Not all crises can be predicted. Some we see coming from the distance, others come out of the blue. Some are of our own making; others are beyond our control. Smart brands invest over the long term to build brand equity and draw down on it in a time of crisis. Even smarter brands have digital asset management solutions to allow them to control their narrative, no matter what the emergency. Here are just a few reasons why, if you haven't set up a digital asset management solution for your organisation, business or brand, you need to do it today.
Your customers' mobiles and laptops are your new showrooms, stores and boardrooms. They're your smiling and attentive team. Now is the time to build a strategy using visual storytelling to continue to reflect your offer, vision, professionalism, culture and humanity.
Bring your culture and brand values into their living rooms and home offices using visual storytelling.
The investments you've previously made in commissioning and creating your digital assets can help you continue to tell stories where people are still the focus. Your digital asset management solution is your single source of truth that guarantees you can easily access the assets you need to tell your story, no matter what lies ahead.
Remote access - work from anywhere
While your people may be socially isolated, they are still connected. Your digital asset management solution allows them to work remotely, accessing the digital assets they need to remain productive. It allows them to work with outside teams and maintain brand standards and consistency of messaging.
Centralise control and security
In a time of crisis, relationships with external providers of content can fracture and break. You may even have to make decisions to reorganize your internal team. You'll only have certainty if you maintain centralised, secure control over the assets you have invested in so heavily over time. Your digital asset management is the best way to ensure that you maintain control over your branding and messaging when working remotely.
Use what you already have
In a time of crisis, you may not have the time, resources or access to create new images or videos. Repurpose your existing images, videos and brand assets to stay connected. Your digital assets management solution is unlike other file management solutions. It allows for easier discovery, allowing you and your team quickly to unearth previously unused or underused digital assets that can be readily repurposed to meet your current communication needs.
Pivot at a moment's notice
In a crisis, response times are everything. There may be a fleeting moment when you can make a difference. Your digital asset management solution allows you to respond rapidly by enabling teams to access the resources they need to communicate with those who matter. From website updates to emails, MMS, social media, sales and presentations documents and videos, webinars and podcasts, visual content drives every aspect of how we connect. Ensure you and your team can respond faster using the digital assets you already have today, using your digital asset management solution.
