TurnHere Celebrates Its 20,000th Video With "Fall in Love with Video" Sweepstakes

Launches Campaign to Give Away Custom-Produced Video Profiles to 400 Small Businesses

EMERYVILLE, CA--(Marketwire - August 31, 2009) - Leading online video marketing services company TurnHere announced that it has produced an impressive 20,000 custom videos in just a year and a half. To celebrate the milestone, the company is spreading the joy with its upcoming "Fall in Love with Video" campaign and giveaway.

Even in the midst of a poor economy and slashed advertising budgets, TurnHere has achieved significant success and year-over-year growth compared with 2008. Fueling the impressive performance is the company's unique video production and advertising platform that lets brands and small businesses alike tell their stories and engage customers through creative and informative video shorts. Businesses have realized that online video is a powerful way to reach potential customers, and TurnHere's solution offers an affordable path to professional, web-optimized video.

During the "Fall in Love with Video" promotion, 100 lucky small businesses will win a professional, custom-produced video showcasing their service or product every week beginning August 31 and ending September 25th.

Here's how the "Fall in Love with Video" campaign and giveaway works:

--  Each week of the campaign, TurnHere will randomly select 100 winners
    to receive a free custom video profile shot onsite and produced by one of
    TurnHere's professional filmmakers.
    
--  Additionally, one winner each week will receive a $1,000 "Stimulus
    Package" giftcard to a leading retailer such as Costco, Best Buy, Staples,
    and Walmart.
    

Participants can enter via the "Fall in Love with Video" microsite, and can earn additional entries by referring up to five friends for a total of six weekly entries. Entrants must have a valid business URL to be eligible for the contest. Contest updates will be announced on the TurnHere blog, Twitter feed, Facebook page, and YouTube channel.

"More and more small businesses are turning to online video as an affordable and effective way of marketing themselves on the Web," said John McWeeny, COO of TurnHere. "We've been developing creative video marketing solutions for a wide range of small businesses -- from dentists and inns to florists and plumbers. The 'Fall in Love with Video' campaign is a great way to introduce small businesses to the power of video, and its proven ability to win new business, connect with their audience, convey their unique story, and differentiate themselves from larger brands."
