The #1 Reason to Consider Video Content For Your Marketing

There’s nothing fishy about it:

  • The average attention span of a goldfish is nine seconds.
  • The average attention span of a typical American is about eight seconds — and falling fast.

Why Use Video Content?

Goldfish3 Because of the incredible explosion of content, and data, and digital distractions on multiple devices over the past decade.

It’s a fact: It’s harder than ever to hold attention.  It’s sort of like swimming upstream.

But there IS good news: Video is a powerful weapon for brands to hold consumer attention.

The facts do not lie.

The trend lines are unmistakable in both B2C and B2B marketing.Read More

How Four Top Publishers Use Facebook for Video

Facebook video usage has skyrocketed over the past year, which makes it particularly attractive for publishers given what seems to be ever-shrinking organic reach with other types of posts.

According to figures recently released by the social network, Facebook users are seeing nearly 4 times more video in their feeds compared to one year ago. That’s a steady 1 billion video views every day for the network. Crucially, chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg said during a an earnings call last month that over 65 percent of videos are watched on mobile devices.

As online video continues to rise in importance for the modern media company, I spoke to a handful of top publishers to collect some best practices for using video on Facebook, and to better understand what might be at risk.Read More

Reap These 3 Publisher Benefits From Computer-Aided Video Production

Creating studio-quality, original video content has always been difficult, slow, and expensive. The process hasn’t changed for decades, and publishers of all sizes struggle to find ways to be successful with original video content — but most fail.

Albert Einstein once said that insanity is “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” This is exactly what happens for publishers who create original video content. They hire graphic designers, video editors, sound engineers, and more. They license more software and media, build bigger studios — you get the point. They mirror others and fail. Insane, isn’t it?

Einstein also said, “We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.” To be successful with original video content, publishers must first acknowledge that traditional ways of video creation just don’t work anymore, then apply disruptive thinking to solve the problem.

Across so many industries, technologies that combine man-machine solutions have reshaped the progression of how we work. One great example is the automobile industry. Can you imagine an automobile production line operating without men and machines working in unison?

The same is happening in the video production industry. I call it computer-aided video production (CAVP). New, disruptive technologies bring men and machines together to automate the process of video creation, leaving creativity in the hands of humans. These technologies change the rules of the game, opening new horizons with original video content.Read More

With media licences at major news agencies and an in-browser editor, the ‘video creation platform and content hub’ could make journalists’ lives a lot easier

Garrett Goodman is excited about Wochit. As the director of sales and business development at the online video company this is hardly surprising but, (disclosure) having known Goodman for some time before his recent appointment, the honest enthusiasm is palpable.

“When they showed me I couldn’t believe it,” he said of the founders and the software firm’s product in a call with Journalism.co.uk to demo the video creation platform which can turn a text-based story into a video in a matter of minutes. “I couldn’t believe that something like this existed.”

Such eulogising aside, it is difficult to deny the potential for news organisations that Wochit can provide.Read More
