Chris O'Falt and Sarah Colvin:  "IndieWire examines how much money, crew, time and equipment it took to shoot the 34 Competition Pilots that screened in Denver. [....] What we learned was that shooting an indie pilot is not terribly different than shooting the micro-budget features that find their way to film festivals."

Some applicable steps for any onboarding/welcome process

Karen Dietz's curator insight, August 19, 2014 8:31 PM

This article comes from the land of software adoption -- you know -- buying a program or app and then learning how to use it.


Some companies really suck at these instructions or "onboarding" as they say in the tech world. Some are great at it. I'm sure we've all wanted to tear our hair out in frustration when this process does not go well. Yeah, like I'm supposed to read what's in software genius' head so I can use the !$%*&#! product.


So imagine my delight when reading this article about how to use stories to understand what the user (that's me) needs to know and do for a successful software experience. 


But wait! I realized that this post applies to almost ANY business and its products. Hooray -- we can all use the tips, advice, and insights presented here.


I only have one part to nit-pick about -- the section on how to evoke stories from customers. The method they suggest will only get you thoughts and opinions -- NOT STORIES. So use solid story prompts to get the work done: "Tell me about the time when..." "Tell me what happened when..." "Tell me about the time you were most frustrated..." "Tell me about the experience that led you to..."


I do agree when the author says to keep digging into the stories to find rock bottom motivations and causes that led a customer to your product.


If you need good reasons and practical steps to dig into your customer's experience to grow your business, then read this. 


And many thanks to colleague Debra Askanase @askdebra for recommending this article to me. Good find Debra!

And let’s not forget YouTube, the second largest search engine in the world (after Google, of course). The ability of videos to increase user engagement is unsurpassed.


According to YouTube’s statistics page, they get over 800 million unique visitors each month, users view more than 4 billion hours of video each month and upload 72 hours of video every minute. That’s a lot of potential for your video....
