The other day, I received an email from NovaUCD, the technology center where VideoCrisp office is that Ray Suarez, the famous journalist with PBS NewsHour is doing a piece about Ireland and particularly how it got out of recession with the help of budding entrepreneurs. Ray would like to meet with a company in Nova and from a long list of startups based here, they decided to pick VideoCrisp.
I was obliged and honestly, a bit surprised. We have start-ups here in Nova which have raised over $10 million in investment and are in business for over 6-7 years and to be chosen among them was really thrilling, to be least. Probably it was because we are a tech start-up, founded by an expat and is in cloud & video sectors, the two BIG buzz words in the start-up industry these days.
The interview or should I say informal chat was mainly about Ireland, the deep recession it got into, VideoCrisp, its story and the reasoning behind starting the company in Ireland. To be honest, it gave me an opportunity as well as a platform to thank Ireland, Enterprise Ireland and everyone here who believed in me and my start-ups, VideoCrisp in particular. I mentioned this to Ray and has no hesitation in repeating, I don’t think I could have found a better place to start my journey as a tech-entrepreneur. Ireland, despite being so small and in bad times offers everything to be one of the best places in the world to start a business.
Here is the link to the piece which was finally aired on PBS NewsHour in North America and else where. ( I appear at 5:35 ).

Today, digital marketing is all about content. Talk with any Googler, and he/ she will tell you that all Google cares about these days is unique content. Well, Its certainly a great time to be a Blogger or social media marketer. Luckily, there are also so many ways to create content – through blogs, infographics, white-papers, videos, podcasts, slide-shows and you name it. It brings more visitors, search engines love it and if its awesome content, it may have a viral potential that can change things overnight. The challenge is to regularly produce high-quality content, which looks professional and expensive.
The problem with businesses is that even though there is ample content available on the web in the form of images, mini-videos, data, infographics etc, its either copyright material and therefore can’t be used commercially or very expensive. Take for example, stock footage. It costs not less than $100 a piece and is of no use unless used with text, music, video editing effects etc.
So what if you can use the real expensive and HQ content into a real quick business video without paying a lot of money. In VideoCrisp, we have worked really hard to create an extensive library of professional HQ stock images, mini-videos, animations, music etc for you so that you can use them to create an amazing video which isn’t just a power-point alike presentation or an animation video without any real-time live footage.
The question is doesn’t that make the video very expensive. It does but not for you. You can use 10 stock footage, 20 stock images and a music track (which in total cost you over $2000) to create a finished professional video in VideoCrisp for less than $50. Wouldn’t that be a great content that you would like to use in your blogs, forums, social media, RSS feeds, email news-letters etc regularly and quickly. How would your visitors and customers react to that. Why not try it yourself and see the results.
Here is a quick example of video created using VideoCrisp.
Video content is fast becoming a central element of all business’ marketing strategy. Internet users are more likely to engage with and remember your message when they can see it in video form, whether on their favourite website, Facebook, or your company’s homepage.
Until now however, promotional video production has long been associated with a multitude of complications. To make a professional, finished video, you need money, time, and technical expertise. This has typically been a challenge for small businesses, as well as web, design and marketing agencies; the increasing demand for video content often means such agencies are forced either to engage with, or refer their clients to, costly video production companies, sacrificing a significant slice of their profits to do so.
