TREVOSE, PA – February 22, 2010 – Advertising Specialty Institute® reported today its LogoMall Network websites for distributors now have the option to feature a new type of interactive video to increase online sales.
Website owners can choose from a collection of professionally-produced, ready-to-use videos featuring a spokesperson who personally greets visitors and engages them to find promotional products and ideas throughout the site. The videos are produced by ASI affiliate RIVWorks Inc.
Custom video can also be created, where the LogoMall owner can personalize their own video, offering a way to further reinforce their brand and simultaneously drive higher sales conversions.
“Industry companies must stay well ahead of the digital marketing curve and the online competition,” said Timothy M. Andrews, president and chief executive officer of ASI. “These videos are the latest, hottest interactive medium available for LogoMall sites. The videos are so easy to use and they’ll make you more money and save time that you would have spent programming them yourself. You’ve got an extra edge with this service.”
In addition, an ongoing program will run automatically in the background that constantly gathers data about visitors and uses that data to suggest additional ways to target your video message.
“ASI’s LogoMall is an incredible marking tool and with RIVWorks, it becomes even more powerful because the interaction with potential shoppers translates into more sales,” said Ty Ricker, co-founder and vice president of new business development at RIVWorks.com. “The professionalism of these videos also adds a tremendous amount of credibility to the site.”
Real-time analytics track each campaign to show distributors their video impressions and click-through rates to document leads. The interactive platform also records whether visitors are first-time or return, and then it delivers the right video instantly.
Distributors with a LogoMall site can subscribe to the new video service immediately, at special pricing for ASI members.
