What is Simple Web TV? What is a WebTV? Why?

Simple Web TV is a WebTV solution... A WebTV is a Web page dedicated to showing audiovisual content; it is a promotion tool that will allow you to create your own TV channel in Internet, with your own identity and without depending on other Websites like YouTube, Vimeo, etc.

Then, should I stop using YouTube, Vimeo, etc.? of course no, but use them as a complement to your online strategy, not as your primary audiovisual portal.

What do you prefer? We present you two situations:

Situation 1: Visitors of your Website are looking for audiovisual content and you redirect them to your YouTube or Vimeo page, WHERE THERE ARE ALSO PRODUCTS AND SERVICES FROM YOUR COMPETITORS and, to top it all, over your videos will appear Ads that can result being from your competitors!.

Situation 2:
Visitors of your Website are looking for audiovisual content and you redirect them to your WebTV, where THERE ARE ONLY YOUR PRODUCT AND SERVICES VIDEOS, furthermore, when users are interested in a product or service they find in your videos, they can click on it to go directly to your online store of informative page where you offer more information about those products and services.

A powerful sales and marketing tool

A WebTV can complement your current Website by showing information about your products and services in a more visual and enjoyable way. Even more, from every video you can link with other content located in your current Website or online store, thus, completing the information cycle with one objective: increase the possibilities of selling your products and services.

Suitable for multiple applications

The WebTV is a tool suitable for multiple applications/fields: tv production, corporate TVs, tourism and entertainment, home and family, video brochures, medicine, real state, architecture, health and beauty, e-learning, news, social events (weddings, birthdays, etc), sports, art and culture, museum, public records, society, science and technology, toys, content for youth and kids, many more.
