MindBites is an end-to-end video publishing and commerce platform. They work with video content creators of all shapes and sizes to enable them to sell their video content on the web, on-demand and via mobile devices. MindBites content partners upload, manage and price their own video content, which they can then make available for sale through the MindBites marketplace and/or through custom video-on-demand stores that can be built off of the MindBites platform and designed to look like and integrate into their own sites.
MindBites handles all sorts of video content — from 5 minute lessons on Algebra to 90 minute sales seminars to 60 minute yoga classes to 10 minute guides designed to help you repair your home treadmill or learn how to stripe a parking lot. Additionally, MindBites partners can create and sell courses or bundles made up of their individual videos; the ability to sell these series means that these partners can encourage users to upsell to larger purchases in exchange for discounts relative to what they would pay for the individual videos included in a series based upon a la carte video prices.
MindBites content partners are also a diverse group — the MindBites solutions team works with enterprise clients that are generally more established video production houses or digital content publishing companies looking for paid content consulting services as well as more robust video platform features. Different MindBites video-on-demand platform levels offer a range of options for both individuals and small/medium businesses looking to sell access to their video content online.
