Uscreen Featured Client: Onmitsu Kage

There are many businesses out there that have loads of videos but they do not have a point of contact with their viewers. Although your business may have a Facebook page, it can still be hard to distribute many videos to a global audience.

That was the problem our featured client, Onmitsu Kage, was facing. But, when they finally found Uscreen, it was a dream come true because they were able to bring the content that people wanted from all over the world and put it in one easy to find place.

CLIENT’S EXPERIENCE ON USCREEN

The menu setup is very easy to use; you can see the video in the center with other videos that are part of the video series on the right side. They are easy to find and are in the correct order for you to watch.

As the client says, “We are categorizing and editing the information so that it can be easily found on the site and categorized/cross-categorized by many different topics. This will allow the user/searcher of the information one place to go, not only for videos but, in the future, any materials written and developed for this art.”

The subscribe button works beautifully. When clicked, it becomes an interactive button that brings the user directly to a terms and service popup. Once the user agrees to the terms of service, they are then brought directly to the subscription page where they can sign up for any level of access they want. This is great because new customers are not looking around trying to figure out how to subscribe to their site. It’s simple and efficient and that’s what you want in this business.
