REDWOOD CITY, Calif.—August 25, 2008—SpotMixer (www.SpotMixer.com) an innovative online video advertising service of One True Media, Inc., announced today that the company is gaining rapid momentum in the do-it-yourself video ad creation market, adding thousands of new business users since its May launch. SpotMixer is kicking off the fall advertising season with an expanded template library, now offering more than 300 templates. As it rolls out service enhancements that even more effectively meet customers’ needs, SpotMixer is becoming known as the leading online service provider for businesses to easily and inexpensively create professional-quality video ads they can distribute online or via television.
“With SpotMixer, our goal is to give businesses the best of both worlds,” said Mark Moore, CEO of One True Media, which owns and operates SpotMixer. “Unlike other video ad services providers, we do not limit advertisers to stock footage or pre-built ads in order to make it ‘easy,’ and we do not require advertisers to pay us or third-party videographers in order to produce a ‘custom’ ad. In a single interface, we give customers all the tools and all the options to produce the ads they want, and distribute them via the channels that will reach their target audience. Our unique offering is the reason why SpotMixer is seeing such rapid adoption in the market.”
Enhanced Template Library
SpotMixer is the first and only video ad services provider to offer a template-based approach for custom video ads, allowing users to create ads with the same ease as assembling an online photo album. SpotMixer’s professionally designed templates include a wide range of transitions, effects, music and pacing that appeal to a broad range of businesses. Users simply choose from the over 300 available templates and insert their own photos, videos, music (or augment with SpotMixer’s extensive library of stock photos, videos, and music tracks), and record an optional voiceover. The result is a polished video ad. Businesses can create ads on SpotMixer free of charge, and when they are ready to publish, monthly subscriptions start at $59.
