Virool Video Tool Vs Sincerity

By

I heard about the Virool tool from Entrepreneur magazine and gave it a try. The trial is very affordable and the promises were very intriguing. The thing I noticed right away was that this thing really works.....

Virool promises a group of subscribers who will watch the video in its entirety. Your Youtube.com views counter will go up with every paid view. The money in your account will start to subtract with each viewing until your account runs out.  Now, this thing works but I noticed that the views completely stop and my counter did not increase.

This might be a series of bots. I am not sure if they were real eyeballs or not. There were no comments on my videos which was a red flag. I have reason to believe that the video may have been watched or at least clicked on but most likely it was by someone who wanted to get credit. I am not sure if the people who watch these videos are paid. I sampled a few of these types of services. It seems to me I remember some of them were getting some kind of payment for each video they watched.

My conclusion is that I still like sincerity. I like the organic views. I like to get my videos in front of a real social media audience. To me the social media audience is obtainable in real time. You just have to do some homework ahead of time and make an introduction. It is totally worth it if you want to get interations with real human beings.

Some of my videos went up to 46,000 views and I know they were real views. These are views that I didn't have to pay for. I did another set of paid views through Adwords and an odd thing happened. I didn't see any traffic spikes on my videos, (I only recieved 80 views on one of my videos) and there was no indication that any real viewers came to my web site. I checked my Google analytics and didn't see any signs of real people coming through.

I'm not calling these guys a fraud but they do have my curiosity up. Would I invest heavily into them? For myself I would recommend creating a network of businesses and blogs that fit your target markets lifestyle profile. At least then you would be dealing with sincere people who care about your products and services.
