Newbies - what's going on? - updated:
You are lucky. You are about to discover a company with 20 employees who are working their butts off to introduce the next generation of interactive video technology to the world.
Your timing is enviable - longs have been waiting and waiting for the story to unfold - the price jumped to 30s a few months back as it looked then like it was happening - only to fall back painfully and dramatically to the low teens and even 10 in recent days.
So, what's the big deal now? The story is about to unfold in a major way:
Yesterday NFUSZ announced this a partnership with American Idol. No small accomplisment. In addition to AI using NFUSZ kiosks as vehicles for people to audition for the show, AI will be utilizing NFUSZ technology for social media interaction in the coming months. Here's the PR
, which includes this part:
<<To promote the search for America's next singing sensation, AMERICAN IDOL is also launching a social media campaign featuring nFusz' interactive video technology designed to increase fan engagement.
Videos posting on social media platforms contain in-video links allowing viewers to interact with the content in new ways. The nFusz technology allows fans to respond to the video messaging and calls-to-action right in the video>>,
A PARTNERSHIP with American IDOL (some of the wealthiest folks around involved) validates the interest by major entities in the technology. A recent article, as found in this fantastic post
, reveals the thoughts the President of Ad Sales for Disney/ABC, and now with the announced partnership it is clear she is talking about the NFUSZ technology!
<<We are thinking about ‘Idol’ a different way,” said Rita Ferro, president of ad sales for Disney/ABC Television Group
.. driven by social involvement>>
<<ABC is pitching advertisers to attach themselves to video related to “Idol” that is distributed digitally>>
<< also to capture new kinds of commercials that can be beamed to fans armed with mobile screens.>>
<<ABC will seek ad partners who will consider new ways to reach a “community”>>
<<new forms of advertising and media use.>>
THIS is what NFUSZ has been talking about for months now - using their next generation interactive video technology to connect with people in a whole new, more engaging way.
The possibilities are endless:
**Just a few days ago the company announced a Rap Battle competition that would be broadcast for live streaming, pay-per-view
, in 30 episodes . It's like American Idol for Rap fans! The first episode is Sep 29, and there should be quite a buildup to it within the rap community.
**ORU Marketplace is expected to formally announce a Visa Debit card in early September.
So what, right? It very well could be a big deal because it could be the solution for the non-banked to send money cheaper than Western Union - or to actually do banking transactions through their app. The MJ industry needs a way to do this,
and our CEO used an example of 10,000 stores offering the cards. Western Union(over 400,000 locations!) may well be involved here folks. What does this have to do with NFUSZ? They will get $7 per month per Premium User. Too much info to detail here but let's just say 1 signup per week per 10,000 stores equates to over $40 million in revenue to NFUZ because ORU is using the NFUSZ technology throughout their website to promote the products their members are offering.
**NFUSZ technology lends itself to Customer Relationship Management - CRM
- in a huge way by providing the tools that companies need. Two days ago NFUSZ announced their long-anticipated new release 3.0 - the worlds first video based CRM product. Here is the release.
It is a huge advancement, and the company has many super-users(ie major names) checking it out via weekly webinars. An excellent article with our CEO on the cover that shows JUST HOW INNOVATIVE AND EXCITING this technology is was just published in Marketing Tech Magazine, and can be found HERE
, It is definitely worth reading.
**Imagine watching a TV show, sports broadcast, or movie and being able to click on any part of the screen to get more information about whatever it is you are clicking on - or to buy it. NFUSZ intends to LEAD this coming Interactive Television Revolution.
Sure, most people want to be passive when they watch tv, but there are plenty that won't be. If you've ever thought "what a cool car" or "I know who would love to have that jersey" or "That would be my dream vacation spot" or "I love that dress Beyonce is wearing" -- well, you can see the potential there...NFUSZ could get a piece of every click.
There is WAY MORE than all this under the hood. Why? Because we aren't talking about a product here. This is a technology. And it is for video. The uses of video are endless. That means the potential payoff to NFUSZ is also ENDLESS. Here is the NFUSZ twitter page
, which often has tweets showing the latest videos related to any one of the many endeavors.
Our CEO is a visionary who thinks outside the box - in a 'different way'. He sold his prior company for over $200m -- he is a proven success.
These are the reasons longs have stuck with the company as things have been pushed back longer than expected.. Way longer. Anyone discovering the company today for the first time is IMO very lucky as this is a rare gem and the price is lower than longs ever thought it would get to again. Best wishes to all.
