Bravo

Bravo takes a more unique approach to online video marketing strategies, allowing your company’s clients, customers, and fans to generate their own videos to send in for you to approve and share. These can be great for obtaining and enhancing testimonials, and the easy-to-use website keeps things simple for your business and for your video creators.

Ranging from a Starter Plan of $24 per month to a Premium Plan of $199 per month, Bravo offers email support, unlimited bandwidth, and a custom microsite for all users with every plan.

The microsite allows your clients, customers, and fans to record, review, and send their videos to you to access and store privately. Once you’re ready, share them with the world by copying and pasting the embed code onto your website, blog, social media outlets, and more. This pay-as-you-go service even offers discounts for nonprofit organizations.

Screencast.com

Screencast.com takes online video marketing for businesses to a new, easier level. Their Pro Account option is less than $100 per year, and it allows companies to use screenshots of PowerPoint presentations and more to generate videos, as well as create custom-branded backgrounds with your logos and color schemes.

This option is great for creating tutorials, making software demos, showing business models and graphs, and displaying sales processes because it allows users to record voice-overs that explain the content being presented on the screen.

In addition to the aforementioned services for online video marketing solutions, you may also want to check out The Trade Desk and Mail Dog. Both of these services offer video tools for your business to utilize that are not only simple, but also are effective at maximizing the content for you (especially if you have no idea where to start and do not want to spend a lot of money on professional video services).
