Video Streaming Is Not Just For Marketing Anymore
The Internet has allowed business and organizations across the globe to capitalizing on the convenience of video streaming. Some of the most popular video seminars are available by video streaming downloads. Today in order to learn a new skill all you need is computer and Internet connection.
These streams vary from training seminars, motivational videos, self-help and religious sermons. Sometimes these video streams are for a specific course of study and may have password-protected pdf file downloads for note taking or testing.
There are content rich video streams that can empower people for greater success, give them tools to help cope with loss, provide step by step directions for a specific skill set or simply provide a unique opportunity to be encouraged by someone skilled in the arena of motivation.
Video streams are a bit like renting a series of DVDs, but the side benefits are much more powerful and bring an interactive value to the overall video. Take for instance interactive online polls, reference material downloads and links to specific complimentary products. These are all things that are not available with existing DVD.
The beauty of Internet is to bring together complimentary technologies, one tool that works in concert with a separate and distinct tool. For instance being able to gain access to a highly valuable training video and then accessing a forum where other members who have viewed the same material can meet to discuss certain aspects of the training. These benefits only add to the value of a paid video stream.
Colleges and Universities have long recognized the importance of making offsite video available for distance learners, but the Internet also allows students to view the video stream from the comfort of their own home or even in a Wi-Fi hot zone using headphones while drinking a latte at a coffee shop.
What does this say about video streaming? Well it tells us that this entertaining tool that was once used as a marketing tool has grown into something more impactful then just a promotional video. Something that was deemed useful to businesses as a marketing tool can be a marketable product in much the same way an eBook can be used as both a marketing tool as well as a marketable product.
This versatile tool can still be used for the amusement of the masses (YouTube and similar video streaming sites), it can still be used to pass along free content rich information and used to enhance an existing fee-based ecourse or study program making something accessible that was never available in such a dynamic way before.
