“SO what is Keek.com?” That’s what I asked when my niece asked me to join with her. It’s another video sharing social app. Like Vine, YouTube and a few others, Keek is videos.
Keek has been described as “the Twitter for video”, “Instagram of video” and a “micro version of YouTube”. and is often compared to a combination of other major social media networks such as Facebook, YouTube, Tumblr and Twitter. “Keek is more like a combination of YouTube, Facebook and Twitter than its direct competitors.”
“What makes Keek different is that it focuses on short, personal video uploads. A ‘keek’ can only be 36 seconds long, and is usually uploaded directly from a webcam or smartphone camera. So unlike many of the professional vloggers floating around on YouTube, the content is less polished – but also far quicker and reactive. Think of it like Twitter or Tumblr, only this time focused solely on video.” Keek launched in early 2011 to “create a social network that was more authentic and personal. We are committed to delivering the fastest, most engaging social video experience,” CEO Isaac Raichyk said in an interview.
So I joined a year ago and set up a channel. I have done about 36 videos and I really didn’t engage that much and when I looked a week ago, I have over 700 views!!! 700!! And that’s not even full using it. Well I decided to “use” it! Its 30-40 second videos about everything and anything. Mine are all over the place from my gardening to me on a train. For me it’s ANOTHER way to promote myself and my brand. Video is NOW!
When I decided to create two web series, I decided that I would release one on Keek. For something different, I am releasing a bi-weekly web series of my antics and adventures and tips and suggestions. It will be called The Really Quick James Lott Jr Show. I am curious to see how it does and what kind of audience I will get. I got the idea from seeing series being released on all kinds of platforms now. I just read about a series being released on Playstation!!
By the way, over the last week or so, I have been engaging and promoting my keek page: keek.com/profile/blakhopela. I’ve increased to almost 800 views!!!
