    Ok so what exactly do you do for a living (if you don’t mind me asking;)

    I can’t really imagine you are making a bunch of money from SEO services unless you have been doing it for 10+ years…

    @AJones413 I think it could look fine.

    great vid. also what would you think if i did an infinite white background like you and place a table in front so i can do some good product reviews. would that work. and when i talk straight to the camera, is it ok if i put a chair in front of the white screen. or would that not look professional.
