Vivoom turns user-generated content into user-created ads
The Boston-based firm offers a platform that takes the next step for UGC, embedding selected user video inside the brand’s video.
The biggest difference between today’s advertising and advertising in the days of “Mad Men” is the current importance of users who create and share content about your brand.
A user passing around imagery showing a product being used, particularly if it comes with that user’s implied endorsement of said product, has more value than truckloads of ad impressions.
Often, brands sift user-created content to curate the best photos of real people eating their hot dog or the best videos describing how much they love driving their Subaru. They might conduct a contest and display the dozen best hot dog photos or link to the best Subaru-appreciation video.
Since 2014, Boston-based Vivoom has been taking this a step further, offering a white-label platform so brands can automatically add user content like videos into a brand-created offering. And then the user can share that result, presenting a more completely packaged brand message.
