Product Manager for 6 Seconds
Today, the growth of online video consumption is significantly increasing. For example, 190 million Americans (61% of the total population) watched an average of 397 online videos in the month of January 2014 [source]. Videos are visual with narration & audio so they package more information in less time compared to written content.
From a creator preservative, the problem with videos is that, to keep a good quality level, they are so tiring to produce and creating them is a lengthy process.
Luckily, with the lunch of Vine -6-second videos- a new type of videos was invented that nearly solved this problem in a creative way! .. That inspired me to launch “Product Manager for 6 Seconds” Vine series!
“Product Manager for 6 Seconds #PM46Sec” is a series of Vines, showing the concepts of “Product Management”, tips, notes & thoughts, in a very short way -literally-!
Why a Vine?
- It’s Video — A picture is worth 1,000 words, what about a video?
- It’s Short — Well, very short, up to 6 seconds.
- It Loops — So, it’s like a lesson that repeats itself until being understood.
Well, yes, (6 Seconds) is a tough challenge!
- How to transmit a meaningful message in 6 seconds?
- Will people find it appealing or silly?
So I decided to take that challenge but “not alone”. You are all invited to participate in “Product Manager for 6 Seconds” series using this hashtag #PM46Sec on Vine.
Share a tip, a note, a thought or anything related to your Product Management experience but in 6 seconds! ;) … and don’t forget to add the hashtag #PM46Sec :)
And here is my first #PM46Sec Vine:
Who is the Product Manager (PM)? — “A PM is the person, who ships the product at the right time, while making everyone happy*, including customers.”
*Well, you can’t make everyone happy but you do your best!
