San Jose, CA August 28, 2012 --Liveclicker, Inc., the leading provider of video commerce solutions for the web’s top brands, today announced the release of its newest video commerce application, Video Voice. Video Voice enables retailers and brands to create highly customizable user-generated video programs designed to increase customer interaction.

• Enables participants and shoppers to upload videos directly from smartphones and webcams.
• Measures the performance of user generated videos within the Liveclicker Video Commerce Platform.
• Allows customization of user generated video contests and programs to match the look and feel of the brand.
The world’s leading online retailer of bags, eBags.com, is utilizing Video Voice to engage its customer base with user-submitted video contests. Since launching a 2 week-long user generated video contest with Video Voice on eBags.com’s sister site, Handbags.com, the bag retailer increased month over month video plays by over 19X. The merchant also achieved substantial growth in its social footprint through the video contest from increased Facebook likes and video shares. eBags.com has since launched additional video contests on its main site.
