The term ‘Charm’ indicates micro moments of desire within videos that viewers can save while watching video with a simple touch. Charms encapsulate immense possibilities of highly contextual discovery including but not limited to products seen in the video, context relevant brand stories and other placement of key information pertaining to the video moment being saved. This mind-set where the user is still open and has not yet zeroed down to the exact thing she wants is very attractive to brands. Charmboard enables purchases by providing direct links to the product pages on partners’ sites. Charms can be saved to thematic collections called ‘boards’.

On this occasion, Mr. GBS Bindra, Founder and CEO, Charmboard commented, “Charmboard provides a platform which inspires potential customers to discover brands organically whilst consuming video content. By being present in these intent-rich moments, brands are able to favourably influence the outcomes... We are leveraging video content as an impactful source of discovery and pioneering a non-intrusive way for brands to getting across to interested users. Completing one billion discoveries is a milestone not just for us but also for brands who have associated with us throughout these years. This shows the power and scale of digital video consumption and demonstrates how using AI, Charmboard is building a very large business off video.

On an average, Charmboard records 5 touches per video view on charm-enabled video, roughly 3 products are discovered per Charm and discovered product cards have 4 to 5% Click Through Rate.
