Online video distribution service Vimeo has been working hard to build its reputation as “the world’s best creative community.” Vimeo launched when the internet video market began to take off during the previous decade. Realizing that the company would never be able to compete with YouTube on a macro level, Vimeo refocused itself as a purveyor of tools and services for independent video producers and filmmakers. Over time, Vimeo has introduced things like digital sales and subscription services that make it easy for producers to sell their videos online.
In its latest move to expand its offerings, Vimeo is introducing Vimeo Business:
…our community is the driving force behind Vimeo Business. Over time, you’ve given us tons of feedback about what you need most: the ability engage with customers and generate leads, market new products, and seamlessly collaborate with colleagues. We built Vimeo Business precisely to address all those things and more.
Some key features of Vimeo Business:
- Unlimited bandwidth in the Vimeo player with no weekly limits, and the ability to upload up to 5TB total of video.
- In-depth video stats when you connect Vimeo to your Google Analytics dashboard.
- Work seamlessly with colleagues, clients, video pros, and more — add up to 10 team members to help manage your account and videos.
- Generate leads with clickable CTAs and e-mail capture in the player, then send the info to MailChimp, Constant Contact, and Campaign Monitor.
- Powerful privacy: password protection, domain-level privacy, and private link sharing.
- Player customization: add your colors, logo, and more.
- Upload videos from Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive, and Box.
