Our Show Player will get your show and its past episodes on your blogs, Web sites, and the major social networking sites (MySpace/Facebook) with the flick of a check box, or the paste of some code. We also of course support all the geeky RSS tech you can think of.
Consider Community. Blip lets people comment on each video, but you may want a larger social network for your show. Several successful shows on Blip use the free service Ning.com. › See Distribute for details.
We split any money made from ads on your show 50/50. Blip enables you to have ads or sponsors before a video (pre-roll) during (overlay) or after (post-roll).
Start by enabling the Blip Blend in the Advertising Dashboard. Build traffic! Then give us a call. We love to get sponsors for shows that have developed a large, or loyal audience. When starting out, look around your home town for local sponsors.
We strongly urge you to gather promotional materials (i.e. a large and small logo, generic thumbnail, hi-res 30 second trailer, one-sheet of descriptions, cast/crew, contacts). If you get a copy to us, we can more easily promote your show, should opportunity present itself. › See Advertise for details.
