Step 1: Create a request for content (”Call Outs”)
A “Call Out” is a request for your audience to submit specific videos and photos. Design “Call Outs” (with possible incentives) to drive the acquisition of authentic content that will help support your programming priorities.
Step 2: Embed and promote your Call Outs on your website, Facebook and mobile apps to receive content
Easily embed customized SendUs “Call Out” and submission interfaces on your website, mobile and social properties. Your audience can submit videos/photos through several methods while providing the information you request, like contact details. Every submission goes through a click-through agreement - which automatically provides you with the media use rights.
Step 3: Curate, edit and manage submissions
Your team can collaboratively review the submitted content while annotating and organizing it. Quickly edit videos in case you want to clip out undesired parts before publishing or downloading. You can also add a pre-roll or post-roll clips – with your own message or advertisement.
Additionally, you can automatically search and pull desired content from social media (including Twitter, Instagram and YouTube) using hashtags, keywords, time/date and location.
Step 4: Publish to your favorite video player and distribute where you want and how you want
SendUs makes it easy for you to broadcast the curated content on your favorite publishing platform (YouTube video player, Brightcove, Vimeo, etc) and web properties (website, Facebook, YouTube channel). SendUs can automatically encode your or your sponsor’s message into the beginning or end of the video - helping drive additional advertising revenue!
Step 5: Download the best content from your UGC library and edit into your show
Your valuable library of authentic content enables the production of exciting and engaging programs, at a dramatically reduced cost. Download the best content in your preferred format and edit into episodes of your show or news program.
