A new and innovative social video network, Skits is set to launch in Nigeria this September. The service allows people record and share ‘skits’ – which are 15 second videos that capture unique or interesting moments in their daily lives. Skits enables users monetize their creativity by endorsing brands they care about. This will in turn help brands better market themselves by using socially engaging video content.
According to the Founders:
Skits is a new and innovative social video network that reimagines the relationship between content and advertising, such that ads no longer have to be intrusive, but instead can be beautifully and creatively blended into the content. Users on Skits record and upload engaging 15-second videos—called ‘skits’—that capture unique and interesting moments in their daily lives. Users can monetise their skits by performing a brand endorsement during those 15 seconds, thus creatively blending the brand into their story. If the brand approves the endorsement, the user earns rewards in the form of mobile airtime credited to their phone. Brands also reward users with airtime for watching these skits and sharing them across their social networks. Skits redefines the primary beneficiary of advertising spend as the consumer.
Skits has been developed by a talented team of MBAs and skilled tech developers and designers. To learn more about Skits ahead of its launch, visit www.skits.com
