VIDEO: “1 For What?” Co-Producer Compensation Explained.

Yesterday I blogged about how impor-tant-e video is to all current and future marketing.  If you want your message out there, if you want people to learn from what you’re doing, then you best get into the YouTube space.  You don’t have to do it exclusively, but you better start shooting some stuff, and uploading it to the 2nd largest search engine on the web.

And then I thought . . . well shoot . . . I better listen to the guy who wrote that blog!

So I shot a video!

One of the questions I receive over and over, is how Producers get paid.  Those questions led to this original blog.

But during my last Broadway Investing 101 Seminar, one of the participants asked how Co-Producers (not Lead Producers) or Bundlers, Aggregators (people who raise money for other people, and get their name above-the-title) get paid.

That answer is a bit more complicated.

And involves math.

Since my High School AP Calculus Teacher always made me “show my work,” I decided to answer this question . . . and show my work to you on video!

And so, it is with great pleasure that I announce the first ever Producer’s Perspective Video Blog:  “1 for What?”
