Who Is The Best Pitcher on Fast Pitch?

This week we launched a new video feature that brings Fast Pitch! full circle by allowing our members the ability to quickly create and embed video to their profile without ever having to leave Fast Pitch! In other words, you can now literally make your 'pitch' on Fast Pitch!

Communicating with video on our network brings a new layer of interactivity to the Fast Pitch! experience by giving our users the opportunity to add more personality to their profile as well as other forms of content added to their account.

Creating a video on Fast Pitch! is simple and requires only a camera and microphone (most laptops now come integrated with these). Users then click the 'Record' button and start talking. Once completed, the user clicks 'Save' and can preview the video. All videos are automatically added to the profile itself and can also be quickly embedded within other forms of content including Press, Classifieds, Events and Group Pages.
Adding video to a Press Release is a powerful way to convey excitement around your announcement

Amateur video is a huge phenomenon and has quickly become one of the fastest growing forms of social media on the web. Look no further than the success of You Tube and the millions of videos that have been created in recent years. Yet surprisingly, the majority of business professionals have yet to embrace video as a tool to convey their message.

Anyone who sells... must create a video

To encourage our users to embrace video, Fast Pitch! is running an 'Elevator Pitch! Contest' throughout the month of October. The contest will determine who on our network gives the best 'pitch' about their business. Our panel of judges plan to review thousands of videos over the next few weeks to come up with the Top 5 videos based on effectiveness, creativity, and clarity, The Top 5 videos will be posted on our network for an additional week and will be rated by our users to determine a winner.

The winning "pitcher" will receive a Lifetime Platinum Membership to Fast Pitch! valued at nearly $500.00 AND more imporantly, will have their video prominently featured on our video page as an example for how to make an effective 'pitch'. The added exposure promises to be quite significant for the winner.

The world is watching... It's time to throw out your first pitch!

Good Luck!
