From recruiting and training, to lead gen, product launches and thought leadership, webcasting technologies can be used internally and externally for a variety of communications purposes. I am commonly asked about the shift we are seeing in content consumption, and what may happen to webcasting and popular online video and presentation services.
My response is these services need to adapt to the way that users consume content, and shift away from broadcasting static messages without two-way dialogue. We live in an age where video and social interaction are king, and the future of webcasting lies in incorporating those tools directly into platforms so that constituents can engage with content and each other effectively. In short, interaction has replaced consumption.
