About ShopWatchBuy:

The ShopWatchBuy video marketplace is THE place for video marketing and video shopping. You can do product marketing by video with your own viral video ad. Upload your marketing video, or use your youtube videos. Shoppers can watch video reviews, company video or product reviews. Every user gets a video storefront with an rss feed. This is great free advertising. It’s like your own QVC or HSN channel for product video advertising. Plus, we are a video platform and you can say my video is on ShopWatchBuy!

Most video sites have millions of random videos. How can you break through the noise? Most shopping sites are just images. How can a shopper really see and hear video? The ShopWatchBuy marketplace is unique in that EVERY listing, no just some, has an associated video! Sellers can upload to the video platform (or use an existing YouTube video) and associate any link for the Buy Now Button.

Video marketing is the latest in Internet advertising. That’s because online video lets potential customers see and hear about the product. Video advertising is the best way to inform, engage and attract new customers. Upload or import your video ad today!
Video Shopping

Imagine walking into a store with NO salesperson to help you. That’s what most websites are like with just images and text. At ShopWatchBuy you can watch video of product reviews, product demonstrations or company videos. It’s sort of like QVC or HSN only on the Internet. You can also share videos, leave comments and add favorites. Join today!

    Visit http://www.shopwatchbuy.com. Spend no more than 5-10 seconds on the home page. What do you think the site is about? It looks to be a site similar to both eBay and Youtube maybe.  Where I can sell or buy, but with the help of video….
     
    Now go back to the site and comment on various elements of the site. Well, to start off with, I feel that the landing page is a little overwhelming with too much information.   It’s simply impossible for me to focus on one main area of the site at this point.   The first thing I do is to click on the video on the right hand side of the screen.   I really like this idea of presentation.  It’s a great way of “trying out the product”.    I continue around the website.  I want to note that I love the color scheme.  The About Us tab opens to a very well explained presentation of your site.   Great use of color for the fonts, very clear font used.   I continue through the tabs on the left side, Great Disclosure, Privacy Policy and Terms.   I like the idea of it being Free to Join.  I continue through all the tabs at the top.  I really like the Buy and Sell pages.
     
    I am just concerned at this point about your landing page.  To me, it’s too overwhelming of an initial presentation of your site.
     
    What do you find bothersome? What do you like? As mentioned above, I like the layout, I like the look and feel.  As for the landing, or opening page, I am overwhelmed with too much information.   I would actually probably delete everything on the bottom of the page after Video Marketing and Video Shopping and add that to the About Us page or FAQ page.
     
    What do you think of the sign up process? It’s very easy.   Within seconds of signing in, I was able to jump right in and start selling or buying.
     
    Would you sign up for a free trial/free account? If not, why? I think that I would sign up to try the site.  I frequent eBay and other sites and feel that with the right amount of exposure and social networking, this site could really become a great selling site!
     
    How do you think the site compares to other similar sites/competitors like ebay.com and youtube.com? I really do like the concept and feel that it could be very competitive with the above-mentioned sites.  I’m not fond of the landing page though, as mentioned above.  I definitely feel that cutting out some of the unnecessary clutter is crucial to how others will perceive the site.  I don’t get a very professional feel at this time.
     
    Please share any additional feedback/comments you may have. As previously mentioned, I feel that the text material at the bottom of the landing page should be moved to perhaps a FAQ page to declutter the landing page a little bit.   I like the video and like the fact that the vision presentation is well displayed on this particular page, so I would really suggest you not move that around.  However, if the text area is moved to a FAQ page, this too could be arranged  a little different to make it more user friendly.  When things are clumped together, it tends to overwhelm the visitor who might not have the patience to continue around the site.
     
    I feel it’s a great concept and a great site and I will definitely be looking forward to using it.
