Module 3 - How to Add a Button In Your EVP Video Player (client version)
In this video you'll learn how easy it is to embed a hotspot button inside your EVP software.
Hotspot buttons are powerful in-context video objects that can help you trigger calls to action at certain cue points in your web video or screencast. In fact, if you choose to, you can make any image appear at designated cue points. They don't have to be buttons at all.
Here are some ideas for hotspot images:
- Business development professionals: Place your client's or prospect's company logo at a timed cue point in order to add a personal touch to a video proposal. Associate a hotspot to it that navigates your prospect to your contact page. (Tip: Create different video display profiles for different clients or prospects. With video display profiles, you can show different images or calls to action to different audiences while using the same video. I'll show you how to do that in an upcoming training video.)
- Real estate agents: Make one generic pre-listing presentation that introduces your services to prospective listing clients. Then, through the video display profile feature, customize your pre-listing video for your prospect by overlaying a picture of their property; associate a hotspot with the picture to navigate prospects to your user voice website or online CRM lead capture page.
- Small practice health care professionals: Personalize a welcome video for visitors to your website while overlaying a hotspot button at a certain cue point that navigates visitors to your appointment scheduler or contact page.
- Trainers, authors, speakers: Publish a free training video teaser series that uses a sequence of "Next" and/or "Previous" buttons linking each video in the series to one another. (Note: You can even limit public sharing of your training videos via the Security feature. This feature allows you to designate only certain website domains in which your videos are authorized to play. I'll show this feature in a future training video.)
The possibilities are limited only by your imagination and business sense. Take a look at the video and see how to easily make a web video with an embedded hotspot button or image.
Outside of the three examples I listed above, what other ideas for hotspot video buttons are you willing to share?
