Automated online product video technology and service provider Treepodia released its Video Distributor service today. The service enables merchants to upload their catalog of online product videos to video sharing sites like YouTube.com, Metacafe, Dailymotion and others.
It's common knowledge that video provides a powerful way to shore up search rankings. According to Forrester Research, pages with video are 50 times more likely to appear on the first page of Google search results than plain HTML pages.
“Many consumers now use video-sharing portals as a way to research information about new products and get a close-up look at them before they buy. As such, retailers whose videos aren’t listed on these sites miss out on tremendous sales opportunities,” said Dr. Melody King, vice president of marketing for Treepodia. “Our new Video Distributor service is a fast way to generate high impact by ensuring that product videos are viewed by as many customers as possible, while also improving search rankings for our customers and their products – all of which adds up to higher conversion rates and increases in revenues.”
