by Elle Werle
Video messaging is the perfect way to communicate within your organization, and beyond. Use Weet to conveniently collaborate, convert, and build camaraderie! Below you’ll find many examples of video messaging ideas to get started!
Video is all around us these days, as I’m sure you’ve noticed.
The benefits of video for business are proven. With video you can:
- Managing remote teams
- Collaborate asynchronously
- Capture and hold attention
- Drive organic website traffic
- …and more!
After many years in Customer Success, I’ve witnessed firsthand the difference that video makes in client and team collaboration. Nothing beats the potent video + screenshare combination for personalization, explanation, and connection.
Video isn’t just for marketing anymore – in our new work world video is the best option we have after meeting in person. Today we can collaborate, sell, get feedback, convert clients, and more with video. With Weet, video is personal, social, collaborative, and secure.
Video Messaging Ideas and Considerations:
- Video has overtaken both blogs and infographics to become the most commonly used format in content marketing.
- 87% of video marketers saw an increase in website traffic due to video.
- 4 out of 5 people will watch a video, while only 1 of 5 will read text on a webpage.
The new age of video is here to stay! Whether it’s for sharing product updates, onboarding new employees, or collaborating with clients, video messaging is all grown up and its adoption is skyrocketing.
Stay ahead of the game with Weet! Your clients and coworkers deserve the fastest, easiest, most convenient and collaborative form of communication. Weet was built with you and all of these things in mind. Try it today!
