One of the themes I think we will see this year are services that take the offline and move it online and vice-versa. I believe in this theme as my startup takes the offline and moves it online. This past weekend I wrote about Suite Arrival, another service that takes the online and moves it offline.
A new service launching today from the Jackson Fish Market continues the theme. The service is named Thrilled For You and is a video guestbook kiosk software. It’s like the next version of the cheap disposable cameras that are left on tables for guests to use. I could see professional videographers purchasing this service on a white-label basis and then including it in their overall video recording packages.
The Jackson Fish Market team explains how they came up with the idea, “Last July, our own Jenny Lam got married. While there was a professional photographer, several amateur photographers, and a professional videographer (all of whom did a great job), there was still an opportunity for a different kind of documentation – the personal wish for the new couple spoken straight into the camera.”
