Listening to WIII-FM

There’s one radio station we all listen to: WIII-FM, the station that asks “What Is In It – For Me?” We don’t mean to be selfish, but it can be hard to pay attention when you don’t see why something matters to you. This video discusses how we can broadcast our messages with WIII-FM in mind and get people tuned in.

Refining Real Search

Searching for something you need can be like looking for a needle in a haystack. Sifting through your organization’s files can be a long, tedious process. This engagement video discusses how you can narrow down your search results from thousands of items to just one or two.

Communicating in Layers

You’ve heard the advice: dress in layers. In this video, we explain why you should communicate in layers, too. We discuss how layering is different than just repeating yourself, and why different channels of communication can help get your message out.

Available Now: Communications Tips for Everyone

Talking to people is hard. Talking to lots and lots of people is so hard that there are entire fields of study and job titles devoted to it. However, many of us weren’t trained to do this duty. It’s our job to get the information people need to them, but they don’t seem to be listening.

A few months ago, we released our User Engagement video series. We realized that part of the problem with getting users engaged is getting them listening in the first place. How do you get people aware of the exciting new technologies? How do you deliver the useful info when people just skim your subject line?

That’s why we compiled a whole set of communications tips for anyone to be able to use and understand. From the modest memo to the company-wide communications, you don’t have to be professionally trained in the art of conversation to get people to perk their ears up and pay attention. Each five minute video delivers a tip or trick that you can use immediately in your corporate communications.

The first one here discusses what to do when you have to deliver some sensitive subjects to your organization. Check it out:

Just like with our user engagement series, we’ll be slowly releasing all of these videos on YouTube. However, you can sign up and get these videos delivered to you every week, ad-free. All you have to do is click here to sign up today.

Then, if you decide that you want to use these videos internally, you can license it for use in your organization. With no ads, branding, or bumpers, you’ll get all the videos at once, even those that we haven’t made public yet. Click here to support us and your communicators.

Out of Order Information

We like things to be in their proper place, but sometimes what we think is proper is different than what other people think. Luckily, we can get our information in order just how we like it, as we explain in this engagement video.

Listing Excel Sheets

Dropping Files is Good

A consistent complaint from users is how difficult it is to work with files that are on websites, including the intranet.  In this engagement video, we explain how working with files on the intranet is as easy as dropping files.  Dropping files in real life is not all that fun. Dropping files online is easy, as we explain in this video.

Rogue Revision Rewind

One of the frequent concerns of users that prevents adoption is what happens when you accidentally delete or corrupt a document. It used to be that, if you accidentally deleted something from a file and saved over it, there was no going back. SharePoint makes recovering from this a breeze, as we explain in this video.
