Take A Chance TV

If A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words, Then A Video Is PRICELESS.

A website without a video is a one dimensional laundry list. Simply a menu of who you are and what you do. Would you rather look at a few pictures of your family holiday or watch a video of your loved ones opening their gifts. A site with a video is an experience to welcome customers into your world. A video has an 86% retention rate higher than still images and text.

Chance combines his global experiences in investment banking and media – interviewing A-List celebrities, politicians, socialites – and formulated a digital way to strategically grow your business through a personalized interview tailored to you and your industry.

Your video establishes an instant relationship with potential clients. They feel you are talking to them and putting on an exclusive private presentation of who you are and what you do. The visual medium creates an instantly and easily marketable competitive advantage over photos, print, and even word-of-mouth. In today's global digital world the utilization of video is no longer a luxury but a necessity. Visit: http://www.takeachance.tv/
