For the past several months Channels Network™ has been working behind the scenes to join the power and popularity of video with their niche e-business network websites. They are pleased to announce today that the planning, development, and beta testing is over, and the bright future of Channels Network™ is underway.
The Channels Network™ http://channelsnetwork.com of e-business websites uniquely serves viable niche markets such as antiques, apartments, auctions, dating, diamonds, estate jewelry, FSBO real estate, hotels, recipes, restaurants, and others that are perfect venues for video content and presentations.
"Now homeowners listing their homes on our real estate site FSBO Channels can add a virtual video tour to their listing of their home's interior, exterior, the yard, the neighborhood, the local schools and more. Now that is effective internet advertising to the 85% of all real estate buyers who search the web", said Bert L. Bill, COO and co-founder.
The recent launch of Recipe Channels™ http://recipechannels.com an exciting new "video recipe" web development of Channels Network™ , has received rave reviews from visitors and is experiencing double digit daily increases in unique visitors and video views. The appeal of video recipes is expected to soon replace recipe sites with basic printed ingredients, preparation and cooking instructions.
The power of a narrated streaming video brings everything to life like nothing else can and is clearly at the center of all marketing. Until now, only large companies could afford to produce and air a video "commercial". With the invent of affordable digital videography and broadband, the advertising playing field has been leveled and now open to individuals and businesses of all sizes.
The exploding popularity of video and the marketing power of the medium need no more proof than the fact that Google™ paid $2 billion for YouTube™ last year. Video is clearly at the center of all future business advertising and marketing until something replaces audio and video presentations.
In December, nearly 141 million U.S. Internet users watched more than 10 billion videos, according to ComScore. Video lovers watched an average of 3.4 hours of video during the month, representing a 34% gain since the beginning of 2007. The average online video lasted 2.8 minutes, and the average viewer watched 72 videos.
Online video ad spending will double from just under $800 million in 2007 to $1.6 billion this year, and will hit $4.3 billion in 2011, according to researcher eMarketer.
When Channels Network began building their niche e-business portfolio, they selected keyword specific domain names that included the word "Channels" with the knowledge that video was about to become more widely used, according to Ray Whitmer, CEO and co-founder. The portfolio contains dozens of successful operating sites and hundreds of top level keyword rich domain names.
