Media for your website
Your visitors love to interact with your site and one of the best ways to do this is by using one of the many different multimedia channels available to you.
In some cases these can also provide additional exposure such as setting up a youtube channel etc.
On this page I want to show you examples of different media so you can see if it would work for you. Because we use WordPress we can add a lot of it very simply.
Media does not have to be expensive or complicated and you can produce much of this in house if you have a few tools and a little imagination.
Multimedia – Audio
This is a simple music file. Click the little arrow to move to the next song. It is streaming directly from this website.
Multimedia – Public Video
There are hundreds of public video sites that allow you to upload your video and then embed onto your website. Embed is just a fancy name for copy and paste.
The two main ones are Youtube and Vimeo however it is a good idea to set up channels on the top ten as it will drive a lot of traffic to your website.
Here is the same video on You tube and Vimeo so you can compare. We tend to use vimeo for more quality educational videos as they come out much clearer.
Multimedia – Self Hosted Video
You can also stream video directly from your website and if you do not have much traffic this is fine. If you do get a lot of traffic or want to lock them down then we can help you set up a Amazon storage account which is very cost effective. So here is what a self hosted video looks like streamed from amazon.
Multimedia – Powerpoint
For those who find it hard to produce videos a great place to start is with power points as pretty well anyone can produce a power point and there is lots of free software around if you do not have the Microsoft office suite.
Slideshare the Youtube of powerpoint sites and is one of many Powerpoint sites that let you upload a powerpoint then embed on your site. Again you can create channels to get greater exposure. There are three types of presentations you can make.
Straight Powerpoint presentation
Digital Magazines for Business
Digital magazines are simply a PDF document formatted in a magazine layout. Many of the old ebooks could easily be converted to digital Magazines.
Many traditional magazines convert their content into digital format however they are hard to read on mobile or tablet screens.For this reason it is a lot better to simplify the page layout to allow these devices to read them as they tend to be the audience.
So you would make digital magazines single page each and only one or two column plus use slightly larger font size. This will assure easy reading on a variety of devices.
