Video Content Management

Video and Website Content Manager Job Description now a critical new role

Enterprises must face the fact the video is a key element of their future internal and external messaging strategies. Adopting an internal video presence is a must as companies post marketing and training videos on YouTube, making them accessible to employees -- and the rest of the world. The longer IT departments wait, the more likely that company video is going to turn up on YouTube.

Rich media, such as live and on-demand streaming video and audio, provides users with a more complete learning experience by synchronizing additional text, graphics, interactive components, and control elements with video and audio. Benefits of using rich media for employee and partner training include saving time by reducing or eliminating the need to travel, lower costs for employee and partner training, and the ability to capture the attention of e-commerce customers.

Online content can take many forms, including plain text, links, database content, still images (illustrations, photographs, diagrams), animation, audio, video, interactive devices (forms, forums, chat rooms, polls, questionnaires, etc. ). The main responsibility of the video content manager is for the creation or acquisition of verbal content (primarily textual but also audio), although a close relationship with other media specialists, such as graphic designers, will almost certainly be required.
