Town halls and employee training? According to a recent survey by Wainhouse Research, these tried-and-true applications for live online video are quite popular. And these days, hyper-connected businesses are taking one-to-many video further. Much further.
In a survey of more than 1,000 executives, Wainhouse discovered that “employee training” and “executive presentations” top the list in terms of the most common one-to-many video applications, coming in at 51% and 47%, respectively. Take a closer look at other responses that scored 40% or higher and you may find some surprises, including
- Customer service
- Corporate branding and advertising
- IT support
- Product launch
- Trade show presentation
The report goes on to present three case studies — CreativeLive, iStrategyLabs, and This Week in Tech (TWiT.tv) — each of which demonstrates that “live online business video is emerging as a viable alternative for a wide array of corporate communications uses.”
