"Measuring mobile campaigns is key in demonstrating success and ROI for marketers," said Bruce Goldstein, CEO, Thwapr. "We can help them see in real-time, how their full-branded mobile videos are performing and exactly how and when they are engaging with their audience."
To view the CMOD, marketers log in to a secure, custom branded Web portal to view mobile video statistics and analytic data which is updated in real time and accessible at anytime. Key analytics and features in the CMOD include:
Do-It-Yourself Content Upload and Mobile Video Distribution -- Marketers can now upload and deliver their own video in an easy three step process directly from their desktop -- with no technical support required. Once a brand partner video is uploaded it can automatically be distributed to selected or segmented video SMS fans/subscribers.
Mobile Video Keyword Management -- The new dashboard allows marketers to set up new keywords right from the interface, so new campaigns can be executed immediately.
Content Management/Campaign Development -- Users can now view their video libraries in the dashboard to see thumbnails and view count, and upload date. They can then select a video for distribution; edit video title, description, tags, and public/private status to develop a targeted video campaign that is delivered in a customized viewing environment.
Location Based Video -- Each video is geo-tagged and a map is displayed to show the location of the video; location can be optionally enabled/disabled from the dashboard.
Privacy Settings -- Any video can be marked as public or private.
Public Links -- The dashboard now automatically generates both a Thwapr universal video shortlink and a bit.ly video shortlink which brand marketers can post to social media, emails, portals, newsletters etc.
