Below are the slides from our presentation at the recent HBCUgrow LEAD Conference (AndiSites is a founding partner in HBCUgrow).

What Does It Cover?

  • The power of digital media.
  • Effective examples of using digital media for online storytelling.
  • Three techniques to improve your digital media.

What Are the Key Takeaways?

  • Tip #1:  If you can, hire a professional. If you can’t, take pictures yourself, but attend to details. Having some photos is better than having no photos. However, having no photos is better than having bad photos.
  • Tip #2:  Tell the story quickly (“Get deep quick.”). Respect people’s time. Be direct. Let them see more if they want to. Push more after building a relationship.
  • Tip #3:  Let the users drive. The beauty of the web is in its interactivity. Make an impact. No more brochure sites full of text.
