About Nina Froriep:
Most of the people that start to work with Nina are stuck.
And they work with her because she's not just about the videos. Nina makes sure they know WHY they’re doing video and for WHOM they’re doing video, because:
Video marketing should work for them
·It shouldn’t be unnecessarily stressful
It shouldn’t cost so much that you can’t keep it up
It has to have a positive return on investment
It definitely shouldn’t be something that you do just because you read that you should be doing it on the internet
Some business owners think they can make video marketing work for them with just one or two videos.
Others know they need to produce consistent video content but think they need to shell out tons of cash so they just never get started.
Whatever the reason, they’re not moving forward, and they need a leg up. Nina is that leg.
She's not going to sell a 10-bedroom mansion to someone who needs a studio apartment. Not only can they not afford the mansion itself, but they can’t afford the upkeep.
Nina speaks to the entrepreneur that has a small team and needs video to attract, engage, and convert leads on a daily basis. The trick is to keep the creative aspect of video creation in your pocket.
Don’t get me wrong, Nina loves big expensive videos, for decades she used to produce big expensive videos for Fortune 500 companies, but social media videos today are like a single-use tissue: People watch them once and then toss them out.
You want to focus on delivering value content with those videos, not spend thousands of dollars.
The most effective marketing strategy, not just now but for thousands of years, is just to speak clearly, with confidence and consistently about what you believe.
If you do that then people will listen.
At age seven, she wrote and illustrated my first book. As far as she remembers, the story was about a princess in distress, a knight, and a horse. A modest profit was achieved as the limited and signed edition of ten was sponsored with a parental grant and sold at fifty cents apiece. Today the book remains out of print.
She’s seen it all from the early days on independent features, to big national TV commercials, corporate mega-shows and many documentary films, including one she wrote, directed, and produced about Muslim kids in New York, called Abraham's Children. In short, there’s no film- and video- production scenario she hasn’t taken care of.
Along the journey, she’s met many, many awesomely wonderful people and a few bad-asses. All of them worth great stories.
She’s worked with stars like Sophia Loren, John Malkovich, and Wynton Marsalis, shes interviewed Fortune 500 CEO’s, I’ve worked on Emmy award-winning and Emmy-nominated documentaries, and produced hundreds of videos for uber-corporate shows.
Shes negotiated with teamsters, clients (big and small), actors, crew, children, police officers, a few dogs, and one snake.
On a personal note, shes a sports-nut – the kind that goes outdoors every moment possible.
Central Park is her back yard and she knows (nearly) every inch of it. She's also a certified citizen pruner which affords her the privilege to prune, take care of, and advocate for the city trees of New York.
Shes lived in Harlem for close to 20 years, and since April 2011 I’m a proud owner of an American passport.

Zoe Kennedy is an engineering graduate who followed an IT path into internet marketing where she successfully became a LinkedIn Expert. It wasn’t all plain sailing but Zoe’s passion for snowboarding allowed her to regain focus and pushed her limits further than ever before. It was in the high mountains where everything came into focus. It was here where she felt inspired, free and in complete control of her situation.
From a young age Zoe always wanted to create her own identity and with that comes wealth and success, but for her it was more than that – she wanted to be seen, she wanted to be heard and she wanted to be respected.
Zoe’s battle to overcome her shyness that plagued her since childhood inspired her new book, Go Big or Go Home. “If I can be successful in life and in business then anyone can. It’s all about aligning your goals with your dreams. And the problem is, too many people have too many limiting beliefs and fears that stop them in their tracks. To be successful you have to focus on the right activities and sometimes that means doing things you don’t like, feel uncomfortable with or have no experience of. Once you confront these limiting beliefs and fears you will be in a prime position to achieve your dreams and goals.”
Zoe, Founder of Targeted Leadz has built a very successful B2B marketing company offering specialist lead generation services using the LinkedIn platform. She made her mark in the construction industry where she used LinkedIn to tap into millions of pounds worth of projects.
With this success Zoe launched her first LinkedIn training product in a joint venture with a serial entrepreneur and internet marketer [Matt Bacak]. They successfully hit the top spot receiving ‘Deal of the Day’ on the buying and selling platform [Warrior Plus] where she made 500 sales in the first week alone! After being headhunted to work for a market leading Construction Company in Europe, she became a certified LinkedIn coach and now has clients in multi-sectors.

Building Simple, Easy, & Fun System or Process to Leverage LinkedIn One of the biggest obstacles people find in using LinkedIn Effectively to grow their businesses is not having a “System” or “Process” to Follow. Gym Story - coach developing a workout plan/process vs showing up and wondering after each exercise what I should do next…. Some Questions Submitted: how to tackle LinkedIn without having it take enormous amounts of time and keep track of where each prospect is in the funnel How do I get more leads when I have a full-time job during the day and run multiple side businesses at night? How can I set it up to send an auto-reply when someone accepts my invite to Link? How to outsource and automate the process. Busy professionals, especially those having families, would benefit from having as little hands on as possible. Let’s talk about a framework to follow: Build Your Network Engage The Network Members Educate The Interested Ones Promote What You Do / Make Offers We can dig deeper into each Step and Build a Process for each one. Like a process to “build your network”, a process to “engage your network”, a process to “re-engage your network”...etc Good news, some or all of this can be automated - depending on your goals. If you’d like some help with this reach out to me to schedule a time to chat. fill out a short questionnaire that will help me prepare so you can get the most out of our time together at HammerCommunity.com/session - then we’ll schedule some one - on - one time if it makes sense.
