Indeed, what is the difference?  In fact, why is eLearning, upon whatever platform, brain-based?  I submit because it's enjoyable, and also easy, and accessible, and interesting.  The cell phone is a hook whose very "handy"ness adds charm to the learning process, and, thus, engagement.

You probably took great care in choosing the actors, voice-over artists, and presenters to make your video successful, but to really get the most out of videos you have to start with a great script.

 

As an actress, voice-over artist, presenter, and copywriter I have a unique perspective. While some scripts are truly brilliant, many are overly complicated, jargon-heavy, or simply try to do too much.

Industry: IT SecurityContent: Blogs, infographics, whitepapers, video animation, social mediaHighlights: 172% increase in blog traffic


Demonstrating value and building brand  authority online isn’t always about selling – it’s also about your willingness (and ability) to share your expertise with those who are simply browsing. One of the most common problems faced by our IT clients – among others – is the difficulty of conveying the complex value of their offerings. This is a challenge that’s well served by educational content.

When potential buyers at the top of the funnel move further in the buying process, will they remember your company as an educational resource? If yes, they’ll work their way from blog pages over to product and services landing pages (which are critical to lead generation in B2B tech.)

An educational approach is exactly the strategy our client in the IT security space took.  Here’s their story...
