I'm sure most of you are probably familiar with photo tagging applications (Facebook, Instagram, etc), but what about video tagging applications? Can you think of any? Yeah, crazy huh? Hard to believe it doesn't exist - well, not to the capacity as I'm about to explain.
We're Tunedn, a patent-pending and trademarked video enhancement application that will change the way people view and interact with online video.
Our application makes it simple and easy for anyone to add media-rich tags with enhanced information about the people, products, places and things appearing in the video. And then, to share these tagged videos with friends across social media networks like Facebook.
Think of us like VH1's Popup Video, AMC's Movie Notes or a video version of Wikipedia.
People are genuinely interested in the information appearing in video; however, there are currently no standardized means for identifying this information. Tunedn provides the necessary tools to import a video from an external site (YouTube, Vimeo, DailyMotion, etc), tag the video at specific time intervals that match the content being tagged, enabling a viewer to see these tags contextually as the video plays, sharing this information with friends across social networks and embedding these enhanced videos on their own websites.
As for my own personal experience and what spawned the idea of Tunedn, a couple years back I was in the market for buying a motorcycle. I had recently watched "How To Lose A Guy in 10 Days" where Matthew McConaughey was riding a really nice looking bike. Just what I was looking for! From watching the video, I couldn't tell what type of bike it was. I ended up spending over an hour searching through Google forums until I finally arrived at my answer, a 2006 Triumph Bonneville. I called a local Triumph dealership and bought the $10,000 bike the next day. I got to thinking, "I can't be the only one that thinks like this." And apparently, I'm not (thank goodness!). How many times have you watched video and wondered "who is that actor?", "where is that scene?", "what kind of car is that?", "what kind of shoes is she wearing?", etc? Imagine having all this information available to your at your fingertips or contributing your own knowledge and/or thoughts for a community to view. Now, that's what I'm talking about!
Now, I'm sure you're probably interested in how we plan on making money. There are numerous way in which we plan to monetize our application both from a Business 2 Business (B2B) capacity as well as a Business 2 Consumer (B2C):
- Banner advertisements / sponsorships
- Pre-roll / Post-roll video ads
- A marketplace where we can connect Video Producers with Advertisers to create original videos with product placements. Advertiser will pay Tunedn for the impressions/clicks of their tags. Tunedn will pay commission to Video Producer for impressions/clicks their video delivers.
- Licensing our application to businesses (think the ESPN's of the world). Initial setup fee, monthly licensing fees and then performance fees for the impressions/clicks. This is simply an extension of their current sales channel, providing an added option to a sales reps arsenal.
- Facebook application. Our goal is to build a huge user base and sell our application to a large company that has the resources to make this commonplace for anyone watching video.
Our application makes watching video more engaging, creates way to add stickiness to a website and provides means for monetizing video.
We currently have a public beta version of the site running. It's a bit clunky, so please bear with us. I've self-funded the project and have reached a point where I need more help. Like most, my resources are limited. With your help, I can bring on the additional staff I need to dedicate themselves to building out our various applications (revised site new.tunedn.com, facebook app, mobile apps, partner portal, etc). We're in desperate need of highly talented mid-sr level php developers. So, if you know any - PLEASE LET US KNOW.
Our most immediate dev goal is to complete our Facebook application and market it to musicians, on Facebook, so that they may enhance their music videos. Musicians often have a strong fan base and fans that are very interested in the random trivia about the band, instruments being played, upcoming tour dates, etc - that could be communicated, via tags, through video. Viewers watching these enhanced videos will have the ability to install the application on their own page and begin enhancing their own videos and sharing with friends.
