As featured in the New York Times, Inc, Entrepreneur magazine and The Rise To The Top (ABC show), Viralskool is a video contest platform that allows people to make money by creating viral video ads for companies. It allows companies to tap into creativity of its community of 3,000 semi-professional and student filmmakers, control which videos go into distribution, and have them distributed to over 100 websites on the internet. Viralskool then provides an analytics platform that tracks regional exposure and shows companies its sales increase based on how the videos from the contest were viewed in that region.
Through its first video contest, Viralskool received over 2 million views worldwide as a result of one of the videos going viral and ending up being featured on CBS in the U.S. and FUJI TV in Japan. The contest cost Viralskool $3000 and proved to be 10x more effective than any other video advertising solution available on the market today, where for a cost of less than a snickers bar more than 1000 people watched a video created for Viralskool contest.
