It's time for tweaking JellyTelly! We're making some changes based on your feedback, and you'll start to see those in the next few days. One of the biggest requests was to be able to watch the "Sunday Movie of the Week" on more than just Sunday. So, as some of you have noticed, we're now showing the Movies of the Week on Saturday AND Sunday, making them, I guess, "Movies of the Weekend." The Sunday movies have proven quite popular, so we'll give you more of what you like!
We've also given Buck Denver his own Facebook page. Look him up and become a friend – he's very social. Certain JellyTelly shorts will soon be showing up on YouTube and GodTube as well, so spreading the Jelly is going to get easier and easier.
We've had requests from children's pastors to be able to use some of our shorts in churches, so we've launched a very simple downloads site. It's at "www.JellyBits.com" and you can purchase and download some of your favorite JellyTelly bits to incorporate into your kids ministry. We've started out with our Bible summary segments from Sunday School Lady and the Bentley Brothers. We'll be adding more as we get specific requests. For those of you accustomed by buying clips for church use from Sermon Spice or Worship House for $15 to $20 a clip, you'll be happy to know we're pricing all JellyTelly clips at $4.99. What a deal! You can't afford not to! We'll be adding some package pricing as well in case your church wants to buy a whole bunch of clips for a reduced price.
On top of all that, we hope to have the next version of the JellyTelly site launched in the next couple of days. Not all the new features will be immediately available (still working on the high score mechanism, I believe), but the site will look better and work better overall.
We've been busy little beavers… er, jellyfish… here in the lab. Oh yes, very busy…
Yay! Thanks, Phil, for providing us a way to legally buy and download some of this content! We’re loving JT – Dr Schniffenhousen is one of our favorites – we especially enjoyed his commentary on the spelunking expedition…re-doing MSI films was such a brilliant idea – I wish I’d thought of doing that! We’re still praying for you guys!
Way cool. Not sure what we’ll purchase right away, but I’m sure one or two of those videos will come in house. We’ve been wondering about where to get the Bentley Brothers videos and our family definitely enjoyed those quite a bit. I can’t even think what I’d ask for specifically other than that (at least right now). Most of the main content seems to be available already so it’s just the shorts that we’re interested in getting this way.
I appreciate offering the Movie of the Week more than just Sunday – those tend to be pretty busy for our family so we tend to miss more often than we’d like. Perhaps that will help a little. You’ve definitely given us some good movies that we would not have seen otherwise.
Looking forward to more Books of the Bible clips in the future (at least hoping they’re coming). Congratulations on all you’ve accomplished so far!
Well, I’ve been searching on Facebook for Buck, but I’m not finding him. Can we get more info on his profile to help narrow it down? I’d guess hometown is Wheaton…
Oh, ok…maybe I should try searching for JellyTelly. *blush*
I can’t find Buck Denver. Any clues?
Great News Phil! Although I too seem to not be able to locate buck, there is a jellytelly fan club, but no buck 🙁
oripomerantz.comI love the idea of JellyBits. Among other things, it lets people with unusual religions select which clips are appropriate for them. I made a list for Jews. I don’t know if it will help your sales much, but it certainly won’t hurt. The principal of my synagogue’s religious school already expressed interest.
The lack of knowledge of the Bible is appalling. We need more Bentley Brothers and the Sunday School Lady.
new.facebook.comFor those of you looking for Buck Denver’s profile on facebook, I am pasting the link straight to it.
To make things easier.
I love the new downloads for purchase. I want to buy a couple Bentley Brothers just so we can watch them whenever we want (my daughter is becoming quite the fan).
Also, I noticed on one or two shows there is a URL listed, but most of them don’t have that. Is that something you are planning for the in-house bits, at least?
facebook.comLooks good, Phil! And I love the downloads for purchase, too. Fantastic! I also might suggest that you adjust the facebook settings so that Buck’s profile is publicly viewable.
Great job and keep up the great work. God bless!
So Buck Denver’s privacy settings are set so that anyone should be able to find him, and yet, if you type in Buck Denver, he doesn’t pop up!!
I’m not sure why this is happening bc I’ve scoured his settings, but if you do a search for Buck Denver and then add that he works for “JellyTelly” (one word) he then is the only name that pops up.
I hope that helps and we’ll keep working to figure out why facebook seems to be hiding Buck…
Found Buck! Who-hoo! Confirm me as a friend!
Hey, I would like to show a comercial/promo of Jelly Telly in my church, but we don’t have internet there. Is there somewhere where I can download a promo/commercial?
Oh wait, maybe I can download the “what if” off of youtube.
Where did Quacky go?
I can’t get enough of Buck, The Fabulous Bentley Brothers, and Michael. I make sure my kids check out JellyTelly daily. Thanks for the good work.
I have a feeling that was a test idea from years back….. Looks to be from another era of JellyTelly history…. Am I right?
What do you mean about Quacky? What test idea, did i miss something.
Oh – I think I mixed up Quacky with that other duck – Bible Investigator…… With the bunny…. And the alliteration….. That duck. I have no clue about Quacky (or they other duck for that matter….)
I like the new site, I’m already linking to it on my blog.
yea, i miss Daniel Duck- Bible Investorgator.
New site is uber cool!
Quacky was the duck in the intro video that had alot of questions
Hey, I just watched your “February Update,” a week early 🙂
All of that is really awesome news. Although, I’m kind of annoyed that people don’t seem interested in the $3 a month deal for membership. It’s such an amazing investment. BUT, I will continue spreading the word on Facebook- that has been a very good venue- way to go with that. I’m also forwarding the jellybits website to all of my peers in children’s ministry and to our preaching team (come on, who doesn’t want to hear a Bentley Brothers song before sitting through a sermon out of 2nd Samuel?!?!).
Did Buck Denver get deleted from Facebook? I followed the link in one of the above comments, and typed in the search as suggested with his work info, and nothing at all came up…oh well
I just found out about JellyTelly today, and I’m totally psyched about it! 🙂
