Why you shouldn't wait to launch your first interactive video, Techstars' 'Where Are They Now,' and more highlights from October


We hope you had time to recover from your Halloween candy hangover over the weekend. We had a great Halloween here at Rapt Media, but more importantly, we had a fantastic month. In addition to being announced as a finalist in Mashable’s Mashies Awards for Best Interactive Ad Execution, our CEO and co-founder Erika Trautman was also featured in Entrepreneur's “Best Advice, Biggest Failures, & Defining Success From 14 Inspiring Entrepreneurs” story alongside entrepreneurs such as Mark Cuban, Barbara Corcoran, and Guy Kawasaki, and Rapt Media was featured in Techstars new “Where Are They Now?” video series.

In terms of a great client example, UK-based Confused.com launched its Rapt Media-powered interactive video to put a fun twist on life insurance by showing how many ways you can die in a day. We love Confused.com’s creative use of the Rapt Media platform. Now is the time to create interactive videos. Here’s why you shouldn’t wait until 2015 to launch your first interactive video experience.
