Announcement

Adam: Hello everybody, and welcome to Hump Day Hangout. This is episode 54. Today is November 11. Happy Veterans Day to everybody out there. Real quick, we want to say hello obviously, and we got some great announcements. We'll get this started. How's it going Hernan? [inaudible 00:00:53]

Video Power House

Adam: Good, good. Can't complain. It's been a busy week. We've just been putting the finishing touches on getting Video Powerhouse ready to go. We're happy to say that it is live. I'm going to be dropping the link in here and you guys can go sign up right away.

This is the embed network that we've been talking about for the past couple months. The story behind this, if we haven't told you, is basically we were looking for ways to go about and get our own video embeds for ranking our own videos. We've been checking out some products that are out there, and not to name names or anything, but we were very unsatisfied to put it nicely with what we found available out there.

We've put together what we would we would call a pretty killer network. This is very powerful. These are real sites that have metrics and are surrounded by IFTTT networks that we have built. All right, this is the same type of stuff that we provide through our own network services. I'm going to pop the link in there. Again, we've been talking about it so I'm not going touch up to much on it but by all means if you're interested in ranking your videos I highly suggest you check this out.

Bradley: I do want to mention, it's going to be a limited release because it is a new network. We don't want to overload it, so we're only going to be allowing about 50 people in. Then, we're going to shut it down so we can make sure it's running smoothly with 50 people in it. Just so you guys know, there was a waiting list and everything else. We're opening it up, but it's going to be a limited thing. It's not a scarcity thing we're doing, we're actually doing that specifically so that we can make sure we can handle the volume and work out any bugs because it is a new network.

That said, we're going to be reinvesting in that network to continue to build it out. Right now, it's just a general marketing video embed network in other words, you can pretty much embed anything besides what the typical no-go things are like Farma, porn, that kind of stuff. As we start bringing customers in we're going to reinvest in the network and build out at least five top level category themed networks, plus the general network. We'll end up with six, each having it's own minimum of 100 sites as the tier one, plus 20 web 2. This is part of the IFTTT rings around each one of those. It comes out to be 100 tier one embeds and 2,000 tier 2 embeds. Embeds backlogging social signals, that sort of thing per network.

We're going to have essentially five top level categories like health and wellness, construction/home services, business/financial, those kind of top level categories. Just so you guys are aware, currently it is not a themed network. It is just a general network. We're going to use that while we continue to build out the other high level categories. Obviously, as that continues to get developed we'll be giving out notifications of it as well. Do you want to add anything else to that Adam?
