Good news today for filmmaker's that are part of the TurnHere filmmaker network as well as for customers which utilize Turnhere for professional video production services. Despite the economic recession, TurnHere is expanding its creative online video production network and has announced significant growth numbers today. The company states that they are on target to double video orders in 2009.
In addition to expanding their video production network, they are also expanding their direct division and sales team to support the growth in demand for creative videos for big brands. As part of this effort, they have also just brought on new a VP of sales, Stan Taigen, to help manage and drive this growth.
"In this economy, brands are focusing on the programs that deliver reach, cost efficiencies, engagement and ROI. At the same time, customers are looking for compelling content that speaks to them, not markets at them," said Bud Rosenthal, CEO for TurnHere. "The Social Web is redefining how a company or brand can connect with customers at deeper levels than previously possible through expensive broadcast productions or traditional Web marketing.”
The company posseses a large and growing network of more than 8,000 professional filmmakers across 70 countries. This network is responsible for creating more than 11,000 custom videos in the past year alone for customers and brands which include NBC, Williams-Sonoma, Pottery Barn, InterContinental Hotels, and many others across the media, publishing, retail, travel, legal, local and real estate industries.
