Vimeo: Lessons in customer care and community

In my post I shared my negative experiences with Vimeo. In this video I look at the lessons we can all learn about handling customers and engaging with communities.

I believe in learning from every experience whether positive or negative. I therefore thought it only appropriate to ask myself what I (and by extension every other website owner) can learn from the mistakes of Vimeo.

And of course I simply had to share my thoughts in a ‘non commercial’ video format ;-)

Alternatives to Vimeo

Several people have asked me where they can move their videos to avoid Vimeo’s draconian and erratic policies.

If you video is truly ‘non-commerical’ and your concern is not Vimeo’s commercial policy but its limitations on where your video can be displayed then I would recommend Viddler.

However, if like me some of your videos do have commercial content then I would recommend Vzaar which is essentially Vimeo for business. That is where I have moved and have so far been impressed.
