72: YouTube Videos to Market Your Business, with Wedding Photographer Cavin Elizabeth

When Cavin Elizabeth moved to the San Diego market, she was wondering if making educational videos and sharing them on YouTube would be a way to attract clients and grow her business.  After 140 videos and over 1,700 subscribers, YouTube has been a resounding success. But why aren’t most of us taking advantage of video marketing? We talk all about it in this week’s episode!
