PGA Tour Pros Jim Furyk and Fred Funk Now on Zipidee

Expert insight’s golf video available on the Zipidee marketplace.

San Francisco, CA, December 21, 2007 --( Zipidee announced that former US Open champion Jim Furyk and PGA Tour Pro Fred Funk are selling their popular golf video on the Zipidee marketplace.

Furyk, best known for his distinctive looping swing, and Funk, noted for his driving accuracy, teamed up for an instructional video offering an insider’s guide to the short game. In “Short Game Golf,” Furyk and Funk cover lob shots, chipping, short bunker shots, putting from the fringe, and other strategies and techniques for improving one’s golf score.

Their video is available on Zipidee as a result of a partnership with Expert Insight, the company that produced it. This partnership grants consumers around the world on-demand access to “Short Game Golf,” whereas previously customers had to wait for a DVD to arrive in the mail.

Zipidee is the Internet’s largest digital marketplace for PGC (prosumer generated content) educational, instructional, and special interest programming. Much like the marketplace eBay created for sellers to monetize their physical goods, Zipidee has created a platform to allow sellers to monetize their digi-goods.

“Jim and Fred’s video is a valuable addition to Zipidee’s digital library of content,” stated Henry Wong, CEO of Zipidee. “With our turnkey platform, we have enabled their digital distribution strategy and introduced them to an additional revenue channel, as well as new customers who will discover their video in our marketplace.”

Zipidee is gearing up for the holidays with seasonal promotions. They anticipate increased sales of “Short Game Golf,” as a digital stocking stuffer for golf enthusiasts. Digi-Gifts are touted as the new trend in holiday giving, as they are unique, environmentally friendly, and can be sent to anyone, anywhere.
