Very numerous as well are video marketing and advertising services. Examples are the social and viral video marketing services Milyoni and Virool. Then and surprising as described is a whole range of services dedicated to video marketing on YouTube in particular. Surprisingly, since this was hardly the case so far and even though YouTube is by far the undisputed market leader of video sharing platforms. Although there has always been the sporadic occurrence of services with extensions to YouTube functions such as interactive video concrete marketing solutions have not existed or have not gained attraction. Other services are providing support services to creators of video content, which can be seen as a concession to the realization of a permanent establishment from YouTube. Two such supporter services with a similar approach are Fullscreen and Maker. Both support its members in the development and marketing of their video content and at the same time in monetizing. A new starter in this context is TubeStart, a crowdfunding service specifically financing YouTube activities. Concretely dedicated to YouTube Marketing are the services vidIQ, which includes the YouTube analytics feature vidIQ vision. The latter is what tubular makes accessible in real time. The same occurrences by the way have been found related to Google+ with zipl.us being an example.

Finally, the convergence of offline and online data. Approaches are known e.g. from the use of credit information by services like Cardlytics. In a similar way LiveRamp combines crm data with online marketing facilities and the above mentioned service Factual has to be mentioned in this context as well. Not to be seen without criticism regarding the much quoted data privacy breaches today are the ambitions of Amscreen, a large out of home media and digital signage network. Amscreen has recently acquired the face detection company Quividi and thus can personalize digital signage advertising. Furthermore amscreen acquired the realtime analytics company OptimEyes leading to personalized advertising on digital signage displays happening in real time. Even finer results may come out by a new Google patent dedicated to its Google Glass project. In this context Google received a patent on monitoring eye movements and emotional reactions.
