Change.org has announced a deal with Wochit, the social video creation platform.
The deal will allow the online petition site to produce cost-effective but high-quality, social media-ready videos that can be used to highlight the latest campaigns.
Change.org says video is part of its strategy to increase social impact by using online video to drive higher engagement and build stronger emotional connections with the platform’s 150 million users around the world.
The completion of the deal follows a successful three-week pilot of the Wochit service, which saw the two organisations create and publish videos across social platforms in the UK, Germany and Italy. Change.org is now rolling Wochit out in Spain, France, Indonesia and the US, with more countries to follow.
Shareable video content
“We’ve been searching for a tool we can use to deliver high quality, highly shareable video content at pace and scale,” said John Coventry, global head of communications for Change.org.
“With Wochit’s tools and content library, we’re able to quickly, easily and effectively tell persuasive stories through video and amplify their impact through social channels. We’re just getting started, but early tests are promising and the future for our video content looks bright.”
