Why choose video for your PR?

Did you know that videos are 53 times more likely to grab and hold someone's attention than plain text alone? That's right, video content; especially live (or "as live"); can be more captivating than text on its own, and help you cut through the noise to make your PR stand out even more AND retain control of its interpretation by those digesting it!

With Visual PR's style of video content, you have the opportunity to showcase your brand's personality and values to an even greater extent. Whether you want to be funny, informative, or heartfelt, the video content can help you bring your brand to life, give you control of the tone you wish it to be received in, and help you create those personal connections.

Build trust & credibility with a global audience

Not only can this video content reach far and wide, but people are also more likely to trust a brand that shows the faces, voices, processes and premises behind it. When it is not scripted, feels natural, facilitates interaction, and there are clearly no "smoke and mirrors", it instantly provides credibility and connections.

Imagine you were considering two identical holiday cottage lettings, both with great photos and write-ups. But one of them also had regular live/as-live video content from the owners and/or team, showing and telling you all sorts of aspects of their cottage, service, surrounding area, optional extras, etc. What impact is that likely to have on you as a potential customer? Now adapt this principle to you or your organisation and consider the impact it could have.

This video content remains useful long after it is broadcast or recorded, and can even be repurposed, whether that is to create multiple short-form videos or extract the audio and/or textual dictation from them for social media posts, podcasts, or to help you create blogs and other supporting written PR content.

Endless possibilities from educational, interviews, Q&A’s to marketing videos, testimonials, venue tours, or from live events.

Options & Process

Your content can be:

  • LIVE - One to many stars/guests, broadcast to the likes of YouTube, social media, LinkedIn, and/or websites
    • This also enables viewers' questions/comments to be shown on the screen with their profile image and name
  • As-Live - Free-flowing to retain integrity, authenticity, and fluency, but uploaded as required
  • Or even a hybrid incl. playing videos/interviews within a show when recorded previously at different times, time zones, and/or locations

The content can be done:

  1. WITH you - Visual PR founder & professional presenter, Chris Dawes, can interview you/your guests, which makes many feel much more natural and relaxed, and thus more fluent content than presenting to camera for many
  2. OF you - We run the production/broadcast in and from our virtual studio, but you and/or your guests are the ones on camera. (N.B. our parent company, Open Dawes Training, can also provide media training if required)
  3. FOR you - We can even be your presenter for you if you would prefer.

Multiple stars/guests can be part of the show at the same time:

  • Multiple cameras/views on screen, with altered focuses of chosen cameras at any one time (dynamically changed by Producer)
  • Backstage/green room area for guests to wait to be taken in/out of the show at the right times
  • Private text chat functionality between guests/stars during show
  • Guests/interviewees can also be on mobile device cameras to allow the showing of things other than their faces, and alternative locations

Onboarding

To ensure consistency and discipline, Visual PR creates, follows, maintains, and shares collaborative processes (e.g. with your PR/Marketing teams), including full visibility via project management tools where appropriate. These include:

  • Obtain logos, images, and any video stings you already have
  • Establish corporate colours for banners etc. used in the shows
  • Create connections to your social media and/or YouTube channel(s) to broadcast to if live. Can also be embedded into website pages
  • Create or upload show intro, segue, adverts, and outro videos (incl. usage/editing of any video & image collateral provided)
  • Complete branding for all shows to represent you/your organisation

Ongoing

“The Live Visual PR Option Ticked So Many Boxes For Us!”

"Taking our information live as a "chat show" to our YouTube and Facebook channels really helped us get much more engagement, get the information out quicker, and create much more of a personal contact with people, including answering questions and getting live feedback.

The possibilities of what we can share and the fun we can have with it is huge and we can't wait to have this consistent output of content that is much more natural, but a production that looks so professional!"

“Virtues of Being Interviewed”

“I felt much more comfortable, and was, therefore, able to speak much more fluently when I was being interviewed instead of just trying to present in front of a camera!”
