We’ve all heard the saying: “It’s all about who you know”. Finding the right connections can sometimes be a hassle especially when you potentially have hundreds of connections to filter through.
Hachi attempts to solve this problem by finding the right people for you. Their product is currently in private beta and their demo is an important aspect of making you sign up.
Their demo is front and center of the landing page and is the only thing that describes the product.
Hachi, while a great idea, doesn’t have the greatest voice quality in their demo and this is all I could concentrate on while watching this video. The animation is rock solid and the script is a flawlessly read but I have to say the lack of quality in the recording ruins the demo for me.
As one of my colleagues stated, the demo sounds like it came out of a B-rated 80’s film, something that shouldn’t be happening in this day and age unless it’s the intended styling of the demo.
Nonetheless, if their demo wasn’t the center piece of their marketing strategy to get private beta users then perhaps this issue wouldn’t bother me so much. But since the demo is my first and only impression of the product I can only hope this is something they are planning on resolving.
Sound quality is and should be just as important as the video quality, especially when your demo is the only call to action you have to get users.
For this demo I am giving two ratings:
1) Judging the demo as is I am giving it a 2.5/5. (This is solely based on how distracting the bad sound quality is).
2) Putting recording quality aside Hachi’s demo gets 4 out of 5. It really does a great job of conveying that Hachi can simplify making connections for you.
All that said I’m signing up for the beta!
What are your thoughts WhatWe.Be community? Do you agree or disagree that sound quality is just as important as video quality?
