Building Audiences On and Off YouTube

Early Bird Tickets have SOLD OUT so be sure to RSVP NOW before all the tickets are gone!

Over 100 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute. As more and more channels are crowding the space, it is becoming increasingly important for creators to not only employ new techniques to grow audiences on YouTube, but grow their fan bases off-platform, where they can unlock new pathways to revenue.

Join us for a candid conversation from leaders in this emerging diversification strategy, and learn how to best use social media platforms to grow your presence on YouTube, engage your community, and drive traffic to destination websites.

Previous Events:

Our Spring 2012 Meetup, Creative Marketing in Social Video, turned to the experts to continue the conversation of our contentious Cheaters panel. From small companies trying to break through the noise to global brands vying to edge out their competitors, getting noticed online is what its all about, and our panelists have turned video marketing into an art form.

Our Winter 2012 Meetup, Do Cheaters Never Prosper?, took a hard look at the controversial topic of “cheating” in which marketers game the system to maximize viewership. We explored the most ingenious—and most unscrupulous—techniques in practice.

Our Fall 2011 Meetup, Social Video on Steroids, our panel of experts from Klout, EQAL, and Attention Span Media shared how to engage and drive audiences using best practices in social media marketing and promotion.

Our Summer 2011 Meetup, Beyond YouTube, set out to discover what other ways online video creators are reaching and building audiences, and how they’re optimizing revenue.  We asked the panelists whether YouTube is the be-all-end-all in online video, or rather an important component in a more complete online video business strategy—and it turned out to be quite a hot topic.

Panelists included Dane Boedigheimer of The Annoying Orange, Wilson Cleveland of CJP Digital Media, Barrett Garese of, Dan Weinstein of the Collective Digital Studio, and Jason Calacanis of Mahalo and This Week In.

Our Spring 2011 Meetup, The Digitour Debriefed,  was the last stop on The Digitour 2011, a 27-city national tour of top web stars with over one billion combined views and more than six million subscribers on YouTube.

The Digitour revealed a new way for online talent to connect with, engage, and monetize fans—and proves that web celebrity translates to live audiences, just as “real” Hollywood stars and musicians do. The success of The Digitour indicates the beginning of something big—really big—a major paradigm shift in the way studios, advertisers, networks, and investors will regard the online video industry going forward.

Panelists included Sarah EvershedExecutive Producer of The Digitour and President of The Cloud Media, along with Digitour performers Dave DaysDeStorm, and MysteryGuitarMan.

Our Winter 2011 Meetup, You’re A YouTube Partner—Now What?, was also a great success. Panelists included Reckless TortugaThe Fine BrothersBarely Political and Co-Developer of the YouTube Partner Program, George Strompolos. The event was sold out, filling the Mile High Ballroom at Busby’s to capacity, and tens of thousands tuned into the Stickam live stream.
