All, I'm researching a blog post I am working on for the RMGP site.  The first time I saw a pro I didn't ask him anything before agreeing to take lessons.  The second time I asked one or 2 questions.  Now I think I'd ask even more.  Did you interview your pro?  What did you want to know first? And did your Pro resist answering any questions you may have had?

You can check YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, etc... If they don't have before and after high speed videos, I'm already wary. It's the 2010s dammit, it's so cheap to have an online presence.

No question, but the folks who aren't on the top 100 lists (even if they are awesome) are not exactly rolling in the dough, and may not have experience with such things or know who to go to.  Its why there are about 5 companies out there trying to become the "website builder" for all golf pro's presence.

I respectfully disagree. It costs $200 to get an entry level high speed camera. $10 for a tripod. $5 for a memory card. Everyone has a computer. It costs nothing to open a Twitter, FB and YT account. If you don't have internet access, you can go to Starbucks or a local library. You don't need a website. If you're smart enough to figure out the swing, I think you should be smart enough to figure this tech out.

If you want a website, I've built very professional looking websites for people w/side businesses pro bono and they pay less than $100/year to keep the sites/domain name going. It took me on average 2-4 hours to build each and I'm doing it while watching TV. There are services that let people who don't know anything about building websites, build websites, like Squarespace for one.
