  • OPEN WITH Short VIDEO – REMOVING THE BARRIERS BETWEEN SPACE AND TIME (2 mins)(Click on black box to play video)To give you some context to what I mean by social video, here is a short video about video.We asked experts in technology and human behaviour for their views on how our world will be shaped and how our lives will be changed by what technology enables us to do.Video includes some facts and figures about video34% of global workforce will be mobile information workers by 2012Sound & vision is 92% of face to face communication1 in 3 knowledge workers use social media daily for their jobBy 2013, web access worldwide will be dominated by mobile phonesThe Top 10 jobs today didn’t exist in 2004In 2013, 90% of traffic on networks will be video.
  • Why is video such a powerful medium?First of all, sight is our most dominant sense: Of the 5 senses, our visual sense is thought to provide the largest proportion of the information we receive about the world. 75% of a person’s sensory input is Sight.Visual messages are also retained 5x more than verbal messages.
  • It is no wonder then that video is such a powerful communications tool for marketers.With proper optimization, video increases the chance of a front-page Google result by 53x. (Forrester, January 2010)A minute of video is worth 1.8 million words according to Dr. James McQuivey of Forrester Research. (Forrester, January 2009)Video in email marketing has been shown to increase click-through rates by over 96%.

  • Video descends from the long human tradition of storytelling, we are all storytellers, by nature, and we all love to hear stories. With video and social media, story-telling can be so much more effective. (a minute of video = 1.8 million words)Video also brings personal and human elements into the virtual world, enriching it immensely.
