Why I Shoot Video on Vacation

On Vacation in St. Maarten

You might think it a bit odd for a lawyer to shoot video while on vacation with his family. You might think it’s strange for an attorney to take his video camera gear, microphone and tripod to a Caribbean family destination. You might even think it unusual that a lawyer would WANT to spend time teaching and showing his kids different ways to market a business using online video, and that’s ok if you do.

However, my family knows that I always take my camera gear when we go away. They know how important video is to market a law firm online. They see the results of my video marketing every day when I receive calls and emails from prospective clients raising their hand  asking for more information about the topic I talked about in my video.

I want to share a secret with you. One reason why I shoot video while on vacation is that it’s totally different from the stuffy, formal videos we see so often. Typically an attorney is sitting at their desk or in front of their dust-collecting bookshelf. I like to be different. I’ll shoot video at the beach; in a parking lot; in a corridor…anyplace really.

When on vacation, I wake up with new ideas to use video to market my own solo law practice (with much success) and for the really smart lawyers who participate in my Total Online Video Success program. It’s energizing. It’s invigorating and there’s not much downside to doing that while watching the gorgeous crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean at the beach.

Gerry is an absolute master at getting you to relax and speak to the camera in such a way that the clients – the potential clients – are going to be receptive to the message that you’re giving them. I decided to use video to market my law firm because YouTube is the second largest video search website on the internet, next to Google. And at some point in time, is probably going to overtake Google. So, I think it’s absolutely critical to have content out there to appeal to potential clients in your practice area. I would go to Gerry Oginski and really learn what a master in this area would do for you. Because it is absolutely clear that Gerry’s understanding of shooting video – in particular for personal injury trial lawyers- is so far beyond anybody else in this area that you would doing yourself a real disservice if you spent your money any other way
