We recently developed software for us to manage all of our video production resources. I don't know about you guys but is was hard for us to manage actors, crew and other resources in other Cities & States. Therefore we created software where you can manage crew by City, talent/crew type and preference. We used to keep spreadsheets of all our contacts, but it was hard for us to know who we preferred and why we preferred them. With our new system it easy for us to rate the vendors we like and insert notes about them.
Feel free to do a search for actors, camera operators, directors, audio technicians, grips and editors on our database. However our site does not reveal who entered them as contacts. We pride ourselves on keeping this information private. We welcome you to take a test drive at:
1. Customer Relationship Manager (CRM) – How do you currently keep track of all your clients and vendor resources? We made it easy for you to manage your leads and set reminders to follow up with them. If you don’t already have an online CRM this is definitely a step in the right direction to get you and your team more organized.
2. Referral System – Do you like receiving referrals from other people & businesses? We sure do and that is why we created this system that encourages members to send each other referrals in exchange for liking their page (Social exposure).
3. Internet Marketing – Sometimes it is easier to show rather than explain the technical jargon. To see a good example of the internet marketing portion please type in “Video Production Contacts” on Google and my profile shows up #1 in the organic search results.
Also, we display the top 25 contacts on our home page!
Please feel free to contact me with questions and on ways to make our website more useful for your needs.
