We just reported our fourth quarter 2010 performance, Granicus Continues Rapid Growth in the Open Government Market. It calls attention to some exciting momentum that’s building in the open government market and accelerating the growth of our new cloud platform and product suites.
Are you looking for a way to distribute your videos across multiple pages on your website, beyond just the archive library you’ve created with Granicus? This is actually proven to be one of the top ways to attract more visitors to your content—we discussed this in a recent webinar, Webinar Highlights: Keys to Success with Government Video.
This post will show you how to use the Granicus Platform to do this. And, for end-users that just want to share already published government content on their own websites—there’s a tip in here for you too!
Yesterday, we hosted a very successful webinar to showcase how federal advisory committees are increasing the transparency, accessibility, and openness of their public meetings with the latest technologies from Granicus.
Nearly 70 managers were able to participate and see best practices from federal agencies like the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, National Institute of Standards of Technology, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, and others that have implemented Granicus solutions.
As more and more technology providers and developers hit the market, we often get the question “what differentiates Granicus from the rest and keeps governments adopting our platform at an accelerated rate?” There is a short and long list of reasons. Today, I’ll try to offer some advice to help guide government professionals who are considering a solution to increase transparency, citizen participation, and efficiency choose the right platform, for the right reasons.
As the need for real-time exposure to information grows, government PR and communications professionals should start to re-evaluate their plan of attack for press releases and public announcements. After handling all Granicus PR efforts and working with PIO’s and publicly directors at all levels of government, I’ve come to realize the importance of ensuring your public announcements give audiences something more transparent than just text—linking to a live or archived video is quickly becoming the new standard.
Did you know that every month, the Granicus Training Department offers eight or more FREE live webinar classes to help you succeed and to learn about new features and functions available with your Granicus solution? We are committed to helping you take your transparency, efficiency, and training efforts to new heights, and these classes are a fantastic way to take advantage of our industry-leading customer care and training offerings.
Through the years I've trained hundreds of people on how to use their Granicus solution. I thought it would be useful to summarize a few words of wisdom for clients just getting started with your Granicus solution. For new clients, long-time clients, or for those of you who are considering joining the family, there are a few tid-bits in here for you! After all, it's always good to learn new techniques to improve your workflow, increase transparency, and maybe even help the environment with publishing paperless agenda packets.
