Funny moments, embarrassing situations and cool music videos... this is what’s video site Play offers. But there’s more to video portals than three-minute orgasms of online laughs. A social networking platform like Play can give your business a competitive edge. If you’re looking to sell property, for instance, you can upload a virtual tour of the space and advertise it. For free.

This is exactly the gap Madison Property Fund Managers took when they decided to launch a virtual tour of their latest property developments in Woodstock, the Buchanan Square and Newmarket Junction. The first is listed as a heritage site and was built in the 1900s. The second retains its original industrial design elements and offers beautiful views of the mountain and city. Two great properties, which offer atmosphere and affordability, but how do you sell them if you can’t show people what you’re selling? This is where the virtual video tours come in. By showing people the worth of your property online you can coax them into taking the next step.

Since you can upload as many videos as you want in any file format you choose, Play offers you an easy and cheap way to get your message out. At the touch of a search button you can find whatever you’re interested in, whether it’s hot property or hectic entertainment.

More about Play
Play is South Africa’s answer to YouTube. It’s an easy to use video portal where you can upload video and share it with friends. Once you’ve uploaded your video you get a unique URL which makes it easy to send or save the video. If you have your own website or blog you can even funk up its look and feel by embedding a Play video on your site.

Play is not just a place to upload and share video. You can also interact with the videos other people loaded by leaving a comment or adding it to your personal list of favourites.

Basically, this is a site where you can get anything from unreleased advertisements, home-made music videos or movies to animal videos and blooper videos at the touch of a play button.
