Online video consumption and purchases will double by 2016 according to Cisco, so getting the word out about your videos must include a holistic social media strategy. That means making sure your premium videos are promoted on Facebook - still the top dog among all social media networks. But is there an easy way to link non-YouTube videos with Facebook? Previously, the most common method of linking premium, purchasable video content was to simply post a link. Any links directed to YouTube would automatically display the YouTube video right on Facebook. But a link to a non-YouTube video would get you little more than an image on Facebook. Now there’s an easier way to promote and share your premium videos.
In the contemporary age of web marketing, it’s become increasingly important for brands to take center stage in everything they do. This need has led to many video platforms pulling the spotlight further and further away from their publishers’ brands and instead refocusing it on themselves. To combat this growing issue, Pivotshare has put increased emphasis on one of its core tenets that our publishers’ brands should shine above our own. That’s why we’ve developed the Pivotshare Customization Service—our simple process to better own and control your customers’ experience with your video content and brand.
Preparing for the upcoming holiday season, Pivotshare decided to give their clients an early gift by unveiling their complete channel design reboot this week. The company says they have gathered customer input from the last year of business and compiled this data to inform the design and UI directions that these new layouts took. Already known for the clean feel of their channels and unobtrusiveness of their embed player, Pivotshare hopes that this new design scheme will further differentiate the company in the market.
