Capture THEIR Video on YOUR Website with Vidrack

Capture THEIR Video on YOUR Website with Vidrack | AtDotCom Social media |
Your website visitors can easily record and submit video right on your website. Add a video camera to your website.

Vidrack Is COOL
Imagine you could have a customizable video button on YOUR website that activates and captures video from THEIR (your visitors;) mobile, PC or laptop camera. 

Video captured goes to an admin where you approve (so spam or who knows what doesn't make it live all the way out to your website). 

Here are some cool uses of a simple, cool technology:

* Q&A - Ask a question and let your customers / visitors record their answers. 

* FORM Killer - never ask for a form to b completed again. Just ask people to create a short video sharing the way THEY would like to be contacted. 

* Real Time - ask customers to shoot video of your product in use. 

* Real Time Promotion - as customers to shoot videos wearing or using your branded merchandise. 

* Video Storytelling - create the beginning of a story and ask your customers / visitors to finish it with a video.

* Ask For Content - Let's say you need architecture detail content, ask customers to video their favorite architecture details. 

* Ask for Reviews / Feedback - Maybe this tool can do something Amazon struggled to create - video reviews. 

* Video Travel - ask customers to share videos from their travel. 

* Video Funding - videos already play a big role in crowdfunding, nonprofits should ask visitors to share WHY they support them since others will be moved to do the same. 

* Video Conferences - since you can approve videos you can hold a class, ask questions or responses and edit videos submitted to make your point. 

* Video Teaching - Your customers may have cool and unique ways to use your product, ask them to share and teach other customers. 

* Video Fashion - How do your clothes really look on real people? Ask customers / visitors to create and share what they are wearing today and why. 

* Video Commentary - Have a controversy, nothing creates more attention faster online than controversy easy to ramp it up with UGV (User Generated Video). 

Could go on and on since THEIR video content is so much more valuable than YOURS. This is a content conclusion I've come to recently. Your content creates legitimacy for your brands and ideas, but THEIR content in the form of reviews, comments or even filled out forms can create social shares. 

If there is anything more important than social shares in Internet Marketing today I don't know what it is. If someone clicks on your record button, submits a video almost 100% will follow with social shares if you alert them to their video's approval and publication to your website. 

Cool tool.

If you are a startup and you are NOT putting all those slide presentations you are creating to get money and define your market on Slideshare you are NUTS.

Birth of the Cool: Link To The IDEA Not The Web Page With PullQuote App via @hc

Birth of the Cool: Link To The IDEA Not The Web Page With PullQuote App via @hc | AtDotCom Social media |
Use Pullquote to create a link to a paragraph on a web page. Pullquote is great for micro-bookmarking or tweeting about key ideas.

Henry Copeland (@hc) is the Internet marketing genius behind blogads and a good friend of my friend Phil Buckley's (@1918). I promise to do another post on how cool Blogads is ( ), but Phil shared something at lunch today that has my palms sweating it is so exciting.

Why Pull Quote Is So Cool
Curators on like Robin (@RobinGood), Guillaume (@Gdecugis) and Ally (@AllyGreer) will get how cool Henry's pullquote app is immediately. The app allows you to "pull" a piece of content from a favorite post, share it on social media and be able to curate your "pulled" stack.

I've been writing about the "snipitization" and "appification" of everything and Henry just proved the point. Curators usually LOVE 10% of a post, like another 20% and can take or leave the rest.

Now, thanks to Henry's very cool app you can create this:


That link is to Henry's PullQuotes tagged "innovation". Here is the link to all of his curated groups:


Every curator out there is now fully focused on THIS piece (lol). Not an easy feat, but that is the power of Henry's brilliant idea. Henry's PullQuote App is like a writers index cards ONLY there is a special secret.

Let's move all the way through Henry's invention.

We click on the first pullquote and get this page:

Click on the tiny URL at the top to get this page:

Click on the post link at the bottom and we've arrived back at the ScienceDaily post Henry pulled from

PullQuote just built curated relationships between content snippets Henry tags as "innovation", but those new relationships don't break the link back to the post.

Imagine how much easier it will be to write a post about innovation with PullQuote. Creators can go to their tagged "innovation" basket and find cool references and relationships they didn't even know existed.

Now let’s fast forward into the curation implications. I read a TON of content every day. I have to read mountains of content because things I read yesterday aren't categorized and tagged. is great and using its FILTERS must have saved a year of my life. Problem is we lack this view:

That view of the tages you use is an incredible feedback loop because you can see how rich each "basket" is. Henry has 22 PullQuotes in innovation and so it ranks among his top interests exceeded only by health.

By curating the QUOTE we can easily arrange our baskets so writing or curating a post about innovation takes MUCH LESS TIME. If could add a tag cloud view across all feeds much the same benefit could be created (from a dashboard) perspective.

I see PullQuote and as natural allies. When something BIG about Google is blooming on then a quick check of PullQuotes curated and tagged as Google might lend weight and credibility to a Scoop or blog post (and then a Scoop or social feed).

Did you see the secret? The secret is since you are only grabbing pieces of many articles overhead is a fraction of what storing the article would be. With the way the cloud is today I bet you could PullQuote the galaxy and it wouldn't require much backend iron to support.

The real benefit is in how we as curators and creators will learn to create and cross index our cards (PullQuotes). Any tools like and PullQuote that promise MORE even as they require LESS has my attention. What about you?

Bravo Henry!

Long live the content snippet in the content jungle. A very flexible tool to mine for pull quote.
