Bideo.com is sponsoring a contest to find the worst marketing video on the web. The “Best Worst Video” contest (bestworstvideo.com) offers a $1,000 cash prize for the person who submits the video that receives the most votes. Additionally, Bideo will provide the company featured in the winning video with a $2,000 credit for a new marketing video on the Bideo video production marketplace.
The idea behind the contest is to promote Bideo’s newly launched video production marketplace. Bideo’s mission is to make it as easy as possible for anyone to order video production, especially those who think they don’t have the budget and have resorted to suspect DIY videos. “It’s become very clear that the use of video in marketing is now just part of the table-stakes,” says Bideo Founder and President, Dan Chipman. “Small businesses don’t have to be left behind in the video arms race. Bideo can help them find and hire the perfect videographer for their needs at almost any budget level.”
Participants are encouraged to scour the web for the most cringe-inducing videos they can find, then upload them on bestworstvideo.com. The contest closes at the end of April, so submitters will have one month to encourage as many friends as possible to vote for their submission—keeping in mind that a person can only vote once per video, per day.
In order to avoid any hard feelings on the part of companies featured in the nominated videos, Bideo will offer them 10% off their next purchase through the Bideo platfrom, just for being nominated. “We hope people have a great time with the contest and find hilarious videos, but we’re not doing this to hurt anybody’s feelings,” Chipman says. “We know how hard it can be to produce a good video. We’ve had a few flops of our own. Hopefully, the net result is a little laugh for everyone involved and an idea of how to move forward on the next video project.”
