While $23 Billion worth of Timber is bought and sold every year from small mom and pop woodlots in North America and Europe alone, the network of offline relationships that once made this market work is in the process of disintegrating as land passes down to a new generation of landowners. WoodsCamp.com more than triples the efficiency of wood procurement – moving the process from door knocking and kitchen table conversations to social networks and the web. The unprecedented transparency and efficiency of WoodsCamp’s technology enabled timber brokerage is unlocking trapped value for landowners while delivering the hardest and most complex part of the forest industry’s supply chain at a lower marginal cost.

Currently almost all video is presented using a standard layout – containing a thumbnail image, title and short description. But there’s no previewing capability, so viewers have no idea what they’ll see in the video. The result is lower click-throughs, shorter attention spans and higher abandonment rates.

VidSnippets’ web-based product solves this by enabling easy creation of custom summary clips that link to the source video. These clips can be embedded on websites or shared over social media. We save people time, effort and frustration, while giving content providers a great way to stand out, capture viewer attention and increase engagement.
