Skipstone Technology Delivers a New Way for Voters to Interact with the 2016 Presidential Candidates

Skipstone Launches

ANN ARBOR, Mich.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Skipstone, LLC is proud to announce
in order to provide a better way for voters to research candidate’s
positions on issues that are important to the individual voter.

is powered by Skipstone’s patent-pending Interactive Video Platform,
voters will be able to hear a candidate’s presentation of their overall
message, and during that message, ask a question directly to the
candidate’s video. A pre-recorded answer to a voter’s question will
play, allowing the voter to hear the candidate’s position directly from
a candidate’s pre-recorded video.

The companion to this is our AskLearnVote free app available in the App
Store for IOS and Android.

Troy Ontko, Founder and CEO of Skipstone says: “There is what we call an
‘Engagement Wall’ between voters and candidates, between consumers and
brands. This Wall means that too often we hear candidate’s positions
from sources other than the candidate themselves. Too often information
is out of context, or candidate’s words are twisted in a headline and
too often we hear information about candidates from someone who has an
agenda. Skipstone technology allows voters to virtually go directly to
the candidate and hear their position in the candidate’s own words.
Skipstone Technology tears down the ‘Engagement Wall’.”

“Today’s voters and Presidential candidates will see the same benefit to
Skipstone Interactive Technology that Consumers and Businesses enjoy for
Products and Services.” Says Katherine Mills, Skipstone Director of
Sales and Marketing. “There is no need for voters to sift through
information they are not interested in or that may not be accurate. They
simply ask their question and get their information directly from the
source. This should be the basis of researching candidate’s: hear their
position and then hear what others have to say about those positions.”
will feature candidates seeking their party’s nomination for President.
Voters and others simply click a candidate’s video and engage.

Campaigns will have the option of sending their Skipstone through social
media to better share their message. Candidates will have the
opportunity to submit content that better reflects their view, they can

Skipstone is hosting this service as a news source for voters; there is
no charge to campaigns for Skipstone views. General advertising will
fund this effort. “What better way to take money out of Politics”, says
Troy Ontko, “Sure commercials can be a distraction, but it is a small
price to pay to equalize the playing field and let the candidates rise
or fall on their merits and their positions. If we secure a title
sponsor for the website we can accomplish the same goal with fewer ads.”

Finally the benefit of analytics to candidates equals the benefits to
brands. Never before could we hear right from the consumer, or in this
case the voter, in real time, in the moment. What better focus group is
there than the actual voting public.
