Small Business Online Video Ads Ready For Primetime?

August 11th, 2008

The WSJ writes today about the emergence on online video advertising for small businesses.  According to the article some advertisers are seeing great performance.  This bodes well for the growing legion of SMB video ad sellers.  Here are a few that you might want to check out:

AdReel

Jivox

JiffySpots

Mixpo

SpotMixer

TurnHere

One of the things that caught my eye in the article was how the “try it for free” incentive was key to attracting the business profiled in the piece, Mirek Boruta of Princess Port Bed and Breakfast in Half Moon Bay, CA.  As more companies get into this game there will be a proliferation of these “try it for free” offers and while it may not be worth chasing all of them down, smart marketers will take advantage of these promotions as much as possible.

More on this article from my main man, Greg Sterling.

On a more somber note, let us all remember Mr. Isaac Hayes.  If you have never heard him do Light My Fire from his Live at the Sahara Tahoe album you have not truly experienced hot buttered soul.

    Do this guys have any referral/affiliate programs?

    edit: looks like they do, I will have to check out the terms later

    That would be cool if they did b/c if you signed up like
    200 clients/yr
    @500US/yr
    @10% of amount client spent
    –>10k/yr

    then if you added another 200 clients next year…then ~20k/yr

    sweet revenue stream…

    if someone wants to do a project based around this I am super down. find me here at http://www.seomoz.org/users/view/40669

    Great ideas! I like the way people are starting out with less than $500 bucks. I know that video advertisement marketing and link exchange is very important to small business. after getting booted off youtube.com there are sites like http://adwido.com that give you free link exchange, video uploads, and even just a simple web page that will link back to your site because getting found is everything!
