4 Video Hosting Platforms to Enhance Marketing Strategy – vía @kuno


There is no doubt the use of online video is rising. With amount of people uploading and sharing at an all-time high, there is no reason not to start using online video. So then the question becomes where will you put these videos you create?

Videos are large files, so you are going to need a service that not only provides you the room to upload, but also provides a large amount of bandwidth. Obviously, you want to use a platform that helps build your brand. And finally, you will need a service that reports back to you on how your videos are performing.

Here is a short list of video hosting services that can help you get started with video marketing.

YouTube

We have all heard of and use YouTube—some probably on a daily basis. YouTube is a useful and, most importantly, free service to host your videos. As Barb said yesterday, YouTube has many facets for businesses to take advantage of for online hosting. YouTube allows you to advertise your videos, build your brand and even track their performance with YouTube and Google Analytics.

Vimeo

Vimeo is a hosting service created back in 2004 by a group of filmmakers looking to share their videos. It started out as a website that allowed people to connect and share their visual content, but has now grown into much more. Vimeo remains a place to follow, connect and explore the vast array of content it hosts, but the platform is being geared more toward businesses now.

Vidyard

As Vidyard says themselves, the system was built for marketers. It is a simple system and allows you to sign up for a free 14-day trial of the entire system before you have to pay. This helps you see what it has to offer and decide if it works for you. Much like Wistia, Vidyard allows you to customize your player and thumbnail to help drive viewers. Where Vidyard excels is its integration and analytics.

Introducing Video Slides – thnxz @labnol


With Video Slides, you can quickly create a beautiful slideshow from one or more videos pulled from Youtube and Vimeo. Just past the raw video URLs in any format and the tool will bundle them into a presentation.

There’s a pretty interesting thread on Hacker News where people have shared links to their favorite technical talks. The thread includes dozens of links pointing to YouTube, Vimeo and other video websites.

It’s a treasure trove and I want to click on every single video that’s mentioned on that page but the problem is that I will then end up having at least two dozen new tabs in the browser. And this isn’t just about Hacker News, you can open any popular thread on sites like Quora or Reddit and you’ll be overwhelmed with links pointing to interesting stuff.

How do you deal with such a large collection of raw links? I have written an app called Video Slides that some may find handy here. The app will scan the text for video URLs and put them all in a single slideshow without cluttering your browser.

Here’s a quick video demo.

El dibujo, nueva herramienta empresarial

Una vez el público ya preparado, para empezar, ejercicios sencillos, dibujar formas básicas para “soltar la muñeca”.En todo momento la distribución de la sala agrupaba el público en grupos de cuatro y al finalizar cada ejercicio los asistentes debían cambiar de sitio. Des este modo se potenció la conexión y relación entre las personas asistentes. En el último ejercicio se planteaba que resolvieran un reto: “¿Para qué sirve el dibujo?” a través del Visual Thinking.

¡Más de 130 personas experimentando con el poder del dibujo! Como ya comentamos, el jueves 16 de febrero ESADECREAPOLIS acogió la primera edición del formato Design Thinking Evenings. Para esta ocasión: Draw, Connect & Get Results. Pero aparte de dibujar, conectar y obtener resultados el objetivo principal era pasarlo bien. Aprendimos como utilizar el poder del dibujo para expresar con imágenes aquello que tenemos en la mente y como nos puede ayudar a resolver problemas, plantear retos desde otro punto de vista y a comunicarnos mejor.

A continuación, podéis ver un resumen del taller:

Draw, Connect & Get Results – Design Thinking Evenings from ESADECREAPOLIS on Vimeo.

5 video-sharing alternatives to YouTube

There’s absolutely no doubt that the rise and popularity of online video sharing is changing the way brands and individuals market, advertise and sell. If your company hasn’t already jumped into the fray with a video (or 10), you’re missing out on amassive market. If you’ve scripted, created, edited, and uploaded, it’s fairly shortsighted to “YouTube it” and forget it, as there are a number of other video hosting options available.

Believe it or not, YouTube is not the be all/end all when it comes to online video sharing. Sure, they have the world’s largest share of the market, and should be included in your upload and sharing strategy, but by jumping into the biggest pool on the planet, you’re also running the risk of being swallowed up in all the noise. Last year this time, we gave you 6 Awesome Alternatives to YouTube and now we’re giving you 5 more YouTube-alternative video sharing sites that you and your brand might want to consider.

Vimeo

An active and vibrant community, Vimeo’s smooth-as-silk interface just feels a bit more user friendly than the cold sterility we’ve come to expect from Google products. A platform pulling down some serious traffic, as Vimeo has grown they’ve still managed to retain that “we’re all in this together” community feeling. I’ve personally had far more interactions with viewers and converted clients on Vimeo than I’ve ever had on YouTube.

Vimeo’s free account allows users to upload one HD video a week, more than most individuals will ever have a need (or budget) for, and you receive basic controls when it comes to the video player. Embedding options are limited to SD, but if you step things up to the Plus account for $59.99/yr. you’re granted a 5GB/week file size limit, priority uploading and processing, and HD embedding.

If you’re planning on using Vimeo as your main hosting platform of choice for your business, they’re pretty clear when it comes to the “non-commercial use” language for free accounts. On the upside, for a low $199/yr., the Vimeo Pro service offers just about every option under the sun, and you’ll never have to worry about tablet compatibility as all flavors of Vimeo are offered in HTML5 format with Flash as a fallback.

Flickr

flickr 5 video sharing alternatives to YouTubeFlickr. It’s not just for still images. A seriously under represented offering from Flickr’s side, as there’s no mention of the service anywhere on the main landing page, Flickr does, in fact, offer and provide video hosting.

A free Flickr account allows for 2 uploads a months with restrictions of 90 seconds max, and 150MB per video. Probably enough for most small businesses, but if you want to go for the HD experience, you’ll need to step it up to a Flickr Pro account.

Perhaps the best bang-for-your-video/photo-buck on the Internet today, for as low as $25/year, if you make Flickr your video hosting platform of choice, you’ll be privy to not only an unlimited number of photos, but an unlimited number of video uploads, bandwidth, and storage. The downside? Even with the pro account Flickr limits your video length to 90 seconds. Having said that, unless you’re producing a full length feature, you shouldn’t really be stretching your message beyond this point anyway. Leer más “5 video-sharing alternatives to YouTube”
