VANCOUVER, CANADA — (Nov 19, 2020) Moovly Media Inc. (TSX VENTURE: MVY) (OTC: MVVYF) (FRANKFURT: 0PV2) (“Moovly” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce added functionality to Moovly’s popular video creation and distribution platform with new automated audio transcription and text translation tools using Google and Amazon based AI.

Moovly’s over 3 million international users create videos to engage audiences in many languages and countries. Keywords and subtitles can enhance the intelligibility of video content for their viewers. In most video creation tools on the market today, translating text and adding subtitles content are time-intensive, manual tasks. Moovly’s new audio transcription feature lets users automatically convert spoken soundtracks to subtitles. With this new feature, Moovly can not only automatically create subtitles but also translate them and other video content into any language.

Moovly CTO Geert Coppens explained that “with a simple mouse click, Moovly users are now able to convert voice content to subtitle text. The Amazon-based transcription engine listens to the video and puts it in writing for the user. Likewise, Moovly’s AI has embedded Google Translate so users can automatically translate their videos.” 

“These new features further illustrate Moovly’s commitment to democratize expensive or expert-level features,” said Moovly CEO Brendon Grunewald, “and making them available to everyone interested in video creation for business, education or personal purposes.”

With a growing number of corporate customers, Moovly has been rated the #1 “Impressive Online Video Maker” and is a leader in dynamic and persuasive video creation.

Moovly helps education and corporate clients to easily  convert slides to video via PowerPoint import

VANCOUVER, CANADA — (October 22, 2020) Moovly Media Inc. (TSX VENTURE: MVY) (OTC: MVVYF) (FRANKFURT: 0PV2) (“Moovly” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has introduced a time saving wizard whereby PowerPoint presentations can be imported into Moovly’s editor and easily converted to video.

Educators and corporations have vast quantities of stories and content made  in PowerPoint. Converting this slides based content to a new engaging format like a video or video presentation is tedious as it typically means recreating that content from scratch in a video editor. Moovly’s new feature allows users to kickstart this conversion by uploading their PowerPoint presentation into Moovly. The wizard-based process imports all elements from their slide deck and lets the user choose presets such as music and animations.

Once imported, users can further fine-tune and enhance their content, add voice and animations, and save it as an attractive video or an online video presentation.

To try it out, visit: https://www.moovly.com/moovly-for-powerpoint

Geert Coppens, CTO, commented: “This feature is particularly important for our growing number of education and corporate clients, who seek to migrate their many PowerPoint-based stories, courses or presentations to a new more engaging video format without the hassle of having to recreate them from scratch. This is yet again an example of Moovly developing features that are meaningful to our clients, increasing our value to them and our competitive position.”

Living in the modern world means being exposed to gigabytes of information every day. Our society is forced to live at a fast tempo, constantly making decisions which we may not even notice. A common choice spotted by marketers is that more and more people prefer consuming information through videos rather than from written pieces. As companies constantly adjust to trends, tendencies, and innovations, video marketing becomes more and more powerful. So, making videos part of your marketing strategy can be crucial to success if you are just starting your business.

Developing a video marketing strategy on a limited budget

Startups are usually very limited in budget. When a new company is born, it faces a few common problems:

  • High competition
  • Limited budget
  • Unstable financial results
  • Low brand awareness

Because of these difficulties, many startups are forced to put aside their prepared marketing strategy and wait until a “more suitable time” comes along. Most of the time, they start with something more affordable and effective such as email or SMS marketing, social media marketing, etc.

However, even if you have a limited budget (which startups usually have), you can still start working towards developing your video marketing strategy according to the specifics of your business, your niche, and the strategy of your competitors. This way, you will be able to solve many difficulties regarding low traffic or poor brand awareness. Just follow the easy steps listed below.

1. Create a plan

Videos are a great way to boost your brand awareness and reach greater financial results. Marketing is not something that should only be implemented when you have extra money. Plan your budget and try different tools instead in order to understand what gives you the best return on investment. Of course, spending your monthly budget only on video marketing would be the wrong decision. In the case with startups, planning does the trick. Surely this is quite common advice, but it really works – always plan your marketing strategy before taking any action.

When planning your future video marketing strategy, it’s essential to be realistic about your expectations. Even though videos are a highly effective form of communication, they are not magic. Moreover, it requires effort to prepare and create a highly engaging and relevant piece of content. That’s why you should:

  • Think of how many videos you can create per month (with your team or with the help of an outsourced service)
  • Think of how you will promote your videos and whether you will use paid promotions
  • Think of the platforms that you will use to play your videos and consider the specifics of these platforms
  • Define your goals and track your achievements.

Only by creating a plan and establishing the goals that you plan to achieve can you find the most suitable scheme for your business. Make your plan, knowing you will adjust it in the future according to the results that you get.

2. Conduct research

Your competitors might be the ones whom you should look at to understand what you can do with your marketing strategies. For example, find out if they have YouTube channels or if they use short videos to promote their products and services on Instagram.

You can also see if there is an adequate reaction and audience engagement. What mistakes do your competitors make when creating their videos? How can you do better than them?

3. Know your audience

You can also find out the main trends among your target audience regarding video content. Pay attention to the demographics of your target audience and consider the platforms and content formats they prefer. Of course, in order to do that you should create a buyer persona firstFor example, the latest stats show us that Facebook is used mainly by an urban population aged 18-29 (81% of people of this age use it) and 30-49 (78%). If your buyer persona matches these categories, you can dive deeper into creating videos oriented towards the Facebook audience.

You also should consider the stage of a sales funnel that you create your videos for. For example, for the visitors who don’t know anything about your brand yet, educational and entertaining videos will work the best (how-to videos, tips and advice, etc.). As they might be just surfing the Internet in order to find information that they need, there is no sense in creating videos focused on sales – they just won’t work on people who are not ready to buy from you. Upload such videos on your landing pages, in blog posts (to break long chunks of text), and place them on specialized platforms.

While moving through the sales funnel, your visitors become your leads and customers. They need to know more about you and the products or services that you offer in order to be ready to make a purchase from you. Videos that are more focused on your products (product reviews and comparisons, client testimonials, in-depth guides, etc.), as well as other branded videos (event videos, expert interviews, case studies, etc.) will help them decide if they want to buy your product.

4. Analyze different options

Nowadays, it’s hard to imagine any type of work that you wouldn’t be able to outsource. Many freelancers and creative agencies offer their services in the content creation field, and video production is no different. Here is what Francis Grant, a senior marketing specialist of EssayTigers, says about cooperation with video creators,

“We don’t produce many videos, so we don’t actually need to have a whole department that will be specialized in creating them. However, sometimes we need to launch a video or a few of them, for example, dedicated to our new promotion. In this case, we cooperate with a little team we found on the Internet. They are very creative, fun and painstaking, so we don’t have to worry about the quality of their work. The best advice when picking a video creator – make sure to provide a detailed explanation of what you want to receive. Then just look at the final result. If it is better than you expected – then you have found the right specialist.”

Finally, if your budget is very tight, you can try creating videos yourself. Many startup teams have to learn to be a jack of all trades, from business development to marketing. You can also try using a tool like Moovly to create your videos.  With Moovly you will have access to many templates, animations and over 1,000,000 free images, videos and sounds. You can really achieve great results even if you don’t have any experience in creating videos.

5. Start creating videos

You will never know how to do something properly until you try. Even if you don’t have experience in filming, you can always learn how to create videos like a pro or hire a real one. Create a schedule for the next month considering your budget and the number of videos that you can afford to make (including expenses on promotions).

Let’s say it will be two videos per month. Then you need to brainstorm topics and the rough concept. For example, it might be a narrated guide if you promote learning courses. You can speak through the video about the advantages of your course and its why people should sign-up.

Now, when you have an idea for a video in your head, you can start creating a description or script of it in order to provide your outsourced specialist with a detailed task. Write down how long you want a video to be, any exact words that have to be included, etc. Even if you are going to create a video yourself, you will still find the notes that you have prepared beforehand useful, as you will avoid missing put on some important details. 

6. Promote your videos

Sometimes advertisement costs can hurt your budget even more than the price of producing the video itself. However, any marketer will tell you that creating a video is just the beginning of a complicated process of video marketing development. You can promote and advertise your videos in a few ways:

1. Optimize your videos for search engines

SEO is an essential part of brand promotion, including a video sphere. SEO helps a lot when it comes to understanding the needs of your potential customer and their preferences while positioning your brand and showing your work to the people who might be interested in it. In the case of videos, keywords and meta-data work the best – let Google know what your videos are about and who they are for in order to be the best match for the search queries of your potential customers. Give your video a correct and SEO-friendly title – limit it to 60 characters and use one keyword, but put it there naturally. Provide a description up to 1,000 characters and add keywords and tags. If you can add a transcript to your video, you will increase your audience and your chances of positioning higher in search results.

2. Use social media platforms to promote your videos

Posting videos on one platform only and not sharing information about it on your business account on Instagram or Facebook isn’t the right way to develop your video marketing strategy. Integrating videos into your social media marketing strategy is a very effective tactic that helps show your content to larger audiences, making it more shareable, and develops an effective strategy of spreading brand awareness. You can even go a step further and add a sticky video to your website.

3. Use paid promotions

You don’t need to have a large budget to promote your video. You can determine your campaign budget yourself according to your monthly plan, you’ll be surprised with the exposure you can get with even a small budget. What types of paid advertising are there? Many. There is a paid advertisement in Google Ads, so you can promote your channel on YouTube by paying for actual views. You can also integrate videos into your Facebook campaigns, collaborate with influencers, or use videos for native advertising.

Conclusion

Every startup goes through the stage when every cost and expense should be well considered because of a very limited budget. Video marketing is something that you should definitely try even if (or it’s better to say “especially if”) you are just starting your business. Create a plan, pick the right creator for your content (or become one), and promote your videos through various platforms – you will see how effective video marketing is.

Video Content: A Must-Try Tool To Surcharge Employee Engagement

Employees are, undebatably, the backbone of a company; one that will keep a company stand tall against the biggest challenges if you nurture it, or cripple it down paring the revenues to the bone when left overlooked. Who would have thought that the disengaged employees can cause U.S. companies to lose $550 billion a year? But, how will companies get engaged and passionate employees?

Do they need to reel in new employees on high wages as an attempt to keep the employee motivated from day one? Or should they invest in the present employees and offer them perks like free lunches, transportations, and indoor games to develop a sense of motivation and loyalty? Impressive payscales and perks do make the staff happier and keep the retention rate high, but they alone would not do much to keep everyone engaged. In fact, half of the employees are eager to sacrifice as much as 29% of their salary to get a job they enjoy, as stated by recent research commissioned by Kforce. Employees get frustrated at the office when feeling that the work they do daily is not worth doing. This explains why they then start to think negative about their workplace or just do their bare minimum to get through the day or why heavy paychecks and grilled steak burritos at the lunch have more of their attention than the company progress. 

So what should one do to turn a grumpy employee into a motivated, diehard advocate of the company who calls in sick less, believe in what s/he has been doing, and don’t think about quitting. The answer is simple: connect with the employees, keep them away from distractions, and most importantly, make them aware of the company’s internal communications. 

Employees of this era face more potential distractions at their workplace than any previous generation.  According to the “2018 Workplace Distraction Report”, 70% of employees feel distracted at their workplace. To counter this distraction, many companies are turning towards “videos”. 

Videos can be fun to watch, engaging, and informative all at the same time. Forbes says that 75% of executives watch work-related videos on business portals at least once a week. Here are some key reasons businesses should be using videos to improve employee engagement.

Videos Are A Great Way To Connect With Every Single Employee

There is no denying in that videos are far more powerful than text and email, as they can communicate the tone, bring in more attention, and convey the message through storytelling. Large enterprises with multiple offices and thousands of employees working (both in-house and remotely) can use video to add a personal touch into business communications. A short video or vlog by the manager or CEO can work wonders in engaging employees and make them feel valued. How great it would be to have a video message from the CEO congratulating a team on achieving monthly goals, or a motivating message to an individual who failed to achieve the desired results. This will make employees feel that their work does not go unnoticed. The employees, then, will get more motivated to outperform their present progress and struggle to ensure better results the next time. If you do not want to hire professionals to create videos, who always need to be credited through content creator boxes,  simply use Moovly, a drag-and-drop video maker for businesses. It is a user-friendly online platform that makes it easy and intuitive to make engaging videos with no expertise and barely any budget needed. WIth over 1+ million free images, videos, and sounds, as well as numerous video templates, you can create powerful video content in minutes.

Videos Are A Powerful Medium For Employee Training And Career Advancement

Employees are less likely to leave the companies that invest in their staff’s training and career advancement. Videos, by far, are the best training medium and can be used in a number of ways. Companies can record a training session and make it available to the employees in all offices and departments; a collection of learning and development videos can train new employees; and knowledge-based, how-to videos from experienced employees can provide essential information to the less experienced staff. Besides, videos are a visually stimulating medium that improves the viewer’s ability to remember forgetful details. In facts, video-based presentations ensure 9% more comprehension than text-based training materials.

This video is not just helpful for logo designers, but it is also helpful for the employees of the design agencies who would want to learn.  Don Crawley – The IT customer service expert—guides the viewers about a systematic process to ensure successful Tech support. Such videos can be made available to the tech support department to help them hone their skills.Videos Are Fun, Relatable And Empathetic

Human brains are hard-wired to respond to the expressions, tone, and body language; a text-based email lacks all of them. It makes email less relatable and empathetic as compared to videos.

With videos, it is easier to convey empathy and interact with the audience through humor, gestures, postures, expressions, and tone. It makes the audience feel a real connection and continue to watch until the end. 

Videos can also create the wow moments that can delight your employees. Let’s say a Christmas greeting video form the HR department to the employees when they are on vacations can be far more fun to watch than a bland email, saying Merry Christmas.

Deloitte Global’s former CEO, Barry Salzberg, sent a special New Year message to the 210,000+ Deloitte employees across the globe, making them determine how they are going to make an impact in 2015.

After the sudden resignations of Research In Motion (RIM)’s co-chief executives and co-chairmen, the then-new CEO of the company, Thorsten Heins, recorded a motivational message for the RIM employees to dilute the uncertainties. 

 

Videos Can Reveal Accurate Employee Engagement Metrics

Videos are also a hero without the cape when measuring the effectiveness of communication. Emails and text messages do have read-recipes, but it only tells you how many people have received/read the content. However, in the case of videos, it is possible to get in-depth analysis. Using the right video tools, employer/publisher can easily determine advanced analytics, such as the number of total views on the video, the drop-off points, which part of the video the viewers skipped or rewound, the average duration employees watch the video, and the list of videos that are watched the most. In short, you can know how more or less engaged they are. 

Employers can use this data to tweak up their video content and make informed decisions, which is not yet possible with the company-wide emails that just allow open rates to be tracked.

Videos Make Company’s Values and Culture Easier to Grasp

How many people actually read terms and conditions before clicking on the “I agree to the terms and conditions” checkbox? 90% of consumers do not

If that is the case, who’d want to dive into the ocean of text explaining what the company is all about and what it aspires to achieve?However, things can be their opposite if the same information is delivered right from the source (the CEO). It will also decrease the lack of connection between employees and senior management, without encroaching on the employees’ work time. Instead, it will make the employees feel valued.

Above all, if the staff knows what it company stands for, there will be a higher level of fulfillment at work; everybody will be contented knowing that s/he (in some ways) is contributing to the accomplishment of company’s goals and objective. This can make a real difference to employee engagement.

The Apple video explains why its employees see things differently within the company and why this perspective matters to future innovative discoveries.

See yourself at Google is a video that leaves you with a yearning to work here. The company culture, as shown in this video, is fun, innovative, and worth experiencing. 

Videos Are Effective In Sharing Updates

Videos are real time-savers; they are asynchronous conversations, allowing the viewers to watch them at their own convenience. At least once a year, employees can get a sneak peek into company update video, comprising of news and customer reviews. It will unleash the organization’s achievements in the previous year and the benchmarks that are set for the year(s) to come. Such videos can be really inspiring and effective in making the employees feel valued and involved, which makes them a great option to start a meeting or conference. 

Moreover, companies can also use videos to share product updates, the addition of new features, or a revision in the company’s policy with their employees. It will be helpful in making sure each of the employees stays on the same page.

The CRO of Electroneum, Richard Ells used a video to share some insights with the ETN community into the company’s new registration process and Gig Guru.

The video reveals a message from HII’s president and CEO, Mike Petters, on the holiday break highlighting the milestones and accomplishment of the year.

Videos Are Easily Shared By The Advocating Employees

As soon as employees turn into the powerful advocates, they will most probably share their company’s videos with their circles on different platforms. They will share everything from CEO’s messages to new products because they do not just believe in their company but are also proud of it. The more a company’s videos are shared by the employees, the greater will be its exposure, which eventually works as the word of mouth for prospective customers and future employees. This portrays the company as a great place to work and do business with. An email or a memo is also great, but it does not help the same way though. Businesses can work with a third party to get assistance in video creation and branding if they want to look professional. Agree! Not all videos should be shared considering the privacy and confidentiality of the company. However, the videos can be encrypted and made available only to a specific audience. In this way, the staff will be able to share only the videos that do not carry any sensitive data. 

Through this video, Trish Devine, a managing director at J.P. Morgan, explains how she maintains a work-life balance in her life and lets her team take a load off whenever required to keep them on track.

Mark Zuckerberg let his apologies for the Facebook data scandals widely spread and shared across different social media platforms via a video, in which he also announced to rightfully testify before the authorities.

To Wrap Up

Happy and engaged employees are more productive; investing some time and money in making videos will never hurt a company. Videos, on the other hand, can be an important asset to any company and its internal communication strategy. What if all the viral corporate videos text-only blogs, would they bag the same amount of response and attention too as they enjoyed being a video?Another noteworthy point here is that videos may marvel anyone with their effects; they are not a magic wand that will change everything in a mere wave. Things take time and it will be better for businesses to start small until they learn how to make videos work for them and then gradually claw their way up once they get a hang of it.
