Igus Responds to the Itsy Bitsy Camera Slider
Not too long ago, I posted a video about the Itsy Bitsy Slider, which took a free slider sample from Igus and made into a working camera slider. It was a very high quality sample which made for a great little slider, even with the very short travel distance. Afterwards, Igus was so swamped with free sample requests they asked me to take their link down, which I did out of courtesy.
Now Igus project manager Matt Mowry (who had contacted me about the link), has sent me a response video with a lot of great information (which I've posted above). If you have the Itsy Bitsy Slider or any slider that uses Igus parts, you owe it to yourself to check out this video. It has info I never would have known had they not shared it.
This is video is also proof about the power of a cultivated audience. While I certainly don't get Itsy Bitsy Slider views on everything I post, when I hit the right topic, there are not only views, but viewer response. It's always interesting to see what happens when I post something that can be responded to and tracked. My Kickstarter campaign was an example of this, as was the reported 3,000 requests for the Igus free sample. It's influence that can't be denied and a testimony that your audience will not only respond (especially when there is something in it for them), but support. In fact, their response is a show of support.
