We want people who are serious about their talents, who are looking for that recognition and potential rise to fame that YouTube may not be able to offer. Whatever their dream, we want to help them fulfill it.
Waterloo, ON (PRWEB) November 10, 2011
URSponsored.com made waves with industry professionals and investors alike at red10 Social media Fest, a high profile social media event in Mexico City that featured influential speakers like Ashton Kutcher (co-founder of Katalyst) and Brian Solis (Author and principal at Altimeter Group). Not only has it been named the most relevant video hosting and contest site for people looking to become the next big thing, it’s expected to fill a recognized gap in the current video market.
“Talented people are getting lost on YouTube and other sites like it,” says Arturo Cervantes, founder of URSponsored.com. “People want to make an impression, they want to leave a mark, and hopefully get recognized for their talents. That’s why shows like American Idol, X Factor and America’s Got Talent are so popular. People want to get noticed. And we want them to do just that on our site.”
Cervantes believes URSponsored.com creates a niche for people to showcase themselves in an uncluttered environment – an environment that’s focused on the individual.
“We’re not necessarily looking for people to upload videos of their cat falling off a chair,” says Tim Scott, Director of Business Development for URSponsored.com. “That just clutters the system. We want people who are serious about their talents, who are looking for that recognition and potential rise to fame that YouTube may not be able to offer. Maybe they’re looking for a record deal, or they want to promote their web-based TV show to a network. Whatever their dream, we want to help them fulfill it.”
During the conference URSponsored.com was one of four companies who were invited to provide a brief demo of their service and to participate in a question and answer period for over 1000 attendees and members of the media. red10 Social media Fest attendees were especially interested in the value proposition for companies. Not only does URSponsored.com filter out unnecessary content, they offer companies, agents, and other organizations the opportunity to engage the individual user directly and provide users with financial compensation.
But what about YouTube, the world’s largest video hosting site? How can URSponsored.com possibly compete? Cervantes is adamant the sites won’t step on each other’s toes. “We don’t compete,” he says “We compliment each other. We also have very different purposes for users to visit our respective sites.”
The value of URSponsored.com is not only in the ability to be rewarded almost immediately, or in the opportunity to be associated with a high profile company, but also in the video contests the site offers. The video contests are sponsored by companies or organizations to help them locate and isolate talent in a specific field. To help them find their spokesperson, a replacement band member, the next big thing.
“We believe these video contests are what set URSponsored.com apart and what will attract users to our site. It is instant gratification, instant recognition, with a strong possibility of being rewarded,” says Cervantes. “Besides, people don’t always want to wait in line for hours to see a judge for a competition on the off chance they’ll make it through. They would rather enter an online contest where lots of people can see them immediately, and where they can become an overnight sensation.”
And with the investors they’ve already lined up, the folks at URSponsored.com are confident they’ll be able to engage the companies and brands that will make their site even more attractive to users.
URSponsored.com wants people to feel involved – they want people to participate in the contests by uploading a video or commenting and rating the videos of others. To feel like they can influence the outcome of a contest with their votes.
Ursponsored.com is a place where everyone has the ability to help others achieve their dreams.
