Join us and Hero Media Network on how to Tell your Story - The highlight of any small business website is the About Us page. It’s where the artist or entrepreneur tells their audience the “why” they do what they do, the motivation behind the madness. A hero video captures that emotion, along with beautiful imagery, to create a uniquely effective and authentic message.
