So You Want To Know How To Make Great Video Content

Video content only represents 3% of posts, but is the most likely to be reblogged across all post types.


Sometimes when video is discussed, there’s a sort of marketer shuffle: hands clench, heads freeze, eyes bulge, and a fog of fear rolls in. On social media, almost everyone shares thoughts and snapshots, but engaging brand videos aren't as easy. Video is still seen as a sort of Everest, surmountable, but hard. Next week at Adweek’s Webinar we’ll unpack what it takes to start-up and succeed with your video content planning across your channels.


But it doesn’t have to be scary

Join us for this edu-taining event with Spredfast VP of Research and Insight, Chris Kerns. Then, hear from Anheuser-Busch InBev, Director of Edelman Digital, Mike Raspatello and SVP, Spike Jones on what goes into a successful social video strategy. They will cover:

(a) The latest intelligence on video content marketing

(b) The keys to building out a video content program

(c) Insights for developing the kind of content your audience will share.


Here’s a little more background on our esteemed panel of speakers.
