How Will You Bring Your Ideas to Life?
Especially when your business is one-of-a-kind?
"You Don't Want to Make That Kind of Video"...
That’s what the guru told the newbie who had just begun his journey to start an online business.
“Really? I thought it would have to be good to be persuasive.”
“Hah!”, the guru retorted. “Look, I didn’t do anything like that and you paid me ten grand to tell you this. I’m going to save you years of heartache. Nobody cares about video. We’ve got a Flip. We don’t need anything else. Don’t waste your time.”
The guy was conflicted. He saw that if he took their advice he’d save himself a lot of work.
But he also knew that being a copycat among a zillion other copycats was not what he was put here to do. Even if he didn’t become a millionaire in four weeks. So he walked away from the training.
That guy was me. And yes, that lesson was worth every penny of the ten grand I spent not putting any of that guru’s ideas into action.
And Now Video Is Exploding
The quality bar is being raised everyday. And for those in image-sensitive markets, for coaches, consultants and service providers especially, video can provide a major boost in becoming a visible authority.
The problem is cookie cutter solutions when every person’s business is vastly different than every other person’s business, and no one approaches video in quite the same way.
That’s why I had to create something new; something very different.
The Inner Circle
It’s not just one way of becoming a Visible Authority. It’s based on one’s actual business, the stage it’s in, its customers and that business owner's skill level. Members of the Inner Circle get what they need every week in a live hangout, where we all get together to solve real business problems. They also get access to all my courses.
This is literally where regular folks become video marketers; how to get clients and partners and raise themselves to a higher level of visibility.
It’s not for everyone. Not because of the price. Most masterminds are three to ten times as much. It’s exclusive because the people who are part of it have reached an important milestone in their business no matter what stage it’s in. They’ve promised themselves they just aren’t going to waste any more of their precious time.
It's a special place. A membership-based mastermind with the resources and savvy to help you make your videos stand out like crazy.
You can get quick answers to noggly questions. You can pursue a long-term goal with everyone tracking your progress and cheering you on. You can take a course in an area you want to get better at.
And remember, video is always changing.
That's why we spend a lot of time and money reviewing the latest technologies so you can focus on your business and still stay up to date on the latest and greatest (and more often, not so great) advancements in the world of web video 2.0.
This helps you make smarter choices about how to spend your hard-earned money. Basically I throw mine away mine so you don't have to waste yours.
You know what? This barely scratches the surface. Let's just say The Video Brain Trust is big enough to give you whatever you want and intimate enough to give you what you need.
Let's look at the idea behind this oasis in the desert.
I was a miserable camera shy newbie, who could not read a script right, let alone writing a script, nor making any video. Now, I have my own weekly HOA show with my buddy in Italy. Recorded more than 50 HOA videos by now (in 6 months). I created a membership site for my Healing Course with over 40 videos in the same time.
I am amazed by Steven’s way of showing up and be available for us without fail. I love it! I gain more experience and inside knowledge about all aspects of on-line marketing, video making, social media, sales funnel technology, the weather in Oregon and how I can cope with too many things on my plate. He handles it all!Margherita Crystal Lotus The Crystal Lotus

Custom Strategy For Your Products and Promotions
When you're ready to step up your game...when you're OK with being in the spotlight...when playing it safe no longer makes you happy...you might be ready for The Inner Circle.
Who do you run your content strategy by? Your family? It only annoys them. Your friends? They already think you're crazy. The gurus won't talk to you and the rest of the online community are either too busy or too uninformed to help.
That leaves you in limbo.
Now... imagine showing up once a week for a very intimate call. There are no more than a dozen or so people in the coaching session. However, all of them are at your level of commitment.
And you find that the problems you're getting solved are not unique. They are shared by nearly everyone on the call with you. What's more, you get all the time you need to get support on whatever's holding you back.
And you leave with a clear plan and a new sense of purpose.
Not bad for an hour's work.
You're getting my best thinking and total support. You're getting cutting edge strategies combined with a classically-trained perspective.
So naturally, we can best serve marketers with a bias towards taking action.
To support you in every possible way, you're getting attention from every possible angle.
Here's how we do it:
Inner Circle Member Support
Weekly Training & Mastermind
This is the heart of the Inner Circle. We take the first part of our time to learn about a marketing concept or video concept that everyone is hot to know about. From scriptwriting to list-building to adwords to product funnels, we've probably touched on it at least once or twice.
But these calls are really reserved for you to get your burning questions answered and coaching on whatever you've got cooking. Most of our Inner Circle members put the highest value on this part of the program. Why? Clarity and focus. When you're in the trenches and don't know what to do next, clarity is priceless.
If you get lucky, you can find this level of support and guidance in 5-figure Masterminds.
A one-hour private consult with Steve to get you started right. We'll decide how your videos will fit into your marketing and product or service delivery plans, establish benchmarks, then stay accountable to each other to hit them.
Before I started working with Steve, I knew that video marketing was vital for my business, but I didn’t know where to begin, and I was self-conscious in front of the camera. Now, I’m happy that I’ve made a marketing video that I’m really proud of, feel much more comfortable on camera, and, most important to me, feel really supported and empowered to continue improving.
I receive direction from Steve not only on improving my videos but also (and this is BIG) support and direction to improve my business. It’s personal and geared to me. As a result, I can apply what I’m learning.
My favorite thing about being in the Inner Circle is that I not only receive personal attention about my videos and my business, but also, Steve keeps notes so he remembers things that are important to me, with the result that he can help me with the direction I’m going in.
