InvestmentPitch is proud to have worked closely with SilverCrest to develop a video marketing program to communicate their story and engage viewers.

The use of online video for investor communications has seen significant growth in the last year. Companies are using videos in a variety of ways, including posting the videos on their websites, where videos do a far better job of communicating a story than a basic PowerPoint presentation. Videos are ideally suited for social media networking sites, email communication, and search engine optimization.

According to comScore, Inc., producer of the monthly comScore Video Metrix service, 188.2 million Americans watched 52.4 billion online content videos in December, with a growing number viewed on mobile devices.

InvestmentPitch has created a marketing package for investor relations' professionals. The package includes producing a video news alert, hosting the video on a number of financial sites, and also embedding it into a press release that is distributed globally through two news services. This package reaches millions of viewers, all at a price less than a regular international news release.

Don Bates, of New York University's graduate public relations program stated, "If we have a choice between video and text when we visit websites, we will look at the video first and the text second, if at all."
