Vidicom CEO Christy Ferer says progress is being made in Lower Manhattan regarding the construction and rebuilding of the 9/11 Memorial Museum. After Hurricane Sandy, the 22 million gallons of water that flooded the museum site damaged the construction and was a serious setback.
Thankfully, many of the large artifacts accumulated from the wreckage debris that were slated to be displayed in the museum were unharmed. Most were kept in storage, as the construction was placed on hold due to various controversies regarding the matter. Christy believes, as do many others, that this was a blessing in disguise, allowing the artifacts to maintain their ability to present a story.

It’s been an honorable and trying mission to create a sacred place within this museum for those who’ve lost loved ones. Mike Bloomberg and Christy Ferer have been discussing and acting upon how these artifacts can best address the public, and present their unique messages.

Here’s an interesting article that Christy Ferer came across:
PR Newswire has released the results of its second deep dive analysis of its press release data, revealing once again that press releases that include multimedia assets garner significantly more visibility than text-only releases — up to 9.7 times more.
Following a 2011 study, PR Newswire’s 2012 study examined data from PRNewswire.com via Adobe SiteCatalyst. PR Newswire’s web analytics team analyzed thousands of press releases published in 2011 and 2012 to determine the impact that adding photos, videos and other downloadable content has on levels of engagement with press releases.
The data shows that simply adding a photo to a text-only press release increases visibility by 1.8 times, while adding a video to a text-only release delivers 4.3 times the number of views. Including both photo and video content further enhances a story, driving visibility by 7.4 times more than plain text releases. To read more, click on the link above.
