WeVideo for Business provides small businesses a virtual video production facility in the cloud, enabling editing, collaboration and sharing across any device - smartphone, tablet, laptop or personal computer.

Industry research continues to demonstrate the impact online video can have on building awareness, generating site traffic and influencing purchase decisions. For example, one study revealed viewers are 85 percent more likely to purchase a product after watching a product video (source: Internet Retailer). Another found videos increase consumers' understanding of a product or service by 74 percent (source: Quicksprout).

"Despite its proven value, many small-business marketers have hesitated to embrace online video due to the complexity of traditional desktop video tools or the high cost of outsourcing video production," said Jostein Svendsen, cofounder and CEO of WeVideo. "WeVideo for Business removes the complexity and makes it easy and affordable for marketers to create their own videos in house."

WeVideo for Business integrates new professional tools from best-of-breed providers, including GoAnimate for animation of explainer and how-to videos; Wistia and Vidcaster for video hosting and publishing; Brainshark for presentation videos; music micro-licensing leaders Rumblefish Music for high-quality production audio; and RE:Vision Effects Twixtor ® for stunning slow- and fast-motion effects.
