  • Grand Opening Events
  • Contests
  • Vehicle Walk Arounds
  • New Product Reviews
  • New Owner’s Clinic

Live video is good for face-to-camera videos with your sales team, as well as live-action shots from events and staged studio broadcasts. Use live video when you want to reach a lot of people quickly or in real time, script a marketing message, experiment, and track results.
