Leverage Video Across Your Entire Organization

Video can be used in a multitude of ways across many business functions because it’s proven to be one of the most effective mediums for communication. Here is the ultimate guide to implementing video throughout your organization to improve collaboration and efficiency, and the KPIs to track for your results as well.

Share Corporate Video Securely

Corporate video is one of the best ways to communicate with large, dispersed teams. It enables people to stay coordinated and well-informed about the goings-on within the company. It’s especially important for big announcements, times of change, or on-boarding new team members.

The main sticking point for using video for internal communications, and one we hear about all the time at SproutVideo, is that online video is perceived as being extremely public – that once you post a video online, anyone could search for it, watch it, or share it.

That perception needs to change. To help with that, we are going to cover the five steps you need to take to ensure only designated people can view your videos. We’ll also cover how to track viewer interactions with your videos very closely to boot.

Inbound Marketing Funnel

Video isn’t a one-size fits all for your inbound marketing funnel. Many companies make the mistake of thinking video is a magic bullet, that they only need one, or that it’s just a box they should check. Those same companies likely wind up wondering why video didn’t make much of a difference in their marketing efforts.

In order for video to be truly impactful for inbound marketing, your videos should be aligned with the specific aims you are seeking to achieve at each stage in the buying decision process, as well as your overall marketing strategy. Here is a breakdown of the four different types of videos you can use to nudge potential customers along, and tricks for making yours compelling.
