Real Profiles Campaign

This campaign is designed to support small business owners. Where most videographers charge $1K/minute just for recording video, the cost for this campaign includes not only drawing clients out in an authentic way, but also the marketing of that content on Aspen Real Life media channels.

In just four days this “Real Profiles” interview with a client brought over 1.5K views on FB, Insta, Twitter, the blog and Youtube, and she procured 4 large bookings.
