#smeast Session: Utilizing YouTube As An Online Video Platform

sm-west-arowsAs viewers continue to flock to YouTube, brands are reevaluating it as a practical alternative to costly online video platforms. At the Streaming Media East show, taking place May 21-22 in NYC, we’ve got a session where experts will critique YouTube’s cost benefits, built-in audience, established marketing channels, native device compliance, and technical features, as well as discuss YouTube’s platform as a destination for engagement. Learn the pros and cons of using YouTube as a video platform and hear which content and distribution strategies YouTube is best suited for. Confirmed speakers for the session include:

  • Moderator: Paul Kontonis, Chairman, International Academy of Web Television
  • Vanessa Pappas, Head of Audience Development, YouTube
  • Paul Cooney, YouTube Partnership Manager, AOL
  • Rob Sandie, CEO, Founder, vid.io
