Quotes From This Episode

“Now I’m more brand-forward and creating avenues for content and pushing the limits and pushing back on requests and we’re seeing marked improvement and engagement and downloads and sales because of it.” —@ReneLego

“With video, the reality is we have to think about everyone as a consumer. ” —@randyfrisch (highlight to tweet)

“Even though we’re a B2B, we market like a B2C.” —@ReneLego

“If we have an idea or a story we might run by maybe 10 to 20 people and get their input on something.” —@ReneLego

“It’s about timing, what works, what projects we have going on, what campaigns, and then what can we fit and make work for our audience.” —@ReneLego

“Ultimately, we want people to download our product and buy it. So if we can get that to happen by getting the video to get them to the page that makes them download it, but I don’t always gauge success just by getting a download.” —@ReneLego

“Video is the gateway to get you in and interested. You might watch more videos along that journey, but ideally, the content, the product, and what we have on the website, should close out the deal and get you to download.” —@ReneLego

“There’s a lot of IT Pros who can’t leave the office. They either don’t have the funds or the life of an IT Pro is you’re at your desk a lot, and you’re solving problems. So we had to come to them.” —@ReneLego

“We have a mix of internal stakeholders, but we’re always working with the content team.” —@ReneLego
