I was a trader for a large hedge fund for nearly 10 years before getting into marketing. I had a trading account valued at five million dollars and I was very good at what I did.

So what should you invest in? Where should you put your hard earned cash to protect yourself against unstable market conditions?

Are taking advantage of the second most used search engine?

In this episode I explain the importance of using video as content marketing strategy to become more known, like, and trusted. 

When we see people's face,  we start to like them. This goes back to our caveman brain. When we say someone regularly, we began to like and trust them. How often have you ever seen a celebrity in person and felt like you known them? Because you see them everywhere on TV. This same type of “celebrity effect” is available for you and your business.

I’m convinced that video outperforms all other forms of marketing. It's also a powerful tool for delivering value and building relationships.
