2013: The Year of Mobile, Social and VideoFebruary 25, 2013
Corporate communications in 2013, I believe, with focus on three key areas: Mobile. Social. Video.
The Internet is nearly 20 years old, so many aspects have become relatively mature, in terms of technology, suppliers and standards.
SEO, CMS and Usability are familiar to most ‘C level’ executives and are generally well-researched and implemented.
So where is the innovation which delivers a competitive advantage?
The growth of mobile has been a global phenomenon and will continue. The percentage of advertising spend compared with other technologies over the same time period shows massive growth potential.
The amount of time researching, the amount of time shopping and the value of purchases via mobile, are all constantly increasing.
Companies which do not yet have a mobile compliant presence, will fall behind.
All websites which Digital Tsunami builds this year will be ‘responsive’. This ensures that the content and navigation is adapted to the size of the screen. As an increasing number of traffic online is via smartphones, this ensures that the mobile experience on a handheld device is just as engaging and effective as the website via a desktop or laptop.
The establishment of social networks has grown well beyond personal activities.
It is common today to see a movie trailer end with a Facebook address. 200 million professionals worldwide (and the world’s top companies) use LinkedIn. Brands are using Pinterest to showcase products and engage with prospects.
The plethora of platforms reinforces the need to identify and engage in those platforms which have attained critical mass and which are right for your brand and marketplace.
Digital Tsunami can help you to navigate through the options and deliver a strategy and solutions to maximise impact and engagement with all your stakeholders.
The digital age has made ‘self-publishing’ an easy everyday activity (with no training required)! Anyone with a smartphone can be a produce and publish videos.
However, the volume of content just makes effective video so much rarer! Cut-though is even harder to achieve when looking for a needle in a haystack made of needles!
Do you produce professional video for product demonstrations, do you enable candidates to submit video resumes, do you have live video chat on your site?
The options are extensive, the ability to integrate user-generated content are vast, and your brand is at risk of being devalued!
Digital Tsunami has over 3 decades of experience in professional film and video production. Whether you need a global corporate video or a six-second story for Vine (Twitter’s new video platform), Digital Tsunami has the personnel, resources and expertise to help you achieve powerful, engaging and effective video.
From Our Clients
I recently engaged Digital Tsunami to design and build my 60-page website. I'm a website copywriter who relies heavily on web-generated business, so my own online presence needs to be impeccable.
The solution that Digital Tsunami supplied is brilliant. It meets my needs perfectly; it's clean, bold, elegant, fast, and easy to edit. I've had lots of very positive feedback about it, and since launch, my request for quote rate and conversion rate have increased markedly.
The team at Digital Tsunami was incredibly responsive, delivering a solution well ahead of deadline. Their technical knowledge was exceptional, they were innovative, and they were very meticulous. What's more, they understood my business and technical requirements and translated them into a user-friendly, refined, professional site which is conceptually simple and cohesive.
I have no hesitation in recommending the website design services of Digital Tsunami to any business .. that needs a stand-out online presence.
For providing a reliable, fast, and well maintained hosting service for business websites, I recommend Andrew and his company Digital Tsunami. The technical support given has been above and beyond, their hosting the fastest I have experienced, and is very well maintained with no issues.
Andrew certainly bends over backwards for his new and current clients, and I can tell he genuinely cares about providing nothing short of an outstanding service.
Andrew and his team have supported Foodbank by providing web services for more than a decade.
In fact, they have just undertaken the first complete redevelopment of the original Foodbank website they built for us, and have been maintaining so ably since.
Andrew is creative and passionate and helps us to keep up, constantly looking for new ways to add value and improve our online communications channels.
Service delivery is precisely what was asked, while respecting deadlines and budget constraints. Digital Tsunami are very good value for money, particularly for quick wins without long pre-planning project phases.
.. accurately interpreted the project brief and the outcome was a piece of cost effective quality work.
