Forty years ago, the vast majority (83%) of a business’s market value was invested in tangible assets such as currency, equipment, land, and other property. Today, 84% of the market value of a business comes directly from its people:
their knowledge and skills
the services they provide
the products they build
the intellectual property they create
People represent the greatest investment and the largest expense of most organizations. Leaders must find and develop and retain the people they need, lead those people through the inevitable tough times that arise, and build an organization that is diverse and ready to meet the constant changes and challenges of the 21st Century. This is what keeps your CEO awake at night.
To be effective, today’s leaders must communicate effectively with the people they lead. No matter the worker’s age, education, or role within the organization, the more they know about the organization’s strategy, challenges, values, culture, and other attributes, the more engaged they are and the more they can contribute. Even more importantly, the more they WANT to contribute.
As companies look for ways to create more impactful content, many are realizing that text alone is no longer enough. Audiences crave a more engaging experience that they can enjoy and share with their peers. Smart marketers are realizing that video enables them to create that experience in a way that builds lasting relationships, generates new leads and grows their bottom line.
Did you know that 80 percent of Internet users watched an online video within the last 30 days — and that 46 percent of them took some action after viewing the video? What would that do for your company’s lead generation efforts?
And while on-demand video has become a staple on the Internet, live video offers the added benefits of real-time interaction. To build the most effective strategy possible, you need to leverage both.
