Viewstream Project Highlight: October

SOFTWARE

Viewstream Video Engine

Viewstream Video Engine

The Viewstream Video Engine is a simple sales enablement app that delivers high-quality branded video assets, with the ability to mass replicate and personalize at scale. It empowers reps with a simple platform to generate personalized videos and tools to distribute across social and direct channels to extend visibility, reach, and recruitment.

“Your reps need tools that help them stand out in a human way and sell more efficiently. Our goal in developing the video engine was not to create a tool to print a bunch of personalized videos, it was to craft a killer sales enablement platform. We think we’ve done just that. But you be the judge! Live demos are available. Take a peek under the hood today.”

WEBSITE PRODUCT PAGES

Boston Dynamics

Boston Dynamics robot

A spin-off from MIT, Boston Dynamics creates mobile robots, like the popular Spot. As the company grows with GTM activities, the need for website updates, content marketing, and media promotion, is critical. Viewstream simplified and upgraded the creative and editorial for the product pages, as well as created a GTM e-Book and media promotion campaign.

“Boston Dynamics is the most recognized brand in robotics. Viewstream partnered with our clients to help them win in the market through content marketing and expanded media.”

VIDEO

COX Business

The COX IPC Explainer video was a great example of a high tech concept being communicated quickly and compellingly. The goal of the video was to arm the client’s sales force with a tool that could explain, in under 3 minutes, the benefits of the IPC offering and effectively prime the sales conversation. This video is now being duplicated and personalized with each reps contact information to further empower them to sell better.

“Telling the story of high-tech solutions is always a challenge, but this explainer is a great example of when good writing, design, and post-production come together to achieve that goal. It was a pleasure to work on and I’m always happy when our work makes it easier for our clients to bring in business.”

Like most companies the world over, Viewstream was impacted greatly by the COVID-19 crisis. However, we are proud to say that we have risen to the challenge by continuing to produce content that tells the stories of our clients in the most compelling ways possible.

See below for a small sample of the best work that the Viewstream team has produced over the past month.


WEB & BRAND

Helping Adobe’s customers stay connected

Adobe Connect is a software suite used to create and deliver virtual experiences. When Adobe needed an exciting way to promote the launch of Adobe Connect 11, they contacted Viewstream to create five videos detailing the added features and benefits of the new release. Working under a tight deadline, the Viewstream team came together to produce a video series that engages and informs through a combination of motion graphics, screen captures, and VoiceOver.

“Under extremely tight deadlines to deliver five videos for the launch of a major release of Adobe Connect 11, we had to have all aspects of writing, creative, and production 100% aligned. The team came together and worked tirelessly to create exceptional assets that highlight the power and value of this new release. We met our deadlines and exceeded expectations, and another happy client is our best reward.”

Illuminating the high-tech shortage for Sharp Decisions

Sharp Decisions is a consulting firm that provides talent solutions to companies seeking to address their most pressing challenges. In order to celebrate its 30th anniversary, Viewstream was tasked with creating a video that would build anxiety around the high-tech talent shortage while informing viewers about how Sharp Decisions combines diversity, training, and culture to address this scarcity.

“This was a real collaboration between the writing, design, and motion graphic teams. Everybody was involved from the start to make sure every word, every idea would have the proper visual representation. As we got into motion, we altered some of the creative to get to the pace and visual dynamism we were aiming for and get the message across. Icing on the cake: this is for a great cause! And a great business. We were all very proud to work on this!”

DIGITAL MARKETING

Getting life-changing sleep with McRoskey

McRoskey is a San-Francisco based mattress company committed to providing customers with life-changing sleep. For this project, Viewstream was tasked with a unique challenge: develop a landing page and email campaign that would drive customers to their site using a buy one, get one sale on pillows. This campaign not only generated over 130 additional pillow sales but also promoted awareness about the McRoskey line of sleep products.

“From the start of this campaign, there was great concept collaboration from the McRoskey and Viewstream team. We were able to produce an enticing hero image and email promo language that really drove pillow sales. Though we did see a number of sales, the real campaign strategy was to expose the client’s customers to a lower ticket product while still delivering the brand promise of ‘Legendary Service.’”

The future of work was already leading us toward a more remote working culture, a trend that has only been accelerated by the current crisis. While this steady shift to remote working has its benefits, it has also made it harder to stay connected with coworkers, partners, and customers. This is especially true when it comes to virtual events, which are often viewed as lacking the ability to engage and inform in the way that physical events can.

Viewstream Virtual and Online Events provide the opportunity to harness the value of physical interaction within a safe, virtual space that does not require the need for hosts or participants to travel. These virtual events are not simple live streams, but rather custom-branded experiences tailored to your specific use case that have the ability to be engaging and informative in ways that traditional online events can’t match.

Viewstream’s virtual event experience begins with a content blueprint developed based on research into your organization and interviews with employees. Using this blueprint, Viewstream is able to determine the major themes of the event and craft a script that communicates them in the most engaging way possible. Creative elements are then storyboarded and brought to life to convey the desired themes and exemplify the unique style and branding of your organization. Finally, the event is delivered in a live format before being automatically archived and made available for management through a convenient CMS platform.

Viewstream events include a number of features designed to promote security, engagement, and insight. Events are secured through a single sign-on (SSO) system that can be easily integrated with virtually any corporate directory. Q&A/chat modules can be made available to participants and moderated to show only approved content. Live audience polling can also be implemented with the option to show real-time results. During and after the event, your organization will have access to statistics detailing viewership and viewer location, as well as individual viewer tracking functionality.

Viewstream has over 20 years of experience in the virtual events space and is proud to have hosted events for companies such as Microsoft, Adobe, and Autodesk, among others. While nothing can ever truly replace the authenticity of physical interaction, Viewstream’s virtual events provide the next best alternative.

The 2nd B in B2B2C can be called partner producers. They own direct customer relationships and are critical to the success of the first “B”.  Branded video content is an invaluable marketing resource for these partners, helping them to reach their audience, sell more efficiently, and drive growth. Despite the benefits, creating video content personalized to each of your partner producers is often time-consuming. On the other hand, leaving the task to the partner producers themselves can result in low-quality content that negates the desired effect.

The Viewstream Video Engine provides your partner producers with high-quality branded assets that can be mass replicated and personalized at scale. The Video Engine allows your partner producers to take the valuable video content you already have and personalize it with their own photos, contact info, and CTAs.

After logging in, partner producers will see all of the video assets that you have made available for personalization. They can then choose the content they want to personalize, add custom introductions and outro CTAs, and create their new branded video—all in just a few clicks. The video can then be downloaded for distribution or uploaded to social media directly from the Video Engine.

When it comes to branded content, your partner producers shouldn’t be left to their own devices. With access to the Viewstream Video Engine, they’ll have the tools to create high-quality personalized videos that will empower them to sell more.

Ready to help your partner producers drive growth by providing them with high-quality branded content? Contact Viewstream to learn more.

Quality over quantity.

You’ve heard it a thousand times, you’ll hear it a thousand more. But when it comes to content marketing, it’s more than just a banal platitude. It’s the most important factor in setting brands apart, improving engagement and driving revenue.

If you have a network of partners, resellers, or agents creating their own marketing materials, the results can be less than desirable. Low-quality content risks being ignored, or worse, alienating potential audiences. Without the appropriate resources and experience, your network could be producing content that fudges quality standards and fumbles key value propositions. Nobody wants that.

Almost anyone can create content these days. However, not everyone has the proper tools or expertise to create high-quality content that cuts through the noise and makes an impact.

Viewstream Branded Video Service has the skills and resources needed to create high-quality content for your partners, resellers, or agents. Leveraging a fast and efficient algorithmic environment, the Viewstream Branded Video Service produces highly personalized content to make your network’s products and services stand out.

With Viewstream leading the creative process, you can improve the marketing capabilities of your network and foster stronger relationships with partners who lack the experience needed to create effective visual content. Take a look at all of our branded video examples and discover the value that these essential marketing assets can provide.

It’s no secret that video is a key component in any successful marketing strategy. Audiences are inundated with content like never before, and videos possess undeniable advantages when it comes to supplying them with valuable information efficiently, as well as drawing out the responses marketers are looking for. 

  • 1/3 of internet activity is now spent watching videos
  • Average profit per user for video is $8.34, ten times higher than photo ads
  • 4x as many users would rather watch a video about a product than read about it

But between finding the right producer, hiring talent, shooting, and editing, the cost of high-quality videos and time it takes to create them can add up quickly. With the Viewstream Video Engine, your company can cash in on all the benefits of adding video to your marketing materials without any of the complications. 

The Viewstream Video Engine can turn URLs, spreadsheets, or several other sources into custom videos with unmatched turnaround times and cost-effectiveness. Without any production companies, scriptwriting, or filming, we can help your company create any number of professional-quality videos packed with valuable information.

The benefits go beyond the efficient sharing of information. In an age where 93% of online experiences begin with search engines, companies in nearly every industry would be wise to place focus on boosting their rankings for relevant search terms. And while optimizing written can go a long way, implementing video immediately improves load times, boosts rankings and, in turn, brings in more customers.

When search engines crawl your site, they look at more than the words on each page. They also pull keywords from videos and their descriptions for relevance scores and even count video views when checking for content quality. This makes adding video a multi-faceted advantage for marketers who want to put their business on the front page.
