It makes sense to use video in your business. Video engages people, motivates customers to like and share your online content, boost sales, builds trust, and increases your SEO. Plus, they are fun to create!

In this program, we explore strategies for incorporating this easy to use tool into your marketing strategy.

We will actually demonstrate how easy it is to make a live video with your phone, and free software like Adobe Spark, Lumen 5 and more.

Meet TPPA Member, Marsha Hudson:
I am Marsha Lynn Hudson, and I was born and reared in Houston. I am married to a great guy named Malcolm Hudson. He is my best friend, and we are a photographer and videographer team.

I started my photography business in 2000, and marketed myself as a wedding photography. I literally ran my wedding photography business out of my car, and in a corner at Starbucks in the galleria area of Houston. Today, I have a small boutique studio located in West Houston. In 2016, I began transitioning to real estate, headshot and branding photography. My husband is a Certified FAA-Part 107 Drone Pilot.

I have always enjoyed nature and being outside. My love for photography came from always wanting to be in nature. I studied film photography at Sam Houston State University, but in 2000, I had to learn digital photography. I became a member of PPA and PPGH, and later joined TPPA. These organizations helped to shape me into the professional photographer that I am today.

I am a Professor of English and have been teaching at Wharton County Jr. College since 2000. I enjoy reading, writing and blogging. In 2015, I realized that if I didn’t get on the “social media” train, that I might would get left behind. I became certified to teach social media, and became a social media and branding success coach.

I teach social media classes at University of Houston-Small Business Development Center, at local chambers, for small businesses and individuals.

I enjoy laughing, teaching, traveling and keeping life simple. I also love evening walks and yoga. I can be found most days at a nearby Starbucks, or Barnes & Noble. I get so much of my inspiration with a cup of coffee and a book in my hand. My favorite hometown team is The Houston Rockets.

I am so blessed that I am able to join my love of photography and social media, and help propel business owners to “say yes to success.”
