Low-Price Video Host Vzaar Opens North American Office


Nearly half of Vzaar’s customers are in North America, and now Vzaar is, too.

Vzaar is one of the low-price leaders for business video hosting. Companies that want a more professional look for their videos than they get from YouTube should take a look. Not that all of Vzaar’s customers are small businesses: eBay, Getty Images, and TopGolf have all signed on.

While the company is based in the U.K. and counts over 1,700 customers in over 70 countries, its growing U.S. customer base convinced the execs that it needed a U.S. office. The location of that new office is Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

“An online video strategy is a must-have for every brand and every company, large or small,” said Jim Henry, Vzaar’s vice president of sales, who works out of the new office. “The U.S. market is leading the charge in harnessing the marketing and sales power of online video, and with our new North American office we are now ideally placed to capitalize on this opportunity, as well as providing even better support to our existing U.S.-based customers.”

Along with its office announcement, Vzaar threw out a few online video stats:

  • Video will increase from 30 percent of online traffic to 90 percent by 2013.
  • A webpage with embedded videos has a 53 times better chance of getting on the first page of search results than one without.
  • Videos in search results get clicked 41 percent more often than other pages.
  • 54 percent of U.S. companies plan to produce more online video in 2012.

Vzaar introduced a $29 per month video hosting plan for small businesses in February, 2012. The Express plan offers storage for 250 videos and provides 100GB of monthly bandwidth, enough for 18,000 plays.
