Talk Market Archive
The Talk Market believes eBay is so yesterday with its text and picture auctions. The Talk Market is a video marketplace. Think of it as short infomercials for the products listed on the service. The ordering process utilizes Amazon Web Services Flexible Payment Service and that’s a good thing. Today Amazon has announced an investment in The Talk Market.
The company notes that their "patent-pending user-generated TV shopping channel platform enhances sellers’ video presentations with dynamic graphic overlays, custom motion graphics and soundtracks." After viewing their jewelry videos, I can say that this might actually have potential to be a success. When buying an expensive piece of jewelry, it’s good to see what it looks like "in-person" rather than just a few photos and some text. The jewelry is modeled and you can see what it looks like on a person. Naturally this isn’t needed for a category like electronics.
The amount of the investment was not disclosed and the transaction closed last month. Sadly there’s no embed option on the videos so you will need to check out their site to view the product videos.
