Gideon Shalwick loves helping entrepreneurs get their message out to large, global audiences using the power of video. His company, Splasheo.com, makes it easy to create super engaging videos, ready for social media domination. We’ve been following Gideon’s career over the years, have even crossed paths, and in this episode we chat about his amazing tool.
We also get into various ways to repurpose your videos, the different social media platforms to post them on, the social media platforms that are getting the most bang for your buck and how to actually be better when you are on video. Gideon opens up about how he and his wife were able to start a new life, leaving their jobs and moving to a new country, how he was able to get to a point where he was working online fulltime and all the ups and downs of such a journey. He also talks about the benefits of partnerships and the key elements to connect with your audience so they stop scrolling and pay attention to you.
Once you’ve listened to all the possibilities with making videos, be sure to check out our episodes with Brian G. Johnson on how to start a profitable channel from scratch and our show with Sunny Lenarduzzi on creating a thriving brand using video content.
