Reachoo.com: Bringing Videotizing to the Public

Sell Your Product: How to Effectively Videotize

Videotizing on Reachoo.com allows normal, everyday people to effectively advertise their product in 3-D. The same way that big name brands use commercials on television, people who are running smaller companies or who just have one or two items to sell are able to market their product just as effectively through Reachoo.com. When done correctly, the reach of online video marketing can be just as effective, if not more so, than regular commercial advertising.

Know Your Audience

The first step in effective videotizing on Reachoo.com is to know and understand your target audience. Who is your product for? Who is going to be most likely to buy it? Once you have an idea of who you want to reach out to, you can focus on creating an advertisement, or a videotizement, that engages with your target audience. Are you reaching toward a professional organization? Your presentation should look well thought out and appropriate for that vocational set. Are you aiming to capture the attention to a more elderly base? Be sure your presentation is easy to understand and directly applies to the needs of this generation.

Highlight the Positive while Presenting Honestly

Here at Reachoo, we value and reward users who portray their product honestly, and have smooth transactions with other users. Our ratings system is an important tool to gage whether or not a user has had successful transactions in the past, so it is necessary to always be honest and upfront when using Reachoo. That being said, in order to effectively sell an item or service it is important to focus on and accentuation the positive. Does your used vehicle have a small dent in it, or a scratch in the paint job? Be sure to mention it in the description, and display your entire vehicle in your video. However, spend a larger portion of your description and video, displaying the really great things about your vehicle, such as low gas mileage, unique color, or awesome safety features.

Remember, with Reachoo, YOU have the amazing tool of videotizing at your fingertips. Videotizing on Reachoo.com is a FREE and easy with no risk to you, so know your target audience, keep it short and simple, and accentuate the positive!

New Year, New You!

Every year, as tradition states, we look upon the New Year as a time to reflect and make positive changes, or, New Years Resolutions.

Everyone has skills that they can improve or fine tune and taking classes is a great way to exercise both mind and body. Under our “Services” section, Reachoo offers a myriad of classes and tutors available to suit your needs. This is an excellent way to sharpen your mind and keep you on your toes during an off season and to help you improve on the skills you may need to land your dream job!

Here’s to positive changes this year!

Holidays and Shopping: Getting Back into the Spirit

It is often times hard to remember, but as children, the holidays were an exciting time for special sweets, an assortment of gifts, and extra playtime with friends and family. It seems as we age, the little treats we once found special and exciting, just become added bits of stress into our daily lives. Chocolate and cookies just lead to weight gain, the weather leads to colds and flus, and finding the perfect gifts just become another chore. Here at Reachoo, we want to help you get back into the holiday spirit by helping ease some of your gift shopping anxiety.

When it comes to the people we care about, we want to show our appreciation for them by getting them a gift that is both meaningful and unique.  Shopping at your closest mall is not necessarily going to help you achieve this. Instead, why not try classifieds shopping? The selections are varied, one of a kind, and all at the convenience of your fingertips.

For me, it is important that any gift I give someone shows someone how much I truly value my relationship with them. I do that by getting a gift that is unique to their own personal tastes and something that they are not likely to find at the corner market. Whether this means a vintage jacket, an ornate antique, a funky painting, or a special car part, you’re likely to find what you are looking for on Reachoo- and have fun doing it! We hope that we can help take some of the stress away from holiday shopping so that you can get back to the root of what makes the holidays so beautiful. It is time to celebrate family, love, friendship, and to count our blessings. So go ahead, dig into those cookies, go make a snow angel, and feel that childhood holiday spirit; on us!

Welcome to the Twitter Zone

Twitter. It’s the latest and greatest craze, where people can “tweet” like little birds sending 140 characters worth of information to their followers hundreds of times a day, which can then be re-tweeted to reach just about anyone and everyone. Now these tweets can vary greatly in content. Some like to post about what they put in their sandwich, while others post with a little more substance. That’s not to say that the ingredients of ones sandwich aren’t important, in fact I’d be very curious to know how Rachel Ray takes her sandwich, but that’s besides the point.Twitter can be a great tool for social media and connecting us to all our users out there who want to stay updated on the latest and greatest from Reachoo! We post daily about all kinds of things- from ad listings we love, to exciting updates and new projects! Another awesome thing about Twitter is that it allows us all to communicate with one another. Spot our post about a home for sale that looks perfect for your son whom you’ve been slyly trying to get out of the house? You can easily re-tweet that post and he just might get the hint. Likewise, it also allows you to get in contact with us about things you’d like to see on our page- you can tell us what we can do to improve, or let us know what we are doing right! After all, that’s Reachoo’s most important mission- being in close contact with the users so that we can grant you all of your wishes and desires…at least when it comes to online classifieds!

So if you aren’t yet on the Twitter wagon, hop on! And if you are, be sure to follow us @Reachoo. While you’re at it, “like” us on Facebook. We can’t wait to connect with you all!

5 Simple Tips on Creating a Stellar Video Resume

It is 2012; you just gotten laid off and are now unemployed. Perhaps you are finishing your hard-earned degree at a university and cringe at the thought of the search for a career.  Despite the uncertain stability of our economy, employers are still endlessly searching for the “perfect” candidate. If done correctly, video resumes can give you the much needed advantage in marketing yourself to potential employers. Here are a few tips/guidelines to follow to ensure that your video resume is as effective as possible.

Video/Sound Quality

As you might expect, the quality of your video has the same effect as the quality of a paper resume. You wouldn’t give a recruiter a crumpled piece of paper as a resume so why give them a blurry image of yourself? Make sure the video is taken in a quiet room that is free of distractions so that the viewer can easily focus on you. The quality of your video and how you look are going to be the first two impressions the recruiter will have.

Dress Professionally

How you look is essential to the employer. Are you professional and presentable? The attire for a video resume, a video interview, or an in-person interview is all the same.

Keep It Short

The ideal time is between 1-2 minutes. Think about it as a preview for a movie—the goal of a movie preview is to tease you and to give you a taste of what the movie is about. The preview will also highlight certain aspects of the movie, but the overall goal is to get you in theaters. Your video resume should be concise and highlight your skills and achievements. Your objective is to get employers curious about you and invite you to an in-person interview.

Be Creative

One advantage of a video resume over the traditional paper resume is that you can showcase your character. Leverage this advantage and be creative in the process. In this case, you want to stand out from the other applicants. What makes you unique?

Review

This might be so obvious, that we sometimes forget. Cut, paste, and edit your video so that it flows. Use video editing programs such as Final Cut Pro or Windows Movie Maker to help you create your videos. Adding effects such as fade or dissolve might help the employer segment the video into your different ideas/points. Make sure the finalized product is done to your very best potential.

As of now, video resumes are not to replace a traditional resumes, but creating one provides the chance to complement one. Provide a link within your resume so that employers may easily access the video. Additionally, you can promote your video on social media websites or video classified websites such as www.reachoo.com. Simply create an account and your video resume may be viewed by the growing amount of visitors within minutes. Happy job hunting!

posting video ads on Reachoo

Internet classifieds have been revolutionized throughout the course of time: From Craigslist to eBay to hopefully one day, Reachoo. We hope to promote Reachoo in a way that it is discussed in your favorite cafe, sipping on that latte, while watching a video ad on that boat that you secretly have been stashing your tip money for. Or you want to move out of your house because your Asian mother disapproves of your A- because it’s an “Asian F” and you are sifting through the classifieds looking for the most affordable apartment. The problem with that is that you have no idea of what you are looking at, so you log onto Reachoo.com and see the video ads that show off the home, in HD video so you are able to see every crumb that your crazy mother has drilled into your head to see with a Hawk’s eye view.

You get the idea, video ads. It’s a fairly new concept — fun and easy to do. All you have to do is grab your digital camcorder, tape an ad, and post it up. The buttons are horizontal and oblong and the print is large. That’s what makes Reachoo.com user friendly. If you have an issue and if within reason that the customer service rep might be able to assist you with your problem (except with why the seller is not responding, unfortunately we cannot force people to put up contact information) but we’ll do our best to help you in any way we can.

Give Reachoo.com a try. There is nothing to lose, because it’s FREE! Yes, anything you do on Reachoo is FREE.
