How can SCV small businesses support each other? SchlickArt offers one win-win strategy you probably don’t even know about.
If you hang around SchlickArt Photography & Video long enough, there’s one particular phrase you’re bound to hear throughout the studio.
A rising tide raises all ships.
Simple yet powerful, this core belief has inspired Brian and Lindsay Schlick since the days when their company was just an idea.
They knew that, if they were going to achieve the kind of meaningful success they aspired to, they couldn’t do it alone.
And they didn’t want to.
In fact, part of the reason they wanted to start SchlickArt in the first place was to help empower people – even in simple ways:
Feeling good in front of the camera for the first time.
Loving the way you look.
Remembering your value.
Knowing your worth.
Learning to share that with other people.
To the Schlicks, running a business was a two-way street, a way to give and receive support in the community they call home.
If they were going to ride the tides of business ownership, they would do everything within their power to make sure that tide supported others as much as themselves.
That’s how this simple adage became a vital core value at SchlickArt Studios, and it eventually shaped one of SchlickArt’s most business-friendly services.
How SCV Small Businesses Can Support Each Other At SchlickArt
At SchlickArt, we believe we offer an incredible opportunity to support other SCV small businesses, while also supporting your own.
Why? The whole idea of our favorite core value – a rising tide raises all ships – is to create mutually supportive relationships. We want to create success together, to reach levels of success that couldn’t be achieved alone.
A SchlickArt Video Podcast Sponsorship is one powerful way to do that in the SCV.
What’s A Video Podcast?
Our SchlickArt Video Podcast Production service is designed to help local small businesses reach more people with their message.
By listening to their vision, we help them craft a show format, clear voice, and marketing strategy – so that each business can reach their ideal target audience. Then we take care of every aspect of production and branding, to ensure success every step of the way.
The final product is a video podcast series that’s delivered in two formats: video and audio.
That’s a SchlickArt Video Podcast.
What’s A Video Podcast Sponsor?
As a SchlickArt Video Podcast Sponsor, you are invited to record a customized commercial that includes all the SchlickArt perks you expect – from a professional set and full editing services to marketing and messaging guidance.
You also receive your commercial in two formats: video and audio.
That means, with SchlickArt, you get two appearances per episode … instead of one.
Your sponsorship includes:
- Your Sponsor Commercial in a Video File
- Your Sponsor Commercial in an Audio File
- Advertising Appearances in a SchlickArt Produced Podcast
- Professional Editing Services
- Time in the SchlickArt Recording Studio
- A SchlickArt On-Set Producer
- One Revision to Make it Perfect!
What Are The Benefits?
In addition to supporting another SCV small business, you get the added benefits that come with a highly targeted marketing opportunity. Here’s how a SchlickArt Video Podcast Sponsorship supports you, too:
1. It’s yours to keep.
As a sponsor, your commercial runs in each episode that you sponsor, but you also get a copy of your commercial to keep and use for your own marketing. In fact, it’s yours to use however you want.
“I recorded my commercial with SchlickArt,” said Amanda Benson-Tilch, host of The Ask Amanda Show, “and now my video commercial lives on my website, too. It explains who I am, how my business works, and what I can offer. It’s perfect for my home page. That’s what I love about being a sponsor on a SchlickArt Video Podcast.”
2. There’s a format for everyone.
Since you receive your commercial in both video and audio formats, you can use it for marketing on all channels: YouTube, social media, radio, TV and more.
That way, your audience can consume your commercial the way they like best.
“Some people are very visual, and they want to watch their content. Some people are auditory learners, and they want to listen. Other people want to read,” Amanda explained. “With a SchlickArt Video Podcast, I’m creating content in multiple formats – so people can consume it the way they like.”
3. Reach the right people.
One of the biggest benefits of marketing your business through a podcast or video show is the exposure you’re getting to such a highly targeted audience.
“You see, each podcast has a specific target audience – a group of like-minded people who love to consume your content,” explained Lindsay, co-owner of SchlickArt Photography & Video. “For example, Amanda’s audience is made up of mostly local small business owners, entrepreneurs and professionals. If your ideal customers are in the local business community, then this podcast is a sure bet – because that’s exactly who’s listening to The Ask Amanda Show. We are getting you in front of the correct target audience for your business.”
Amanda added: “Your commercial is attached to a specific audience that you may not have been in front of before. That is huge. And that’s the whole point!”
4. It lives forever.
Your sponsor commercial isn’t a one-time advertisement or networking event. And it doesn’t have an expiration date. In fact, it grows over time.
“Once you post it, that video and audio content will be evergreen, which means it will live forever on that platform,” Lindsay explained. “It will also live forever inside of the particular video podcast episodes you sponsor. Over time, more and more people will find those episodes, and your marketing will continue to get stronger.”
5. We’re here to help.
In addition to everything that’s included in your sponsorship, this is also a SchlickArt experience. That means we give you everything you need to succeed when you come to shoot your commercial, and we also help provide the tools and resources you need to be successful after you leave our studio.
“Remember, we’re here to coach you through the whole process. We can help with everything from scripting and wardrobe to finding the right target audience to receive your message,” Lindsay explained. “With the help of SchlickArt and the passion of our video podcast hosts, your sponsorship is designed to help you reach a new, high-quality audience through an authentic and engaging platform.”

About SchlickArt Photography and Video
SchlickArt, a boutique photo and video studio in Santa Clarita, started in March 2012 with the simple idea that empowerment creates a kind of beauty and authenticity that shines through every camera lens. Built on a philosophy — rather than a product, service or person — SchlickArt has rapidly evolved, meeting professional portraiture, business photo and business video needs as diverse as the community we capture. It’s the desire to take care of you, the client, that drives us at SchlickArt.
