Godolphin – a case study

The following is a brief introduction to our Godolphin Case Study which can be viewed in full below. 

Introducing a more streamlined, user-friendly system has enabled Godolphin’s global teams to find and share content easily. Managing content is now straightforward — anyone can find the pictures and videos they need for marketing collateral, when they need it, and so much faster!

“The personal touch from Philippe, Zsolt and George in teaching us how to use the system and fixing a couple of network errors has been incredible. Their support in helping us meet Godolphin’s needs confirms that we made the right choice in Overcast.”

Alexandra Bailey, Media Manager, CPL

The Challenge: 

Having four different storage systems led to several inefficiencies, including remembering how to use each platform and where to find assets.

“We needed a really good filing system that met people’s expectations when they were searching and didn’t lead them down a massive rabbit hole.”

The Solution: 

During the planning phase, Overcast worked with Godolphin and CPL to standardise the descriptive metadata fields across the four platforms. They then introduced a unique ID system and built an ingest solution using APIs that could map all of the intelligence into a single, unified system.

The Result for Godolphin:

Time-saving: Content is ingested from around the world in real-time. 

Cost Saving: The consolidation from four separate platforms to one has reduced subscription fees, training people to use them, and overheads required.  

Security: Content is centralised in a single location so it can never go missing, and the content is accessed through a secure login. 

Revenue:  With more people being able to access more images, the plan over the coming years for Godolphin is to drive sales using more sophisticated content marketing.

Why Video Marketing?

Marketing has always been a core element of business success and it continues to evolve as social media expands with new social platforms being added to the mix.

TikTok has shaken up the video marketing landscape over the past few years and more US marketers now use TikTok than YouTube for influencer marketing, but TikTok still sees significantly lower usage than Instagram (eMarketer, Dec 2021).

Solutions to Creating and Distributing Enterprise Video

The Creator Economy has generated a video-first approach for creators. This offers a wealth of opportunities to enterprises. However, it also creates several challenges. The first one relates to the creation of the video content: interest outpaces ability.

The Impact of the Creator Economy

In our last post, we looked at the rise of the Creator Economy. Now, let’s take a look at its impact.

This revolutionary phenomenon means that people who create content — from filmmakers to musicians — get funded directly by their audience. This has the disruptive impact of removing the traditional middlemen like record labels, film/TV commissioners, and publishers.

This has created amazing opportunities for content creators.

The Rise of the Creator Economy

There was a time when the phrase “Lights, Camera, Action” was only heard within the exclusive walls of Hollywood studios. Not so these days!

The past two decades have seen the rise of the Creator Economy…the lowering of technological barriers facilitates anyone to generate an income through delivering content to an audience.

Social media enables access to audiences without the need to go through a broadcaster or publisher.

But creators need access to technological tools to streamline the process of making fab content.

The Demand for Remote-Enabling Video Technology

Practically everyone owns a smartphone these days; therefore, we all carry a mini computer in our pockets. But, more than that, phones can record video clips and you can edit that footage through apps; so, effectively, we are all walking around with full video production capabilities.

So, armed with this portable video technology, it must be a piece of cake to make professional-looking videos, right?
