Hollywood will help to become rich!
Dear fellow entrepreneurs! You are one of those who make our world better, and much of the good that surrounds us today, was born only because of your dreams, work and perseverance. And it deserves respect. And I will be happy if the following will help some of you become even more successful. Over 20 years of working in business, I have implemented more than 12 interesting business projects. Each time it was something new, which at that moment was not yet on the market and each subsequent project was more interesting and larger than the previous one. As much as I remember, I always chose a new business not through logical thinking, but as they say - with my heart. Perhaps this is the main reason for the success of all my companies. To achieve high results is easy enough if you like what you do. Then, instead of tedious work, it becomes an interesting game that delivers a lot of fun. The feeling that arises in me, at the sight of a decent product, or when a great business idea suddenly comes along, seems like the excitement and excitement that a player feels before a big exciting game. That is the feeling I have now. After all, today a unique, new product for the CIS market has been found and a great exciting game related to this product begins. I'll tell you how it all happened. This is an interesting story!
Last year, ending the sale of two of my companies, I was intensely looking for what to do next. I couldn’t imagine my life without a new game, so I was actively searching. Starting the search for a new business, I usually try to imagine what I want and how this business should be, I formulate and write everything out as clearly as possible. Good method, try it. It allows you to better understand yourself and not to rush from side to side during the search, as well as to avoid unpleasant mistakes, loss of time and money. That's what I did this time. So I saw my next business:
• The product is very interesting, it has a bright novelty, it attracts a lot of attention. This is not yet in the CIS countries and the market in this area is empty.
• Business profitability is high , capital investment pays off quickly (within 5-8 months). You do not need to create your own production, buy machinery, build workshops, investing a lot of money in it.
• Promotion and business management does not require a large number of employees.
• The market is already prepared, and this product is accepted by them quickly and easily.
• The business associated with this product allows other people to participate as independent partners. They can earn well and be 1st in the market of their region.
• Business and product allows a lot of creativity, it can be constantly developed, improved, released new versions, etc.
As you can see, the picture was quite clear. The search was active, and there were a lot of options, but none of them fit my description; there was always something important missing. Frankly, I was starting to worry. Really, I think, the crisis of the genre has come? The situation was resolved completely unexpectedly, during a small tour of the United States which I made with friends. The trip program was intense. It included participation in a large business conference, various get-togethers and meetings, as well as visits to many cities and interesting places, including Los Angeles, Hollywood, and the world-famous “little movie universe” - Universal Studios. It was there in her territory, practically in the heart of Hollywood, that I saw the subject of my today's story, at that moment still hidden behind the backs of a large crowd of laughing people.
Curious about what causes such violent emotions there, my friends and I began to break through and, approaching the crowd's attention, we saw a pretty compact mini-studio in which two teenagers of about 15 were sitting on round chairs. Both of them had bright green capes tied around their necks. It all looked unusual and looked like a show. The people around the studio smiled broadly, and the teenagers, all in anticipation, did not take their eyes off the video camera aimed at them. There was a general anticipation of something unusual and very interesting in the air. The camcorder image was broadcast on a large monitor, on which I have not yet seen anything outstanding except the smiling faces of the same two guys. And here the cheerful music began to play loudly, the teenagers began to smile even wider, and looking at the camera they began to actively move their heads, to make faces and to sing along. There were explosions of laughter around! I strained my eyes with all my might, but, however, I couldn’t figure out what everyone was laughing at, even starting to get angry. And then, looking from the teenagers to the monitor, I just could not believe my eyes, seeing on the screen all the same two guys, but already in the form of tough macho, nicely dressed and professionally dancing to the Latin American hit. Directly in front of the whole audience, these teenagers sitting on the chairs in some incredible way were transformed, and suddenly they turned out to be the protagonists of the amazingly funny music video with alternating plots. It was something! Having finished the shooting, the young men got up, approached the studio operator and received DVDs in a beautiful bright package. As I learned later, their star debut was recorded on the disks.
The following who cheerfully walked to the chairs in the studio were an old lady of about 65 and her companion a little older. They chose the composition of their future video (there were more than 40 variants) and a few minutes later everyone saw the same old woman on the big screen but with a chic bust and slender legs, lighting up the popular hit of Elvis Presley. Nearby she danced her grandfather in a chic tuxedo. The people around were just crying with laughter! In the meantime, wholly seized by the spectacle, I began to estimate in my mind the prospects for this business, well aware that the topic was excellent, and in the CIS countries there was nothing like that. And when I mentally looked through all the items on my list and compared them with what I see in front of me, I just caught my breath. I realized that here it is - what I was looking for. Of course, my friends and I also took a line, paid $ 20 each for the recording, and soon wiping tears of laughter from our eyes, we received video clips with our participation. Later, I probably 100 times showed the clip to my friends and acquaintances, carefully watching their reaction. Each viewing was accompanied by friendly laughter and the questions “Where can this be done?”
The decision to engage in this business was made without the slightest hesitation. The circle of potential customers was obvious. I reasoned like this ... In any place where there is a stream of people, interest in such a studio will be huge, it is a fact. But there is one subtle point - you need to somehow be able to preserve the exclusivity of this incredibly bright product that attracts so much attention and causes so many positive emotions in people. Therefore, it is important that in no case should it be easily accessible, and not offered at every corner to everyone, but served only in “special” cases. Then it will be in the hat. I did not have to break my head for a long time, the decision was obvious. In any of the cities, hundreds of different “special” events occur every day - holidays and corporate events, weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, parties, festivals, discoveries of new restaurants, shops, clubs, etc. Movement is unreal! Each organizer wants to delight his guests, to impress them, to surprise everyone with something, to stand out ... but with novelties, something is too tight. And here is a show! Yes, at any of these events, guests from this studio just break.
Returning home with such thoughts, I immediately contacted the developer and manufacturer of this product - DH Recordings, and received confirmation from them of my thoughts: the studios are really very popular on holidays and various events in the USA, Canada, England and many other countries of the world. Even more inspired, I continued to communicate with representatives of the company, but unexpectedly I ran into a serious barrier. It turns out that the studio was not so easy to buy, and they were not sold to everyone. The reason was simple. The company, as well-known in many countries, is a Hollywood brand whose clients are world-famous stars such as Paris Hilton, Hugh Laurie (Dr. House), David and Victoria Beckham, Hugh Hefner and many, many others, thoughtful of their reputation, and took under their banner is not everyone. With time I even liked this approach. But, I think, the exclusivity of the product is maintained, and that's great. I will not stay long in this place, I will only say that negotiations with DH Recordings were not easy. Fortunately, I had enough business merit, including before the American industry, so after a while my request was approved. As it turned out later, this was the first and only approved request from a multitude of previously received from the territory of the CIS countries. Hooray! I was able to purchase the first ten studios. Probably, the child is not waiting for Santa Claus's New Year with gifts, as I was waiting for my studios. Having received the goods from the customs, I could hardly bear it until the technical specialists collected and set up one of them. And finally, everything was ready, the music began to play, and I again experienced the magic of becoming a pop star!))
Work has begun. We quickly made a presentation of the Hollywood novelty, set the cost of renting a studio with an operator from $ 400 to $ 1,500 (depending on the time of its work, the day of the week, etc.) and launched the promotion flywheel. The very first event (VIP party of the company Mary Kay) for which the studio was booked confirmed all my calculations. Despite the fact that VIP party guests saw a lot in their lives - it was a sensation! Guest reviews and organizers were enthusiastic, and the studio was the highlight of the entire program. During the month we served a few more parties, birthdays, and various presentations. Rumors spread quickly and the number of requests from customers grew by leaps and bounds. Otherwise, it could not be because every guest of the event, where the studio worked, left with such a gift, which then necessarily showed to all his relatives, acquaintances and friends.
The attractiveness of the Hollywood brand immediately manifested itself in great interest to us from serious customers and the media. We did not have time to blink an eye, as at many of the VIP events held by real stars of the market and show business, the public increasingly began to see our studios: at a party organized by the hotel Yalta Intourist, as a gift to guests at the party of the famous travel company ”(At which we worked before and after the closed concert of Ani Lorak), at the morning show of the XIT FM radio station, at the sensational boxing show of the Klitschko Brothers Company - K2, etc. Already in the second month of work, our revenues increased threefold, and none of the company's employees were even surprised when planning 4 or 5 studios for a day to work at several events at once.
Only a few months have passed since the start, and the feeling is that for a few years, everything was so full of events. Today, our company is the exclusive distributor of DH Recordings in the CIS and Baltic countries, and now we have the opportunity to connect partners in various regions to our business, as you remember, and was provided for in paragraph 5 of my plan. The principle is the same - not all can get under the brand flags, the company's requirements are high and the selection is tough. First of all, applications from candidates with work experience and connections in the event business or areas close to it (advertising, restaurant, exhibitions, concerts, shows, etc.) are considered. But in any case, we will be sincerely looking forward to working with creative and successful people who deserve the reputation, attention and respect that this business brings to their owners. Such people will share the CIS market among themselves, and we will be happy to help them in their work, pass on successful experience and knowledge, and provide technical support. So, if you like and like the bright interesting game in which you and your business will be the center of attention, feel free to contact and send your application to the company's mail: email@example.com
