Got an idea for a video? Not so fast! While increased bandwidth and download speeds have helped to make video more popular than ever, it’s not always the best solution. In fact, sometimes a video can actually do more harm than good! In this webinar, Ken Circeo, a Senior Video Producer at Microsoft, will provide critical questions and a logical path to help you determine whether you should create a video for that beckoning issue, or whether to put your time and resources into other content types.  Join us on Thursday, June 4 at 3pm EDT (12noon PDT).
