User generated video platforms help organizations request, collect, organize, and share UGC videos. Brands can then push collected videos to their social channels or website or download the videos to use in advertisements and marketing materials.
Why you need a user generated video platform
While it is possible to run a UGC campaign on a single social platform, using a hashtag, or manually, it’s typically best to use a platform designed for collecting UGC videos.
