Streaming Video Worldwide: Experts from Casmiro.com, a leading platform for monetization of video online, report the video market is taking a social turn. According to large and small independent filmmakers, majority of their exposure and brand activity occurs directly from their social network pages. Over the last 3 years, traditional video distribution has taken a circuitous route toward the final goal of most independent filmmakers: the sale. Every model from pressing and mailing DVD’s to driving your audience to a third party platform for consumption, all defy the beauty of viral marketing and social networks. The question remains: why not minimize the traffic movement and just have the audience buy and watch it from the site they’re at? Casmiro seems to have the solution and is excited to address this problem.
Experts at Casmiro.com say “Since we began Casmiro, our data to support social video sales has been overwhelming. The first step was to create a basic, open source video distribution model for testing. Overall sales from our beta testers posted 15-20% increase revenues over traditional models. The next step was to see if utilizing the most trafficked web environment, usually their Facebook page or social network pages, made a difference in preview to purchase ratios and sales. The results were impressive. In the first 90 days of these tests, the sales from social networks were up 31% over that of traditional models. We knew the model had to go public. We regrouped, made the social integration a standard component in our offer, and released the first version. Results and feedback from independent filmmakers has been very positive.”
As for their plans for the future, “...well, social networks have tendency to be cyclical. We’re holding integration talks with growing domestic and international social networks we believe to be the future of social networking and community interaction online. It’s our goal to make sure the independent filmmakers get the best placement.” Regardless of the distant future, Facebook is here today and Casmiro is allowing filmmakers to partake in its success. For only $19.99 per month, the upside is well worth the investment. We’ll keep you posted on this new method of video distribution.
