HOW DID I GET INVOLVED WITH YOUTUBE?
Bob watched as his two teenage daughters tuned in to watch various "YouTubers" daily vlogs (Daily video logs) on YouTube every day. Neither of Bob's two young daughters were remotely interested in working in the trades and while Bob wanted to share his knowledge with his children, he knew they, like most people, wouldn't want to learn until they needed to learn.
Bob began uploading videos to YouTube that would hopefully be called upon by his daughters after he was either too old to teach them or after he already departed this fine Earth. What better way to share his knowledge and live on for them than by using the very technology that they seemed to enjoy so much.
Today I do it for more reasons; sure my girls will benefit from these videos for their entire life, but I also share my knowledge with anyone on the internet and truly try to help them. I've had many people message me just to say thank you for my video in their time of need.
HOW IT HELPS:
A video of your projects provides you with up close video of your project as it unfolds. You get to see close up shots of the work being performed as well as any trouble we ran into and how we overcame it.
Sharing knowledge with others without monetary compensation is just a nice thing to do.
We know a lot of clients like to watch a contractor perform their work. This is something just about every contractor frowns down upon, and here's why:
* Their is added risk involved when a non-employee is present in the work area.
* Most general liability insurance companies do not want the client in the work area.
* If we are distracted by a client we could get injured, but at the very least, it could cause us to make an error, or at the very least, your project may take longer, costing you more money!
If we produce a video of your project, none of the above can happen and you get to see close up shots of your project as it unfolds; often you get to experience clips which are much closer than you would have even gotten, just watching from a distance.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE BEFORE THE VIDEO IS RELEASED?
It really depends on the amount of videos we have pending, how busy we are and what amount of time we have to produce the video; the longest wait time to date was two months and the fastest was as little as a few days.
DO WE LOSE MONEY DOING THIS?
Yes, of course some revenue is lost by sharing knowledge freely, but there are plenty of people out there that either do not want to do the work themselves or do not have the necessary tools or skillset. DIYing isn't for everyone, but hey, at least Bob gives you an idea of what to expect and what's involved. How many contractors make videos so you can watch your project as it unfolds? I assure you, only contractors that keep things honest because cameras do not lie.
DO WE RECORD EVERYTHING?
No, we do not, however, if you want us to record your job and it's something that we feel would be a good addition to our channel and possibly help someone, we will definitely consider it. Not all video requests will be honored because sometimes we do not have the time and the amount of time it takes to edit a video ranges anywhere from 8 to 15 hours per video, which Bob does on his own time after work, a little bit each night. Videos are determined on an individual basis.
AM I GUARANTEED A VIDEO?
No. Even if you request your project to be video recorded we are under no obligation to record your project, make a video from your project files or even keep the video files. Video files are the sole property of Bob and Bob's Home Services, LLC and will not be shared in any form or format other than what we produce and release. Due to storage limitations we delete most videos from our server once they are produced or abandoned.
We have received a Super Service Award from Angie's List every single year since 2016
That's an accomplishment !
We share our knowledge for FREE in hopes that it helps someone, somewhere when they are in their time of need.
