Would You Like to Videotise Your Classified Ads?

"Reachoo makes it easy to produce a quick video, upload it and get the word out to millions of people on the web, instantly. In fact, we'll be launching an iPhone and Android application in a few weeks to let you shoot, edit and upload your video all from your phone," says Pham.

Prospective buyers rarely click on an ad without an image anymore. And now, the next evolution of classifieds is about to be “videotised.”

Reachoo is the web’s first and only syndicated video classifieds site where users can both upload and view free video ads. According to the site’s founder, Quynh Pham, “videotising” classifieds is a no-brainer. “Considering how easy it is for all of us to capture a quick video with our cell phones and upload it to the web.”

I took a look at the site and it does appear simple, almost too simple. Pham is right when he calls it a “no Brainer.” Video classifieds are more effective and persuasive than traditional ads. Employers can see an applicant’s poise and confidence in a video resume. Clients can even view a video brochure before deciding to give companies any business. Seeing the Lazy Boy recliner in excellent condition on video sells it even faster. The prospective buyer doesn’t have to visit the product on site to necessarily decide if he wants to buy it or not.

“Videotising” saves sellers time and money by spreading ads posted on the site to every corner of the web for free, thus increasing an ad’s exposure tenfold for instant and impressive results. According to Reachoo’s statistics, video advertisements boast a 50 percent greater rate of sales than non-video ads. What’s more, the site’s syndication service reaches out to anywhere between 800,000 to millions of prospective customers daily through its classifieds partners, including Yahoo!, Trovit, Zillow, Trulia, Adsdeck, Facebook, Yakaz, Claz, Mitula and hundreds more.
