Pivotshare helps media creators and publishers sell their digital video content direct to their audiences, on our platform or your own site.
|Scooped by Robin Good|
Pivotshare is a web service that allows any author or independent publisher to create a professional-looking video venue where to showcase, organize and (optionally) sell access to video and audio content.
Video channels created on Pivotshare will have a personalized URL such as robingood.pivotshare.com, and you can further brand the channel with your selected profile picture or logo and your favorite background.
Video channels can be displayed as "showcases" or "libraries" depending on the quantity of material you have available, can be embedded on any web site and can be easily viewed across all types of screens and devices, from desktop to mobile.
On Pivotshare you can upload directly .MP4, .MOV, .SWF, .FLV, .AVI, and .MP3 files and organize them into discrete collections. You can add names, descriptions, relevant tags as well as decide how you want to make this material accessible.
You can for example let everyone see freely certain content, while at the same time making a "tip jar" facility available and setting your preferred minimum tip level. Or you can decide to set a "monthly subscription price", rather than a "rental" or "purchase" fee.

It is also possible to invite and collaborate with other authors / publishers contributing all to the same video channel.
Pivotshare is definitely a gret solution for independent authors and publishers, who are looking to start their commercial video channel online with the minimum effort and the maximum of results.
There are no costs involved. Pivotshare keeps a fixed percentage of your incoming revenues (unclear how much exactly).
Free to use.
