  • Where are we now, and where are our customers tomorrow?

    According to the CMO Council’s 2014 State of Marketing report, marketers’ investments into online video is taking the next evolutionary leap from experimentation into full-fledged testing. In order words, investments are increasing at a pace like never before. Why? Customers are viewing online video like never before.

    According to a recent report from Neilsen, online video consumption has risen from 13 minutes per day to 27 minutes. While this still pales in comparison to TV consumption, marketers have clearly seen that there is something to online video, and to be late to the game could be a disaster.

    This trend brings with it a slew of obvious questions: What ROI should we expect? What is getting reallocated? Does this mean TV ads should be pulled in favor of online? What content are people really viewing and how will my brand be relevant in that context?

    Join us as the CMO Council delves into a deep dive into online video, asking marketers and industry experts where the key trends, opportunities and pitfalls are when it comes to online video. What are industry leaders investing in…what content are they creating…and how is ROI really being measured?

  • Great content engages your audience, helps with lead generation, lets you learn where leads are in the buying process, and helps sell. Creating content that includes all of these components happens because it’s designed to pass leads along a guided pathway from basic curiosity toward a desire to buy. It includes clear directions toward action, with compelling content that encourage conversion. It can be used and reused across websites, blogs, emails and more.
