It would be fair to say at the time of writing this that we are living in unprecedented times. Covid-19 has forced many of us indoors and we are being asked to make temporary (fingers crossed) changes to our lifestyles. This applies to the vast majority of business, big or small.
However, you could argue that fortunately we couldn’t be better suited to ‘keep the show going on’ with business commanding such a strong online presence in the social media era. We all use a range of apps, sites and companies to help produce and share content. I’m going to give you a quick guide to Headliner, one I’ve picked out that you may not have heard of before, to help maintain and even improve your online presence as we navigate through this period of social distancing.
Headliner is an online video producing site, allowing you to bring all sorts of content to life, be it visual or audio. It’s relatively straightforward to use and more importantly, free, although there is a premium option, should you wish to sign up.
