VIDEO MARKETING: What’s Working, What’s Not | August 23
We have all seen that video has become a critical part of the marketing mix over the last few years from the use of video conferencing at events to the promotion of products through viral videos on YouTube. The SFAMA’s next event will look into why video has become an increasingly more popular tool, the key ingredients to creating the best video for your audience and what we will see next in the space. Our panel of experts will give you the tips and tricks of the trade and highlight what has worked for them and their clients including what to avoid.
With the increasing speeds of the Internet, mobile technology and the computerization of IT we are just touching on the potential of what video can offer!
