Stay Up to Date with MemberWhen

Last week I introduced all of you to our newest products, MemberWhen Business Solutions. This week I’m going to get into the benefits of using audio content for your business, and how our customers have already been taking advantage of the increased engagement.  Increased Engagement Every company is always wondering “how can we increase engagement?” Content is usually the answer and can come in many different forms such as photos, videos, infographics, etc. An often forgotten form is audio which has proven to have some of the highest engagement rates and is a great way to deliver information to a user. Personality By adding audio content to a website, it adds personality and character to a company. Something that consumers look for when making a buying decision. By hearing directly from a founder,  CEO, or the leadership team, or the creator of a product, it allows users to be engaged, and connect with them on a personal level. Authenticity There is something very honest and authentic about audio. We capture voices through casual conversations that are directed by questions and topics from our storyographers. It’s not scripted, rehearsed, or overly practiced. It’s real. Videos are often driven by the visual element, what people look like, what is being displayed, and audio (the heart of the content) tends to take a back seat. Users get distracted by what they’re looking at and don’t focus on the purpose of what they’re watching. Audio delivers content in a no fuss, authentic way that allows users to easily comprehend.   Implementation This benefit is geared more towards the IT or web developers of a company, and I’m confident they’ll appreciate it. Audio is saved as an MP3 file which is very easily uploaded to most website content management systems such as WordPress. There are also advanced tracking options to see things like how long users listened for, when they paused, etc. Our tech team at MemberWhen can help with all of this when the time comes. Cost Effective One of the most important elements of content does tend to come down to cost. Businesses and more specifically marketing teams are often given a tight budget and struggle to do the best they can to get the most engaging content possible. MemberWhen has created a streamlined process that allows us to have competitive prices that won’t break the bank. We often find that our audio content rates are less than a ¼ of the budget needed for video - a major benefit for companies. For a full breakdown of what we offer, visit our business solutions page of our website. All solutions so far have been tested and are showing higher engagement rates than written and traditional content.

It’s been a little over two months since I began my journey working at MemberWhen, and I must say it has been an incredible two months. The team, the office, the vision, the mission, the passion, all of it comes together to be a great place to work. But what really got to me was the product. It can be difficult to explain the value of a MemberWhen audio story, especially to someone that hasn’t ever heard one before. So until I really dove in and listened to a few completed stories, I had no idea how powerful they were. I found myself so touched and even crying at times, listening to stories of people I didn’t even know. That’s impressive. Now it’s my job (literally) to make everyone else in the world aware of MemberWhen and the incredible ability we have to capture and record personal stories. (more…)
When you're a start-up, explaining who you are and what you do can be a challenge. That task becomes even harder when you’re a company with a brand new concept and product. So, it’s understandable that we have a bit of a tough time articulating exactly what our core product, our audio stories, our personal podcasts are. Finding the right words to describe a MemberWhen was easy, but defining it was a different story. We knew our invention contained elements of podcasts, documentaries, and personal diaries- but no single phrase seemed to capture the unique form of storytelling we had created. Plus, how do you name something that’s never existed before? Well, after many long chats and brainstorming sessions, we finally found the right title for our creation: personal podcast. An audio story that has many different categories and options to present your personal story or message, in the form of a podcast. (more…)
One of the questions we get asked the most is, "What is Skype and why do I need it?". We conduct conversations with people in 1 of 3 ways; Cell phone, home/office phone (landline) or Skype. Each method has pros and cons. Here is a short comparison of the various methods for having a conversation with our Storyographer. and provide clips of each method so you can hear the differences and decide which works best for you.
