Marketing Vice Presidents for Fortune 500 companies, as well as teenage American Idol wannabes now have a new platform to find an interested audience to gain quality feedback. The website http://www.veryfocused.com will allow users to post multimedia and receive focused feedback from an audience that is specifically chosen using specific demographics. Launched by Stratham, NH entrepreneur Patrick Quinn, VeryFocused will enable anyone interested in posting multimedia to receive direction and input from defined, select, and appropriate audiences. Not only can users post their own multimedia, they can also log on and be part of specific focus groups formed to offer feedback on material specifically tailored to their personal interests.
VeryFocused is the first website designed to provide “producers / posters of multimedia” with valuable, focused feedback from viewers, and it’s the first site to offer “viewers” a focused pre-selection of a wide range of videos to watch and evaluate. Available to anyone who uses YouTube or similar sites, as well as professional presenters and corporations, VeryFocused, and the concept behind it, are expected to revolutionize the use of the internet in the focus group industry.
“The problem with the online multimedia space is that while there are many video websites, none of them focus on acquiring quality feedback for the people who post them.,” said Quinn. “If you look at videos posted on YouTube, the comment section rarely offers any form of constructive criticism. Comments on video sites seldom generate quality feedback, often spanning the gamut from insignificant to outright vulgar. This amounts to little value to the poster. By offering anyone the ability to post a video, choose an audience, and select questions, the result will be quality feedback that leads to better presentations.”
The site might not replace traditional focus groups, but it will offer corporations versatile tools and unique metrics they can utilize. “There are some projects that might require a legacy-type focus group, with the participants and moderator in one room and a one-way mirror.,” Quinn says, “But as people start to understand what http://www.VeryFocused can do, I expect that we will hear the marketing departments in Fortune 500 companies saying, ‘Before we spend time and money on a traditional focus group for this, let’s ‘VeryFocus’ the concept and see what our targeted audiences think about it.’”
“If you are an 'American Idol-wannabe', or developing a standup act, upload your video into VeryFocused’s entertainment section and choose the age of the audience that you would like to reach. Giving a speech at work, or launching a new product --- upload it to VeryFocused’s business section and get feedback before your presentation. Doing a presentation for high school or maybe a Doctoral dissertation? Host it on VeryFocused’s education section and specify the level of education, including the college majors of the audience. See a campaign commercial on YouTube for a politician and interested what other people think of it? Copy the embed code into VeryFocused’s political section and find out exactly what people think. It’s simple to define your audience, present to them, and prompt them to give you specific and honest feedback to the parts of the presentation that you are concerned about.”
VeryFocused.com is also developing relationships with retail entities who are interested in using their own database of customers to drive them to VeryFocused.com to watch and respond to products and videos that they are producing. Their customers will get an invitation to log in and view their videos on a co-branded VeryFocused.com site, then be presented with questions on the video which can introduce a product (or ideas for future products), and the client will have access to their feedback as soon as it has registered. The goal of VeryFocused.com is to be the solution for the Fortune 500 Company, as well as the creative individual.
For people who never create videos, but like watching videos, VeryFocused is the website for them. No other website will present viewers with videos that are made with them in mind. “The people posting videos need your feedback. You are the ‘Simon Cowell’ to their performance.,“ says Quinn.
About VeryFocused.com: VeryFocused is a website that allows users to embed, distribute, and view multimedia with an emphasis on obtaining quality feedback from highly relevant audiences. Its goal is to allow anyone to create their own focus group on the Internet. The service currently does not charge for its service.
