We are proud to announce some layout improvements we've been making to your Pivotshare Channels, making them more stylish and much easier to navigate than ever before. Our updates have been strategically designed to give your customers a better branded experience than anywhere else.
Every once in a while, an online video channel powered by Pivotshare takes the basic premise of selling premium videos and does something really innovative with our platform to demonstrate what’s possible. In this case, we are proud to spotlight the Lineman Channel.
The first question you may be asking is: “What’s a Lineman?’ Linemen are the thousands of highly-trained individuals who maintain the complicated electrical systems and power grids that crisscross the entire U.S. These amazingly skilled tradespeople keep turned on what we take for granted everyday - electrical power. Imagine without power flowing, how paralyzed our society would become. In an effort to help create the next generation of Linemen, Pivotshare is proud to announce Linemanchannel.com.
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.
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.
