Fair warning, I promised you this would be a brief introduction, but to keep it brief. I will resort to that presentation no-no, reading from the slides. Honestly, we will move through this quickly so we can get the guys you came to see up here as quickly as we can. So the Sexton team met with Bolster a few months ago to begin planning this session. I that point I asked Jon and Jesse and Jason, what can I do to properly set the stage for your presentation. They said, it would be great if people understood what a a big deal web video is. So, mustering all of my marketing genius and creative moxy, I am very happy to say that I decided to call this portion of the presentation….Web video is a big deal.
I believe decided the best way to gain an understanding of how big a deal web video is would be to begin with a property that we all are aware of….. You tube.
Now when numbers get to be this big, I don’t know about you, but they tend to make my eyes glaze over and I loose comprehension of what that means, so here are a few illustrations to give you an idea of the enormity of these developments.
Many others believe that web video is a big deal as well…. The Neilson group reports that…..
Networking giant Cisco reported this last year….
And a recent observation by the High Performance Business management consulting group Accenture…
… These developments have had a significant impact across a broad spectrum of ecommerce
This from comscore, the digital measurement authority….
And from internet retailer…
… Search engine optimization every has been turned on it’s ear by the power of webvideo
That well-respected reseaech company forrester found that…
… Email has seen the impact as well
Implex, the Internet marketing firm study found….
And webvideos impact is not limited to B to C.
Forbes in their Video in the C-Suite research found that…
Forbes insight found…
Finally, also from Forrester…Dr. James McQuivey said..way back in 2002…
So what I am trying to say is that…. I would now like to turn the mic over to the Bolster creative Team of Jon Thompson and Jesse Roessler. Jon Thompson who will be joining Jesse up here shortly is the Experience Director at Bolster Jon’s rich design and development background has given him insightful perspectives on visitor experience and usability. His communication and play-focused approach to projects help him bring engaging and award-winning experiences to life in a number of different mediums. Which brings us to Jesse Roessle Jesse is the Chief Story Director at Bolster As an Emmy Award-winning filmmaker, Jesse brings a unique and powerful perspective to the world of brand engagement. His work as a visual storyteller has helped a wide range of Fortune 500 clients as well as non-profit organizations make deep and powerful emotional connections with their followers. Please join me in welcoming Jesse Roessler.
That’s it. I know it was brief so for more informtion contact your Sexton Representaive. A this point I would ask that the Sexton team distribute our survey. I would like to call Jesse and Jon back up for the QandA. Joining them will be Jason Hammond, brand Director at Bolster and Jeff Stoks from Sexton.
