Dear Reader,

We know that word of mouth recommendation is a great way to expand your business. But wouldn't it be even better if visitors to your website could actually meet you and hear you talk about your services or products?

This month we're going to focus on how we can help you attract more visitors to your site, enabling it to stand out from the competition. And with so many sites out there, you need to get your message across and turn those visitors into customers. We'll show you an innovative way you can do just that – read on to find out more!

Don't forget we love getting your feedback, so please email me and let me know what you think of See View and your ideas for future issues.

Best wishes and good luck with your Christmas preparations.


Be Eye Catching With I-Catcher

With only an hour of your time, you could have a stunning one-minute I-Catcher video portrait that will showcase you or another key person in your company. Why only a minute? In our soundbite world, people are rarely prepared to take in more than a minute, so we say engage them, don't bore them.

Anyone can make an I-Catcher – it's fast, it's easy and it's very effective.

You'll spend the first 30 minutes with our voice and performance coach, who'll put you at ease, and train you to perform in front of the camera. The second 30 minutes will be spent recording your I-Catcher. And that's it! We edit your video and present you with a one-minute clip which is yours to use as you wish.

We don't use scripts and we don't use professional presenters. We use YOU. Your passion and enthusiasm are what sells your business to your customers. They'll say ‘now there's someone I can work with; s/he's so passionate about their work'. We'll make sure you look and sound your best, by using flattering daylight balance lighting and superb sound. And we can also advise on clothes, hair and makeup to really give you the edge.

For £400, you'll get your I-Catcher on disk in three file formats so you can use it on your website, on a mobile device and even on a DVD player. The choice is yours – and so is the copyright.

I Can’t Go On Video Because… I Don’t Have The Self-Confidence

When you make your video with us, you'll have all the support you need. We specialise in relaxing you and giving you techniques to control your nerves. We'll record you talking to an interviewer, not a camera, so it's just like having a conversation with a friend.

Many of our clients leave the studio walking on air, their self-confidence boosted and feeling that they've increased their presentation skills.

So not only do you get a great video and a highly effective marketing tool, you'll also have gained some expertise in performance!

You think you won't like the result? Well maybe you won't: we humans have a great ability to pick at our own image until we convince ourselves that it's horrible when it isn't. All we say is, don't trust your own judgement – show the result to others, family, friends and partner. If they don't like it, we'll refund your money.

Have a look at some I-Catchers on our website and see for yourself how effective they are!

Coming Soon…

We have I-Catcher days lined up regularly at locations around the Thames Valley. The next one is on 10 December in Windsor, Berks. We make appointments throughout the day – and remember it's only one hour of your time.

If you'd like to book an appointment or find out more about how we can capture your personality on video, please ring me, Gillian Gee at Oceanwake, on 07751 622482, or drop me an email.
