We were excited to see that the Internet Innovation Alliance(IIA) recently made a public announcement calling for expanded broadband Internet access to help military families stay connected with loved ones.

1. Video communication for active military provides our troops the opportunity to interact with their families in real-time. “From my experience, it is essential to the mental health and morale of our troops to be able to see and speak with family and friends,” said Afghanistan war veteran Rick Noriega, Colonel in the Texas Army National Guard and a former five-term member of the Texas House of Representatives from Houston. “I remember a priceless moment during my deployment to Afghanistan in 2005 when I was able to watch my son open his Christmas gifts over the Internet.” Read More »

In February 2012 179 million U.S. Internet users watched nearly 38 billion online videos, according to industry research. Predictably, YouTube statistics are colored with consumer viewing behavior. But B2B online video viewing grew 27% from 2010 to 2011 and eMarketer estimates that B2B spending on online video will rise as much as 55% this year. Which makes it the fastest growing ad format in 2012. In fact, your B2B audience expects you to engage them via video. Companies that don’t utilize video as part of their marketing efforts are likely to use lead generation opportunities to competitors that do.
Having online video in your mix is a priority for marketing in the coming year. Here five tips to help you create compelling videos to drive your business:

White papers, promotional materials, training videos, presentations developed for product briefings, keynote presentations given by your executive teams at conferences, panel discussions, interviews – the list is endless if you really look. Identify it, categorize it, and leverage it to engage your customers and prospect.
