TEESTER is an end-to-end solution for brands to easily create and broadcast user generated videos.

Through authentic, relevant and high quality videos made directly by their customers, brands are able to tackle four main challenges: conversion rates, customer acquisition, SEO and loyalty. As an ROI-driven solution, TEESTER provides brands with:

  • Community-created (employees and consumers) video content optimized for different formats and shareability across social media, marketing channels and product pages;
  • Automated post-production capabilities to quickly generate videos at scale with an immediate and measurable impact on sales;
  • A tailor-made video player dedicated to e-commerce with in-video shoppable capabilities.

Following international success with 100+ brands including Disney, Weber and MAC Cosmetics, TEESTER was found to boost sales and conversion rates by +68%.

“We know our consumers are craving authentic storytelling, and are content creators in their own right. With Teester, we love how we are able to scale video production and empower our communities to create content with us that we can amplify across all our channels,” said Sabrina Herlory Rouget, Executive Director, MAC Cosmetics France.

“Teester is a cost-effective way to outsource our video production, provide parents and shoppers with answers, and show off our products using a more authentic and less ‘salesy’ approach. In fact, when parents have a question about a product, they often find the answer in the videos made by other parents,” said Sandrine Roucheray, Digital Marketing & Customer Relationships Manager, VTech France.

“Leveraging Teester to create user-generated videos allow us to achieve three strategic goals: improve the user experience on our digital platforms, automate large-scale video creation, and give our customers a new way of sharing their experience with our brand,” said Benjamin Boulic, International eCommerce Director, Petit Bateau.

“The power of video and authentic consumer experiences is unequivocal. 96% of consumers find videos useful to make an informed purchase decision and 88% trust customer videos as much as word of mouth. TEESTER allows brands to enlist their most powerful ambassadors: their customers,” said Julien Chevalier, CEO at Teester.
