Esmeralda Gomez Realtor Calbre 01764932

https://www.facebook.com/Esmeralda-Gomez-Realtor-Calbre-01764932-170693909632001/

I can appreciate a professional in any industry but finding a good realtor can be very tricky, especially if you have discerning tastes, know exactly what you want and how you want to be treated.
Esmeralda Gomez helped Nikki and I find the perfect house, guided us through a contentious negotiation and fought hard for us without being too pushy. I honestly can't remember being this impressed with any one professional for a very long time. If you need a good realtor in California, give her a call.

What is RingCental? (ALTERNATE)

https://vimeo.com/390762957

Rarely do we get a chance to incorporate special effects or creature effects in our video productions for clients but we worked with a great one last year who let us do whatever we wanted, so here it is, Ring Central.

This is "What is RingCental? (ALTERNATE)" by Creative Deviants on Vimeo, the home for high quality videos and the people who love them.

MasterClass | Chris Voss Teaches the Art of Negotiation

If you want to sharpen your negotiation skills as well as learn some tactical and very helpful communication techniques, I recommend Chris Voss' Masterclass. Chris was a hostage negotiator turned deal maker in the corporate world and he has developed a simple system of communication for improving the chance that you will get what you want in any negotiation.
Extra points for this class not being a cheesy, self help style up-sell from a totally unqualified nobody. There is nothing more annoying than some a**hole giving you "3 quick steps to improve your life just like me!"
Mr. Voss is a true talent and innovator in the world of negotiation and communication.

Former FBI lead hostage negotiator Chris Voss teaches you his field-tested skills and strategies for negotiating smarter at home, at work, and everywhere in between in his first-ever MasterClass.

How to Start a Video Production Company

Starting any business takes a lot of effort and a little balls, espcially one as crowded and competitive as video production. In this video I share with you some of my methods to stay independent and creative for a living (and it doesnt involve pawning anything.)

How To Make Sure Viewers Love Your Content

"Getting an audience is hard. Sustaining an audience is hard. It demands a consistency of thought, of purpose, and of action over a long period of time."

-Bruce Springsteen

It’s been hard to avoid hearing about all the news stories involving Facebook and user data lately. Every big company uses data to their advantage in one way or another. But there are plenty of opportunities for small business owners to ethically use data for their benefit.  And especially when ...

We work with some amazing clients. Brilliant. Creative. Innovative. We’re always amazed and humbled to be able to work with such great people.

But there’s one question that we have seen clients overlook. In fact, it's one that we overlooked ourselves when we started Creative Deviants. It’s a simple question, but not necessarily an easy one.

That question is: What makes your product or brand unique?

When creating content, it's the most important question you'll need to answer. Many clients have an answer, it just isn’t a compelling answer. Why should people buy whatever it is that you are selling? Why is it better than your competitors?

You know you're awesome. We know you're awesome. It’s everyone else who needs to be reminded, and that is what we do best.

If you know and are ready to start creating content, we’d love to hear from you. If you're not there yet, we can help. Drop us an email and let’s show everyone what makes you above and beyond everyone else.

Eight years ago I stumbled into San Francisco with no clue as to what I was supposed to be doing with myself or my life. When I met Eric Reid Kate Jones Butler Jeremy Mascia Nina Mascia Rob Ready Arlen Ginsburg Christy Crowley & Raymond Hobbs I knew we had a great setup for some "office style" comedy and I still think, after 8 years, that this is really funny. I loved working with you guys! Here's the Piano Fight! Cheers! P.S. Where are the other videos in this series?!
Keep up the awesome work!
