    David Edwards, Senior Manager, Virtual Events (BrightTALK)
    Developing a multi-event strategy can help teams of all sizes reap the rewards of stable, ongoing revenue generation. Where B2B virtual events can show their value is not the influx of engagement you get in a single day, but in the building of community over multiple events, verticals, and activities.

    Running large-scale events can often feel like managing a sequence of big, individual projects. Let us guide you step-by-step through creating and launching your recurring event strategy. Our hands-on approach will coach you through everything from how to get past the physical event mentality to hyper-targeting audiences using engagement data.
  • B2B Video Production: Live vs. Pre-Recorded Jun 16 2021 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Frank Hanley, Greg Johnson, Steve Madeja, and MB Welch (BrightTALK)
    As marketers, we’re looking for the ideal mix: great content that our audience likes and isn’t exhausting for us to execute. Live webinars get more engagement but content can get more views on-demand. Presenters feel more comfortable pre-recording, but that means more work for your team.

    “I’m team live because it’s way more interesting,” says MB Welch, Producer (BrightTALK). “Yes, it’s unpredictable, but it’s also real, and real is what your audience wants.”

    In the end, which is best? In this episode, we’ll explore how leveraging both live and pre-recorded video can help you get the most out of your hard work. We’ll strategize the scenarios that work best for each and demonstrate how to use both together to broaden your content’s reach.

    Join Greg Johnson and Frank Hanley, along with Steve Madeja and MB Welch, as they take you behind the scenes with The Studio, the BrightTALK content series pulling back the curtain on B2B video production in the marketing world.
