The back-to-school sales are on and it seems everyone is gearing up for a new year.

It’s a great time for businesses to do the same. It may not be the beginning of a shiny new school year for us, but it is the end of a fiscal year and the perfect time to look forward. There is nothing quite like a fourth quarter review to help spur new ideas and start the planning process.

Power Point is the business standard. Everyone uses it. The question is whether it is the best choice for your project or just the most common. Sometimes Power Point limits your options.

We were approached by a client who was using a Power Point Presentation, but needed something more. The result was an award-winning video that reached a broader audience with a more comprehensive message.

Anytime you want immediate contact with your audience. Here are 14 great times to use it for maximum results:

  1. eMail Invitations (to events, conferences, conventions, fly-ins, meetings and more)
  2. Sales & Marketing
  3. Recruiting
  4. Employee Morale
  5. Internal Communications

Video Solutions was proud to capture the great work of Rebuilding Together - Alexandria, an Alexandria-focused nonprofit organization that is dedicated to donating home repairs to the in-need families in the city. Our crews followed volunteers on National Rebuilding Day and documented their work for a video that will be shown at the organization's annual meeting.

Rebuilding Together is a nationwide home repair and rehabilitation initiative dedicated to keeping low-income homeowners living in safety, warmth, and independence through volunteer services. They provide repair services throughout the year and actively seek volunteers and donations to meet the need.

It was great to see them in action in our own community.
