Santa Clara, CA (PRWEB) April 18, 2012
Cinsay, Inc., a Texas-based next-generation social video commerce provider, is launching its Smart Container technology at [DEMO Spring 2012 today before the technology industrys most prominent media, analysts, investors and entrepreneurs. The Smart Container is an easy-to-use eCommerce storefront aimed at helping individuals, first-time entrepreneurs, small and medium-sized businesses and enterprises make money online without a website. Customers will be able to use video, photos and other images to sell their goods and services, take an order and complete the transaction from within the Smart Containers video player.
We are delighted to host Cinsay and have them showcase their new technology this year, said Matt Marshall, executive producer of DEMO. DEMO Spring 2012 is being held April 17-19, 2012 at the Hyatt Regency Santa Clara. Cinsays six-minute DEMO stage time is scheduled for 4:40pm today, April 18th, and its DEMO kiosk is #D14.
Everyone here is excited to have been chosen as one of the DEMO Conferences presenting innovators, stated Cinsay, Inc. founder and CEO Christian Briggs. We feel honored that they invited us to participate. Named one of Americas Most Promising Companies by FORBES, Cinsay will also announce the public beta launch of its Smart Container.
eCommerce For Everyone
Briggs asks the question, What if selling on the Internet was as easy as uploading video to YouTube or sharing a post on Facebook or making money on Craigslist? He believes the Smart Containers ease-of-use will make eCommerce a simple action, interaction and transaction for businesses and consumers.
Smart Containers eCommerce, social media, analytics/reporting, CMS and security functionality make it the perfect tool, even for individuals wanting to sell just about anything.
We started Cinsay to bring eCommerce to everybody, said Briggs. With just a few clicks and our iPhone app you can create a viral video online store. It’s a bit like YouTube Meets eBay.
It includes a free merchant account so anyone can sell online on their Facebook, website or blog, he said. Anyone can shoot a video or snap a picture with their iPhone, put them in our viral video shopping cart and start selling on Facebook, Briggs stated. Using our Smart Container store anyone can be in business, because customers can run credit card transactions from inside the player on Facebook, their blogs, websites, or wherever their customers are, he noted.
They can also collect leads, or donations, or link out to any page on the web, said Briggs. As a host/SaaS (software-as-a-service), the Smart Container employs the first comprehensive eCommerce merchant system and content management system disguised as a video player. Our Cinsay Smart Container takes the store with it wherever it is embedded, whether on social websites such as Facebook, blogs, other websites or mobile devices, Briggs emphasized.
Social Commerce Made Real
The Cinsay Smart Container is a social sales engine that can be deployed anywhere the customer may be, said Cinsay senior vice president of marketing and media services Kyle Nelson. Our clients can take our Internet storefront viral by sharing it with their friends, just like they do with photos and videos today, said Briggs. Smart Container is also a lead-generating machine that allows prospects to contact clients from within their videos. This extends the engagement and tells vendors whether leads are qualified, and interested. Once deployed, users can manage Smart Container storefronts from one simple interface, update videos, change products and pricing, launch special promotions and more. Their stores are updated everywhere mobile, social, web — instantly.
To Market, To Market.
Cinsay will help its clients 1) attract, 2) interact and 3) transact on social platforms to drive a meaningful ROI through ReferredMEDIA.com, its Affiliate Network that attracts an audience of 7 million buyers daily. According to Nelson, trends show the bulk of time people spend online is on Facebook, blogs and other social media sites rather than focus on pay-per-click campaigns, in order to drive prospects to their websites.* We place our storefronts in front of people where they actually are, he stated.
This referral network allows merchants to promote special offers to their affiliates loyal audiences and drive promotional transactions such as sale items, coupons, discounts, rewards programs, giveaways and sweepstakes from within affiliate blog sites and Facebook pages.
