Over the past 8 years my passion has been online video. I’ve lived and breathed it for my entire professional career — and I’ve loved every minute of it. This has always been the most exciting area of technology for me, and there hasn’t ever been a more exciting time than now. It doesn’t seem like that long ago that I was graduating from college, going to work at Macromedia, and founding Viddler at 22 — since then the online video industry has changed a bit (to say the least). YouTube grew from relative obscurity to become the 2nd largest search engine in the world, and a critical destination for brands to develop and engage with their audience. Bettering this audience development experience for brands and helping them manage their YouTube presence and increase their views and subscribers has been my focus for the last year, and we’ve built something truly amazing. The best part? Now we get to share it with the rest of the world! Today we’re announcing vidIQ is coming out of beta! And we’re excited!
Just how excited?
About as excited as these dancing cows:
Okay, you get it!
While we have your attention, we would like to give our thanks to a few people, whom without their help, vidIQ would not be launching:
- The hundreds of brands, networks, and YouTube creators who have been giving us feedback every step of the way.
- The thousands of people who have signed up for our beta and have been patiently waiting until this moment.
- Our world class investors who believed in us very early on and continue to be an incredible source of expertise and guidance.
- For YouTube on having an awesome developer relations team and continually making APIs available for our team to build amazing things with.
We feel extremely blessed to be innovating in this space and encourage you to sign up and check out vidIQ for yourselves!
