Boston Video Tells The Story

boston marathon bombingThe Boston Marathon bombing has rightly captured the American people’s attention. It was a horrific attack and many of the images will be etched in our minds forever, and believe it or not there’s a lesson there for business leaders and marketing professionals.


I was talking with a friend yesterday who mentioned all the stories he had read, and all the photos he had seen covering the terrorist attack. His comment, “You know what, none of it compares to the video.”

He’s right. The explosion, the chaos, the heroes who stepped forward to help… the Boston video was awe-inspiring. It’s what video does better than any other medium. It transports the viewer to the scene.


Corporate leaders can take advantage of this ability as well. They can use video to transport customers and prospects to their business via the web.

Good video paired with a compelling story makes a great impression on people.
