RollyPolly makes your online video interactive

A fantastic way for your company to reach out to the masses is through an online video. A video has the ability to share crucial information, entertain, educate, introduce you to your clientele, and inspire and encourage viewers to use your service or purchase your products. Viewers can leave comments, but online videos usually don’t leave much room for true interaction and engagement. That’s no longer the case, thanks to RollyPolly.

When people watch videos, they usually have to wait until the end of the video to make a comment. Or, if they decide to make a comment while the video is still playing, it either messes up the video or starts it from the very beginning. RollyPolly solves this problem. While a video is playing, users can comment, interact with each other, and even interact with you. Each comment made is time-stamped, which means it coordinates to a section of the video. It’s all in real-time and encourages discussion and engagement.

Easier to comment, easier to share

RollyPolly also makes it much easier to share videos and comments. If a viewer wants to share a video section that starts at three minutes into the video, they can make that specification and send their friend right to the precise moment they want to share. Think of how easily your video, or parts of your video, can go viral. The best marketing you can have is when users and customers spread the word for you, all because they like what you have to offer and you’ve made an impression.

When it comes to pricing, you have three basic options. The first one is a free account. This includes like and dislike buttons on your video, real-time comments, support, and video analytics. The second tier is for just under $90 and additional features include private interactions with viewers, the ability to include polls, and email support. The third and final tier allows you to customize the features you want. This is priced according to the features you choose, naturally.

RollyPolly has redefined how customers and business interact through videos and how users share them with their personal contacts. There really isn’t a risk to try it out. Just start with the lowest priced tier, which is free, and see where it can take your brand. You no longer have to be on separate sides of the line with your users when it comes to your business’s videos. RollyPolly makes it so you’re on the same team.
