This creates a wonderful opportunity for social media celebrities to rise to fame and continue creating content. Looking for meaningful projects and partnerships with up and coming social media icons can be a great ticket to a steady stream of videography projects. Almost think about it as growing with the influencer — the better the influencer does, the more demand there is for your videography services if they like partnering with you.
Focusing on the booming on-demand content platforms:
Platforms like Netflix, Disney +, Hulu and even local channels switching to on demand tv and video content are amidst a huge push to develop good quality video content at the right time. Joining the creative chain that supports any of these streaming platforms is a sure shot way to gain videographer projects even if they are creating interviews, social media clips or working with new small scale production houses.

Reviewing tools for the trade:
Sponsorships and requests from companies building tools for videographers may be a great source of earnings as many people turn to learning new crafts. Brands would love to sponsor social media posts and reviews by leading videographers.
