About This Course

Published 9/2015 English

Course Description

This course was designed for two types of people:

a) You're a video marketer who wants to spend less of your time in the edit suite

b) You're an entrepreneur who has shot videos, or who wants to start using video, but who do not know how to edit or how to make the most of that process.

In order to successfully grow your business, you have to remove yourself from some of the "technician" tasks (tasks like filmmaking, editing, etc). Editing happens to be the easiest place to start.

This course was broken down into concise pieces so you can make the most of your learning in about an hour and a half. I've used this exact same process I'm about to share with you so I could find video editors and expand my video production team. The result of learning this process of hiring online has allowed me to successfully manage $32,000 across multiple projects, in less than 60 days this past summer.

Why you need this course:

- I'm going to save you time by giving you the EXACT formula to use in your job postings, so you can magnetically attract your ideal editor.

- I'll also show you how to shortlist your applicants, and how to really make sure the person you hire is a winner.

- You'll get a bonus interview with my Go-To editor (I found her through Elance), where she shares what it's like on the other side of a job posting, as well as tips you can use to make sure your outsourced video editor can get your work done on time, efficiently, and on budget!


This course is currently priced at $97.

Refund Policy:

Udemy offers a 30 day money back guarantee! Take the course, at no risk to yourself, and if you find it's just not for you, or you don't learn how to magnetically attract a professional video editor, you can get your money back within 30 days!

No screwing around.

No funny business.

What are the requirements?

  • If you already create videos for a living (or part time), then you'll need a project ready to test using an editor on
  • If you're a business owner who isn't shooting with a professional team, you should have some footage or a video project in mind to work on!
  • You will need an internet connection, and a free account on Upwork (formerly known as Elance). I'll show you how to get started if you're new to it!
  • Software You Can Use (BUT DON'T NEED): Skype (Video / Audio calls - FREE), WhatsApp (Phone - text messenging via WiFi - FREE)

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Hire video editors so you can free up your time as an entrepreneur!
  • Learn how to write the copy for compelling job postings, so you can attract the best talent
  • Learn how to navigate the entire Upwork system, so you can get your projects outsourced immediately

Who is the target audience?

  • Producers who want to hire a new team member, without breaking the bank of your video project!
  • Business owners or entrepreneurs who don't know how to edit videos - why waste your time learning when you can be making money and getting new clients for your business?
  • If you're a "one man show" (or "one woman show") and are feeling overwhelmed with all the roles you have to fill for a project.
  • Video makers who want to handle more projects, so you can earn more without doing all the labour!
  • You should NOT take this course if you're obsessed with doing it all yourself!

What you get with this course?

Not for you? No problem.
30 day money back guarantee.

Forever yours.

Instructor Biography

Marcus Rideout, Visual Storyteller & Marketing Coach

Hi there! My name is Marcus and I grow businesses with online marketing.

As a major video enthusiast (with over 10 years of experience in the field), I specialize in teaching people how to harness the power of "relational" marketing so you can create authentic relationships with new leads. At the end of the day, by being seen in front of the market, you will grow your business online.

I also help people learn what it takes to scale their marketing and business efforts (while keeping "automation" personal and human).

In my spare time, you can find me cycling and enjoying the outdoors. I'm a lover of sunshine, the ocean, surfing, & cars.
