2. Visual Marketing Presentation
Marketing requires so much content these days. While professional photos and videos are always ideal, sometimes it’s just not in the budget to shoot every piece of content with a professional. However, you still want your images to look as professional as possible, right?
That’s why we put together the SchlickArt Visual Marketing Presentation, a free mini-workshop that provides visual marketing education to local professionals. As a way to give back to the community, we travel to you to offer this complimentary presentation to Santa Clarita businesses. (Please note that, if your business is located outside of Santa Clarita, a travel fee may apply.)
The purpose of this presentation is to gather your entire team in one room and go over the basics of being on camera, as well as using the camera for visual marketing purposes. Basically, we teach you how to create as close to professional photography and video as possible with just your smartphone, including: how to present yourself on camera, how to curate a visually appealing online presence, and how to set up your shot for the best photos and video – all with just your smartphone. We even include a few affordable equipment recommendations to make life easier.
When it comes to marketing your business, there’s enough to stress about without having to worry about what you look like on camera or how you’re going to create better visuals. Our goal for this presentation is to teach you the basics, so you feel comfortable creating content on your own – without wasting your time and money.
3. Visual Marketing Video Series
Are you interested in our Visual Marketing Presentation – but you’d rather learn online, at your own pace? We created the Visual Marketing Video Series just for you.
Without leaving the comfort of your home or office, this series will teach you how to use your smartphone to create professional, engaging visual marketing by yourself from home. Learn how to look good on camera, find the best lighting, compose a strong shot, script an engaging message, and tons more! We cover everything you need to create marketing photography and video you love from the comfort of your home.
If you love learning through video tutorials, then we highly suggest checking out SchlickArtTV, a video series designed to share our top tips on photography and video for small businesses and professionals.

BONUS: The Ask Amanda Show
Every day, small business owners and entrepreneurs spend most of their time putting out fires, solving problems, and asking themselves questions like: How do I brand this? How do I reach more people online? Why can’t I break through my revenue ceiling and reach the next level in business?
If you own a business or are building a personal brand, then you know it can often feel like you’re an island – holding it all together without the support, clarity or feedback you need to achieve your vision.
That’s exactly why Amanda Benson-Tilch created The Ask Amanda Show, a video podcast produced by SchlickArt Studios. As a small business consultant, not only does Amanda have the answers to those burning questions, but she’s also created a digital community of experts that remind you: You’re not alone in this journey.
Join the community by tuning in on Apple Podcasts or YouTube. You’ll get access to small business experts, nuggets of inspiration and answers to the difficult questions preventing you from growth. Enjoy powerful guest interviews as Santa Clarita small business experts share their stories and provide actionable steps to help you grow.
Whether you’re a business owner, aspiring entrepreneur or someone looking to get more involved in your community, this is your show!
