Video Greetings

According to United States Census Bureau, in the year 2011 there are 16.1 million wartime veterans of the living 21.6 million heroes who served in wartime duty during a period of war.

Often we do not observe the day as it should be, a day where we actively remember our ancestors, family members, our loved ones, our neighbors, and our friends who have given the ultimate sacrifices. If the Veteran you know is in the same city where you are living, make sure you visit and talk to them in person and Memorial Day is the perfect day to listen to them, learn from them and applaud for their memories and sacrifices.

For any start-up one of the main challenges is, taking the idea into the reality, demo the product to the potential customers and running it by thought leaders. It is very important and vital for the founders to demo the prototype to the users, industry leaders and listening and changing when it is necessary. When we first thought of the idea of developing a platform which helps users to create Video Invitations and Video Greeting online in few minutes with event management capabilities, We started with our adviser Shashi Bellamkonda, Vice President, Digital Marketing at The Bozzuto Group, well known as “Social Media Swami” and an adjunct professor at George Town University. The very first advise from Shashi for us is to start attending Start-up communities and he personally took me to one of the Tech Cocktail events in DC.

Tech Cocktail helps the local tech communities and give entrepreneurs a place to get informed, get connected, and get inspired. In the very first event itself, I had a chance to meet Timothy Chi Founder and CEO of www.weddingwire.com who explained the start-up entrepreneurs the challenges he went through and how he learned from users. It was a great learning experience for us and since then we are attending and staying connected to the start-up community. I personally like the after event “Cocktails” where we can share the pains and gains with fellow entrepreneurs, thought leaders and friends.

After couple of months passed, Inwiter’s Beta website was ready . Jen Consalvo was kind enough to provide us a space/stall to Demo our services. It was such a great learning experience and it really helped us a lot to change our User Interface and now the users are quite happy and we can see that with the feedback we are receiving on our new look and feel.

I am honored to have such a young and talented team and we all strongly believe in Aristotle’s saying “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” On behalf of the Inwiter’s team, I would like to thank our adviser Shashi and the Tech Cocktail for providing such a great service to start-up community.

This week is more than just Teacher Appreciation week. It’s also National Nurses Appreciation Week. Nurses are the first responders. They see us first when we’re sick and they provide us with care daily.

I instantly think of the wonderful nurses who cared for me when I had my son. They were fabulous! And since I saw the same ones everyday, I felt more comfortable with the level of care I received. It’s life changing situations like a birth, a serious illness, a surgery–that really makes us appreciate the nursing community. Continue reading Video Greetings for Nurses Appreciation Week

I was researching about how many Mothers Day Greeting Cards and Father’s Day Greeting cards are being sent every year to estimate the upcoming work load on our Inwiter’s team. I came across a wonderful Info-graph which explains and compares both the occasions with eye catching visuals.

Infograph Credited by Daily-infographic.

Undoubtedly Mothers day is more popular than Father’s day. In fact if you see the numbers, there are 13 million more number of mothers than fathers. As per American Greeting Card Association, Mother’s Day uses 133 million greeting cards where as Father’s day uses 90 million. Around 40 countries celebrate Mothers day. Father’s day started little late as well getting inspired from Mother’s day celebrations.

I believe it is better to keep it simple and Celebrate both. Create a memorable Video Greeting using Inwiter for Mother’s day and Father’s Day. Collect your Moms and Dads memorable images, videos and create a personalized video greeting. Add flavor by adding funny captions, message on each image or video. We added number of music tracks this week. Add soothing background music and send it to your Mom and Dad.

Graduation Day is one proud moment in any student’s life. It is a majestic moment for their parents, teachers, friends and for people who care and value them. It is the day when they complete their education and are free to step into the world and make their own career decisions. It is one of the important occasions that is often described as a “Rite of Passage” in the life of any student.

If you attend any graduation ceremony, it is full of energy and filled with emotional moments, happiness, laughter, hats thrown in the sky and tears of joy and sadness of departing with their friends. It is a moment of pride for a student as well as the parents with a sense of achievement.

Graduation-Day

In United States alone, about 3.4 million students are expected to graduate from high school in 2012-13. It is expected that the average number of college graduates per year in US is around 1,750,000. Graduation is the fifth most important occasion to buy greeting cards. As per American Greeting Card association, 67 million units are purchased for Graduation ceremonies in USA every year.

Last year I attended one of my friends graduation party in Virginia. I spent around 2 hours searching for a greeting card in couple of shops. Couldn’t find the one I wanted. Finally bought one, but I was not happy with the message they have on the card. It is printed and couldn’t change the message. It was very difficult to find the card you want. Most of the cards are repeated and stereo type in nature.

If you are planning to attend any of your family members or friends Graduation party, you don’t need to go through the same pain I went through last year. Inwiter provides you a web application where you can create your own Video Greeting congratulating the Grad in minutes. You can use your images, videos and images or videos of the person who is graduating. Arrange and shuffle them around the way you want, add your own message on the image or video, add nice back ground music provided and send it. To make it more personalized, you can also record your own personal video message as part of the Video Greeting.

Graduation Day is a glorious movement in any student’s life. It is the first step of the new journey in his/her life. Congratulate the new Grad with a very personalized and thought provoking Video Greeting.

Every year millions of greeting cards are being sent to our heroes around the world welcoming and greeting them with the touch of home. Especially in the holiday season we see families of our beloved Troops printing their images, family pictures, decorated Christmas Tree pics and photos of their lovely pets in Fedex offices and USPS.

Technology is helping the families to better communicate if the Military base has internet facility. Inwiter is a web application which helps the families of our troops to send a Video Greeting online for all occasions and Holidays. As long as the military base has internet, you can save a trip to the Post Office and don’t need to buy paper greetings. Take a picture of your decorated Christmas Tree, gifts received by your kids from their Grandpa and Grandma, or simply record a Video greeting online and send it. It is as simple as that.

All it takes is few minutes to create a Video Greeting using Inwiter. You can express your true emotions and feelings. Being apart for months from their family and friends, they would love to see you and your family’s real images, live video than a printed greeting card designed by some one else. They would love to listen to their family, kids greetings, their voice and screams. Try using Inwiter’s free Video Greetings feature to greet and salute our heroes on coming July 4th.

Thank you to all our men & women who is serving and protecting our country and to all the organizations looking out for them & their families while they are away.

Our siblings are our best friends and family members. They know us better than anyone and understand our quirky ways. At least that’s the case with most brothers and sisters. So how do you step outside the box and show them you care? Traditional birthday cards just don’t seem to cut it anymore. They’re boring and so impersonal.
