  • I think this cartoon pretty much sums it up in case you didn’t know traditional VNRs is something that doesn’t work anymore. You can do them but you are really throwing away your $It’s important to get your story out with technologies and distributions that best work. Today’s savvy PR and Marketing professional use a different type of video news release to reach buyers directly. While many marketing and PR people understand what video news releases are in it’s traditional sense, very few understand the implications for how they must dramatically alter their video news releases or broadcast strategy in order to maximize the effectiveness of their videos directly to consumer. In essence the broadcast media has been disintermediated. The World Wide Web has changed the rules and buyers watch your video directly and you need to be speaking their language. I am not suggesting that broadcast media relations is no longer important, however, television reach must be part of an overall communications strategy. In some organizations, broadcast press remain critically important and of course, Television still derives some of its content from B-roll and less and less from VNR’s. Video is no longer just a handful of television stations. Now your audience is millions and millions of people with computers and internet connections to search engines, social media websites and RSS readers and out of home networks, mobile phones and more. It’s important to note that while we embrace the ‘new and improved’ we also incorporate traditional methods of notification and delivery to ensure the broadest reach.New technologies provides a very fast and cost-effective means for companies to move video around the world.
  • Ask your self yourself the following 7 questions:1) Typically in a companies message they want to sellStock, Image, Product SurveyBuilding games, contests, creating special sections on sites are even producing their own web TV. 2) Is it B to B or B to C, is the message for teens, young adults or woman ages 35-40, or people who have sweaty palms3) Online video provides opportunity to interact with audience directly.4) Do you have an in-house production team?5) Production is relatively inexpensive now.6) Reports, call to a 800 number. 7) On the web, TV, cell phones, movies, airplanes.
  • In-Text messaging works via ContentLinks which are contextually relevant keywords discovered in real time on a publisher’s web page that are automatically turned into a link to the most relevant information for the user on the web. Linked keyword allow the user to view video from an MNR - a video window pops up automatically with topic that is relevant to articleCost per click (Like Google Ads)Guaranteed distribution for MNRs via In-Text messagingA user will see video from a Multimedia News Release play automatically on the website, generating thousands of video impressions. Once the video is clicked on, the user will be taken directly to the MNR where they can view more information and relevant links. This distribution network will guarantee hits to the MNR and will deliver video impressions beyond the reach of natural search.Example of In-Text…Be “IN” the Discussion, Not Around ItCapture Readers Immersed in Content They Care AboutUser-Initiated View, Audience Self SelectsMessage Viewed as Extension of Content on the Page
