If a picture is worth a thousand words, then how much is a video worth?
More teams are starting to ask themselves the question as they learn that videos are among the top ways to drive audience engagement. But determining how to effectively add video to your communication strategy can be tricky. Teams need tools that can help them create personalized video content and then effortlessly distribute it at scale to trigger higher levels of engagement, hit KPIs, and generate more revenue.
With new document animation platforms, teams are finding ways to elevate their existing content by adding video and audio elements that just aren’t possible with standard PowerPoint presentations.
Vyond and AirDeck are top choices among teams who need to level up their presentation game.
Read on to learn more about each platform so you can determine which is the best pick for your team.
Vyond is an online video animation software that allows businesses to easily create professional animated videos for those in job roles like marketing, sales, training, and eLearning. Its goal is to change the way teams communicate.
Founded as GoAnimate in 2007, Vyond now focuses on helping organizations, small businesses, and individuals produce their own videos. The Vyond platform allows teams to incorporate video into their campaigns to create content that can improve KPIs and motivate audiences.
Vyond makes its video animation software available to teams via a number of different plans. The Essential Plan gives a single user basic video options for $299 per year. The Premium Plan is geared toward small businesses, offering basic video options to a single user with high-quality exports and live chat support for $649 per year. The Professional Plan is scalable and suitable for medium- to large-sized businesses with advanced features and priority customer service for $999 per year. Finally, Vyond also offers an Enterprise Plan with advanced information security features, training and onboarding assistance, and a dedicated account manager. This is available at a custom price.
AirDeck is a document narration platform that empowers enterprise sales, onboarding, and marketing teams to deliver personalized presentations at scale. Combining premium video and audio capabilities with comprehensive tracking and data analytics, AirDeck gives teams the tools to wow their audiences from content creation to delivery to analysis.
The first step is content creation, where teams can transform PowerPoint decks, Keynote slides, Google Docs, or any of the other 210+ file formats that are supported by AirDeck by overlaying video narrations, audio narrations, or screen recordings. Sharing is then made simple with easily-generated links that can be shared via email, social media, or website embeds to give viewers instant real-time access.
And unlike other animation platforms, AirDeck takes it to the next level, offering comprehensive tracking and data analytics to give teams deep insight into audience engagement and activity. With the ability to track every second of every view, AirDeck grants teams access to key stats, like how many viewers engage with the document, when, and from where, so teams can edit their content and keep on improving over time.
Creating and sharing engaging content is the foundation to building strong customer relationships, hitting KPI goals, and growing revenue. And it’s becoming clear that video-based content is a sure-fire way to get audiences to engage.
