Business Spotlight: Stareable
As a society we love convenient entertainment. And with smart devices and streaming services, entertaining ourselves is becoming increasingly easier. But do you ever think of the work that goes on behind the scenes to deliver the video content you enjoy? Let’s just say it’s no easy task. Content creators go through a lot of effort which can sometimes go unnoticed. But Stareable, this week’s business spotlight, wants to help these filmmakers and content creators succeed.
What is Stareable and What Do They Do?
The goal of Stareable is to help those who create video content, particularly for web series, build and engage their audiences. If you’ve ever tried to get your content in the eyes of as many people as possible, you know how difficult it can be! Many social media platforms have an algorithm that’s unfavorable to a lot of new filmmakers. But Stareable ensures your content gets to the right people.
Founder Ajay Kishore started Stareable in 2015 as a way to help web series creators get their content viewed by as many people possible in an inexpensive way. Creators can upload their content, either directly or embedded, and then monetize their shows quickly and easily. What’s really cool about this platform is that shows can be embedded directly from YouTube, Vimeo, or Facebook, and the views on Stareable will count as views on those other platforms! This is an ingenious way to maximize reach and views!
If creators are looking to monetize their shows, they have the option to use Strarable Enrich. This way fans can support their favorite shows through donations or monthly subscriptions.
On top of all of that, Stareable allows creators to connect with other filmmakers and even their fans. Stareable forums are the perfect way for fellow filmmakers to discuss their craft and look for ways to improve. And Stareable’s social media integration allows creators to not only schedule posts to Stareable, but to Twitter and Facebook as well. It’s a great way to keep your audiences engaged and updated.
