You'll get professional level video training that you can easily implement in your home or office.

Your competitors are doing all the things in the list below. Wouldn't it be nice if you could do all of them FAST with little to no expense?

Use Video to:

  • Drive Free Traffic to your website from YouTube
  • Get engagement and drive traffic from Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter and other social media.
  • Welcome visitors to your homepage.
  • Put at the top of sales pages for those who don't want to read.
  • Act as complete sales promos themselves.
  • Create Products either as DVD's, or locked on membership pages.
  • Train employees.
  • Train your customers (as in how to use your product).
  • Sell Affiliate products (this has made me a fortune)
  • Produce Fantastic Speaker demos that will WOW! the meeting planners.
  • Enhance live speeches from stage where you use them in addition to, or in place of PowerPoint.

DAY 1:

Morning VideoShoot: Arrival from your hotel at [7:45] AM. With starting time [8:00] AM.

In addition to all the video, equipment and lighting training that we'll do in the evening, each person will have a full hour to shoot traffic driving videos, welcome-to-my-website videos, and instructional videos. You will be coached in advance of your visit on content, style, shooting formulas, and wardrobe.

We will edit the videos and send them to you usually within two weeks. We can put your website, phone number, graphics etc. on your videos and coach you on getting them on your website and YouTube.

Note: The cost for just one of these videos on the open market is between $700.00 and $1500.00 dollars . . . and that's if you can even find a studio where you live. Try this in Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami or New York and you'd be looking at $3000.00 to $6000.00 bucks and you'd get zero training included.

The last one-on-one attendee that was here got 25 studio videos done (the record is 43) and I don't even know how many he got done on the location videos from day two.

You will also observe the other attendees which is a learning experience in itself.

Lunch: Working lunch with Tom at the Retreat Center.

Afternoon Classes: 1. Video Marketing – You will learn a ton of tips to take advantage of the enormous amount of traffic you could get from YouTube.

2. Video in Social Media Discover all the ways both paid and free you can use your videos and other people's videos on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and more. HATE BEING ON CAMERA?  . . . ALWAYS HAVE A BAD HAIR DAY? HAHAHA . . .You'll also learn how to make a fortune with screen capture video where they hear you, but don't see you..

3. Basic Video Editing –  I've never been in favor of businesspeople learning video editing. For high level results it really takes a professional who does it every day. HOWEVER, it's ridiculous for you to pay a fortune, wait weeks, and miss opportunities because you can't do simple things either on your cell phone or laptop. In this session you'll learn how to:

  • Do extremely simple edits on your phone or tablet.
  • Get video off your phone or tablet into your laptop/computer for “real” editing. (Mac users already have Imovie. PC people will need to purchase the cheapest version of ‘Vegas')
  • Put in text.
  • Make Lower Thirds (Text and graphic across the bottom of the screen.)
  • Make Transitions between scenes
  • Put in a still Photo or Graphic These simple skills can make you and save you thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours waiting around for a video editor to overcharge you for them.

Note: The editing training may be delivered over zoom with you one-on-one when you get home and want to work on the footage you shot in the field on day two.

Dinner: Working dinner with Tom

Barbara Cookson Testimonial

Take a look at this video made by Barbara Cookson, AKA “The Super Hero Speaker”. She had very little experience before the Video Weekend and knocked it out of the park with this production. Yes, YOU can do the same thing!


Potential customers love to know something about the people they do business with. In this formula type video you'll show something about yourself, transition to presenting your product or service, and end with more of your lifestyle. This simple technique has made me literally millions of dollars over the years. . . . You'll learn how to do it on Day 2.

Check out the example “lifestyle” video below. No, it's not perfect, but it brought in a boatload of money with just my cell phone, a selfie stick (mini monopod), a couple of dogs, a three-day beard and ten minutes of editing AND ZERO DELAY AND ZERO COST


I'm well known for never leaving my clients stuck. After you go home and work with the techniques you will undoubtedly have additional questions. For idea critiques, lighting, etc. you will talk to me. For technical glitches, uploading help, reminders on how to do stuff, etc. you will talk to my full time video guy Marc.


I'll critique a video for you and give you a written analysis of it from both the technical perspective and creative perspective.

All this for only $997.00 when in a small group which includes pre-arrival consultation, 2 lunches, 1 dinner, post event consultation, video critique, and editing of the videos we shoot of you in our studio. Note: People are loving  PayPal credit where you have six months to pay with no interest (see banner below)

When you leave my retreat center you'll know more about creating and marketing with video than 99 percent of your competitors who I've seen spend thousands on what you'll be able to do for FREE. – THAT WILL TRULY GIVE YOU THE COMPETITIVE EDGE

And you'll end up with high quality, edited videos ready to put on your website and/or load up to video hosting sites like YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and Vimeo. PLUS, you'll have tons of usable footage you shot yourself.

Our next public small group event is not until the fall of 2020. You don't want to wait that long.


Put together a group of 4 paid participants and you come FREE. Maybe you want to be benevolent and spread out your free attendance fee among your friends so you all pay a reduced rate. It's up to you. You'll have to call to arrange this deal with me.

We can accommodate your group any time myself, my video people and social media people are available.

Video Weekend with Greg Williams

As if you needed more of a reason to join us, here's a video that will give you a “feel” for what a video weekend with us is all about. Greg Williams, The Master Negotiator, came, played, and went home with valuable knowledge and experience that he can use to grow his business. So, watch this video then ask yourself, “What am I waiting for? Tom ain't got all day! 🙂
