Hi there, I’m Adam, content manager here at Wyzowl – and I’m about to give you 5 reasons why you should use video to train your team.

1. It’ll boost work productivity

The traditional way to train typically involves creating a long-winded presentation that takes your team away from their desks for hours at a time. But with a video, you can teach your team what they need to know without having to be there. And they can individually watch the video when they have the time to do so, meaning a more efficient working day for everyone involved!

2. It’s always available

So you’ve spent all that time in a training session, only to find that 6 months later, only 10% of people will remember what was said?! By using video, your employees can have access to that training whenever they need to refresh their memories – and it won’t take up any room!

3. It’ll reduce business cost

A training program can cost a lot in expenses… especially if you’re having to pay for travel, food and somebody to head the session. But with a video it’s just a one-off payment and then you have a complete training session at your disposal!

4. It’s an effective way to explain what you do

If you want an effective way to teach your team about your product or service then look no further than a video. You could create a screen-recorded walkthrough of your software, or even create an engaging animated video to train employees on the benefits of your service!

5. Information is retained

Did you know that by watching a video, people are 65% more likely to retain that information because they can visualise the material on screen, rather than just imagine it? That means your employees are not gonna forget the stuff they need to know to do their job in a hurry! No brainer really isn’t it?

By creating a training video you can save a whole lot of time and money so get in touch today and let us help you get your team fully trained!
