Episode Highlights

The Challenge of Scheduling for Content Creation

The conversation begins with Justin Brown discussing the practical challenges of scheduling, particularly for busy professionals like CEOs and experts. He emphasizes the need for tools like Riverside’s asynchronous recording to facilitate content creation without traditional scheduling constraints. This capability allows for the inclusion of busy professionals in ongoing projects without disrupting their schedules.

“For us, one of the biggest pains that we see with our clients is that they’re very busy […] We’ve solved this problem in a few ways ourselves, and I’m sure we’ll get to that, as well. But in addition to our solves, it’s been great to see Riverside really ramp up their technology.”

The Introduction of Asynchronous Recording

Stephen Robles elaborates on the introduction of asynchronous recording features by Riverside, designed primarily to aid journalists and businesses in capturing testimonials or event accounts. This feature allows hosts to send recording links to anyone, enabling them to record at their convenience.

“But with async recording, you can create links that you can send out to anyone […] And that person by themselves will load that link in their web browser or mobile device, and they can record something and it will be uploaded to the account owner’s dashboard.”

Enhancing User Experience with Guided Processes

Robles discusses the user-friendly design of Riverside’s asynchronous recording interface, which includes animations and prompts to guide users through the recording process, making it accessible to users with varying levels of technical expertise.

“And every time you create a link, there’s a very easy pop up that comes up. You can title it, what is the general topic or theme, and then you can add bullet points or even a full script […] the recipient of that link […] they’ll be walked through the entire process.”

Expanding Riverside’s Asynchronous Applications

The discussion touches on further applications of asynchronous recording, such as conducting seamless asynchronous interviews where questions and answers are recorded separately and later combined. This method is especially useful for accommodating guests with restrictive schedules.

“That’s another great use case when you can’t synchronize your schedules, because obviously your guests might be very busy, but want to participate […] You ask the question, you can be in Riverside, record yourself asking the questions, just one right after another.”
