In this episode of the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast, I interview Augie Johnston. Augie is a 35-year-old ex-YouTuber, former professional basketball player, turned entrepreneur. He is currently making waves in the video editing industry with a start-up called Vidchops.
Video is an incredibly powerful medium that helps you build authority in your niche and connect with your audience with your message on a personal level. But… is video right for your business?
The short answer is yes. In this episode, Augie Johnston talks with me about how businesses of all sizes can start using video effectively and ways to use video in your content strategy.
