Opportunities in Orlando

Orlando is world-famous for it's theme parks and attractions. Over 65 million visitors annually - and growing. But there is a lot more to The City Beautiful than just theme parks. It's a growing home to entrepreneurs, high-tech, healthcare and manufacturing. It also is home to the new Dr. Phillips Performing Arts Center, numerous sports teams including the Orlando Magic and Major League Soccer's Orlando City Lions and an incredible variety of outdoor activities - from hiking, sailing, biking, fishing, swimming and much, much more.

In other words, we're quite proud to call Orlando home. With so much to offer businesses looking for a home to start, relocate or expand, it's no surprise the Orlando Economic Development Council decided to create a video that showcases this 'amazing place to live and do business.' Take a look:

We can attest to the life well lived in Orlando. Mike Forrester, President of Orlando Corporate Media, Inc., parent of Orlando Webcasts, is a fourth generation Floridian and Orlando native. While much of his career was spent working and living in other states, it took little incentive for him to define, develop and open a new business that allowed him to return to his home town. Orlando is like that. After all, there's a lot of magic in Orlando.

Orlando Webcasts can create a little magic with your next meeting, conference, town hall, training session or event.

Gain viewers even after your live event has ended

When consulting with clients prior to their live event, a standard question is 'what life will the event have after it has ended?' Many clients already know the answer, but some honestly had not thought beyond producing the event. Our suggestion: make the event video available for replay for those that missed the live presentation. 

There are several options that should be considered to maximize distribution. First, is the audience limited to employees, investors or other stakeholders, or is the content appropriate for anyone who wants to view the replay? Second, what is the best way to reach that audience?

For events with restricted viewership, we recommend keeping the event within our secure webcasting and webinar platform. Viewers must have appropriate logins, emails or passwords to enter and view the event. We archive our events for 6 months at no additional charge. Longer term archives are available when needed.

For events intended for or benefiting the general public and/or a wider targeted audience, there are several options available. If the event is on Facebook or YouTube, make sure the event is available for on-demand viewing once the live feed has concluded. Simply continue to promote the event at the same URL, page or channel.

For an even wider reach, post the video beyond the original platform. One service we use is Vimeo. Videos can be uploaded with descriptions, keywords, embedding and security options and more. Players can be customized, clickable calls-to-action enabled and detailed analytics reviewed.

Vimeo is a paid service, so it's ad-free and offers unlimited bandwidth for viewers to watch your videos. Another benefit is moving video storage off company servers and let Vimeo handle the heavy lifting. Vimeo Pro and Vimeo Business are recommended solutions to our clients that want a professional video presence online. Using Vimeo or similar services allow your live events to continue to gain viewers days, weeks and months after the event has ended.
