Featured Studio Owner
Home Video Studio - Mooresville
Bob Madden is a numbers guy who has spent most of his 30-year career in finance consulting for several Fortune 500 companies. Today, as a new Home Video Studio owner, Bob is still crunching numbers, but it's to improve his own business' bottom line. He decided to start a second career to pursue his creative interest in computer graphics and animation through video.
He's proud to brag a little that his studio's monthly spreadsheet continues to add more figures to his sales column. Bob was installed in November 2007 and with less than a year under his belt; he won a Hanley Award at Getaway 8 in Walt Disney World in August for Most Improved studio owner.
This North Carolina studio owner says most of his customers find out about him through the Yellow Pages or the Internet. His colorful SUV vehicle wrap - that was also nominated for a Hanley Award in the That's A Wrap category - is also drawing attention.
"My projects have run the gamut of photo keepsakes, video production, and even a lot of audio transfers lately," says Bob, who admits that his biggest challenge is finding the time to do the marketing necessary to grow his studio sales figures even higher.
But he's determined to do more marketing efforts. This month, for instance, he is attending two expo trade shows and plans on meeting with several larger video production companies to become referral partners. Bob is planting a variety of seeds in his area that he hopes will soon come to harvest.
"I hardly pass anyone anymore without handing them my business card," adds Bob. "I even put my cards in with my bank deposits."
He is also a visionary. Bob doesn't want to own just one studio. His ultimate goal is to have at least 5 or 6 more Home Video Studios located throughout his state. He figures it's just a numbers game.
Best wishes, Bob, on achieving your dreams. You're off to a great start!

Here's what we'll cover at Show 'N Tell Saturday.
The number one thing we'll cover is making money in the video business. I'll cover pricing video as well as collecting the money. What's the difference between a $500.00 video and a $5000.00 video? Are you leaving money on the table? I'll teach you how we do it! Oh... what about a $30,000.00 video?
ADVERTISING & MARKETING
This is the great unknown for most people who attempt to enter our industry. How do you get business and find clients? I'll share with you.
TRAINING & SUPPORT
I'll cover our 12 month and 21 day in person training program in depth. How do we take you from where you are now to where you want to be? We are very good at this as long as you can take that first step and get to Show 'N Tell!
You'll be in my studio all day so we'll definitely get into the nitty gritty on equipment and gear. How will you outfit your studio? Do you have current equipment that can be used? Maybe and if so that will save you some money.
Home Video Studio is a short cut to success. You may be looking for both financial success and creative achievements - money in the bank and an Oscar! We make no promises except to put you in an environment with others who have the same vision. Our mission is to help you achieve success as you define it.
Not everyone is out to make a fortune. Home Video Studio is a very fun and exciting business and lifestyle. Want to turn your hobby into a real live functioning studio? We can do that for you. Want to get your family involved in the business? We'll help train them. This is a very family friendly business.
We'll discuss transitions and getting started. Going to quit your job? Come out of retirement? Convert a 401k? Will you work the studio part time until you can go full time? We will start designing a plan for you at Show 'N Tell Saturday.
We are experts in funding and financing. If you need us to help you find the money we would be happy to. It is easy to convert a 401k or IRA with zero penalty. Many people do a refi or a home equity loan. There are other avenues as well. One of the things we do on Saturday afternoon is cover financing. It's not that difficult. If you need consultation on funding call us.
We suggest you bring your spouse/partner to our Show 'N Tell Saturday. That's our treat. You'll know a whole lot more about running a Home Video Studio by end of day on Saturday!
Show 'N Tell: A first glimpse
"Tammy and I came to a Show 'N Tell Saturday. The initial conversation was Robert talking about what it is to be a Home Video studio Owner. Of course we'd listened to the CD's over and over in our car for a couple of months. I think Then we had the presentation and we signed right there at the end of the presentation."

"Our Show 'N Tell Saturday was on May 11, 2002 - Mother's Day weekend! We were already operating our own video business, but we wanted to run it at a higher level with better equipment. We needed a plan and a system like the one offered by Home Video Studio. If you're thinking about HVS, you should go to Show 'N Tell Saturday."
