The most important skill for VR professionals is follow up, according to Alex Ruhl, a successful VR creator with her own studio. Find out why from this podcast episode:
In my experience, I have found Alex’s advice to be true. And it is indeed a skill. To be able to follow up with dozens or hundreds of leads requires not only the ability to multitask and to be organized but it also takes persuasiveness, persistence, diligence, and a certain amount of gumption. This skill will have a direct impact on your bottom line.
One of the best podcasts you’ll ever listen to
I met Alex a couple of years ago while she was in town for VRLA, if I recall correctly. I was impressed not only by her experience as a creator but also by her business acumen. Talking to her is like talking to a marketing professor at university whose advice has actually been battle-tested. Don’t take my word for it – even if you just peruse her podcast, you’ll immediately see how valuable it is. If you are even slightly interested in shooting 360 for income, whether full-time or part-time, you owe it to yourself to subscribe to her podcast.
