businesses know that TV commercials are still the best way to get the word out about a new product or service to a national or local audience. My clients request TV commercials because so many people still watch TV and in a local area like Pittsburgh, it can be quick and easy to put out a simple yet effective TV commercial to let people know you are in business! For example I had a customer who owns a large online services company that helps small and large companies get the word out about their business. Their company advertises to other companies so putting out 6 short 15-second commercials was very impactful for them. They got the word out very quickly and now everyone knows who they are on a local level. When I first started working in video production, I never really thought about which questions to ask my clients before creating a commercial. I always assumed that if they wanted a commercial for their business then they would know what they wanted and needed. I was wrong. If a business has never been through this process of creating a TV commercial, there are four key questions they should answer first. These questions are… READ THE FULL ARTICLE, „How To Make A TV Commercial For Your Business“ on my blog (clickable link in my bio @joshbirt )

Our next weekly content creator and friend, @sweatengine, has an incredible passion for what he does. Here’s his amazing story: „For about 5 years, I was doing biomedical engineering, designing artificial joint replacements. I had a great job; I had a career going. But—I wasn’t going anywhere; I wasn’t meeting anyone; I wasn’t seeing anything. Back in 2009, I had a bad breakup. I decided to be healthy and started running marathons and I soon started a blog focused on marathons. I was doing it on the side as a hobby to take my mind off things. That’s where I got my handle because I used to be a sweaty engineer! That’s how I also picked up photography. I was taking photos of my shoes and at the marathons. I had recently bought the iPhone 4s and someone told me about this app where you could promote your photos—it was called @instagram. Pretty quickly it threw my life upside down. I started connecting with locals who were sharing the same kind of content as me. A little less than a year into it, I started photographing with someone I met through @instagram. We soon both quit our jobs and decided to drive around the country, meeting other people through @instagram. Everything started rolling from there. I’ve never looked back. I’ve been fortunate to get big clients so I can make this work. Initially people told me that if you want to make money, don’t become a photographer, but I work really hard and I’ve been very fortunate. Every day I wake up, it’s hard to believe that I’m able to do this, taking photos on my camera phone and making a living of it. It’s an exciting time. I had no idea that 3 years after quitting my job, I’d be invited to the White House to photograph—I’d never believe it. It’s why people love social media, it’s this exciting time where there’s an intersection between tech and art. Sometimes it’s overwhelming, to be at the biggest fashion shows in New York City, it’s mind-blowing. I’m just a guy with an iPhone. I see all these kids waiting to get a glimpse of Fashion Week and meanwhile, I’m here. All because I quit my job and I wanted to do something bigger with my life.“
