    i was thinking about starting a small home buisness based on video. i thought about a few options, and i came up with a plan to make certain videos for small buisnesses. i would make:

    -product introducion videos
    -company introduction videos
    -product demo videos
    -employee training videos
    -advertisments

    what steps have to be made to start a buisness? are there any other additions to that list that could work?

    question 1 would be where do u live? alot of corps around that would demand such a thing?

    Also do you have experience in Camera, Editing, Lighting, Technology (slide shows and etc.)

    I would suggest hitting the forums over at these sites and doing some searching and reading.
    dvinfo.net (especially the "taking care of business" forum near the bottom)
    creativecow.net
    2-pop.com

    Also hit up your local library and/or bookstore and read up on starting a small business. And like illegalprelude said your location (and the saturation of your market) makes a huge difference. If you are the only person in your area offering to make training videos you might have a niche to build on. But if there are 5 other companies already making training videos how will you convince clients to go w/the new go as opposed to someone more established?
