We are excited to be offering TALKING BUSINESS CARDS at Jules Portrait. In this technical world we all work in, staying up to date will make you look good not to mention make money for your business. This is a combination of still pictures and videos done in a short clip to show potential clients who you are. Now they can be played from printed material such as newspaper ads, flyers, business cards and websites. See blow for more information.
Wow, I want one, how can I make this?
We have several groups of cards to choose from, starting with a simple video with a short script up to a more complex video with various pictures (moving & still) and music. We can help you prepare your script or you can write your own. All the TBC should be kept short like 15-60 seconds. Jules can take your opening headshot and create the video or you can add up to 5 of your own images and a short video, if they are of high quality. Of course practicing your lines will ensure this process to move along quickly, but we are very patient and will make you feel comfortable as we realize this is something you normally do not do.
What can I do with this?
Once your TBC is finished, it takes about 2-3 weeks to produce. You can embed it in your emails, website, share in on social media or just send people your link. Once your client or potential client views your card they can add you as a contact or call you (if viewing on their phone), replay it, all with a simple click of a button!
How much time will I need?
To take your executive head shot picture allow 15 minutes. To record your video I would allow an hour because we are not actors! So all together allow 90 minutes and if you would like to have professional makeup done before that normally takes 45 minutes prior. We want to make sure your project looks clean & perfect because we want you to attract great clients!
This is a must!!! Professional Hosting and/or LivePortrait Sharing
This is what everyone is talking about, LivePortrait sharing! Take your talking business card and then watch it be played directly from your printed picture, say on a business card, newspaper/magazine ad or even your website. The client just has to have the free downloaded LivePortrait app on their smartphone and like magic, your business card comes to life! Imagine a potential client reading a magazine or newspaper on the patio, taking their phone, scanning the app at your printed picture and then seeing your video! Wow is what everyone is saying! 3 years of hosting this feature is also included in our price. This is great for real estate, insurance, doctors, car dealers, models, resumes, plumbers, really for any profession, it will make a statement!
