Online video companies expand real estate offerings
TurnHere Inc., an online video solutions platform, today announced a partnership to become a trusted video production partner for WellcomeMat, an online video management platform where site members market properties and local businesses. As part of the initial relationship, TurnHere will provide at least 250 local neighborhood videos for WellcomeMat’s new video search product.
Through the agreement, WellcomeMat will gain a video production partner with wide local reach, a proven style and extensive experience in the real estate and small- and medium-size business (SMB) verticals. In addition, TurnHere will be represented in WellcomeMat’s filmmaker directory, providing the company with access to prospective clients seeking videos for their local business or real estate listing. WellcomeMat will also display TurnHere video content on its search pages, directing prospective customers to TurnHere’s WellcomeMat profile page where visitors can hire a filmmaker, request a quote or contact TurnHere directly. Through the partnership, WellcomeMat will more than double the number of local video producers available through their proprietary platform.
TurnHere’s founder and CEO Bradley Inman is also the founder of Inman News.
