Check out Vid4pro.com -- a new B2B website for professionals and businesses to upload professional videos for marketing, HR or client purposes.
"Marketers can choose to post their videos on Vid4Pro without the worry that it might reside next to cute babies and kittens on YouTube," quipped founder Linda Sedloff Orton of New York. As a result, marketers have a better chance of reached a more targeted audience for their videos and more quickly engaging them in a business relationship.
According to Forrester Research, posting online videos can increase a site's chance of achieving first page rankings with Google by more than 50 percent. According to a 2011 Forbes survey, 64 percent of executives watch work-related videos on business-related websites on a weekly basis. Vid4Pro is capitalizing on the widespread desire to receive information via videos and the gap in legal, accounting consulting, technology and finance professions to house them appropriately.
Womble Carlyle, a video pioneer and business law firm, has several videos on the site. “Womble Carlyle has produced a comprehensive library of videos and we wanted to expand our video marketing. Vid4Pro is a professional version of YouTube -- nothing like it exists for the legal, accounting and consulting world," said Aden Dauchess, Director of Digital Media. "The search capabilities are sophisticated and once in-house corporate counsel see how easy it is to use, we expect substantially increased traffic to our videos.”
“Corporations spend hundreds of thousands of dollars creating branded videos, but have limited choices on where they can post, house, and direct traffic. Since Vid4Pro.com is exclusively for the professional community, visitors aren’t bombarded with irrelevant ads or distracting content,” Orton said. “Also, users will be able to leverage social media and be guided through video tagging and video SEO tips to support marketing, sales, training or recruitment objectives.”
To upload videos, members will have the opportunity to sign up for a 30-day, free trial. After the trial period users can select from different plans ranging from $299 to $999 per month based. Pricing is online at www.vid4pro.com/join.
