Multimedia Shows and Presentations for Modern Programs in Companies

With the development of modern computer technologies, multimedia training, demonstrations and public presentations are gaining popularity. Appropriate equipment is needed for this type of public speaking.

Multimedia projectors are the most commonly used for this purpose (recently also in 3D form). They are used not only by personalities from the world of science, culture and art, but also by trainers in multimedia training. In recent years, this form has become the most popular type of employee education.

The content of such a public lecture is usually illustrated with properly prepared multimedia elements. They can be photos in the form of so-called slideshow (drawings), drawings, as well as increasingly used presentations with animations (flash shows). Audiovisual presentation of the content of lectures, papers and various types of messages is also a great introduction to scientific discussions.

Multimedia shows are most often conducted in conference rooms. The organization of these most prestigious is supervised by a qualified team of people specializing in servicing multimedia conferences and organization of public speaking. Everything here must be done up – the responsibility is huge.

IT professionals oversee the technical side of each presentation using the appropriate tools to create them. Multimedia shows are most often carried out using the Power Point program, which does not mean that it is the only one of its kind. There are many other applications on the market that are perfect for such endeavors.

Multimedia has also found wide application in the production of television commercials. Various types of drawings, photos and animations used during their creation play an extremely important role here. Their proper use in an advertising spot often guarantees an increase in consumer interest in the promoted product.

Modern companies use computer programs on a daily basis. In the rich offer, every company or small or medium-level enterprise will find industry-specific software that will help it manage and run business more efficiently and effectively.

Cost calculation solutions and invoicing programs are invariably the most popular. Storage systems work well in the sales-related area, and if an entrepreneur has transferred his business to the internet, he will definitely be interested in programs for online stores.

People associated with graphics, architecture and designing can use a very wide range of design software. This with advanced and extended functions usually costs a few to several thousand zlotys, but for simple activities free versions of programs downloaded from the Internet may be sufficient.

Manufacturers of business programs are constantly expanding their range of computer systems for companies.

Applications are created for individual departments, for example, accounting or marketing, but also increasingly better global enterprise management programs for managers. Comfortable multimedia training programs for all staff are new to the offer. They allow you to save time and costs of participating in traditional training, they are also very convenient and effective to use.

Why Should You Have a Multimedia TV Program at Home

In many ordinary, even traditional objects the TV is. With this receiver we usually eat dinner and discuss with family. In many buildings he is the usual center of family life. TV shows are a great source of news. For example, if in the office we do not have time to look at websites where all information appears as soon as possible, then after returning to the premises we can turn on the TV and on one of many channels we will certainly find information programs.

Of course, television is not just information. Let’s not forget that animated films or broadcasts for older children may be interesting for our children, and ladies love to watch TV series and soap operas. So it may happen that at the same time several people will want to watch their favorite program, fairy tale or movie. There is no trouble when in our premises or building in every room, and even in the kitchen is a TV, but what to do if we have only a single TV and everyone wants to see something different?

In this case, it is necessary to look in advance at the TV program. As a result, we will control the wishes of all members of our family and plan in advance what and when a particular person will be able to watch. For example, we will be able to inform our children on which channels and at what times they can watch their favorite cartoons and programs, or when replays of programs are running, when they cannot be watched on the first date.

From these television programs we will also know, for example, which previously unseen series will be displayed in the autumn schedule, and what will change in the summer.

The big advantage of regular TV programs that are included in many magazines is that in addition to the standard program of many stations, we can also read about, for example, music and film festivals – their history, backstage preparation for them or who will be performing at them .

Just Below the Marketing Surface

I preface this blog entry by pointing out how amazing the world of communications is now! I had a very experienced Toyota/car industry expert call me out on my first paragraph stating that it was based on media hype and I humbly admit that I don’t know all the facts of the recall or of the company’s stability. So, he’s absolutely right! I shouldn’t be stating facts that I don’t know are true.

I stand corrected and hold myself responsible for my actions. I am leaving my first paragraph in so you can see what I’m referring to but I appreciate his corrections! I guess there are two lessons in this blog entry – starting with how amazing Wed 2.0 is and how not only do we have the power now to hold a company accountable but have the power to hold each other accountable as well.)

[Just below the surface lays a company in shambles! We’ve all heard about the Toyota recalls – the largest auto recall in American history. It has devastated the company. Did you know that Toyota knew about the safety issues and had no intentions of fixing them until the US DOT held their feet to the fire? Props to the US DOT for calling them out! ]

My gripe is not necessarily about the cars and the recall but more how Toyota is handling it. I watched the AMAZING Olympic opening ceremonies last night and Toyota ran an ad (which I have seen several times at this point) that carries the message “trust us again; we’re doing everything we can to make this right.”

As you can tell, I’m less than convinced. Why? Because before you go outward with a message that you’ve changed and are making things right and that you care about us as customers (I own a Toyota 4 Runner – not one involved in the recalls but I’m still a customer), you need to sell that idea to your employees – especially your CUSTOMER SERVICE PEOPLE!!!!

So, the millions you’re spending on that ad is in short, a complete waste of money – at least from what I’ve seen firsthand. Unfortunately, my 4 Runner’s 4 W D died about a month ago. It only has 66,000 miles on it and it’s just out of warranty.

I took it to Sloane Toyota in Devon, PA and was confronted with immediate attitude when I asked (kindly, might I add) “why would a truck’s 4 W D just die if it has been used according to the user’s manual, maintained to the book and is young in 4 Runner/4 W D terms?”

The “customer service rep” responded (looking at his computer the entire time) that he’s “never seen this happen on a 4 Runner with 60,000 miles” but “things just happen – especially if they haven’t been maintained properly.” So, as my temperature rose from his complete indifference, I explained that the truck has been well maintained and that I’ve seen many forums online that have users experiencing the same issues.

His response – “don’t talk to me about the Internet. There’s all sorts of loons out there gabbing about everything from this to that.” I calmly explained that those “loons” are HIS customers!

So, after I left (mad as hell and about $2000 poorer), I called Toyota Corporate to see if they could help absorb some of the cost since the truck was just out of  warranty and the service tech at the dealership said “it shouldn’t have gone” and encouraged me to call corporate. After a 45 minute wait on hold, I got yet another indifferent voice on the other side of the phone that tried to poke holes my story. It was like she was waiting for that “gotcha” moment to say “sorry, we can’t do anything for you.”

She told me she’d speak with the dealer and call me back (which she did two days later). When she did, she basically said, “nope, there’s nothing we can do…sorry” and tried to end the call as fast as possible. It was like an insurance adjuster doing everything they can do not to pay the claim.

So, here I am, my truck is still not 100% right. I paid over $1800 in parts and labor just to have the 4 wd work only some of the time and was treated as if I was trying to pull one over on Toyota – at the dealer AND corporate level.

So I refer you back to the ad I saw last night during the Olympics. The one that they spent millions on to convince me, a Toyota owner that they’re going to make things right and gain my trust again Now I know that that doesn’t’ mean they’re going to start paying for every little issue every Toyota owner is having – nor, in my case, did I want them to (I wanted them to absorb only some of the cost).

But what I did believe the ad to mean is that at a very minimum, their customer service reps at the dealer and corporate level would be a) professional b) compassionate c) recognize that these are their customers and try to satisfy them even if they can’t provide the solution the customer is requesting. But NOPE! It seems like its business as usual at Toyota and dare I say it, maybe they’re even more indifferent due to the flood of angry customers they have to deal with as a result of their negligence.

So, I use this as a case study and you should too! If you’re selling me on the fact that you care about me as customer, you better sell your employees on it first. Because the Toyota employees that I encountered, clearly don’t believe in that ad that corporate is spending millions on it to convince me to believe! If they don’t believe, I certainly don’t believe! I’m actually even more disenfranchised now than ever before!

Okay….so this isn’t just a rant about my bad experience with Toyota, it’s a lessons learned for all business owners and marketing directors Your great ideas, messaging, well placed and timed ads mean NOTHING if your own people don’t believe it. Sell it internally first then go outwards with the message. Or, you too, will be like Toyota and have an online war of “loons” waged against you as a result.

This to me is a very sad case. I’m disappointed in Toyota and they should be in themselves. Their customer service reps need to be trained or fired.

This is Meg Ferguson, a marketing expert and consumer just like you, encouraging you to use the power of Wed 2.0. Your voices are being heard! While Toyota might not hear my specific story it is just one of the hundreds of thousands if not millions that they’re being bombarded with. There is a groundswell and it is powerful. Embrace it.

Stop Fighting the Environment in Marketing

I have seen their advertisement on network television frequently over the last week or so and their marketing pitch to convert you from reusing a traditional hand towel (at home) to using their new disposable hand towels is that “hands are only as clean as the towel that dries them.” Well, I probably agree with that but environmentally, they’re bucking the system and my bets are on the system!

I’ll admit it, I’m not the “greenest” person in the world (although working on it) but even the voice in MY head screamed “HELLO???? Isn’t my traditional hand towel that I can wash over and over with my energy star (yes, I do have an energy star) washer/dryer better for the environment? This was my first reaction (and obviously a strong enough one to blog about it).

This entry isn’t about what’s green and what’s not. It’s more about strategic marketing. What is strategic marketing? In the end, it’s about business growth – selling product/services – growing the bottom line. A lot goes into the formula for strategic marketing including environmental influences of the products and/or services that I’m marketing for my clients.

Environmental influences are huge and cannot be ignored! Case in point: I have a pharmaceutical client that wanted their sales reps to gain more face time with doctors to increase prescriptions for a particular drug line. After some obvious and not so obvious research, I told them straight up it wasn’t going to happen.

Docs are making less and less money and have less and less time and are paying more and more in insurance all while increasing their patient visits to make up for it their losses. And it was only getting worse. These are clearly environmental influence rs that are impacting their audience.

Even the best chat sky or incentives (which are highly regulated now) wouldn’t get the reps face time. But what we did find out as result of a survey we distributed to sales reps and docs was that the “best incentive” by far was a medical textbook.

So instead of bucking the environmental influences in our strategic marketing campaign, like Kleenex is doing against the “green” movement, we embraced it. We invited Docs to attend webinars (on their own time) in return for free drug samples and a medical textbook of their choice. It was a FABULOUS success. So, while we didn’t get what the client originally ordered – face time – we did grow the bottom line and that’s what strategic marketing is!

Kleenex would love to hear from you! You’re a huge company with super smart marketers. Please tell me how you’re justifying your product that is the opposite of green with your strategic marketing approach that even set off bells and whistles in my “less green/SUV driving” head. Tell me how I’m wrong!

Make Your Marketing Product Selection a Success

Before you can start writing articles or researching keywords, the second step of Marketing is ensuring that there is a good product to promote which accurately fits your chosen niche. If you have a great niche, find awesome keyword and write compelling articles, that’s all fine and dandy, but you aren’t going to make money if there’s not a great product to promote.

Therefore, if you neglect to take the time necessary to accurately research and choose the right product, all your other Marketing efforts may go to waste. You could send hundreds of people to the sales page of an affiliate’s product, but if it doesn’t convert visitors into buyers, or is priced too expensively, or doesn’t jive with your niche, then you won’t be making much in the way of commission.

One of the first things to look for when looking for a product is to find something that will satisfy people’s desires or wants rather than their needs. Desire’s appeal to emotions whereas needs don’t. Also, many more people shop for fun rather than necessity (again desires vs. needs). Therefore, it might be a better idea to promote video games rather than office software.

Something else you’ll want to keep an eye out for is the selling price of the product as well as the percentage commission it pays. If the product is too expensive, or the commission percentage is low – you might want to look for alternatives as it likely won’t make you much in the way of big bucks.

Another thought is to find a product that pays a recurring commission like a membership site or some other kind of subscription service. It isn’t really much harder to sell something with recurring fees than something that is a one-time sale, and with recurring fees you get paid over and over again for the same amount of work.

Ideally, you should buy and try out the products you wish to promote yourself before recommending it to other people. Otherwise, if you recommend a product that promises the world but delivers nothing your reputation will be tarnished. Also, by trying out the product first, it will enable you to write quality and more compelling review of its which should in turn increase your signature click-through and your commission checks.

Don’t forget to take a look at the products sales page.

Is it compelling enough to sell you?

Does it convert a good percentage of visitors into customers?

If the answers no, then you might want to look elsewhere.

The Marketing is Indispensable for Any Business

 No matter what the size or the location of the business.

What is so very special about marketing?

Nobody who has been in business for even an hour would even bother to ask such a question. In fact, even when thinking of starting any kind of business, most people would first think of how they are going to market the business. That is how very important this concept is to any business.
The reason why marketing is so very important to any business is that it is the lifeblood of any business. Think about it, when there are so many companies out there fighting for business space as they have so many similar products or services as the other many companies – if you had a business of your own, how would you expect to compete with all these companies?

And that is why you need marketing

To survive in the highly competitive environment of today, you must have a very strong marketing strategy in place. Without this, you would not be able to survive and you would finally have to close shop and swallow all your losses – whether you can afford to gulp down such losses or not, is an entirely different subject.
With a marketing strategy in place, you will be able to reach out to people – your existent customers, as well as potential customers. It is very important that you reach out to not only potential prospects, but also to people who are already with you.

Why is this so?

The reason why you have to reach out to people who are already your customers is so that they know that you are still a force to reckon with in the market. If they do not see your brand in the market, they will begin to think that you are no longer popular and they will move on to another company.
And the reason why you need to reach out to people who are not your clients is simple – you want to generate more business – the more people buying from you, the more money you will make – as simple as that! Thus, you have to always carry out marketing campaigns to people who are already buying from you, as well as to target people who are your potential customers.

What can marketing do for your business?

When you employ the right strategies you will thus be able to focus on specific target audiences (TA). Target audiences are the people who are most likely to buy from you. But the big question here –

Do you know who TA is?

Well if you know who TA, great. But in the event that you are unaware of your TA, there are many market research companies that can carry out surveys for you and determine TA. Fact is, you must already have done your research and found out who your TA is, before you decided that you will manufacture a certain product or sell a certain service. After all, how can you decide that you will sell any product or service, without first determining that there is actually a market for it?

Many businesses fail without the right marketing strategy in place

It may be a bit strange to believe this, but even in these days where the competition is so very stiff, many companies fail to employ the right marketing strategies. And, they thus fail and have to close down.
In today’s market, it is very important for any company to focus on specific marketing strategies. Just using a generic strategy is just not going to work as there are just too many companies offering way too many products and services that are almost as same as the one that you have or the one that you plan to market.

Marketing will help in establishing a presence for your brand

Say you have gone shopping for a car or a shoe or a dress or even a tube of toothpaste. You may see this great new car or shoe or dress or toothpaste tube and you may desperately want to buy it. But then, there is one thought that comes to your mind – this brand is totally unknown, – yes, you have never ever heard of this brand. And so it is more than likely that you are not going to buy this unknown brand – no matter how good the product or service may appear to be.
And this is a fact; most consumers will only buy from known brands. That means, you need to tell people about your brand and your products or services and that is why you have to have a good marketing strategy in place.

The bottom line is…

No matter what kind of business you are into, no matter whether you are a Fortune 500 company or whether you are the owner of a small burger shop in your locality, marketing is indispensable for your business – if you want to succeed and make money!
