Elevator Pitch

Company Overview

SlideBatch is an innovative new web application that cuts through content overload on the web with a simple concept of a “Batch”, which has ubiquitous appeal to both publishers and consumers. A “Batch” is the right mix of content, delivered at the right place and time to a target audience.

SlideBatch’s technology platform is robust, scalable and cloud-based, with a unique media-first approach that includes built-in encoding and playback of any mix of media types, including videos, images, documents, websites, music and podcasts. Easy authoring tools allow media to be collected from anywhere, directly curated from the Web using a built-in web search tool, uploaded from local hard drives and imported from popular cloud storage services.

The SlideBatch tool enables marketers and PR professionals to improve the quality, variety and frequency of published content, leading to deeper audience engagement. SlideBatch is a freemium product, with a featured free version to encourage wide spread adoption, with SaaS conversion to more features and branding options for professional, business and organizational use. A mix of marketing tactics will be used to drive adoption in our target audiences, including email campaigns, ad buys, sponsorships, social placements and influencer partnerships.

SlideBatch is also a publisher of well-curated, digital content. Batching of digital content is a new form of publishing–much like blogging was 10 years ago. SlideBatch is paving the way to “clean up” content around ideas, make it intelligent, engaging, re-usable, easy to find, follow and share. In short, the way consumers want and need it. SlideBatch’s publishing channels will be monetized with ads, sponsorships and promotions.

The potential market for SlideBatch is large and high growth – essentially anywhere digital content is organized, presented and shared with a purpose. Publishing tools and platforms in the space have been very successful, with SlideShare being the most similar competitor to SlideBatch.

“I’m using it to consolidate all of my media articles, another batch for photos clients ask for, another batch for testimonials (different batches for different industries) and more. Also, I’m creating “batches” of content that I’m finding on the Internet to consolidate the research I do for articles. Good for marketing, sharing content, training — even storing important files. “
