Just like the BBC, your company is a broadcaster. In 1922 The BBC became the world’s first national broadcasting organisation: Reaching into every home, it was the broadcast medium upon which people in the United Kingdom relied. 92 years later, it still broadcasts TV, Radio, Online and Interactive digital television to mass audiences across the globe.
You may think you’re a law firm, a building contractors, or an investment bank but the minute you publish a website, blog, Facebook post or even a tweet you also become a broadcaster, with the potential to reach an audience as big as the Beeb’s.
Every broadcast you make goes towards forming or cementing your brand. Being on-air no longer applies solely to TV and radio, companies are broadcasting their brands across all social media. The line between on-air and on-line is becoming more vague. So in order to succeed in brand broadcasting, you need to think like a media broadcaster and behave like a media broadcaster.
Video is rich content, over 75% of all data downloads onto mobiles are video.
Cisco believes that 90% of the world’s data will be video by the end of 2014.
Grasp the Opportunity
Screens are everywhere. Video is huge. You need to start thinking of your clients as an audience, rather than simply clients. Your audience wants useful content and if it’s not regular, rich, entertaining or engaging, they’ll go elsewhere. Read more HERE about why video is the perfect tool to captivate your audience.

7. Inform and invite your audience of when and where they can see more
8. Package and brand your content
