How would you describe Vocal Video?
MacKenna Anovick: Testimonial videos are a great way for any company to illustrate all the hard work the employees are doing, while also making the content personal. Vocal Video is a simple way to showcase your community via video.
How is Optimizely using testimonial videos?
At Optimizely, it is very important to us to showcase our employees. We feature employees company-wide on our all-hands calls, and externally on our social media accounts.
We love to highlight our company culture through our employees and we use Vocal Video to support all our employee culture initiatives.
What challenges did you have with creating video testimonials before Vocal Video?
Vocal Video condenses the process of collecting videos and increases participation in our testimonials.
Without Vocal Video, it was a lot more work for employees. They had to follow confusing directions, record videos on their own device, add it to a shared folder, and specifically name their file according to a formula. The process we had before was too complex.
Vocal Video makes it simple on the front and back end of projects.
What’s the ROI of video testimonials for Optimizely and how do you measure it?
By using our employee testimonials externally on our social channels, we see a return on investment from increased talent acquisition. We are able to recruit more individuals and grow our company.
Would you recommend others try Vocal Video? Why?
MacKenna Anovick: I 1,000% recommend Vocal Video to others. Anyone who does any form of testimonials, whether it be employee, customer, or partner testimonials can benefit. Vocal Video makes the process so much smoother for everyone involved.
