The same team that created StreamingMedia.com and StreamingMediaGlobal.com—sites are behind OnlineVideo.net. Eric worked closely with Streamingmedia.com writer Troy Drier to fill the site with new content, which as he noted their other online and magazine publications have become essential reading material for the streaming video industry. This new website focuses on hands-on tips and how-to information to help you get the most out of your online video initiative, it's "Streaming Media for the rest of us."
In his introductory post on the website, Eric noted,
In this interview, he added that,"Companies that never thought of using video now realize it’s the best way to communicate with their customers, build their brands, and educate and inform stakeholders both inside and outside of their organizations. With this new audience comes new challenges and new possibilities. People from all industries are looking to online video to take their businesses to the next level, but their interests and needs aren’t the same as the video insiders that preceded them. Rather than codecs and CDNs, you want to talk strategy and useful real-world tips. You want to know how to pull in viewers, go viral, and give an inexpensive shoot some Madison Avenue polish."
"We're still going after the enterprise market, the government market, the education market, but it's not necessarily the heads of communications or IT in those spaces. It's the folks in those spaces that are trying to do video themselves or the small and medium-sized business owners."The website is essentially a blog format, so look for daily updates to the site in the form of online video news, case studies, buyer’s guides, how-tos, video reviews, and events, and possibly some contributions from your truly as well!
Congratulations Eric, Troy and everyone at Information Today Inc. on the launch!
