4 Steps For Persuading Your Stakeholders To Invest In Video (Ep. 47)
by TODD HARTLEY, on Nov 1, 2016 7:47:00 AM
Sure, you understand the power of video. You’re convinced that video is going to generate leads, boost sales, and skyrocket your company’s ROI...
But what about your boss?
Even today, many key stakeholders don’t recognize the significant advantage video can provide to a business.
Maybe they don’t know that businesses that use video are growing 49% faster than their industry competitors. Or perhaps they don’t know that 4 out of 5 people think a product video is important to the buying process, with 25% saying that they lose interest in companies that don’t use video.
So the question is: how do you persuasively inform key stakeholders about the importance of video, without turning it into a conflict over company resources?
It’s an important question, which is why I’ve brought back Marcus Krieg to walk you through a simple four-step framework for persuading your coworkers to give video marketing a try.
If you’re fighting to get video adopted at your company, then this is a great episode you won’t want to miss!
