Increase your sales by 400% in 30 seconds!
New start-up website FlogTube.com* offers businesses of all sizes a brilliant new way to advertise and sell. Whether you’re a local plumber selling your services or an internationally recognised brand name selling a new line of product, FlogTube works by increasing communication between buyers and sellers.
According to founder Simon Weatherall, ‘The idea behind the site is that sellers of services and products can upload a 30 second sales video onto FlogTube. It’s like a Yellow Pages using the latest Internet and mobile technology.’
FlogTube combines the immediacy of video sites such as YouTube with the user-friendly environment of established online retail sites like Ebay. According to research, video has been proven to be four times more effective in selling products than the written word.**
For consumers, FlogTube offers a brilliant way to source new products and services, such as local tradesman. ‘For individuals advertising their own services, FlogTube is a fantastic opportunity to get their personality and individual approach across to their target market,’ explains Simon.
The first 1,000 video uploads to FlogTube will be free, after which a minimal fee will be charged for the upload of videos, but crucially businesses will keep 100% of the value of their sales.
For every video uploaded on FlogTube, points are awarded and you can also receive points for sharing your videos using social media streams such as Facebook. Businesses are ranked according to their point score, and the company at the top of the league table each month will receive featured advertising on FlogTube for their service, product or brand for that whole month.
