ANN ARBOR, Mich., Sept. 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- While lawmakers in Washington D.C. argue over healthcare, a horse in Michigan has come up with a healthcare plan he thinks would satisfy politicians and the citizens they serve.
Tyler, a 27-year-old Tennessee Walking horse, and a member of the BarnSpeak.com community, said, "The folks representing us in Washington D.C. are too caught up in the political outcome of passing legislation, rather than how it impacts the citizens of our country. The lawmakers are checking off talking point boxes while protecting themselves at the ballot boxes."
BarnSpeak.com is a division of Skipstone, which was first brought to the public's attention during the Gary Johnson Presidential Campaign last Fall. Skipstone is a proprietary Conversational Video Platform that uses Augmented Reality to show that innovative tech improves our ability to communicate and that our conversations can go beyond talking points.
"Skipstone provides a two-way conversation between the viewer and the person or organization that is providing the video," said Troy Ontko, Founder and CEO of Skipstone. "BarnSpeak.com includes a variety of barn animals sharing ideas about the things that are impacting Americans and the world today by allowing for two-way conversation between the animals sharing ideas and the viewer."
Ontko believes this format will allow for enhanced communication in many ways. "Too often we try to keep a message so short, we cannot share enough information, " Ontko said. "With Skipstone, we can use more thorough, well-crafted messages to share more complete concepts and solutions."
Skipstone, which is a new but effective marketing strategy, allows the audience to tell the marketer what the audience wants to know. "For example, our topic today is healthcare, but if our audience is more concerned with our thoughts on North Korea, they simply type or talk into the prompts on the video player and immediately see the BarnSpeak.com view on North Korea," Ontko added. "We have found that audiences engage longer on topics of interest to them, and message length is less important with Skipstone."
Skipstone and BarnSpeak.com, which is located in Ann Arbor, MI can be shared on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and email. The BarnSpeak.com animals are currently being shared on those platforms. Licenses to Skipstone proprietary technology and production services are available to commercial and non commercial customers.
