He had already set up a website explaining his product, but what he needed was an affordable way to demonstrate its usefulness towards the public.
Since he already had a video made, (or at least one in the works) I recommended that he upload it towards Google Video since they already have a section for commercials on the home page. You can even place it on your site for users to view. Here is an example below:
Although there are other services out there, such as You Tube where one could upload content for free, Google Video has two advantages over the competition.
- Users can download your commercial onto their Ipod, Sony Playstation or Google Player
- You can sell your commercial later on for profit
Using Google Video is not only a smart way to save money but also gain exposure as well. I think I am going to explore this personally myself, and will let you know when my commercial "is live" online.
