Getting Attention and Business During COVID and Beyond

Many of the “Shelter in Place/Stay at Home” orders are expiring over the next week or so, and even in the places that will remain under those orders there is going to be some desire to return to normalcy, and so businesses like yours, and ours, need to begin thinking about what we can do to maximize this time, and prepare for eventually resuming business whether that means ‘as usual’ or not.

One thing that we at Chocolate Diamond Media have begun to do in order to prepare, is started thinking about limited video/photography/editing services right now. A lot of these services might also line up with your own relaunch/rebrand/reopening. Take a look at a list of specifics in order to see if anything clicks with you, but I think you’ll find our offerings help maintain social distancing guidelines at reasonable prices.

  • No contact, <60 second video promoting your business/product. $100

    We’ll discuss what you’re looking for exactly, write up a proposal, and create an easy to accomplish shot-list that you can film on your own, and then we’ll edit them together for you. This will include licensing music in order to make your video more appealing, and capture your audience’s attention.

  • Edit a video compiling pics/existing footage $75

    This one is a little more straight forward, you send us your existing videos and pictures, and we make a cohesive montage, including licensed music.

  • Real Estate Videography $250

    If you’re trying to sell your house, or if you’re a realtor trying to keep moving during all of this, real estate videography can be a good alternative to open houses. Instead of dozens of families walking through your house, I can come in with masks and gloves, film the outside and in with minimal contact (really only doorknobs and light switches), and show the world the home you’re trying to sell. I don’t have a drone, and right now getting a license to operate one for commercial use seems to be a difficult task, but we can still do a thorough job presenting your property in an appealing and professional manner. This video will also include licensed music.

You may notice that Real Estate Videography is not something we’ve been offering previously, we’re really proud to add that to our list, and since the booming real estate in this area seems to be thriving through all of this, we thought that maybe a good work around for people wanting to show their property but not wanting to have to go through the hassle of an open house during a pandemic might appreciate this alternative.

We don’t yet have a sample reel of a real estate video, and that will be taken into account as real estate video clients will only be charged if they want to post the video that we create for them, to ensure that they are satisfied with the quality of the video.


Last week’s post we talked about our entry into Vocal.media and Vimeo’s “Pay It Forward” contest, and if you haven’t already, please check out our entry into it, and let us know what you think about it.
