Where You Should be Using Video

Video is an awesome way to connect with your potential and existing customers on a personal level, almost like meeting them face-to-face. It’s the perfect tool to showcase your product and let your brand’s personality shine through.

Businesses that ace their video marketing game have figured out how to use video at different touchpoints across their customer journey. If you want to take your video marketing strategy to the next level, here’s where you should consider using video:

Your website’s landing pages
Blog posts
Your help center
Email campaigns
Your software application
Social media channels
the list goes on

Now, here’s where Wistia comes into play. Designed for marketers, Wistia provides all the video creation, hosting, sharing, and analytics tools your business needs to integrate video into the customer journey and attract, engage, nurture, and convert leads.

Ready to learn how to use Wistia to make your videos work harder for your business? Let’s get started!

How to Use Wistia in 6 Steps

Step 1: Upload your videos to Wistia.

It’s super easy to get your videos uploaded to Wistia. All you have to do is create a new Project in your account and choose the videos you want to upload to it. As soon as you’ve uploaded a video, it’s automatically transcribed and ready to be distributed anywhere you want your video to be seen.

Wistia’s recommended upload settings for video are:

MP4 file
H.264 codec
5,000–8,000 kbps target bitrate

Want to make the process even easier? You can seamlessly import videos straight from Descript, Zoom, and YouTube. These are just a few Wistia integrations that can help make your video workflow a breeze.

Create Videos in Wistia

Don’t have any videos to upload? No problem! You can create videos right in Wistia. Here are some of the things you can do:

Create short tutorials, video voicemails, or other talking head videos using Wistia’s screen and webcam recording feature.
Make simple edits to your videos with Wistia’s video editor: Trim out unnecessary parts, create shareable clips, add music, and more.
Host a webinar with Wistia Live, and then redistribute your recording.

Step 2: Customize your videos.

Wistia offers a variety of ways to customize your videos to not only deliver a great viewing experience, but also to help you reach your business goals.

You can customize your player color to match your branding, create a custom thumbnail to entice your audience to press the play button, add chapters to make it easy for your viewers to find the information they’re looking for, insert a Call to Action (CTA) to direct your viewers to an action you’d like them to take, and more.

You can make changes anytime, and your video will be updated wherever it’s embedded.

We also recommend making sure your videos are accessible to everyone. By enabling features like captions and audio descriptions, you can open the doors to a broader audience, allowing more people to enjoy your videos. With Wistia’s in-app accessibility checklist, it’s easier than ever to make video accessibility a seamless part of your workflow.

Step 3: Integrate HubSpot with Wistia.

Did you know that you can combine the powers of HubSpot and Wistia to seamlessly capture, track, and manage leads? You can also use this integration to embed your Wistia-hosted video into your emails and website.

If you have a HubSpot account and an Advanced or Premium Wistia software subscription plan, follow these steps to integrate both accounts:

Connect the HubSpot integration in your Wistia account. This allows Wistia to request your lists and forms and send leads and engagement data into HubSpot.
If you’re tracking a video, set up a Wistia email capture form (called Turnstile) or add a HubSpot form directly to the video. Turnstiles and HubSpot forms are how Wistia identifies users for proper tracking.
Embed your video on a page with a HubSpot tracking script. The Wistia player and HubSpot script work together to identify users and track their activity for display on HubSpot contact records.

The first step is usually a one-time thing, and thereafter you’ll only need to repeat the second and third steps for each video you want to track.

Step 4: Share your videos.

Whether you want to embed your videos somewhere, publish them on social, or send them to folks privately, Wistia makes it super simple to share your videos.

How to Display Your Wistia Videos

Embedding a Wistia-hosted video onto your website is a piece of cake.

All you need to do is open the Embed & Share window from your Media Page, choose your embed code type, fine-tune it, and then paste it onto your website.

There are two main types of Wistia embeds: inline embeds and popover embeds. Inline embeds will place the player directly on the page, in line with the rest of your content. Popover embeds display your video’s thumbnail in line, but play the video in a popover window when selected. The best part is that there’s no coding required.

Wistia Channels

Wistia Channels enables you to turn a collection of videos into a video gallery without a developer’s help. With just a simple embed code, you can take your recent webinars, a library of product videos, or a branded series (like a podcast) and display them as a beautiful, binge-able collection.

Embedding a Channel on your website is as simple as embedding a single video. Use an inline code when you want your Channel to show within the flow of your website, or use a popover code when you want to give your viewer a more immersive, full-window viewing experience.

More Ways to Share Your Videos

With Wistia’s Email Campaign Link feature, you can include your videos in your marketing emails and even track their success. Just grab the email merge tag Wistia generated specifically for your favorite email marketing provider and then paste it into the body of your email.

The Wistia + HubSpot integration makes embedding videos into your emails even easier. When you connect both accounts, you can access your Wistia video library in HubSpot using Media Bridge, select a Wistia video, and then embed it in a HubSpot email or web page.

Want to share your videos on social media? Use Wistia’s Publish to Social feature to connect Wistia to your Facebook, YouTube, and LinkedIn accounts and then directly upload your video content to these social networks.

Wistia’s integration with Hootsuite also lets you access your Wistia library from within the Hootsuite platform. It’s easy for you to find, schedule, and publish your Wistia-hosted video content to any social media channel via Hootsuite.

If you just want to share a video without making it available to everyone on the internet, no problem — simply grab a direct link to the video. The link will take folks to a media page you can customize to provide a branded viewing experience.

No matter how you share your Wistia videos, it’s easy to keep your content secure with privacy and security options. You can control access to your videos by password-protecting your video, sharing a private video link, or adding an email gate to your video or Channel.

Step 5: Generate leads.

Videos are a great way to generate leads for your business, and Wistia makes it easy to do so. With Turnstile, you can capture email addresses at any point in your video’s timeline.

If you’ve integrated HubSpot with Wistia, you can access your existing HubSpot forms in Wistia and add them to your videos. You can capture leads with your videos and pass detailed viewing data into your HubSpot customer relationship management system (CRM). Then score, segment, and assign leads in a flash based on video triggers.

Generating Leads with Wistia’s Live Event Registration

If you set up a webinar or a live-streamed event with Wistia, it’s easy to see who registered, who attended, and who was the most engaged.

When you enable registration, Wistia automatically creates a landing page for your event so you can collect sign-up information like names and email addresses. If you’ve integrated HubSpot with Wistia, those contacts get passed right from your registration page to HubSpot. Now, you can also use HubSpot forms right on your registration page.

As soon as your webinar or live stream is over, your audience can watch it on demand. Whether you include a link to your webinar recording in an email blast or create a landing page to host your on-demand webinars, the leads can keep flowing in.

Step 6: Track your videos’ performance.

Lastly, Wistia’s detailed analytics can help you strengthen your video marketing strategy over time. You’ll get insights into who’s watching your videos, how much they’re watching, and which ones provide the most value for your business.

Engagement Graphs

Wistia’s engagement graphs show how your audience consumes your content. You can see which sections of your media your audience replayed multiple times and where they stopped playing, with drop-offs indicating when attention waned and big spikes revealing sections that people found compelling enough to replay.

Analytics by Embed Location

To understand how your video is performing based on where it lives on your site, you can view media analytics by embed location.

All you need to do is head to the Media Analytics Overview page and scroll down. From there, you’ll see metrics like plays, play rate, time played, engagement, unique visitors, and conversion rate for each embed location during the date range you’ve selected at the top of the page.


Wistia heatmaps show precisely which parts of your video each individual viewer has watched, skipped, and rewatched.

With the Wistia + HubSpot integration, Wistia heatmaps will appear in your contact timeline. You can also see how many videos a HubSpot contact has watched. Once a contact has filled out a HubSpot form anywhere on your website, all their viewing data for any video on your site is added to their contact card in HubSpot.

With these insights, you can build email workflows that automatically contact your most engaged viewers. What’s more, your sales team will get a complete view of their leads’ interactions and the integration will proactively alert them when their leads are watching key videos so they can reach out at optimal times.

Make Your Videos Work Harder for You

If you’ve made it to the end of this article, congrats! You’ve just upped your video marketing game. We hope you’re inspired to start doing more with video for your business. And when you’re cooking with HubSpot and Wistia, you’ve got the perfect recipe for video success!

31 Google Search Statistics to Bookmark ASAP

Google owns just a bit more than 92% of the global search engine market, which means it is a significant driver of how people look for, and find, information on the internet.

In this post, discover key Google search statistics that will help you understand more about how search words, search trends, and how Google search adapts to changing technologies.

How To Find Trending Searches

Google’s nearest competitor, Bing, only holds 2.9% of market share, while Yahoo accounts for 1.1%. The distribution has remained relatively stable over the past few years with Google consistently claiming competitive victory thanks to detailed search results, in-depth analytics, and evolving service offerings.

Consider the rapid uptake of “Google” as a verb meaning, “to search” — “I’ll just Google it,” “can’t you Google that?” “isn’t it on Google?” It’s not an exaggeration to say that when it comes to searching for information online, Google is — by far — the digital frontrunner.

Google also makes efforts to personalize search results, in turn, increasing the chances that users will opt for Google the next time they have a question. For users that aren’t logged into a Gmail or another Google account, the company uses anonymously stored browser cookies to get a sense of search histories and preferences.

For users signed into their Google account, Chrome’s browser history provides the data necessary for Google to construct a profile based on age, language preference, gender and search preferences, which informs the type of search results returned. Location offers an easy example of this approach — if users have location services turned on, Google search results will be filtered by geographic location to increase overall relevance.

Now, let’s look at a few of this year’s top Google Search statistics and take a deeper dive into the trending searches that guide your marketing strategy.

With search volumes constantly fluctuating in response to world events and evolving news coverage, it’s worth knowing what searches are trending, how quickly they’re ramping up, and how they tie into similar keyword queries.

While one option is a scattershot approach — simply type a potential trend term into Google and see how many total results are reported — more targeted options often provide an easier path to improved search performance.

Let’s review some of the most useful tools available in the section below.

1. Google Trends

Review the “Year in Search,” take Google Trends lessons, and see what’s trending now. You can also view the peaks and valleys of topic interest over time, which uncovers seasonality and allows you to plan your marketing calendar accordingly. Plus, find related topics and queries, and identify sub-regions your topic has been trending to better target your campaigns.

2. Think with Google

Discover articles, benchmark reports, and consumer insights that keep you up to speed on search. From ad bidding strategies to brand jingles, you’ll find interesting content that helps you think bigger while staying educated on how to leverage Google search for your business.

3. Twitter

Sign on to Twitter for more than vaguely hostile political debates. Use the “trends” feature to uncover what’s trending in your state, country, or around the globe. When you click into a trend, you’ll see top tweets about the topic, relevant news stories, and live responses as well.

4. BuzzSumo

Identify the most shared content in the previous 12 months or the last 24 hours with BuzzSumo. BuzzSumo allows you to drill down and analyze the topics that matter to your industry, your competitors, and the influencers you learn from.

5. Feedly

This RSS feed aggregator allows you to follow your favorite brands and see their most recent content in one place. Add your favorites and discover new publishers by searching your industry, skills, or — you guessed it — trending topics. Feedly also allows you to set up keyword alerts, so you’re always tracking the latest trends on topics you’re interested in.

6. Reddit

Freshness and user-based voting determine how content is prioritized on Reddit. A quick visit to the homepage shows you trending or popular posts. And, you can filter by country or recency for a more relevant feed.

7. Ahrefs

Conduct competitive research, home in on a keyword, or search for trending topics. Ahrefs helps you identify trending content and shows you what to do to outrank your competitors.

8. Pocket

Pocket allows you to save content from anywhere on the web. Review your content whenever you wish and head to the Explore page to find trending topics that are relevant to you.

9. Quora

Sign up for Quora and select topic areas that interest you (e.g., “startups,” “marketing,” and “economics”). Quora will stock your feed with questions related to your content interests. This gives you insight into what your customers are asking, real-time debates about competitors, and even allows you to answer questions about topics you have experience in.

Expanding Your Google Impact

Bottom line? Google owns the largest piece of both search and web browser market shares and provides a host of interconnected services that empower the company to deliver personalized, real-time search results.

For marketers, this makes Google an irreplaceable tool for boosting consumer loyalty, courting new clients, and improving customer conversions. Armed with actionable trend data and relevant source statistics, marketing teams can expand their Google impact and ensure the right content gets seen by the right customers to jumpstart the sales process.

How to Write the Perfect Project Manager Resume

Writing a perfect resume is one of the most important “projects” you’ll do as a project manager. Nail it, and you will make a great first impression and seal your role as a project manager with your preferred company.

In this article, you’ll learn how to write a project manager resume that impresses hiring managers.

Whether you’re a seasoned or entry-level project management professional, this guide will help you create an outstanding resume that lands your dream role.

Let’s get started.

How to Write a Project Manager Resume That Gets You Hired

Project Manager Resume Examples

How to Write a Project Manager Resume That Gets You Hired

When finding a job as a project manager, you’ll compete with other candidates for your recruiter’s attention. To help you win, we’ve created nine steps you can use to write your project manager resume.

1. Use the right resume layout.

Most recruiters like reverse chronological resumes.

Besides having an orderly work history with the most recent job displayed first, chronological resumes let recruiters identify gaps in a candidate’s work history and spot any unrelated experiences. Here’s how that looks:

Image Source

In certain scenarios, different layouts like the functional and combination resume might be ideal. While functional resumes highlight your most relevant skills, combination resumes let you show both your skills and work experience.

Below are segments of people whose resumes might fit the functional and combination layouts:

Project managers who haven’t worked in the industry for a while.
Individuals who want to transition into a project manager role.
People who changed careers multiple times.
Recent graduate project managers.
Individuals who job hop frequently.
Freelance project managers.

Irrespective of your resume layout, you’ll want to limit unnecessary whitespace by using columns when writing your resume. This allows you to cut down the number of pages for your resume.

Using colors to segment each section of your resume is also a best practice that makes it easier for recruiters to navigate to specific sections.

Pro Tips

Make your resume scannable by using bullet points.
Try to fit your resume into one or two pages with font sizes 11-12 for body text and 14-16 for section headings.
Use the best resume fonts like Times New Roman and Helvetica to make your resume readable.
Save your resume in PDF format, so it stays the same on all devices used by recruiters.
Use resume templates to save time when picking a format.

2. Add your contact information.

How recruiters choose to contact candidates varies. Some may prefer using social media. Others may want to call or email. For this reason, add all of your contact information to your resume.

This includes your phone number, email address, location, and links to your social media profiles.

Pro Tips

Include the country code to your phone number. This makes it easy for hiring managers to contact you if they’re not in your country. For instance, if you’re in the US, enter the US country code (+1) like this +1 XXX-XYZ-XXXX.
Have an account on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter so that recruiters can contact you using their preferred social media platform.

3. Write a punchy resume summary.

After your name, your resume summary is what most recruiters will read next. You need to write it well. In fact, treat your resume summary like a news headline.


If it’s interesting, it’ll grab the recruiter’s attention, and they’ll keep reading to learn more about you.

Here are some tips for writing a captivating resume summary:

Use industry buzzwords.
Mention your years of experience.
State your most relevant certification.
Ensure your resume summary is descriptive.
Keep your resume summary short (3 to 5 lines).
Be specific when talking about professional outcomes.
Mention a few of your relevant project management skills.

Here’s an example of an interesting resume summary from Milo Cruz, CMO of Freelance Writing Jobs.

4. Ensure you use the right keywords.

Recruiters often use Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) to filter unfit resumes. They do this by scanning lots of resumes for keywords that relate to the job description.

After the scan, the ATS software recommends the top applicants, enabling recruiters to reduce the number of candidates they need to interview.

Put another way, a recruiter may not see your project manager resume if an ATS software screens it out because it lacks job-specific keywords. To prevent this, here are some keywords to remember when creating your project manager resume.

52 Project Manager Resume Keywords

PMP certification
Stakeholder management
Budget management
Team management
Effective communication
Project planning
Change management
Leadership engagement
Resource allocation
Project management software
Project scheduling
Issue resolution
Scope management
Project coordination
Project tracking
Vendor management
Daily stand-ups
MS Office Suite
Contract management
Project status report
Milestone tracking
Resource planning
Change control
Project initiation
Schedule tracking
Budget tracking
Project execution
Performance reporting
Project review
Process improvement
Risk mitigation
Quality assurance
Resource optimization
Budget optimization
Conflict resolution
Data analysis
Project evaluation
Cost-benefit analysis
Team building
Project risk identification
Project risk analysis
Prince 2

Pro Tips

Get creative, and try to use the same keywords in the job description.
If a keyword appears multiple times in a job description, try to use it in your resume.

5. Discuss relevant results in your work experience.

When writing your work experience, you must show what you can bring to the table by being specific about what you achieved in previous roles.

If you’re a new or transitioning project manager, you can talk about what you’ve done in other areas of your life or your former industry.

The bottom line is that recruiters want to see how your former results relate to the open role. The best way to do this is to get specific and quantify everything.

Consider the following questions.

How long did a project last?
When did a project start and end?
What percentage of goal deadlines did you achieve?
What’s the exact amount of budget you worked with?
How many people did you work within your team?
How much revenue did you help generate?

These questions have numerical elements. Numbers help you get specific, and that’s what project management is all about.

For instance, don’t say, “Delivered assistance to the Human Resources Department by training new employees; provided 6 to 8 hours of training monthly.”

Instead, say, “Assisted the Human Resources Department by providing 6 to 8 hours of monthly training for 57 new employees.”

Mentioning the hours and the number of employees you trained monthly shows you’re valuable as a project leader and team player.

6. Add your education to your resume.

The education section of your project manager resume should be brief. Remember, what matters more is your experience.

When writing about your education, start with your highest degree. Then, list your degree name, institution, institution location, and years attended. Here’s an example.

Master of Science in Project Management

Fairfax University, USA
09/2022 – 06/2024

BSc in Business Administration (Concentration in Project Management)
South College, USA

09/2018 – 06/2022

7. List your project management skills relevant to the role.

As a veteran or entry-level project manager, you may have many project management skills. Unfortunately, you can’t list them all in your resume. So, identify and write the top skills that show your professional competence.

Before listing your project management skills, read the job description to find skills the hiring manager wants and list them first.

Afterward, include other project management skills relevant to your industry, like construction, IT, marketing, finance, or manufacturing.

Here are some general project management skills to consider including in your resume.

33 Project Management Skills

Time management
Conflict Resolution
Public Speaking
Critical thinking
Goal Setting
Microsoft Office
Persuasive skills
Strategic Planning
Statistical Analysis
Risk Management
Vendor Management
Process Management
Database Management
Financial Management
Contract Management
Project Management Methodologies
Project Management Software Proficiency

8. Include any project management certifications you have.

Certifications are a plus when you’re applying for a project management position. Aside from differentiating you from other candidates, they can help you seal a role and earn you 16% more salary.

It’s best to list your certifications chronologically. Here’s an example:

Lean Six Sigma Green Belt certification program – Awarding Institution (2023)

PRINCE2 Certification – Awarding Institution (2022)

Project Management Professional (PMP)® certification – Awarding Institution (2021)

9. Proofread your resume.

Having errors in your resume won’t look good on you. It makes you give the hiring manager a poor first impression, and it shows a lack of attention to detail.

To avert these, use editing software like Grammarly, Pro Writing Aid, and Hemingway Editor to proofread your resume.

Project Manager Resume Examples

Now that you know the steps for writing a project manager resume, let’s review some examples you can use for inspiration.

1. Entry-Level Project Manager Resume

You don’t need a decade of experience to craft a killer resume. Let’s dive into the example above. The summary shows the candidate’s experience while using many keywords relevant to any project management role.

Plus, mentioning a PMP certification shows the candidate is open to honing their project manager skills.

The certification section also shows the candidate’s self-development drive as a project manager. These callouts show the candidate is serious about the field, even if they’re at the early stages of their career.

What we like: The certification section shows the candidate’s self-development drive as a project manager.

2. Construction Project Manager Resume

If you’re applying for a role in a specific field, be sure to include your relevant experience. Take a look at the resume above. The project manager’s skills and experience apply to the construction industry.

The resume also includes industry-relevant keywords like OSHA and AutoCAD.

What we like: Even with their extensive work and industry experience, the candidate fits all of their accomplishments into one page.

3. Technical Project Manager Resume

When applying for a role, keep applicant tracking systems (ATS) in mind. The resume above includes relevant technical skills that can help the candidate get through the initial screening.

The summary shows the candidate’s years of experience and highlights a few of their skills. Further, the summary shows the candidate’s years of experience and highlights a few of their skills.

Note: This resume is two pages. A longer resume is only appropriate when applying for more senior roles. Learn more about resume length.

4. IT Project Manager Resume

Before you hit submit, take the time to customize your resume for the role. Above, the candidate personalizes the resume by calling out the organization in the summary section.

Further, the resume contains skills that apply to IT, all in a format that’s easy to read.

What we like: The work experience highlights specific outcomes using percentages and revenue.

5. Architectural Project Manager Resume

Annabelle Jackson’s resume tells a story. Her experience section shows how her career has evolved — progressing from an architect to a project manager.

The work experience section uses numbers, percentages, and revenue to show specific outcomes.

What we love: Jackson calls out that she has industry experience as a practitioner. If you’ve worked on the execution and project management side of a business, call out both skill sets.

Become a Project Manager With a Winning Resume

Now that you know how to write your project manager resume and have inspiration from the above examples, it’s time to consider all the elements of your resume and begin writing.

Here’s a recap of what you need to write a winning resume:

Keep your resume design minimal.
Use the chronological resume format.
Your resume fonts should be easy to read.
Write specific outcomes in your experience section.
Include job-specific keywords and skills in your resume.
Include any certification that can give you an edge over other candidates.
Highlight your best achievements and succinctly describe yourself in your resume summary.

The Key to Improving the Economy? Marketing to Women

It’s been a summer for the girls, at least from an economic perspective. Content that drew predominantly female audiences has ruled the box office and live events space:

Greta Gerwig’s Barbie has earned over $1.28B at the box office since its release in July
Beyoncé’s Renaissance tour impacted inflation rates in the U.K. and Sweden and is expected to bring in over $2B, the highest generated by a female act
Taylor Swift’s Eras tour has already earned $1B and is expected to help circulate $5B across the global economy

Major publications have attributed this renaissance (pun intended) of female consumer spending influenced to shifting post-pandemic habits but in reality, it’s been in the works for more than a decade.

From an economic standpoint…

Women have held a lot of economic power for years, they were just spending money differently. It’s been widely reported that for women with children, roughly 90% of their income goes back to their families. A staggering statistic compared to their male counterparts, who typically contribute 30-40% of their income back to their families.

Per the Wall Street Journal, major demographic shifts are impacting how women now spend money including:

More women opting to have children later in life, if at all
Higher workforce participation and wage increases compared to the prior decade
Evolving gender roles in the household

In other words, women have more money and more agency over how they spend it than ever before, and female audiences are spending on goods and experiences that align with their personal interests.

Women-centered Marketing

It’s no wonder Barbie, Beyoncé, and Taylor Swift have seen so much success — all three have effectively used women-centered marketing.

Even before audiences knew that the Barbie movie’s plot was about examining the patriarchy, the marketing was clearly geared towards a female audience. Viewers were drawn in by the numerous cross-collaborations with their favorite brands, a catchy theme song that was trending on TikTok for most of the summer, and sheer nostalgia over their own childhoods.

Beyoncé and Taylor Swift, arguably two of the most popular musicians on the planet with extensive music catalogs focused on women’s empowerment, used social media to rally their predominantly female audiences around their subsequent tours.

Not only have they had some of the highest-grossing tours in history, but their audiences have also pumped millions of dollars into local economies at every stop. After all, fans aren’t just shelling out money for tickets. They’re also paying for travel accommodations, (often sparkly) clothing, and other goods and services to enhance their concert-going experience. The economic domino effect across industries is hard to ignore.

It’s not just entertainment, women’s sports have also had a record-breaking year:

The first half of this year’s WNBA season has drawn record viewers and sponsorships
