Post Sales Needed For Video Producer

I am now a few years out of my degree, and have yet to find a course for career. For what seems to be a long time now, I have attempted to sell my services as a video producer. However, I am not sure how to sell them; where to go, who to speak with, how to convince them I have what they need, and so forth.

What I am interested in is finding someone to partner with; someone to worry about selling while I worry about the production. I have the tools to storyboard, shoot, edit, add graphics, and output the formats necessary.

Would anyone know where I could look for such person in or around the Indianapolis area?

Have you tried posting a job listing on Craigslist or sites like Indeed.com? I'd start there.

Write this down.

1st - Join video creation/video tutorial/video junkie forums.
2nd - Be helpful, educational, and respectful while participating there.
3rd - Prepare to make a sample video.
4th - Prepare to document everything you do, step-by-step, to make that sample video.
5th - Make the sample video and take notes.
6th - Organize your notes into an easy to follow system so you can explain the process to others.
7th - Build a website that you control (no blogger or wordpress.com sites) with a mailing list opt-in form (free options are fine). Your site also needs a payment portal (free paypal is fine).
8th - After you've established yourself in the community (this can take a while) update your signature to advertise your new FREE video training Hangout.

Make sure you have a date set ahead of time.

When interested parties click on the link they sign up to your event and your mailing list so you can remind them of your upcoming event as it is about to happen.

9th - Host a Google Hangout where only those who signed up can gain access. They can watch a free video about the basic of WHAT they need to do to create a professional video, ask you questions, and interact with you. (this is an option with Google Hangouts.)

Give them one strong "how" tip that will help them understand the value of what you offer.

10th - Tell them about your next educational Google hangout, where you're going to walk them through, step-by-step, how to make their first video. Your next Hangout will cost money. Send them to your checkout-page/paypal/clickbank, etc.

This is advanced marketing. If you have any questions about it, let me know.
