RISMEDIA, August 28, 2008-WellcomeMat, an online video management platform where site members market properties and local businesses, announced a partnership with TurnHere, Inc., an online video production company. As part of the initial relationship, TurnHere will become a trusted video production partner for WellcomeMat community members and will provide at least 250 local neighborhood videos for WellcomeMat’s new video search product.
Through the agreement, WellcomeMat will gain a video production partner with unparalleled local reach, a proven authentic style and extensive experience in the real estate and SMB verticals. In addition, TurnHere will be represented in WellcomeMat’s filmmaker directory, providing the company with access to prospective clients seeking videos for their local business or real estate listing. WellcomeMat will also display TurnHere video content on its search pages, directing prospective customers to TurnHere’s WellcomeMat profile page where visitors can hire a filmmaker, request a quote or contact TurnHere directly. Through the partnership, WellcomeMat will more than double the number of local video producers available through their proprietary platform.
WellcomeMat, which was recently called “indispensable” in NAR testimony before the FCC, will use the partnership with TurnHere to augment its initiatives to help more local businesses and the real estate industry. TurnHere has a demonstrated track record of successfully connecting local businesses and real estate professionals with its network of more than 5,000 filmmakers to create engaging, authentic and relevant videos at an affordable price point.
“There is no question that video is the best way for local business owners and real estate professionals to stand out online,” said Christian Sterner, co-founder of WellcomeMat. “Our mission is to use video to connect people and places. By working with TurnHere, we’ll be able to offer our partners and customers access to a well-established production company with wide geographic reach and outstanding experience.”
“Our partnership with WellcomeMat will enable us to pair our skilled independent filmmakers with a growing set of partners who have production needs in geographically diverse areas,” said Morgan Brown, director of marketing, TurnHere. “We’ve had tremendous success in pioneering authentic online video ads for local businesses and real estate brokers, and look forward to working with WellcomeMat to reach even more people in need of professional online video services.”
