PALM BEACH, Fla., Oct. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The global public cloud software as a service (SaaS) markets one of the few economic markets that have actually thrived during the pandemic. Despite causing a global economic turmoil and negatively affecting some sectors, such as hospitality and travel, the COVID-19 pandemic has led to a sharp increase in demand for certain industries, like online gaming and ecommerce. Quarantines and lockdowns are driving huge spikes in online traffic in China, and digital marketing — already on the rise — may be more effective than ever. Many countries, especially China, have a growing middle and upper-middle class, driven by its robust economic growth over the past few decades. The fast-growing Chinese wealth has led to tremendous consumer opportunities for both domestic and foreign companies to expand their businesses to. Software adoption has been rising rapidly, especially in the advertising and marketing spaces, as both Chinese and foreign companies seek to effectively target and market towards Chinese customers, especially digitally where the captive Chinese consumers spend most of their time. With hundreds of millions of potential online customers and the growing wealth of businesses wanting to target them, huge potential exists in the Chinese digital advertising industry. Active Companies from around the market with current developments this week include: Oblong, Inc. (NYSE: OBLG), Business Warrior Corporation (OTCPK: BZWR), Magnite (NASDAQ: MGNI), Cloudfare, Inc. (NYSE: NET), Zoom Video Commumications, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZM).

The report said: "The online video streaming market has dramatically increased traction in commercial facilities with an evolution towards professional mobility with various applications such as Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Instagram, leveraging the strength of portable communication devices.

Business Warrior Corporation (OTCPK: BZWR) BREAKING NEWS: Business Warrior Announces Six Months Straight of Subscriber Growth - Business Warrior Corporation, the source for small businesses in America to get more customers, announces six months in a row of subscriber growth (March thru September). The rate at which new businesses have subscribed to the platform has increased by 300% per month since March, which shifted when the company made enhancements to their platform to help small businesses during COVID. Additionally, the company added a new suite of solutions to their software platform in July when they launched their Marketplace. Revenues generated from the Marketplace have increased consistently since July and this continues to be a major growth channel for the company.
Consistent growth in subscriber base combined with continuous monthly revenue growth from their marketplace products sets them up for long term success. Business Warrior is able to take a free subscriber on their software and upgrade them into paid products. These positive results indicate that the company is able to execute on their fundamentals, while they continue to scale operations and grow revenues.
Marketing Solution Excels with Video Advertising - The company's best performing solution in the Marketplace is their Marketing Plus package. This is a low cost entry level marketing solution that is priced for small businesses. For just $249 per month, businesses are able to get short professionally produced videos for advertising. Custom video advertisements are typically unaffordable to small businesses, yet Business Warrior continues to bring solutions to the small business community that were previously only available to large corporations with large budgets.
The company has been in beta testing with the video advertising feature since August and is now deploying the service to all subscribers who upgrade to either Marketing Plus or the Warrior Pro plan. The videos are built to deliver brand awareness, drive new leads, and boost sales conversions for the subscriber.
"Small Businesses need a complete arsenal of tools available to compete in today's marketplace. Videos are becoming table stakes for local businesses to showcase their services and talents. Our affordable pricing combined with video advertising, presents one of the most valuable ways a small business can improve their toolset to get more customers", says Jonathan Brooks, President of Business Warrior.
