In today’s episode of the Engage Video Marketing podcast, I’m going to be exploring this concept of a ‘video first’ way of doing business with my guest, Paul Mortimer.
Paul has extensive knowledge on video-first ways of operating as a business, going beyond just marketing and sales use cases. He talks about topics including how we transformed our business with video and asynchronous video communication.
