OTTAWA, Oct. 22, 2012 /CNW/ - VideoPages Inc., an online and mobile business advertising directory featuring approximately 16 million businesses in the United States and Canada, today announces the launch of its National Video Advertising Solutions. The service, a first of its kind, places video advertisements directly in front of ready-to-buy consumers, at a time when it counts most-when they are searching for a product, service or brand via their computer or mobile phone.
"Now, national advertisers can use the persuasive power of video to easily and affordably promote their brand, product or service, directly to a nationwide audience of on-the-go consumers who are looking for great, local deals and information," said Noel Tarabocchia, Founder & CEO of VideoPages Inc. "Our online and mobile video advertising solutions help individual businesses and franchises to effectively reach local audiences, nationwide. In preparation for our upcoming consumer awareness campaign, we are offering generous incentives to early adopters of our new national video advertising service. National advertisers will gain the best ROI by implementing their video advertisement with VideoPages prior to the start of our consumer awareness campaign launching early January 2013. This campaign will be designed to direct online and mobile consumers towards our services and will feature a unique contest geared towards obtaining user retention, contributed videos, photos and much more."

"In the ever-evolving electronic world that we live in, it is becoming increasingly important to be relevant in online spaces and strong in social media outlets. We are excited about the rollout of the mobile application which brings access to more information about our products directly to the fingertips of so many of our potential customers. And we are confident that the educated and forward-thinking demographic that represents our loyal customer base will be well served by this innovative advertising product."
"We are working closely with our members to assist them in driving more traffic into their stores by increasing their visibility on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter and others," said Jim Duff, President of Flooring Canada. "We believe using VideoPages can certainly enhance our online and mobile presence nationwide. By placing our brand directly in front of ready-to-buy consumers, engaging them through the powerful and compelling medium of video and driving them directly to our national site, we are confident that this element fits perfectly with our overall online and mobile strategy. We are excited about the possibilities and results this strategy will deliver to our members."
"As an organization aimed at helping all types of charitable causes, we are very excited by how VideoPages will help Givezooks! get our word out to a much broader audience across North America," said Carol Schrader, CEO and Co-Founder of Givezooks!
