Ziggeo’s Media Dashboard

Companies are turning to Ziggeo as a way to organize video submissions.  With tens or hundreds or even thousands of videos being submitted, they would all be submitted to the same media dashboard where the videos can be easily shared, evaluated, and if appropriate, downloaded or launched.

One Fortune 500 company conducted a campaign through an agency with hundreds of videos submitted using Ziggeo’s technology. The agency was easily able to share the videos with the company via the dashboard, identify videos they wanted to feature, and continue to have easy access to videos for future launches.

Ziggeo Seen as Way-Station for Public Videos

Companies are turning to Ziggeo as a way-station before making videos public through social networks.  By requesting that videos be submitted to Ziggeo, companies can moderate and feature which videos are made public.   So for instance, if a company launches a contest with video submissions, by requesting that videos be submitted via Ziggeo, companies will not be damaged by a lack of submissions. That is, no one will know how many videos are submitted and thus can announce and feature a winner with no one the wiser.

Major Benefit of Video Profiles: Learn to Pronounce Their Names

One of the major (and least often recognized) benefits to asking for people to introduce themselves on video is you can easily learn how to pronounce their names.  With people of all nationalities coming together, it’s often not clear how someone’s name is pronounced. But by asking people to record their video profiles, you can now instantly learn how their names are pronounced.

And of course, Ziggeo literally lets you put a face with a name.

Three Categories of Ziggeo Videos

Ziggeo videos generally fall into three categories:

  1. Videos for private use and/or evaluation (e.g. for candidate videos submitted in response to a particular job opening for review by the employer)
  2. Videos that are shares within a private community (e.g. community video profiles that are shared so members the community can introduce themselves on video to one another)
  3. Videos that are submitted privately and then launched once reviewed.  This serves a variety of purposes: to moderate videos, feature the best, alter the videos in some way, and obtain the rights you need prior to launching.

Ziggeo: A Helpful Tool for Pitch Practice

Ziggeo is a helpful tool for any mentoring program, incubator or investor looking to train their entrepreneurs and startups with pitches.  With Ziggeo’s asynchronous video technology, pitches can be recorded on entrepreneurs own time — with feedback from mentors and experts given on their own time.

Ziggeo’s technology also lets a maximum recording time be set so if you want to train in 30 second or 60 second pitches, that’s all the recording time entrepreneurs will have.  And with the ability to re-record, entrepreneurs can practice over and over again and only submit a pitch for review once they’re happy with it.

And now, with Ziggeo Pages, no engineering or integration is required.  A program can simply sign up for Ziggeo, select the Video Submission template, and start requesting videos.  Once recorded, they’ll show up in the Ziggeo Dashboard that can be shared with whomever is given permission to view the videos.

Use Cases Abound with Ziggeo’s Flexibility

We’ve been amazed at all the different uses people have found for Ziggeo.  Here are just a few:

Recruitment Still a Major Use Case for Ziggeo

A number of recruitment platforms have integrated Ziggeo’s technology to make it easy for videos to be recorded from any device (including mobile) and directly submitted to their platform.

We’ve seen a number of different use cases for recruitment platforms:

  • Candidates record videos for employers to view
  • Employers record videos for candidates to view
  • Video messages exchanged between candidates and employers in response to a particular position

On-Boarding with Ziggeo

Companies are now using Ziggeo to train new employees and improve retention.

How does it work? With Ziggeo, employees can easily record videos practicing their sales pitches and submit them directly for employers to review.  Once employers give feedback, employees can re-record their videos (in fact, they can re-record as many times as they like), and then submit videos again for further comments.

Indeed, certain companies are asking their star employees to record videos of e.g. sales pitches so that newer employees can study them and record practice videos based not the star employees’ videos.

And with Ziggeo, you can set the recording time so that employees can nail pitches within the time allotted (e.g. 30 seconds, 60 seconds, 2 minutes, etc.)
