Effortless Distribution: Download it – Stream it – Ship it
CD Technical’s Digital Delivery System (DDS) is the leading solution for independent video makers looking for worldwide distribution of their videos in every imaginable format. Sell your video as MP4 downloads and on DVD and Blu-ray discs from a custom branded e-store we create and host for you. (Starting at just $29.95/month.)
A Personalized Web Store for You
Instead of marketing your video products on a site with thousands of your competitors (i.e. iTunes, Amazon etc), we will build and host your video e-store away from your competition. No longer will you lose sales because a mega site like iTunes or Amazon referred your customer to another film maker and he made the sale instead.
No Programming Skills Required
We will design, build, host and maintain your video e-store at a surprisingly low fee. We will convert your DVD video discs to MP4 files for fast downloading at no extra charge. We handle credit card transactions and will ship your DVD and Blu-ray discs to your customers at no charge to you.
What we’ll do for you:
- Build a Personalized e-commerce video store for you.
- Sell and Ship Your Videos on DVD and Blu-ray discs.
- Download and Stream Your Videos in MP4 format, compatible with all portable players.
- DVD and Blu-Ray Duplication-on-Demand eliminates inventory costs.
- Order Taking using our shopping cart and credit card processing.
- Fulfillment we can ship your DVDs to any address on Earth at no charge to you, the seller.
A Web Store as Unique as Your Videos
Branding your e-store will give you an edge over the competition. Selling your video products on a mega site like Amazon© or iTunes© where you are hosted side by side with thousands of other video makers is becoming less and less desirable as a marketing strategy. Why would you allow your hard-earned audience to peruse the videos of other film makers when it was you they came to buy? It doesn’t make sense. You have carefully and thoughtfully cultivated your audience and you should be capturing their video purchases without danger of them being siphoned off by competitors on a mega reseller site. Remember, Amazon© and iTunes© doesn’t promote you and your videos – they promote themselves. Only your branded e-store will promote you.
Accounting for Independent Film Makers
Receive a detailed report of sales activity from your e-store at the end of every day. This report will include not only the products purchased but also complete contact information on each customer e.g. name, address, email and phone. And at the end of the month you will receive a check for total revenue minus monthly fees plus a spreadsheet accounting of all sales activity. Your monthly check from us represents your net profit from your e-store – no further accounting required!
Simple, Easy to Understand Pricing and No Revenue Sharing!
At CD Technical we do not share in your revenue stream. Ours is a fee-based service consisting of one very easy to afford monthly hosting fee plus a small order processing fee. This structure allows you to sell as much product as you can with no hidden fees and no escalating costs. And with our easy to customize merchandising options, you can package your video products in every configuration imaginable. Sell your movies by download or as streaming pay-per-view, or as part of a streaming subscription package, or on DVDs and Blu-ray discs, or by digital download cards and in any combination thereof.
Add other physical merchandise like T-shirts, posters, caps and etc at no additional charge. You can even sell books and CD audio on your e-store. Sell your videos or give away sample tracks at public events using our digital download cards instead of hauling boxes of DVDs around. Or sell your DVD or Blu-ray disc with a free download. Or offer an MP4 download with the purchase of a DVD. The marketing possibilities are endless!
