  • Speaking Tour Brings Paid Content to the People

    Now that everyone has returned home from their summer vacations, Pivotshare thought it would be the perfect time for us to hit the road! The Pivotshare team has spent the summer building a variety of new tools to make it even easier for paid content creators to sell media directly to their audience. Anyone can use pay-per-view rentals, purchase downloads, channel-wide subscriptions, tip-jars or a combination of them all to create their own branded VOD storefront. We’re so excited about everything we have going on that we thought we’d stop by a few hot spots and tell the folks there how we Pivotshare is helping to change the way the world consumes media.

  • Art of Strength On Demand VOD Fitness Channel

    Anthony DiLuglio is serious when he says that his workouts can save your life. Probably because they literally saved his. In 2005, after already working as a successful trainer in the fitness industry, Anthony was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer which he was told could mean the loss of his leg or worse. His doctors had told him that he had a one in two-million chance of having malignant cancer, which unfortunately happened to be the case. But when the surgeons opened up his leg to remove the tumor, to their shock and amazement they discovered that his muscle tissue was too dense for the cancer to penetrate. His leg and his life were both saved, largely he believes, because of his innovative workout regimen.

  • Subscription Model for Video Platforms Smarter Than DVD Sales

    “I like DVDs so much. It’s such a better format than VHS.”

    -Roland Joffe

    America seems to have agreed with Roland, Hollywood heavyweight director of the Oscar-winning film, The Killing Fields, at least for a time. While everyone knows that DVD sales have been falling like a wet mattress since their 2007 peak at over $10 billion in annual revenue, things have slid so far that industry insiders now refuse to even make those figures public. For years, DVD sales predictions helped studios create realistic budgets, but the crash in popularity of this medium has driven studios to make safer and more predictable choices, such as sequals, franchises and reboots. The end result is a more bland cinematic experience for everyone and a far less creative environment for those who make films for a living.

  • Brand Protection and Paid Content

    Brand Protection and Paid Content

    Every year, companies throughout the country spend millions of dollars protecting their brands. From a marketing and a business standpoint, a company’s brand is one of its most important assets. The brand helps not only define the values of the company and its products, but becomes a beacon for consumer expectations of consistency and trustworthiness. When a brand has been established, it needs to be protected and consistently used in order to maintain relevance and power. The online paid content space is no exception to this need. But, for the longest time, most media platforms simply did not make it easy easy or affordable for medium and smaller-sized media producers to protect their brand when selling media online.
