Monetizing Long-Form Video (panelist)
Everyone has heard about ways that online video can be monetized, but has anyone ever
heard an actual case study depicting success in video monetization? For all the
talk of short-form videos from YouTube and other UGC sites, professionally
produced, long-from video content may have the best potential to create
sustainable online video monetization. With the rise of Hulu and major
syndication deals making long form video more prominent, if not prolific
online, what is working today for content owners and portals that want to
monetize this format? This session will show actual success stories with
actionable takeaways, as well as a discussion of what the future holds for the
success of long-form content.
