Metalgrass software is proud to release a new web service: Video-Alerts
Video-Alerts is a simple yet powerful service that allows you to get email notifications when new videos are available, using keywords (or channels). The service is free and currently supports YouTube only.
Video Alerts can be used by bloggers who want to be the first to find out about new videos in their niche, information officers who need to know when people mention their product or service (or for competitor products) or anyone that wants to follow their favorite musician, investment portfolio, local events, and more.
"Almost everybody watches videos on line today, and Video-Alerts can help them find out about new videos that might interest them in an easy way" said Ron Mertens, Metalgrass' CEO. "Email is obviously one of the most useful tools, and people love getting their content delivered that way".
"We have soft-launched our first beta a few weeks ago, and currently getting great feedback from users. We are already seeing many people interested in news, music and tech products. There is also a growing number of bloggers who use the service to stay updated on their blog's subject. Being the first blogger to report about a new video can be great and really helps to get exposure and back links".
New alerts can be setup using keyword search, or by uploading user (to follow all new uploads). Users can also choose the channel, email frequency and maximum number of daily alerts.
Video-Alerts Currently support YouTube videos only, but more services and features will be added in the future.
