We are looking for a video that will go viral so it needs to fit into one of these categories:

  •  Super funny
  •  Life-changingly scary
  •  Amazingly heroic
  •  Controversial
  •  Emotionally charged
  •  Taboo

No swearing nor nudity in the video please.

You could also play off of something that has already gone viral or bridge any big news or viral topic in the online security niche. (Be sure copyright laws are followed).

About Trust Guard's services:

Trust Guard performs regular PCI scans on business' websites, servers and POS terminals. We scan for vulnerabilities that hackers could use to gain access to vital/private information. We find the issue first then notify the business owner what was found and how to fix it. Once they fix the issue their company is protected from hackers. (Notice, we do not fix the issue, we just let the company know where the issues are so that they can fix them. Just wanted to be clear there, so that we don't give the wrong impression of what we do.)

If a business got hacked the owner would need to do the following:

  1. Notify all their customers, their merchant account company (and or bank) to let them know what happened (embarrassing and painful).
  2. Fix their website and remove any malware, ransomware and other such coding off their servers.
  3. Pay huge fines around $200 per person whose information was compromised if they weren't PCI compliant.

Just one hack could cost them their entire business plus.

Additional bonus that business owners get when they use Trust Guard to scan their website is that they get a trust seal to put on their website. We guarantee they will make more sales with our seal or they get double their money back within the first 60 days. Customers who display the Trust Guard seal on their website see an average revenue increase of 15%.

We are open to fun ideas to get this message across. Some great viral video ideas:

We are looking for a video that really drives home the fact that they need security scanning or they will be hating life after getting hacked.

We have our Trust Guard logo and trust seal images available for you to use in your video. Just send an email to [email protected] to let us know that you'd like to use those images in your video and we'll send you access to them right away.

Optional: We would love to hear your pitch and approve it before you create the video to be sure the message is right and not misleading about what we do. To have us approve your pitch, email [email protected] with your contact info and we'll call you to schedule a time to hear your pitch.
