Ah, you’ve pointed out my own fatal flaw in my own site.
Yeah, after I set up the initial site design, I pretty much left it there, without doing any search engine optimization at all. Honestly, it’s probably a good thing, because right now I’ve already got more than enough business to keep my busy. I keep telling myself that when I get time, I’ll fix that, but I rarely have free time, it would seem!
I do agree that websites are a totally different beast than videography. However, both are technical trades that rely on computers. If you can do either one, you’re going to have to have mastered PC basics at some point. So while you do have to learn a whole new trade to do one or the other, my assumption is that it would be easier for a videographer who uses PC’s every day to learn web dev than, say, an accountant who doesn’t need a computer for their job, but they do own a 386 running DOS 4 for word processing.
Most professional fields are either left brain or right brain jobs. Videography and web development are two places where you have to use both, which is why I think that it would be easier for one of these tradesmen to learn the other trade than it would be for many other positions.
Anyway, enough of that. I’ve got weddings to edit! 😛
