eBiz Viewlets - It's Not JUST About eLearning Anymore

The Viewletin
An Inside ‘Take’ on All Things Viewlet
~by ViewletMarm


Viewlets are a perfect complement to promote your eBiz products and services--and in ways you might not even think about. For example, almost two years ago, I told you about how ViewletBuilder7 helped to 'close the deal' on a Jeep sale. Now, years later, and with all the enhancements available in Qarbon's authoring tools (ViewletBuilder7 and ViewletQuiz4) and Viewlet hosting servces (ViewletCentral), it is time to think 'outside' the Viewlet when it comes to creating sales, marketing and tradeshow demos. For example:

Recently, one of my daughter's college friends wanted to upgrade to an iPod Touch. But, as with most college kids, money is tight, so to do this, he had to sell his iPod Nano. What could he do to make his product stand out from the pack? Here's what we did (using ViewletBuilder7):

1. Imported images of the iPod Nano into a blank project.
2. Used color, shape and arrow tools to emphasize and enhance the iPod Nano's key features.
3. Customized slide sizes using the Crop tool.
4. Published the Viewlet to Qarbon ViewletCentral as a Flash file.
5. Published out 'static' images of the iPod Nano from the Publishing Wizard.

If you think about it, ViewletBuilder7 is a great tool for creating dynamic product tours (via a Flash or FLV file) as well as catalog pics (via the Images publishing option) to sell the products online, via pic messaging, emails and more. In this case, we decided to post this in a few online classified sites, including Craigslist.

For the Craigslist ad, we used the static gif images created from ViewletBuilder7 with the listing. In the description, we also included a link for viewers to take a 'virtual tour' of the iPod Nano too. Both of these 'selling assets' (product GIFS and SWF files) are reusable again and again--another great bonus achieved using ViewletBuilder7 and Qarbon ViewletCentral.

Don't you agree that it's time to think outside the Viewlet? Image how you could use this technology to promote your own eBiz products and services online (eBay, Amazon, Yahoo Shops, Google Store, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter...etc.). Viewlets are NOT just about eLearning anymore.

Your next big sale could be just a VIEWLET away!

Until next time...
Happy Viewleting!
