We tell you in our new blog post, why the use of videos can positively influence the inter company communication.
The press people or the communication editors among us surely know the problem. Things are written like crazy. Besides inhouse news letters and briefings, you also serve perhaps the intranet, you also bother daily to fill articles with informative material or innovative news, but at the end no one ever read it. And everyone persists, that they never, never ever heard about it. Mostly the problem is that the texts are far too overloaded, filled with countless information. Sometimes they are simply not consice enough and do not pull the reader into its spell. Already a bad headline can cause lack of interest.
Videos as solution
How to avoid this problem? By increasingly relying on a mix of different channels and offers. The onset of videos fit particularly well. They offer the prospective quick and easy the needed information and are easy to implement in all company internal channels.
